We have just come back from a very lovely stay at the Crow trees farm. We were staying for the usual – a trip to Alton towers! Crowtress is perfectly situated for alton towers, only a couple of minutes drive from the park. The farm itself is lovely, very peaceful and set in the most amazing countryside with views to die for, you could look at the view for hours. Chris and Dianne are very welcoming and helpful, we were recommended a lovely Chinese restaurant in a local village and nothing was too much trouble. The room was in the main house and was very lovely, in a country style with views over the valley. I think the rooms in the barn are a little bigger but our room was fine. The breakfast was spot on, we had a full English with toast, cereal and all the trimmings and everything was perfect and really set us up for a day at alton towers.
What really made this hotel special is the setting and the animals, I made firm friends with a very geriatric black cat and could have spent an age watching the goats and lambs and the view in general. I would recommend this hotel for people staying at alton towers, there are a lot of B+Bs nearby and some look and sound a bit hit and miss so its always nice to know you have a place that you can use as a good base when ‘up north’ all in all a very lovely stay in a idyllic setting.
