Visit Britain 5 Stars Guest House

Colton House is a special place to stay providing a luxury personal service to all its guests in individually designed bedrooms, some with original beamed ceilings, ornate plasterwork ceilings or cast iron fireplaces. Beds are extremely comfortable and up to 6’0’’ wide. Rooms have LCD or Plasma TVs with some as big as 60” one room has its own Wii. Freeview is standard and free Wi Fi is available anywhere in the house and parts of the 1.5 acre garden. There is comfortable seating in each bedroom, a hospitality tray and a choice of duvet or blankets/ sheets. Each room has a mini bar with beer, wine, soft drinks, water and chocolates. Attention to detail as well as the quiet village setting ensures you have a good night’s sleep.

Bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms with shower and bath, many with multi jet body power showers, others include one with a double ended cast iron roll top bath or another with a 5’ dia. round Jacuzzi, all have luxury toiletries and plush dressing gowns.

A well-stocked oak paneled bar is open 24/7, a comfortable lounge and a dining room with seating for 24. Breakfast wins awards every year with a very wide choice.

Situated in a quiet village, close to The National Memorial Arboretum, Shugborough, Alton Towers, Drayton Manor, the potteries, Cannock Chase, Lichfield etc.

Available for conferences, team building, or corporate events, it is ideal for groups up to 30 but can accommodate 80. Companies use the secluded nature of the place to have confidential meetings / interviews or just to walk about and develop ideas with staff or others they wish to work with. For these events you can choose just a coffee or a buffet, full sit down meal or for something different, perhaps a hog roast. You just have to decide and Ron & Gay will help make the event all you want it to be.

With all this space and the ability to take over a whole house, ideal events are small wedding receptions, birthday parties and christenings.

Environmental Statement

In designing the rooms we were mindful of the environment and tried to provide comfort with an eye to renewable/energy efficient equipment. Double glazed windows and are fitted with draft excluders. Insulation on the external walls, floor and roof space is at the highest level possible. Carpets have a high wool content; the underlay is a recycled material, sheets and blankets are natural fibres. The toilets are low volume flush models. Heating is by the most energy efficient boiler available using thermostatically controlled skirting radiators and under floor heating when possible. Energy efficient bulbs are used, wherever possible. Organic methods are used to grow vegetables, paper, and kitchen waste is recycled. We buy local produce where possible. Leaflets are available on local environmental attractions including circular walks. We ask that towels to be washed are placed in the bath; otherwise they are dried and returned for reuse, the washing is completed overnight
