“Amazing.”

The property and the surroundings was amazing!!, Dorothy was lovely and there to greet when we arrived also giving advise on the best places to eat and supermarkets ect. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and everything we needed including TV, DVD player, hair dryer, kettle ect. The views from the property where indescribable with sun loungers for us to relax and enjoy. Couldn't believe the property for how much we paid. Will be back very soon!! and only a five/ten minute drive to Alton towers really couldn't have asked for a better weekend.

“beautiful and immaculate bungalow”
Reviewed September 12, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My hubby, 3 years old and i stayed for 3 nights. We loved it, felt so relaxed in the peaceful surroundings. The bungalow excellent. Close to Alton towers, and not far from fun monkey forest.
couldn't have wished for a better break away.

“Gorgeous place with the perfect backdrop- no better place to stay!”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

This was by far the best place we could find to stay , and at by far the best price. The room is very pretty with views from all angles, the kitchen and bathroom have everything you need and are clean and modern. It is all completely self contained and there's some gorgeous garden area with amazing veiws that guests can use, and it all feels completely private. It's incredibly peaceful there. The host was lovely and helpful and her gardens are stunning! The box of chocolates and fresh milk for tea was a nice touch too and much appreciated. Unfortunately we had to leave in the morning earlier than originally planned , but we were looking forward to eating breakfast outside with the stunning views in front of us which would've been an absolute highlight! If I stay in this area again, this is the only place I'd be looking to stay at. It's perfect!

My son and I had a lovely break in this delightful setting, Dorothy and John are wonderful hosts. The bungalow was lovely, and very clean, with beautiful surrounding views.
Very close to Alton Towers, and the local pub!
I would highly recommend, and we hope to return next year! :)

“Stunning Cottage and Friendly Owner”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My son and I booked this cottage for the night after a trip to Alton Towers. My only regret is we couldn't stay for longer. The cottage and the grounds are beautiful and immaculate. Dorothy left us fresh milk in the fridge and there were chocolates and fruit on our arrival. I have stayed in many places but this was definatley one of the best. I look forward to returning but for longer next time. I have already recommended this cottage to friends and family.
