Very relaxing and away from the hustle and bustle. The location is very close to the Alton Towers Theme Park. There were sufficient bathrooms and generally very comfortable furnishings . Enjoyed the fire.

We loved our stay in your beautiful holiday home and had a fabulous time. If we could, we would definitely come again and would recommend. The children loved the cows!

A really good weekend. The cottage has more than enough room for 3 adults and 5 teenagers. The location is very close to Alton Towers but in a beautiful rural setting and was very quiet. It was an ideal base for exploring the Peak district. Particularly liked the fact that keys were in a key safe so there was no pressure to arrive or leave at a particular time. We would definitely come back.

The property was extremely convenient for Alton Towers for those of our party wishing to visit. The cottage was good to come back to with a lovely deep bath to soak in. We had a great time spending this weekend with family and friends.

The lounge area was spacious as was the eating area. Been going to Alton area now for 9 years and so far this is the best self catering cottage we have stayed in.

It was a family trip with one infant, and we all had a fantastic time. The location of the property for Alton Towers was just ideal. Communication with the owner was excellent, and she could not have been more accommodating to us. As a group we all could not praise the facilities any higher. First class!

The closeness to Alton Towers was wonderful while the peacefulness of the countryside was perfect.

Cottage was nice and warm, well furnished and location was excellent. Owners also very helpful and communicative.

Very quiet as we came before Alton towers was open. Well situated for us as we had two very young children in the party - access to Dovedale, Ashbourne etc. We chose it as it meant we could accommodate children in separate bedrooms, and had granny accommodation downstairs for me!

It was a good price and great location for Peak District and Alton Towers. The kids enjoyed seeing the cows in the adjacent field.

The owner was very hospitable and accommodated our every need. I liked the trust policy applied to the logs for the fire. I thought this was wonderful. I booked the cottage for a friend's birthday and it worked as a perfect venue for our outing to Alton Towers at the weekend, followed by some serious relaxing the week thereafter. With the two adjoining cottages in the courtyard, we have already talked about hiring out all three spaces at some stage in the coming months so we can invite more people to share the wonderful experience we all had. I would highly recommend Bunbury and surrounding cottages as the perfect place to relax and get away from it all.

The cottage was absolutely gorgeous! The bathrooms were boutique hotel quality! The location for Alton Towers was better than the actual Alton Towers hotels! (Closer to the front entrance.) On returning home we decided to book again straight away! The owners were very helpful. Very highly recommended.

The lovely, peaceful location with great child-friendly walks. The cottage was perfect and we especially loved the big comfy sofa.

This was our second visit to 'Bunbury' so we knew what to expect. The cottage is gorgeous, with plenty of room. The beds are extremely comfortable and bathrooms amazing! The proximity to Alton Towers is just fantastic, you are much closer than the actual car parks. I would highly recommend it.

Clean accommodation, tea, coffee and milk for when we arrived.

We went to visit Alton Towers for Halloween weekend. The location of the property was second to none - it was closer to the entrance of the park than the Alton Towers hotel!
September 2011
Great location for alton Towers. Just across the road and round the corner - but quiet. Checked in by very friendly local. Set in courtyard with 2 other cottages - but own private yard/BBQ/seating.

Lovely stay in a great location just outside of Alton Towers gates. We used for a group stay of friends and wasn't using Alton Towers as out of season. Was good value for a girly night and fab accommodation :-)

I thought the lounge/dining area was ideally suited to our purposes, with comfortable seating and the woodburner was there if required. The beds were comfy and the showers were lovely and hot! The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and plates etc. and there was plenty of space for all we brought with us. The owner was also very helpful with regard to offering to provide a cot and high chair. Overall we really enjoyed our break, we thought it was a lovely cottage in a nice area that was entirely suited to what we wanted. The Christmas tree was a lovely touch! Thanks to all.
