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!
