“An Overlooked Hidden Gem”
Reviewed July 1, 2009

Our stay was a surprise present from our children for our 25th wedding anniversary and what a wonderful surprise it was!
A beautiful thatched cottage, superbly decorated and furnished with everything we needed for our stay. Our room (the merlin suite) was in the eaves of the building and had a lovely four poster bed, we also had champagne and chocolates in our room.
The cottage is in a fantastic location and is a short walk away from aldeley village and the edge. Ian was a fantastic host and made us feel very welcome, he told us all about the history of the cottage and alderley edge. We would definately recommend the Wizards Thatch to our friends who want a lovely romantic break.

We stayed at Wizards Thatch for one night after finding it on the internet but one night isnt enough to appreciate this wonderful luxury suite. We stayed in the Camelot Suite which was wonderfully old fashioned with a few unintrusive modern touches. Fresh flowers and the milk in the fridge ready for that much needed cuppa add to the extra touches that make this place like a little peace of heaven on earth. Although only a minute's walk from the main street once inside the world seems to vanish. Everything is spotlessly clean and cared for, you can tell that Ian has put lots of thought and care to the decorative style of the suite and it works. Ian was friendly and welcoming and made us feel very much at home, even attempting to try and put some sort of parasol up by the pond and candelabra for us to enjoy because of the rain but unfortunately it didnt work, but next time we'll definately do the romantic candle bit, even if it snows!! There are plenty of places to eat and enjoy a drink before locking yourselves away from the world. We fully recommend Wizards Thatch for a lovely romantic break and can't wait to return for our anniversary.

Have been all over England and Wales and never come accross a place that even comes close to being as beautiful as the " Wizards Thatch". It is the most enchanting, magical, amazing, wonderful fairy tale cottage . This was our second stay and both visits were extraordinarily special. Will be returning again and again. Diana and Kevin.

If you're looking for somewhere to get away from it all - look no further.....

Tucked away yet within walking distance for all the bars and restaurants un Alderley Edge - The Wizards Thatch is a truly magical experience and like stepping back in time.

Thank you Ian for a very enjoyable stay.

Wizards Thatch is something else. A gorgeous thatched roof little treasure which was picture perfect inside and out. Literally seconds away from the main road which houses all the bars and resturaunts it was the perfect little get-away to celebrate our first Valentines as a married couple. The bedroom is amazing with the biggest four poster we have ever slept in, the bed itself was pure romance. I loved that all the original features had been kept and the original beams were all in place. It was literally like stepping back into time and a great escape from the real world. I will be recomending this place to all my friends and family. Although some may think its abit costly for one night its worth it as the place is spic and span clean, the owners really nice and the cottage is a little cozy gem which you wont find anywhere else. Being so close to all the shops and bars was great (theres parking at the cottage so you can walk) and we sampled some terrific steaks at the Alderly edge bar and grill which was just over the road. A really fab charming and homely cottage which gets 5 stars from me!

What a find this place is! Its a very quirky cottage at the foot of the "edge" in Alderley Edge. Next to the old post office. Passed this place many many times but hadn't realised it was offered as a place to stay. Upon arriving at the rose covered thatched cottage, greeted by the owner, who went into some intresting history of the place. He showed us round the place you enter into a loung which has a leather sofa and chair, TV coffee/tea making facilites microwave, toaster. The place has two bedrooms, we stayed in the master which has a loo off the bedroom, TV and four poster bed(very comfortable) On the same level there is a bathroom. The cottage has beams everyplace and is very cosy. What a great find this place is, will definately go again. All the effort the owners have put into this place has defenately paid off.

  • Liked — location, quaintness, clean, they went that extra mile to make sure everything was GREAT!
  • Disliked — no complaints
