The location is perfect for Alton Towers. There really is no where else that comes close. That said, we found the property to be a very quiet and peaceful haven in the countryside and never had any issues with noise or disturbance. It was also generally well placed for access to a lot of other attractions and we made the most of this.

The location was excellent and we would stay again - we hadn't realised that the area around the property was so beautiful. Was pleased to see that the owners had supplied some milk and biscuits and a few tea bags.

The cottage itself was perfect, really nice bedrooms, a lovely open plan kitchen and living room and all the amenities you could need. The views of the surrounding countryside were lovely and despite the closeness to Alton Towers there was no noise.

We thought the house was outstanding, and the distance to Alton Towers was understated - it really could not be closer.

The cottage is in an excellent location as we were visiting Alton Towers - this is just a 2 minute walk from the park. The house is a fantastic size, and I would definitely book this property again.

The cottage itself was beautiful and very well put together. The garden area was lovely and the barbecue was easy to use. The walk into Alton Towers was fantastically easy. It really was a 5 minute stroll to the front gate, so we did not even need to queue for the monorail.

The location of the property was ideal for exploring the nearby attractions, with Alton towers on the doorstep. The cottage had a lovely rural feel and was of a very high standard.

The cottage was one of the best of the many we have stayed in. Modern decor and good open plan layout. We walked to the spa at the Alton Towers Hotel, only 30 mins away.

The location was excellent. The owners had presented an excellent property and it was very clean and tidy. Perfect weekend, thank you.

Stayed here for a bank holiday weekend with group of friends, cottage was nice and we enjoyed our weekend stay. My only area for improvement are that there was no coal or firefighters for BBQ, no extra wood for fire which was main heat source for cottage, and not enough toilet roll or dishwasher tablets. I would of expected these at least as essentials for the price paid and for ten people you would expect there to be enough of these essentials. I expected to bring everything else but not all this aswel. We ended up spending extra and getting all these things from local shop. As I said nice cottage but suggest these improvements for others.

Lovely and clean, modern but comfortable. Liked the fact that there were fresh flowers, pint of milk, biscuits for arrival - nice to think that you have been expected! Also fabulous that the open fire had all been set up for us. We loved sitting round it and enjoying a glass of wine. We are very keen to book again for next year. Please ensure the property owner gets this very positive feedback!

We found our overall experience in this cottage to be excellent. The accommodation is very well laid out, spotlessly clean & tidy and a nice size throughout. It is perfectly situated for Countryside walks and Alton Towers is only a few minutes away. Our only very small gripe was that without the open fire in the living area going, the one storage heater in the room was not adequate to heat the room fully.

A lovely cottage, within walking distance of alton Towers for 4 20+ year-olds. We had a lovely relaxing weekend while they were all out! Very comfortable, well-appointed and equipped. A great place to tour from (for us) and lovely local pubs serving great food and real ales.
December 2013
Met by Sarah at the cottage she was lovely and very helpful. Cottage was lovely ideal for the 6 adults and 2 children who stayed. Lovely coal fire which in fact was so hot we had to let it go out. Anyone wanting to go to alton towers it was a 5 minute walk from the house so didn't need to queue for parking. Nice pubs near by but also had compact kitchen which was excellent for making meals as well . Whole family enjoyed stay and would definitely go back again . Gill Durham

An excellent property ideally situated for us to walk to the alton Towers Spa - about half an hour away. Very clean and modern. An excellent winter retreat. The outside space is shared or is a small fenced courtyard which might be a bit limiting in the summer months.
