Stafford’s rural heritage is embodied in Izaak Walton’s Cottage, the charming 16th century home of the celebrated author of ‘The Complete Angler.’ The thatched, half-timbered cottage at Shallowford, near Eccleshall gives a fascinating insight into the history of angling and the life of a writer whose work remains ‘a unique celebration of the English countryside.’ Wander through the historic rose and herb garden or enjoy the heritage events which are held here regularly.

More information on these events can be found on our website.
