Oldfields Farm
Reviewed July 11, 2010

Just had a wonderful stay at Oldfields farm.

We stayed in the 'Gorsey Hayes' part of the building which is a self contained converted stable that sleeps 6 in sumptuous style. Very stylishly decorated with every attention to detail. Was ideal for a 2 night stay but would be equally suited to a much longer stay as fully ready for self catering stay.

Setting is wonderful - backs on to rolling fields, and ideally situated for alton towers or wedgewood, or many of the other activities in the area.

Our hosts Jan & Glyn were great, very welcoming with nothing too much trouble.

The only improvement would be provision of wi-fi, though I believe this is available in certain parts of the accommodation. Other than that, I really can't find a negative, so if you are staying in the area and fancy a bit of luxury, book here and you wont be disappointed.

We had such a wonderful weekend staying at Oldfields Farm. We stayed in the bed and breakfast room, which was decorated to a high standard and had been prepared by our hosts with lots of extra little unexpected touches, especially for this price range (rose petals on the bed, a glass of sherry to enjoy on arrival and a little tray of nibbles). Our hosts were incredibly thoughtful, having researched my dietary requirements (I am coeliac) and cooked us a breakfast fit for a king (actually 3 kings given the size of it). When we wanted to have picnic on arrival rather than going out to dinner, our hosts put a table out for us complete with tablecloth, wine glasses, bread and butter and homemade jam to enjoy with our meal. When we wanted to go out for dinner they recommended a place to eat and booked us a table. When we were looking for places to visit in the area, they advised us well and provided us with maps and guidebooks to get us there. You wouldn't be able to get this sort of thoughtfulness and hospitality anywhere else - we would definately recommend it.
