STOP PRESS - we were recently awarded "GOLD" in the 2017 Staffordshire Tourism Awards (1st place!) for "Best Self-catering accommodation in Staffordshire" and Highly commended (3rd) for "Sustainability in Staffordshire" - impressive when we were up against organisations like Alton Towers and Drayton Manor Park!!!!  Yeah - well done us!

Adders waking up

Spring has arrived on Cannock Chase - the adders are waking up so be careful when walking dogs - always keep to the paths.  They are a bit groggy this time of year and unlikely to move away quickly.  If you think your dog has been bitten seek vet advice immediately.

Sleep tight Portia

We had a lovely Christmas and New Year holiday - hope you did too.  Unfortunately we had to say goodbye to our eldest dog Portia on boxing day - she was 13 years old - the equivalent of 104......

We miss her.......

Autumn is now starting to show her beauty in the changing colours of the leaves - this is my favourite time of year here on Cannock Chase.  We still have sunshine but there is a lovely freshness to the air.  We still have a few weeks available so why not explore everything that autumn has to offer on Cannock Chase and then retreat to a warm luxurious cottage.


Bookings up

Since the new website went live last month, our bookings have increased for this year and next if you are thinking about booking Dalraddy Cottage for a holiday or just a break in the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, do not leave it too long ......or you may be disappointed.

I thought it was about time I updated our doggy news.  Unfortunately we can't accept other pets here because of our beautiful German Shepherd bitches......
