Alton, Staffordshire, England
This beautifully furnished newly-built annex is a must for anyone wanting a quiet and peaceful getaway! It is located along a private drive on farmland surrounded by the rolling hills of the traditional English countryside. There is abundant walking through woodland and open countryside from the door.

Wildlife is plentiful with many buzzards, hares, badgers and woodpeckers in the area. There have even been sightings of long-eared owls, red kites and muntjac deer. The area boasts a number of country pubs serving real ales and home-cooked food.

The region is steeped in history from the ancient ruins of Croxden Abbey (5 mins walk from the accommodation) to the legend of the Chained Oak of Alton, which can still be seen today. For those seeking adventure Alton Towers theme park is only 10 minutes drive away and there are many areas to expl...

We stayed for 2 nights at The Sweethills and it was very pleasant. John and Dorothy were wonderful hosts. It is ideally located for Alton Towers, being just 10 minutes up the road.
