Alton

Alton is noted for the theme park Alton Towers, built around the site of Alton Mansion (also named Alton Abbey or Alton Towers), which was owned by the Earls of Shrewsbury. The village is located on the eastern side of the Churnet valley. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book, and contains numerous buildings of architectural interest; the Round-House, Alton Castle (now a Catholic youth retreat centre), St Peter's Church, The Malt House, St John's Church and Alton Towers.

Stoke-on-Trent is considered to be the home of the pottery industry in England and is commonly known as The Potteries. The city's world-class ceramics collection is housed in the Potteries Museum & Art Gallery in Hanley. Etruria Industrial Museum on the Caldon Canal, and Gladstone Pottery Museum in a former potbank in Longton are dedicated to the city's industrial heritage. Most of the major pottery companies based in Stoke-on-Trent have factory shops and visitor centres. Trentham Gardens is located on the southern fringe of the city along with the monkey forest, the first of its kind in England. Visitors can roam through the monkey park where 140 Barbary Macaque monkeys wander free in the woodlands. There are no fences in place to stop the monkeys from interacting with the visitors, although it is against park rules to touch the animals and wardens are on standby to ensure the safety of the visitors

There is a wealth of attractions and places of interest in the area - something for everybody!

“Wonderful”

Reviewed 13 Aug 2013

The owners were welcoming and very helpful. The accommodation is about 10 min drive from Asda and 10 min drive from Alton Towers Resort. The accommodation is fully furnished and has everything you need for a self catering holiday AND MORE! I can't fault our stay at this accommodation one bit. We would visit again for sure.

“Perfect”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

Just returned home from a delightful weekend at the Sweethills. We had a truly amazing weekend in the Peak District. The accommodation was better than we were expecting. Perfect for a couple who are looking to have a relaxing weekend. Beautifully decorated, good size kitchen, clean, bright with the most amazing views of the countryside from bedroom and kitchen. Lots of personal garden space outside. Very friendly owners. Cannot recommend highly enough.

“Excellent accomodation, friendly and helpful owners”

Reviewed 27 Apr 2013

Compact accomodation but excellent facilities, everything and more than you would expect to get on a self catering holiday. Directions to find property first class. Owners very friendly, milk in fridge and fruit bowl on arrival and even bringing fresh towels half way through stay. Location had stunning views and plenty of walks nearby, and easy to access places like the potteries, Alton Towers, Derby etc. Thoroughly enjoyed stay!

“Perfect! Lovely owners, very hospitable. Beautiful place - couldn't ask for more”

Reviewed 1 Jan 2013

We stayed over new year with our two cats. Pleasant welcome on arrival, even given milk for breakfast! Owners on hand next to bungalow - provided us with maps and guides of places of interest and made some good recommendations. Brought us fresh towels midway through stay and even helped search for our mischievous cat who went off roaming! The bungalow is very clean and well furnished and the garden and surroundings are simply beautiful with plentiful wildlife. Good local pub - The Raddle Inn within walking distance that does excellent food and serves 'til late. Many local attractions were closed over the Xmas- New Year period so we didn't get to do much but did visit the Trentham Gardens which were well worth a visit. Enjoyed the peace and quiet though. We're hoping to come again in a few months time.
