Welcome to Blithfield Lakeside Barns. 

Blithfield Lakeside Barns

Nestled in the idyllic Staffordshire Countryside, next to a beautiful 790 acre lake, you will find Blithfield Lakeside Barns. Tastefully converted by the Brown family in 2003, we are perfect for romantic getaways and family reunions. 


Situated just 2 miles from the ancient village of Abbots Bromley, which boasts a wealth of traditional pubs and restaurants.  


We are also 4 miles from Cannock Chase, which is an area of outstanding natural beauty and to the southern end of the Peak District.

"What a beautiful place with a beautiful backdrop of the lake and surrounding greenery from almost every cottage. Really enjoyed our time here. Thank you for creating such a great venue to bring families together."

The Cottages

Our cottages have been beautifully furnished, to such a high standard that we have been awarded 4 stars by Visit Britain! 

Each cottage has a private patio, overlooking the scenic Blithfield Reservoir, along with a communal lawn area that is open for children to have fun!

Due to the buildings being original barns, they do have steps and narrow passages, making them only suitable for Easy Walking Access.  

Blithfield Lake

Blithfield Reservoir

Blithfield Reservoir

Blithfield Reservoir is a beautiful 790-acre lake set in the rolling hills of Blithe Valley. 

The reservoir was created by building a dam across the nearby River Blithe, channelling water into the valley alongside it. The reservoir took 500 men more than six years to complete and was officially opened by the Queen Mother in October 1953.

All of our cottages overlook the picturesque view of the lake, and you may even be lucky enough to spot some of the rare birdlife around the lake!
