Stafford Boating and Sailing Holidays

Including narrowboats, river cruisers, yacht charter, cruising, based or starting in Stafford.

A vibrant market town on the banks of the River Sow, this county town was created by King Alfred’s daughter, Aethelfraed, in the Middle Ages. Much later it became a centre for shoe making. The remains of one of two old castles can still be seen and acts as a backdrop to many events, including Shakespearian plays. The top attraction here, though, is the Elizabethan High House, England’s largest timber-framed house, which has now become a local museum. The remarkable Williams Salt Library, run by a charitable trust, is contained in an 18th century house.

Beyond Stafford stands magical Shugborough Hall, ancestral pile of the Earls of Lichfield. Restored by the National Trust, it has a magnificent collection of furniture and paintings while beyond are splendid gardens and parkland dotted with curious monuments. The Staffordshire County Museum resides in the Hall’s domestic buildings.

Close to Stafford is the beautiful mansion of Weston Park and its huge park landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown. The interior contains tapestries, paintings and furniture. Nearby Doxey Marshes is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. More ...

In this section we give details of self-catering boats for hire on canals, rivers, lakes; yacht charter, flotilla sailing, cruising with or without crew, sail training, etc. in Stafford or surrounding areas.
