Park Lodge, once an old hunting lodge, is a fabulous country house situated on the edge of a working arable farm. The holiday property is full of character, with open fires, wooden floors, oak shutters and an impressive wood-panelled entrance hall. This wonderful property offers spacious, comfortable accommodation for groups of friends or a large family in a truly picturesque setting. From the house and lawned gardens, enjoy panoramic and uninterrupted views over the whole of the Bagot’s Park Estate. There is a small adjoining occupied cottage. The traditional market town of Uttoxeter is just 5 miles from the property, with weekly markets, a local golf course and Uttoxeter Racecourse. The city of Lichfield, 15 miles, is full of history, boasting the only medieval cathedral in Europe with 3 spires, and it is also the birthplace of Samuel Johnson. Shugborough Hall is a 15-minute drive away. For younger guests, Drayton Manor theme park and zoo is a 30-minute drive, as is Alton Towers. For those with more restful plans, a health spa can be found close by. The property is an ideal base for walkers, as the renowned Staffordshire Way footpath crosses the farm, and is easily accessed from Park Lodge by walking a few hundred yards down a concrete road. There is good road access for the Peak District, and in addition, the Potteries are within a 30-minute drive, with numerous factory shops and the history of Josiah Wedgwood and the pottery industry. Shop and pub 3 miles.
