Good Wi-Fi which with kids is essential these days. Good quality breakfast and plenty of it too. Nice quiet location and very peaceful. Only 15 min drive to... More

I've never stayed at a B&B before, but picked this one from a comparison site as it was decently priced and not to far from Alton Towers Upon arriving in this small village of Foxt in the middle of nowhere, the B&B was quite easy to find. Pulling in the drive it opens to an amazing field view with sheep... More

We only stayed for one night but have no hesitation in recommending this guest house which is located in a secluded spot with lovely countryside views all around. The bedroom was good (with TV, tea/coffee etc.) and had the additional benefit of a large en-suite shower room. Breakfast (cereals, cooked food etc.) was excellent. The owner was extremely helpful in... More

My wife booked us into the b&b so we could commute into Alton towers over a weekend. It was easy to find using satnav, and there was plenty of parking. The setting is lovely and we saw other couples taking pics of the local area. There is a local pub called the fox and goose which was pleasant enough with... More
