Perfect cottage getaway in Alton
From the moment I booked I knew this place was a Gem. Communication was fabulous. On arrival there was a welcome gift of wine and essential items. This made us feel special. The cottage is well equipped with anything and everything you should need during your stay. It's clean and decorated to a high standard in fact it felt like my dream home. The attic bedroom is perfect for teens and children with lots of games on a PlayStation. We have a wide range of DVDs and books and jigsaws and games in case we have a rainy day. Location wise it's simple perfect- Alton towers is just up the road (great for my teens) but as we came for our doggies holiday let's focus on that. Dog bowls provide (Mischa was very interested) and a lockable yard. So many Beautiful walks all from your door. Misha was in doggy heaven. The shower is great and kitchen is fabulous - you name it, it's there. 100% we will be coming back. Thank you Ash cottage Zo?, Daniel, Kit, chronic and Mischa

Beautiful cottage in perfect location
Ash House is a cosy and well-equipped cottage in a perfect location for Alton Towers and some beautiful walks in the countryside. There are a couple of really good pubs in a short walking distance that both serve food, as well as a great little shop. The cottage was well stocked with items we needed for our toddler and was very safe for him to explore.

Beautiful Cottage
We are just home from a 3 night stay at Ash House and will definitely return. After visiting Alton towers for many years we were delighted to find this perfectly beautiful cottage and wouldn?t go anywhere else now. It had everything we needed and we received a lovely welcome pack with treats for our stay. The cottage is spotlessly clean and so comfortable with a well equipped kitchen if you want to cook while there. Alton village is just lovely with some great local pubs that have fab food. It's Less than 5 mins to Alton Towers which was also great. The cottage is really spacious, there were 6 of us and there was lots of room. It is also really cozy, when we got n at night it was getting chilly, a wee boost of heat and the whole place was as lovely and warm. There is a post office and small shop just a short walk selling anything you need. Cheadle is around 10 min drive with lots of shops and pubs/take aways. I would definitely Highly recommend Ash House, We are going to book now for our next stay Thank you for our lovely stay

Weekend break
We had a fabulous weekend at Ash House as a surprise for my husband's birthday. The cottage is in a lovely location. It is such a comfortable and cosy place, and plenty big enough for a family of 5. It was very well equipped with everything you would need. The kids loved the top bedroom and there were some lovely touches with the fluffy blankets. Alton itself is a lovely village with a decent shop and some lovely pubs. Lovely walks on the doorstep but also close to walks in Dovedale and the like. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to enjoy another visit in the future.

Truly a home away from home!
We had a superb time at Ash House! We were going to Alton towers and came across Ash House on booking.come... we were not disappointed! The house is clean, cosy and much larger than photos show. The location is fantastic for the park and not to mention the pub right around the corner . Everything you need is provided at the property The treats (wine, groceries, biscuits...) were well received, thank you! Such a lovely touch. Will be staying at Ash House again, everything was hassle free and enjoyable. Thanks again!
