We were quite a big group but welcomed really warmly - and given space in the fridge to keep picnic food, the dining room to use when we ordered a takeaway and lots of local tips. Rooms and bathrooms are nice and the breakfast is yummy. Beautiful countryside, Alton Towers and villages with pubs are all on the doorstep.

We were warmly welcomed by Keith and Sandra. Upon check-in, we were immediately shown to our two reserved rooms. The rooms with en-suites were perfect for our needs. Beds were comfortable and the countryside is gorgeous surrounding this property. We ordered a delivered dinner and the kitchen table was set for us at no extra cost. The breakfast was one... More

Beautiful B&B in a stunning location. Made to feel very welcome, and served a delicious breakfast served the next morning, with a choice of cooked breakfast, cereals, yoghurts, fruit salad and much more! Perfect location for Alton Towers and restaurants in nearby Leek! Will definitely be returning!

This was our third stay at the Mousehole, and we're already planning our fourth. A lovely B&B, clean, quiet and cosy. The hosts are very welcoming and the breakfasts never disappoint. It's a perfect location for Alton Towers and there are many excellent pubs nearby for dinner.

We booked to stay here for a two day trip to Alton Towers, for which it was perfect. The suite of rooms we had was large and comfortable. We had a living room with pullout double sofabed, TV and tea and coffee making facilities. We had a separate bathroom with an excellent shower, central heating and then a separate bedroom... More

If you're visiting Alton Towers this is the perfect place to stay as it's only minutes away. We couldn't have asked for a nicer place to stay or for more welcoming hosts. The rooms are spotless and the beds very comfy - ideal after a day at the theme park. Good hearty breakfasts made with local produce. We'll certainly stay... More

Just back from a two night stay at The Mousehole. Would highly recommend. We booked two rooms and had our own entrance to come and go as we pleased. Very quiet and comfortable with a lovely home cooked breakfast. We were made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived, thank you to Sandra & Keith. Only a 5 minute... More

An excellent B&B and although we didn't want to visit Alton Towers it is only 5 mins down the road. 95% of the guest stay here for that purpose. The hosts are very friendly and very keen to make your stay a very enjoyable one. Would definitely return especially as it is so handy for Staffordshire Moor, Derbyshire Dales and... More

Not too difficult to find, after all, and well worth venturing down the meandering lane for, this is a quiet and comfortable retreat offering traditional B&B hospitality. The cock crows in the morning and before we left after our two nights ( each followed by a hearty breakfast ) we were introduced to our neighbour and members of his harem.... More
