Expensive - or cheap? - holiday

The most expensive holiday home in Staffordshire is probably Caverswall Castle, which will cost you £5,000 for the weekend. 
However, paradoxically, it's also among the best value lets - you'd get accommodation for over 30 adults & children for that, so it works out better if you think of it per-person!
The Moat House (annexe) is even cheaper at £1000 for seven people for the weekend.

The bizarre thing is that it is quite tucked-away. This moated entrance is squeezed down a small lane between Caverswall village's two churches, and the castle and its grounds are almost totally hidden from view.

The 'castle' is actually a 17th century rebuild, though the original medieval walls are still extant.


  1. £166 quid each or £142 each, not too bad, does that include being fed?

    1. Hi Bill. No, it's self-catreing - but the Red House pub, 100 yards away, does some great pub meals!
