Persimmon Homes


The beautiful county town of Stafford has stately homes, industrial landmarks and fun family adventures. There are wildlife experiences as well as walking trails – one inspired by Lord of the Rings author, JRR Tolkien. The ecclesiastical heritage is second to none, with Norman churches and hidden chapels. The imposing Stafford Castle is 1,000 years old, dating back to the reign of William the Conqueror.
