This is the fourth time we have stayed here. It is nice and quiet, comfortable bed, lovely breakfast and very friendly staff. This time we have the end cottage complete with our own guard dog at the door. Poor dog - seems to be tied up all day long with nothing to occupy it, however never heard it bark.

Stayed the night of the 27th/28th June a) due to its proximity to the Churnet Valley Railway, which I have reviewed elsewhere and b) because it seemed to fit my purpose, which it did. The accommodation is separate to the farm and seems to consist of three sets of rooms with their own entrance door and a patio at the... More

This is the second time that I have stayed at Hermitage Working Farm with my girlfriend on one of our trips to Alton Towers. The location is ideal for Alton Towers, about 10 minutes drive from the park itself. The Farm itself is set in the middle of the country side, and is very quiet. There is a pub nearby... More

Lovely accommodation, comfortable bed, nice and clean and excellent breakfast. However I did have a problem with the beautiful dog, Sam, being tied to a chain. He was a gorgeous boy, well behaved, never barked loved fuss and looked sad. Not much point having a dog if it is going to be tied up all day. Can't give 'excellent' becuase... More

First thing I have to say is - FANTASTIC BREAKFAST it really was great! Convenient to get to Alton Towers theme park (which is why we stayed). We were upgraded to a lovely cottage, small but perfectly formed. Friendly owners, great stay! Would recommend.

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 young boys in August as the B&B is perfectly located for a visit to Alton Towers. We had a family room which was very clean and fully equipped with tea and coffee making facilities and towels. We opted for the continental breakfast on the first morning which was plenty but on the... More

we stayed here after a day out locally and arrived to receive great care. We had 2 rooms one for the kids which was close to ours. Breakfast was great with plenty to eat, lots of nice touches like warm milk for looking after our youngest 10 month old. Very reasonably priced too. Would recommend.

A superbly clean place to stay considering it's a working farm. Great and plentiful food. Well worth booking the breakfast - all freshly home cooked from local produce. Very friendly & helpful staff. We stayed for a week, it wasn't long enough. We will certainly go back there. Very highly recommended, we cant praise the place enough.

We have just returned from a fabulous week staying in The Coach House. We were greeted upon arrival by Sam (In my daughters words: A lovely big softy of a dog). The cottage was just what we hoped for, full of rustic charm and character which went very well with the farms surroundings. 2 large bedrooms upstairs each with their... More

Far superior to any hotel for a visit to Alton Towers or this beautiful part of the UK. Very easy booking process (took a credit card deposit over the phone or could have chosen to post a cheque) with excellent communication by owners. Our dietary needs were catered for with good humour and consideration. Breakfast cooked to order and a... More
