Lower Micklin Farm

Lower Micklin Self Catering Accommodation is set in 10 acres of grassland allowing plenty of room for children to play in safety. Half of a mile outside Alton village and five minutes drive from Alton Towers, Lower Micklin Holiday Cottages are also situated at the edge of the Peak District and a few miles from Uttoxeter racecourse. All our lodges are self contained, spacious and well appointed. Each cottage has its own fully equipped kitchen area, large shower room, and lounge/dining area with colour TV and dvd player. Centrally heated and double glazed, they are warm and comfortable whatever the weather. All towels and linen are provided. Unlike most self catering facilities, we happily accept guests for short periods allowing you to visit Alton Towers, rest overnight and move on to the next part of your holiday, or alternatively, stay a few days more and visit some of the other local places of interest. Guests are welcome to make use of the spacious outside facilities including climbing frame, swings, ball game field with goalposts and walking paths. Barbeque facilities, including fuel, are available on request. This outdoor space makes our cottages a great alternative to hotels near Alton Towers or the Alton Towers Enchanted Village Lodges.
