Lovely modern cottage in a great location, but time for a refresh
We were looking for a last minute break before school starts again, and found this cottage available to rent. The pictures looked perfect. A nice modern cottage within walking distance of Alton Towers, and within driving distance of the Peak District. The owners were friendly and very helpful once we had booked and we found the cottage without too much trouble. It certainly looks impressive when you pull up the private drive. The cottage is one of three with private gardens and a shared courtyard. However, we were a little disappointed to note that internally the cottage was starting to look a little tired from wear and tear over the years. Comparing it to the pictures, it is evident that it has gone a good number of years between major decorations. The lounge furniture was looking especially tired with the faux leather peeling and gouged in places. A leather style chair was also falling apart. This theme continued into the kitchen with a very smelly fridge, worn and missing utensils and crockery. Generally, the paintwork needs refreshing as there are a good number of scuffs and marks on most walls; especially bad in one of the twin bedrooms. We were also dismayed to find that we had to thoroughly clean the downstairs areas before we were comfortable preparing and eating food. We did email the owners with a list of items we felt needed addressing to ensure that families continued to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay and got a friendly response. We certainly hope that they give these tired areas some love because this cottage could be outstanding again. Certainly, the bathrooms were finished to a high standard in terms of fixtures and fittings but they also suffered from the need of a deep clean and redecoration. On a positive note, it was large enough for two families to share and our boys enjoyed playing in the field outside. The private courtyard garden with a slightly rusting and decaying but serviceable BBQ was appreciated. We would book again if these items were taken care of without doubt.

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.

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 :-)

Lovely location, very spacious cottage! Would love to visit in summer!

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.
