“Lovely b+b”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

Came here after a day at Alton Towers with some friends and GF, arrived fairly late to a very friendly chap (Keith?), he was helpful and chatty and showed us to our rooms which we were more than happy with - lovely comfy beds and good decor with a decent TV with freeview.
The breakfast was delightful too, well cooked with good food.
Would stay here again without any hesitation.
It is a bit out of the way so keep a designated driver off the beers if you go out for food etc, but as a plus point it was beautifully quiet overnight.

The only issue we had (and the same occurred in our friends room adjacent) was that the milk was off in our room (for the tea/coffee making)....really off too, not just turning !

We stayed in this B&B while visiting Alton Towers. We had been travelling for about 10 hours by the time we arrived, we were getting quite tired and it was already dark - hence we got lost. I rang the B&B and they gave us excellent directions - we were there in about 2 mins. We were unfortunate to get a puncture less than a mile from the accommodation and when we arrived the owner helped my boyfriend to change it, even though it was cold and dark outside. Once we got inside, I can honestly say - our room was top notch! The bed was very comfortable, the decor was fantastic, spacious room, fine size tv, fresh milk for the cuppa tea - none of the UHT rubbish you get nowadays in other hotels/ b&bs. There was no noise from passing traffic, room temperature was perfect. We had the most relaxing nights sleep after a very long day. Breakfast the following morning was just lovely and there was a good selection of cereals, yoghurts and fresh fruit as well as the traditional English breakfast. If I was going back to the area or Alton Towers again, I would check in here again rather than staying in the Alton Towers hotels - its only about 2-3 mins drive from the theme park. We came away so refreshed. Thanks a million to both the owners - they are doing a fantastic job!

After reading some reviews i was a bit scared incase we got lost,but our sat nav found it and took us right to the door. We used the Mousehole after a hard day at Alton Towers, and really did have a great nights sleep. Woke very refreshed and in need of a good breakfast. We got one. Got to say the owners were very friendly and welcoming. Taking time to tell let us know the best places for an evening meal.
I love a good deal and for the price we got a great one. We hope to see you again.

Driving down Cotton Lane you wonder when it will ever end, but situated about a mile down the lane you will find the wonderful Mousehole Home, I say home because that's how it makes you feel. In the most idillic part of the Staffordshire moorland and only 5 minutes drive from Alton Towers, its the perfect location for all, young or old. The hosts and owners Keith and Sandra make you very welcome and ensure your stay is perfect! The double en suite (blue room) was exceptionally clean and boasted original wooden beams dating back to the 17th century. Everything was so quaint and traditionally English, including the hearty breakfast. Excellent value for money. Will definately return. Thank you! Jamie and Family, Nottinghamshire

We stayed here for one night after a day trip to Alton Towers. The room was great value for money. Also very clean. The breakfast was fantastic- very fresh and plenty of it. A nice retreat after a busy day!
