6 of us stayed at the Wizard's Thatch this weekend for my friend's hen weekend. Being a little past romping round Manchester and the club scene, we decided ladies that lunch was far more our style! The cottage is exquisite and just a tiny walk from all the beautiful bars and restaurants in Alderley which meant no taxis and we... More

My husband and I stayed in the Camelot suite for two nights. At a loss for words really... A travel back in time, without time travel, is now possible. The attention to detail is so unique and quaint that it does not look staged at all. The rooms are adorned with treasures from the past, but bizarrely the mod cons... More

We have just spent two fascinating nights in the Wizards Thatch; first night in the Wizardry and the second night in the Merlin suite. I desperately wanted to provide an accurate and reflective description but I really don't think I can do it justice! Take a look at the photographs and then let your imagination go even further. This place... More

Felt you were transported back in time as soon as you entered the suites. Had the pleasure to stay for 5 nights. One in the Camelot and 4 in the wizardry. Enjoyed the extra lounge space in the wizardry as Ian kindly allowed my 3 little dogs to join us. Little touches such as fresh flowers, fresh milk biscuits and... More

Quirky, unexpected and extremely comfortable stay in the Wizardry. Stayed for one night in The Wizard's Thatch and would definitely stay again. The Wizard's Thatch is in a good location, within walking distance of the high street and a selection of restaurants.

Everywhere you look is a tribute to their determination to create an experience you will never forget. A minutes walk into the village with shops,bars and restuarants, where we had... More

My husband and I spent our first wedding anniversary here and the whole experience was fabulous. Ian and his family have done an amazing job restoring this magical old building and you actually imagine a wizard at work in its wonky old rooms. The Merlin suite is perfect for a romantic weekend and the little extras that are provided give... More

Just spent a couple of nights in The Wizardry and it was fabulous. We were made to feel very welcome by Ian Lambert and if you like quirky with 5 star luxury then this is the place for you. With the windows covered in vines it gives the suite a warm, cosy and romantic feel which stays with you throughout... More

We spent our wedding anniversary night here. It really is a magical place. The proprietor was extremely helpful and very knowledgeable about the area as his family have lived there for many decades. The Wizardry truly is full of artifacts that could keep you amused and interested for far longer than we had to spare. There are some lovely walks... More
