I was really only looking for a convenient hotel close to the many nearby restaurants and thought the online pics and reviews seemed fascinating. The reality, however, was even better. Just a few hundred metres away from the main road through Alderley Edge is this wonderful fairy cottage with a thatched roof. Entering the garden area through lush ferns, ivy and other thriving vegetation, I half expected to find Sleeping Beauty behind the wooden, latched door, ready to awaken from her 100 year sleep. We had the Wizardry Suite, spacious and cosy downstairs, then up the thickly carpeted steps to the bedrooms. The main bedroom had a huge four-poster, lavishly draped in beautiful tapestries. The bedding was equally beautiful and sumptuous. Happily the bathroom was totally 21st century with modern and efficient fittings. The owner, Ian, has created a totally unique hotel (a word which seems so inadequate) and this has obviously been a labour of love. He was so helpful in imparting his wealth of local knowledge; a sincere and very likeable chap. Thank you, Ian, and we look forward to seeing you again.
