The owners are very helpful and welcoming. They make a huge breakfast with anything you could imagine on your plate, plus more. Bed is comfortable and set in one of their 300+ year old buildings. The town is quaint with loads of history. They leave you a snack and tea bags for an afternoon tea and they have spots to...

A really great review, what kind people! As they say booking a table at a local pub is a good idea, we always recommend it. Bed and Breakfast is what we do so we're delighted so know that beds were comfortable and breakfast was enjoyed, that's what it's all about! We hope to see these guests again soon.

We need a place to stay just for one night after a long drive prior to going to Alton Towers the following day. It was a lovely stay in a gorgeous B&B with a friendly welcome. The room was super and the breakfast was delicious (and vast!). I would definitely come back when we next visit Alton Towers. Thank-you!

Perfect location for visiting Alton Towers being minutes away in the car. We had two rooms booked - family room in main house & double room in the stables. Both were a great space with everything you would need for a comfortable two night stay. Both rooms were very clean, very good beds with quality linen. After returning from our...
