Characterful cottage
Great cottage with lots of character. Would definitely stay again. Query and nicely decorated. Note the third bedroom is a loft bedroom with stairs off the second bedroom and no door - but great for kids.

Perfect family home with everything you need
The location to Alton Towers makes this property the most ideal place to stay for the 5 minutes journey for the fun filled family break. Ash house is also great for eating out leaving the car as three pubs that I visited The White Hart & The Bulls Inn are both within 2mins walk and The Blacksmiths Arms a 10mins walk all serving lovely food. This was our 2nd visit staying at Ash House and we'll visit again.

Ash House
Just returned from a lovely weekend at Ash House. It's a beautiful cosy cottage which contains everything you need for a short stay away. We were worried that being on the main road to Alton Towers - 5 minutes away, it would be very noisy but the owners have provided for this with glazing which shuts out all the noise. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.

All the comforts of home
This is the second time we've stayed at Ash House. We love the location, right in the heart of Alton, close to the Bull's Head and the local store. It has all the comforts of home, including comfy beds, a real fire, fully equipped kitchen, games, books and DVDs for cosy nights in. Top spot for visiting Alton Towers, when it's open. Note the third bedroom is accessed via stairs within the second bedroom ? great for families, but might compromise the privacy of groups of friends.

Great home from home
Stayed with 5 friends for a weekend, the house looks small from the outside but loads of space inside. Good sized kitchen for hosting, cosy living area and decent sized bedrooms. The beds were really comfortable, including the camp bed in the attic. Fully equipped kitchen had all you would want and a lovely welcome hamper which went down a treat. The only downside was there were only 5 outside seats for the six of us and there were a lot of persistent pesky wasps in the sitting area outside. Overall we had a great time and would highly recommend this property and the village for a visit.
