An exceptional property, had an amazing weekend.
Mrs Fletcher

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.

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.

Exceptional cottage, all the mod cons and great owners . Would highly recommend this accommodation!
Ms Willingham

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.
