“Another romantic weekend away!”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Thank you for another lovely stay at Wizards Thatch. Everyone should experience Wizards Thatch at least once on their life....we did, and then again, and we're definitely coming back for a third! We were made so very welcome and everything was immaculately clean. Dressing gowns very cosy and loved the thick fluffy bath mats!! Had lunch at On the Edge and can recommend it without hesitation. Thank you Ian very much. Magical. Amazing. Enchanting. Unique. Perfect!

Great Sutton

Room Tip: Start with the Wizardry!!!

My husband and I booked the Wizardry for our 36th wedding anniversary after seeing it on Four In A Bed and it was even better that we had hoped for. I felt like Alice In Wonderland as Ian (who was a fantastic host) showed us through a gap in the hedge to reveal one of the cutest little cottages I have ever seen. When we walked in we were stunned and couldn't believe our eyes. It was so cosy and homely. We have always lived in period cottages but even we were amazed. Ian showed us around then left us in peace, but was always on call in case we needed anything. We had planned to dine at one of the fantastic restaurants in Alderley Edge but in the end got a takeaway as we couldn't bear to leave the place. We tried to watch the TV but kept getting up to examine one of the hundreds of curios scattered around. The bed was huge and so comfortable. My husband said it was the best nights sleep he had had for years.

We were due to leave at midday the following morning and left at 2 mins to twelve. We nearly had to be prised out. Although Ian was obviously busy with a family matter he still had time to show us around all the other suites and rooms. Needless to say, we will be back! (Can't wait).

Room Tip: The Wizardry is fantastic and has its own front door and is very private.

My parents recently stayed in the Wizards Thatch to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, they were welcomed by the owner Ian Lambert, who could not do enough for them. This is a truly enchanting and magical place that wraps it's self around you.

We stayed 2 nights at WT and absolutely loved it-first of all it is a cosy, cutely furnished hut in a unique style, secondly it had all possible things to make you feel comfortable and welcome-fresh bouquet of flowers, ginger cake and milk for tea, hot water bottle, romantic DVDs and new magazines!
The area is very quite, so we had a good sleep and the hotel is located in the center of the village with a wide choice of pubs and restaurants of various cuisines-we had food in 3 different place during the period of our stay and both were atmospheric, tasty and reasonably priced.
We must come back one day for sure-one of the few memorable places with a great spirit!

I stayed here once again with my husband and a few days later with my friend, both stays were in the Wizardry. What can I say, it is magical. This is a very special place, once inside the suite, whichever one of the three you choose, close the door and modern life stresses disappear. I would suggest you explore the village then after eating settle down for a glass or two of wine and relax. Ian, the owner, is as ever extremely helpful and seems like an old friend now. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we are back in July and will be looking to return as soon after that as we can. I have reviewed this place as 5 out of 5 but that does not seem enough. Book it, you will never regret it.

Room Tip: The three suites are all fantastic and all different.

The Wizard's Thatch is the most magical place to stay!! It felt like we were spending the night in Harry Potter's house!! Could not fault a single thing and Ian's advice on where to eat etc was very helpful. It was the perfect ending to my 60th birthday celebrations and I would love to return in the future for an even longer stay.

We stayed in both the Camelot suite and the Wizardry Suite. Both full of character and the possibility of 'friends' see the photo. Ian was on hand to show us around and give advice on where to eat and what to see, nothing seemed too much trouble. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to read or look at, the girls found an old hand grenade, which had me giving a full lesson on how the thing works, due to their many questions. Clean, Warm and friendly, what more do you want from a place. We'll be back and I image our friends will visit too now.

Room Tip: The wizardry has the biggest front room with a master bedroom and a single bedroom but only one toil...
