“Ash house-fab house!!!!!”

We had a fabulous 3 night stay in the cozy cottage. All you could ever wish for on a trip for Alton Towers, 5 minute drive to resort. Lovely comfy beds, wood burning fire if it’s cold and a great sized family kitchen. The village of Alton itself was a great base for our trip. We had a lovely meal in The White Hart which was a short walk round the corner. We couldn’t rate this Ash House highly enough!

This cottage is genuinely a home from home. Upon arrival we were greeted with a warm welcome pack that included a personal note and a bottle of wine. The cottage it's self is amazing and has everything you would ever need. If fact it's my dream home! It's immaculately clean and has everything you would ever need, including a PlayStation in the attic room (we lost our 17 yr old to this most nights). The small village has a warm welcoming feel with the shop selling any essentials you may need.
Alton towers is literally 2 mins up the road and we took great joy watching the steams off traffic leaving the park every night knowing they may have a long journey ahead of them! Ha ha.
I cannot rate this cottage more highly, with its warm welcome, cleanliness, small village feel, local aminities and close proximity to Alton towers.
We really can't fault it!

“Comfortable, clean and spacious, well appointed house”
Reviewed June 10, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

person found this review helpful

A very comfortable and very well appointed house. Lovely furnishings and lots of interesting knick knacks. Very clean. Very well heated. Comfortable beds. As two reasonably mobile adults we found it a good choice. 3 good pubs within a 10 minute walk. (Would particularly recommend the Royal Oak for excellent food.) Post Office and newsagents 1 minute walk and a fair size Londis supermarket open until 9:30 pm is only a 3 minute walk. However, the house has no garden and the small enclosed patio is only a few feet from one of the main roads to Alton Towers which is only a couple of miles away. Fine if you are visiting Alton Towers, less so if not. The traffic is constant from mid-morning to late afternoon and often grinds to a halt right outside the house. The house has very effective double glazing so noise is not a problem inside the house. The traffic stops later in the afternoon and peace returns for the evening, so the traffic is only a problem if you remain in the house during the day. There is no parking at the house or on the main road outside. Cars need to be left in the road opposite the house, about 30 yards away. However, crossing the road to get to the car or unload luggage is a tricky operation during the day because of the traffic and extremely limited visibilty of traffic coming round the corner. Crossing the road outside could be very tricky for anyone with limited mobility. That being said, for any reasonably mobile person this is a nice house and a good choice.

“Lovely place to stay”
Reviewed November 13, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

What a beautiful and cosy cottage! Really nicely decorated and very well equipped with everything we needed. Was very clean and comfortable and had some very useful info and maps of walks in local area. Lovely touch that we were greeted by a bottle of wine, biscuits and some bread when we arrived. Really enjoyed our stay and would recommend it for a group of friends or families.

“Picturesque cottage”
Reviewed October 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

The cottage was a great size for just the four of us, it had everything we needed and was only a short drive to Alton towers. The village was lovely and quiet and it was easy to find. Just to warn others the drive to load and unload is very steep and I scratched the bottom of my bumper when we first arrived, which I wasn't happy about. I would advise leaving it on the road opposite and loading up there, unless you are driving a 4x4. Other than that it was perfect. Defiantly returning to do more exploring.
