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. Helen R 2019-03-10
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. Jane S 2019-01-28
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. Kkelly002 2018-08-05
Great for family visits to Alton Towers! Starting with the positives! Alton is a lovely little village and this property is just 5 minutes drive from Alton Towers. Some lovely little pubs and walks in the area so a great base for a family break.
The house itself is spacious and very well equipped. Kitchen especially has literally everything you could possibly need!
The beds are also extremely comfortable...guaranteed a good sleep after long days of walking!!
The negatives...and these are only niggles which wouldn't put us off staying again...
The parking situation others have mentioned isn't a major deal. However, the road to cross is extremely busy and you are right on a bend. The gate is literally right at the roadside and is not bolted (latched) so if you have very young kids, something to consider.
Traffic fairly constant and so if you are looking for peace and quiet, unfortunately you won't get it.
The attic den is great for kids but unfortunately, we had issues getting the PS3 to work. This meant no gaming or DVDs. Downstairs has a blu ray player which is useless for the great selection of DVDs supplied!
Overall though, lovely homely property and would definitely book again Shopaholic32 2018-07-21
Lovely cosy home from home Great base for Alton Towers and the surrounding Peak Disctrict. The house was really lovely and cosy with a wood burner in the living room and plenty of space for a family of four. My 7 year old daughter loved the attic bedroom with den! We all enjoyed the welcome pack of bread, butter, jam and a bottle of wine on arrival. Only downside was the very busy road next to the house and crossing it to get to the car. However this property was one of the best holiday homes we have rented as it was very well equipped and felt like a real home from home. Andrew W 2018-04-14
