This has to be one of the best sites we have stayed on in over 10 years of camping and caravanning. The site is very well kept, the showers and toilets immaculately clean,tidy and warm. It is very quiet, the only noise we heard was from the cows in the neighbouring field! The site itself is located only 2 miles... More

Just back from a stay at Lower Micklin Farm for Alton Towers - Scarefest. Came across the cottages when hunting for some accommodation near Alton Towers and most definitely was not disappointed. For the size of the accommodation the price was incredibly reasonable and to be honest at that price we were not expecting what greeted us. The owners are... More

We could only find good reviews of this site so we booked without delay and agreed it was excellent. Facilities and location superb (only 2.3m to Alton Towers) with the added bonus of friendly owners and a magnificent view too. You don't need to shell out on fancy sites or hotels when you're there for the theme park - you... More

We stayed in cottage no.3 and used an additional sofa bed. Our 4 children stayed in the large upstairs bedroom. We had an amazing stay. The cottage was clean and had all the facilities we needed with a family of 6. We would definately stay again at lower micklin farm

We chose Lower Micklin for its convieniance as a base to stay for our visit to Alton Towers, we needed somewhere that would suit the whole family. When we arrived we were so pleased as it was lovely the children loved the play area and football goals. The cottage itself although small was big enough for us all (3 adults... More

We stayed in a 2 bed property. Was ideal for Alton towers and so nice not to have a 3 hour drive home after a long day. Some lovely pubs in the local area. Would recommend the Royal Oak although you are best to book. Accommodation was good and the location was stunning with views over rolling hills. There was... More

We camped for 2 nights for our visit to Alton Towers which was just 5 mins drive away. The owners were very friendly and informative on our arrival. As we were there midweek in early September the site was quiet so the facilities were not busy but I can imagine in the summer weeks the toilets and showers would be.... More
