“Amazing, Location and Views....Perfect!” We couldn't of asked for more. Dorothy was so helpful and welcoming. They got a Slide, ball and tent for our 2 year old to play with. It was so clean and everything we needed. So close to Alton Towers to which was perfect. We will definitely be back again! Thank you!
“Very good for accomodating large number in large property” Overall I found this property to be very good for a short stay in the locale of Alton Towers. The property was extensive with plenty of room for kids to play without getting on top of each other. The dining room and living rooms were large and comfortable with the kitchen well stocked. A few problems with kitchen appliances but these were sorted during the time of visit, which is a plus point. Plenty of games, jigsaws and books available which was a massive bonus to keep kids occupied. Lots of nice pieces of classic and quirky furniture all contributing to make it comfortable and a relaxing place for a break.
Excellent pub across the road with very good food. Another couple within a few minutes’ walk. Some nice walks in the village too. A lot of effort has gone into making the place welcoming which was appreciated.
We stayed here with two young children for two nights and it was lovely, the cottage is small but is so nice and cosy. The pictures dont do it justice it has so much character and the surroundings are beautiful!
The roads to the cottage are very narrow country roads but its still a good base as we were only a short drive to shops etc and alton towers was half an hour away. Caroline was lovely too! We would definitely come back, thank you! …
Beautiful cottage, fantastic location and amazing hosts. Dorothy and John were very welcoming. My wife Julie can’t wait to book again and I agree 100%. Rare to find a little gem like this. …
Old Castle Inn
A characterful and spacious house
Lovely, fun place to stay with plenty of space and an abundance of toys to keep the youngsters occupied. The village and surrounding area are lovely. There were just a few minor things that let the house down: fridge door doesn't close properly, we had trouble with the shower and the lighting was very dim in the living room! However overall the house was really good value for money and the owner was very friendly and helpful. …
