Heythrop is an ideal cottage for everyone, whether you spend your time on the rides at Alton Park or discovering the nearby Peak District National Park.


I agree with everything the previous reviewer has said. It is very sad that the property does not seem to have improved between 2014 and 2018. Indeed if I had seen that review I would not have booked it. It must have been lovely when the publicity photos were taken, but it did not live up to its image. It is such a shame because if the owners had kept up with the maintenance it could have been fabulous. On the plus side I must say that in spite of all the niggles (it helped to have three engineers in the family to make things work) we had a very happy time there as an enlarged family group. Being snowed in added to the magic (I think)! This review is written some months later; I do not know if the comments still apply. I would hope not.

I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and guests from this weekend, we had a wonderful time and the house was perfect. The house had everything we needed and was decorated to a high standard, which made the stay even more comfortable for us. It's a beautiful spot, especially the villages surrounding it - it's what I miss from the English countryside!
Mr Gallantree

The accommodation was very comfortable and roomy for our family of 10. There was ample room for our barbecue in the outside area and there was a large, safe grassed area for the children to run around. The parking facilities were excellent.
Mrs Hodgson

Fantastic location, especially for Alton Towers which is a 5 minute walk. Very helpful host. The four bathrooms are an added bonus for the property. Would definitely visit again.
Miss O'byrne

Ideal location for Alton towers and such a lovely little village! A spacious house for ten people with quality fittings and furnishings.
