We planned an Alton Towers trip and didn't fancy a chain hotel/B&B. We found Windy Nook and thought we'd give it a try. Location is perfect, ten minutes to the park. Gill was great very accommodating , excellent communication from start to finish. We will be back

We just got back from a Bank Holiday weekend staying in Bouquet Cottage. What a treat!!! For the same price as a travel lodge you get this small self catering cottage set in beautiful gardens and surrounding countryside. Perfect for Alton Towers & splash landings is a 10 min drive away. The kids loved sleeping in the Arbour and climbing... More

We stayed in the Peacock Cottage which was fantastic for the 5 of us (2 adults and 3 children). The boys loved the Wren loft room. The cottage has everything you need, great for self catering and Dave & Gill are very friendly. The gardens surrounding the 3 cottages are lovely, it was a sunny evening when we arrived after...

Stayed here last month with the Family for the opening weekend of Alton, and what a great wee place. When we arrived on the Friday around 5pm was made very welcome indeed & the kids was offered to borrow DVDs for the evening after a long day traveling from Scotland. Inside the lodge there was plenty of information for things... More

Our group of 13 spent a couple of nights at Windy Arbour and had a fantastic stay. We rented all three of the cottages so could come and go without disturbing any other guests. The two nights worked out at about £35 a head which is excellent value when you consider the surroundings compared to say a Holiday Inn or... More
