Frequently Asked Questions

1. Can I come and see you? Where are you based?

Our offices are in the centre of the historic market town of Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands - between the Potteries and the Peak District. Normally, you are very welcome to visit us during normal office hours - we love to meet all our holidaymakers. However, due to the current circumstances, for the safety and protection of our colleagues we are unable to accept visitors.
