Lovely B&B about 10/15mins from Alton Towers. Easy to find. We ended up in 'The Annex' part of The Lilacs after the main house was full. The owner was very friendly and helpful and immediately went round turning all the heaters on to heat the place through and let us know good places to eat etc... The Annex was much more than expected with kitchen, front room with patio doors, dining area, bathroom with small bath and shower & double bedroom. Kitchen was complete with washer dryer, full size hob and oven and fridge. Ashbourne only a couple of minutes away with a good variety of places to eat. We chose 'The Red Chilli' Indian restaurant which was contemporary in style and served great food (they also do takeaway).
Breakfast in The Lilacs was also fabulous. Full english included an Oakcake which was very nice. Cereals/fruit juice/yoghurt/fruit also available in plentiful supply as well as big pot of tea and fresh filter coffee and toast. Lovely view across the fields at the back of the house. I believe Free Wifi was also available.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
