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.

We stayed here as a family at the end of august. The gentleman in reception was welcoming and very friendly. The campsite is very secure as there is a barrier and you need the code to come in and go out. The areas for your tents are very big and you have enough space to have

Beautiful property with lots of safe space for the children to run around and play. Very clean. Added touch of the chickens roaming around and Alpacas in the field. This property has everything you need for a family holiday. You can even get take-away delivered (some charge a

Lovely little camp site that we have been coming to for a few years now. It has been extended to about 30 pitches, some hard standing some not. You can pick which you want on line. It had great award winning toilet facilities which are struggling with the amount of people on

Thank you for your enquiry. Sadly at the moment there is no WIFI in the cottages. We are hoping to get superfast broadband here in the near future, but at present it is still too slow. 3G and 4G on people's phones is accessible.
