Holiday Rental for Groups of Families and Friends. Shallowford House, Stone, Staffordshire, sleeps 20 - 38 in 25 bedrooms.
Most of the year Shallowford House is used extensively for Christian Retreats and Conferences for both residential and day guests. We are also available to self catering guests who are looking for something more relaxed and less structured, with sole use of the house and grounds for the duration of your stay.
The house is well presented and offers comfortable surroundings, and can sleep up to 41 people in 25 rooms with a mix of single, twin and double rooms. There are 4 bedrooms on the ground floor and 2 of these rooms are accessible for wheelchair users. Upstairs there are a further 21 bedrooms of which 20 have ensuite facilities, and one has its own shower and toilet just across the narrow hall. We do permit guests to bring additional camp beds and bedding if necessary to increase the occupancy.
Free WiFi is available in all parts of the house.
Set in 9 acres of grounds there is a balanced mix of formal gardens, meadows and a small nature reserve which is home to some rare and protected species. We have a collection of animals including chickens, alpacas and goats. There are 3 summer houses around the grounds, 2 of which have electricity making them usable all year round. Close to the house is a fire pit with fixed seating; this is a popular spot and the ideal place to enjoy a barbecue - a large gas barbecue is available to hire for your use.
Our own private car parks can hold 40 cars.
On-site activities can be bought in at an extra cost and include archery.
The group leader will be met on the day of arrival and shown how everything works so as to make the most of the facilities. You will also be given the mobile number of the duty manager who will be available to help you with any queries that may arise.
Guests are responsible for cleaning all public areas before departure, but can choose to prebook cleaning services.
