Sandwiched between Christmas and New Year, Twixmas is the ideal time for a short break to the best of the West Midlands to wind down after the festive furore and prepare for 2015.

The diverse county of Staffordshire is a great place to escape and get snug in a cosy cottage, historic inn, luxury yurt or grand country hotel. Head to the sleepy Peak District to Beechenhill Farm or Secret Cloud House Holidays or indulge in luxury accommodation at the grand Weston Park or pampering at Moddershall Oaks Country Spa Retreat.

Fingers crossed for snow because the county is home to the stunning National Forest Way, a 75 mile track, as well as woody Cannock Chase and The Roaches where jagged gritstone cliffs will meet the more adventurous types. Foodies will love Staffordshire’s festive feasts made from local and seasonal produce and families are promised plenty of fun-filled events.

Or why not head to the historic market town of Shrewsbury where crisscrossing medieval streets, endless boutiques and quirky independents await.

From a blockbuster in a Tudor cinema to an amble along the riverbanks, there is plenty to see and do in Shrewsbury. If you’re looking for some festive fun and merriment, the talented team at The Libertine on Butcher Row make some mean Christmas cocktails. Or if you fancy a more relaxing approach to Twixmas, tucked away at the top of the old welsh chapel, St Nicholas’s Café, Bar and Spa is well worth a visit for a spot of rest and relaxation.

Shrewsbury's hotels also ooze history. You can retreat to sleep in Scandi-chic at the Lion and Pheasant or crash out in Prince Rupert’s bedroom.
