“Brilliant B&B, Can't wait to stay again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2010

Stayed here for one night before going to Alton Towers and couldn't have asked for more. Room was spacious and clean with plenty of tea and coffee. Loads of DVD's to choose from with lots of new titles. Lots to choose from at breakfast and Anette the owner was very accomadating. For the price i couldn't beleive how nice it was and would definetly recommend this place to friends and family looking for somewhere close to Alton towers. Can't wait to ge back!

Stayed here after a day at Alton Towers and couldn't have asked for more. The owner was very friendly and welcoming and the room was clean, spacious and had a gorgeous view over the countryside. The breakfast was delicious! Would definately stay again.

Me and my husband stayed here for one night while visiting alton towers.
I would highly recommend to anyone,was a lovely b and b in a perfect location,very quiet and splendid views!
The room we stayed in was excellent and i couldn't fault it,lovely comfy bed,plenty of space,a seperate leather sofa,even a small fridge provided with fresh milk for your tea,coffee etc.Flat screen tv,dvd player and freeview,even dvds provided should you require one.Lovely decorated bathroom,with excellent shower etc,everything was totally spotless!!
Annette the owner was a lovely lady,who told us all about the local area,places to eat, etc.
The house is just a short stroll into alton,and the people in the village were very friendly,we ate at the bridge in and had a nice quiet drink in the royal oak.
Breakfast again was excellent,huge choice of cereals,yogarts,juice,fruit,jams,honey etc,and toast and crumpets,and then a lovely full english,with tea or coffee.
We really couldn't fault our stay here,just wished we had stayed for more than one night!
Will be recommending to all our family and friends who are going to alton towers or this area,thank you annette for a wonderful stay and your very warm welcome,we will definately return soon!!!

I booked the Warren after looking on Tripadvisor and it certainly lived up to the hype. Annette and Keith were lovely hosts who were genuinely interested in chatting to us and making our stay perfect. It was clean, nicely decorated, private and set in beautiful surroundings however it was the little touches that made it special. The towels were big, white and fluffy. The shower was a power shower - all too often in hotels and B&B's the shower is disappointing but it was fabulous. There was fresh milk in the fridge for hot drinks. They also supplied wine glasses and a corkscrew in the room and told us we were welcome to get a bottle of wine from the village and enjoy it on the deck.
Breakfast was great; freshly cooked and plentiful.
Oh, and the cat was friendly too!

i stayed here with friends last year and due to go back in a week. The owner Annette really is lovely, the hotel is impeccably clean, the service is great and you are made to feel right at home from the moment you get there, to the moment you leave.

I looked around last year for accomodation whilst staying in alton and they do vary every so slightly in price. On looking round some are nice, but here is second to none and there is nothing around the area tat could compare to this! Its spacious, the gardens are gorgeous and it really is like a little hideaway, but with that home from home feel all thrown into one.

To anyone visiting the area either for alton towers like it has been for me two years on the trot, or for business, seriously, you need to come here, its the best that there is... and coming from someone pretty hard to please, you will be nothing but chuffed by booking here!

We have stayed here for 6 years now and can not fault the accommodation at all. The B&B is lovely and the service you get is amazing, you really are made to feel at home from the moment you get there, until the moment you leave. I am more than confident that I will be going here for many years to come, and that those years will be as good (it can't get better) as the years gone by. Perfect place to stay for anyone going to alton towers, or even those who want a nice little quiet few days away.

We stayed here for one night following a trip to Alton Towers and were not disappointed. The rooms are spacious and meticulously clean with all the little touches that go to making your stay an enjoyable one. There was fresh milk provided in the little fridge in our room and a great selection of tea, coffee, hot chocolate and biscuits too. We found an ironing board in the cupboard and one thing I particularly liked was a DVD player in our room with a large selection of all the current films for us to choose from in the main reception. After a good recommendation for dinner in a local pub which we were able to walk to a film just finished our evening to perfection. Now then, breakfast.. do not leave The Warren without eating one of their great big fry ups, it was delicious and the setting to eat this fantastic feast was lovely, the breakfast room looks out over the gardens and the beautiful surrounding countryside. Annette made us extremely welcome and our only disappointment was that we were not staying another night!
