We love decorating the place at Halloween, so it's nice to hear you enjoyed our scary creatures, talking butler and emerging skeletons :-) We're very lucky to have such good quality pubs and restaurants near us, who give our guests some great food and drink in the evenings. Phil and Helen

Staff couldn't be anymore helpful or accommodating. Breakfast was a delicious full english, with the hubby having a sausage and bacon sandwich, looked on by the various birdlife outside the window! Rooms were relaxing and comfortable and the B&B views were absolutely stunning.

Pulled up onto the drive, first thoughts were that it looked lovely. Greeted at the door by a welcoming owner. Given a little tour, even got our own front door key incase we wanted to go the the pub down the road. Lovely house & room very homely. Would stay there again definitely

Amazing property, amazing service and great value for money... would recommend this little slice of heaven for anybody travelling to Alton Towers for a long weekend. Nothing was too much trouble and made to feel welcome the minute you walk through the door.

Lisa. We really appreciate your kind comments. Whilst it's probably too much to expect you to travel all the way from New Zealand to see us again, you know where we are should you be in the UK in the future :-)

Lovely people. Although part of our group was slightly late they were very patient and welcoming upon arrival. Halloween decorations made it feel extra special for the kids. Nice breakfast and comfy rooms. Only 5 min drive to Alton Towers. Would book again given the chance when we next come.
