Birchwood House is a detached stone cottage in the wooded hamlet of Ramshorn, just 2.5 miles from the Alton Towers theme park. There are two ground floor doubles, two doubles on the first floor, a single, and adult bunk bedroom and two twins. There are also two wet rooms on the ground floor, and a bathroom and shower room on the first floor. Downstairs is a spacious open plan living area, with a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and a sitting area as well as an additional WC and utility room. Outside, the large lawned garden has a patio and hot tub, perfect for relaxing after a day exploring the area. There is ample off road parking. With Alton Towers and the delights of the Peak District National Park so close, Birchwood House makes a great base for family or friends.
