Travel Guide to holidays in... Leek, Staffordshire, England

Leek is a market town in Staffordshire, England. It is located within a few miles of Meerbrook, Ipstones, Kingsley, Froghall and Kingsley Holt and is one of about 30 towns or villages in Staffordshire in which Go2 has cottages or holidays lets available. The nearest cities are Manchester (population 394,269), Derby (population 229,407), and Birmingham (which has a population of 970,892 according to the 2001 Census).

With its location near to the Staffordshire moorland and also the Pennines, Leek is a great location for those seeking a walking or outdoor holiday. There is also the nearby Rudyard Lake and the steam railway which runs by it as well as many interesting sights in the town itself. Follow the links to find holiday cottages and lets available in this area on Go2, or view the surrounding area on the map below.

Long famous for its potteries and its beer, Staffordshire also lays claim to not one but two of England’s most popular visitor attractions. All the more reason to take a break in one of our holiday cottages in Staffordshire.

Staffordshire’s largest city is Stoke-on-Trent, also known as The Potteries. This has been the centre of Britain’s ceramic industry for centuries, and the home of such famous names as Wedgwood and Royal Doulton. If you’re a fan of good English ale, then our Staffordshire cottage holidays are the ideal opportunity for a visit to Burton-on-Trent, where the unique quality of the water gave rise to the town’s brewing heritage.

But it’s not all industry in Staffordshire. You can enjoy some lovely countryside in the Peak District, Cannock Chase and the Staffordshire Moorlands – great for walking and wildlife enthusiasts. And then there is Alton Towers, one of the UK’s premier visitor attractions with a truly scary selection of rollercoasters, as well as Drayton Manor, which has some exciting white knuckle rides of its own. The small city of Lichfield, which still retains its old world charm is also well worth a visit.
