  • Philip’s house is quiet and well located, and a much more spacious and economic alternative to the hotels in the area if there are more than two of you. We enjoyed our stay.

    Maria2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful little cottage extremely well situated in a pretty village with good amenities. Very comfy beds , warm rooms with storage heaters , great shower and lovely little touches for breakfast etc. Parking very conveniently placed at rear of house.

  • Great location for Alton towers . Very clean

    Sally2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely place, very clean and tidy with thoughtful touches. Phil was very thoughtful and considerate - I would highly recommend staying here. Close to Alton Towers as well!

  • Philip's pad is brilliant for Alton Towers vists and covers all the basis

    Freddie2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This house was perfect for our weekend in Alton Towers! Less than a 10 minute drive to the park and walking distance to the local shop, pub & takeaways. The house was spotlessly clean, and stocked up with tea, coffee, milk, juice, bread & cereal for breakfast (and a box of Maltesers, which didn’t last very long!) Overall, it was 5-star hospitality in a great location and I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area!

    Rachel2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic location for stays when visiting Alton towers. Prefect space for a family to relax and spend time together. Good size bedrooms and living spaces. Philip made the house welcoming by leaving extra touches such as breakfast food and chocolates!

    Anna2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for the family. Ideally located for Alton Towers. Phil provided all the small essentials (tea, coffee, sugar, milk, cereal and chocolate etc... enough for a few days). There is a big Tesco just in the next town if you need anything more substantial. Also some good takeaways locally. There was a small hiccup with getting the key code for the door but it was resolved within 30 minutes and didn’t delay us one bit as we were still travelling. Thanks again!

  • Had a wonderful weekend here. Place has everything you need, including a dishwasher. They even left a lovely little touch for my husband's birthday. Plenty of local suggestions from Joseph and is very close to Alton Towers. Hot tub was great, although you're only allocated a 45 minute space per day and it's only open from 5-10pm so more ideal for those who are out and about during the day, rather than just a place to relax all day. Would highly recommend and will hopefully be back at some point!

    Daytona2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed in Rebecca for a 2 day trip to Alton Towers. The apartment was beautifully clean and so comfortable. We had everything we could need and Joseph the host was very helpful and hospitable. The grounds are gorgeous, well manicured garden areas, and the hot tub/sauna area is really lovely and clean. Would highly recommend if visiting the area

  • Fantastic host, great location for Alton, could not fault at all.

    Tara2018-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing host, great location and very clean & comfortable accommodation. Joseph was very friendly and humble and made us feel very welcome upon our first meet and throughout the duration of our stay. Just a few minutes drive away from Alton Towers made this location perfect for us and the neighbourhood is very peaceful, calm and quiet. The accommodation itself is very well equipped and cosy, we also had some small treats left for us ( hot crossed buns & mini chocolate eggs ) which we felt was a nice added touch of generosity to our easter break. The Jacuzzi & Sauna was also very well maintained and we were able to book our own time slot which gave us some privacy whilst using these facilities. Would recommend Joseph & Alisons accommodation to all :) 10/10 thanks

    Jamie2018-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is the perfect place for a family, we were greeted and made to feel ever so welcome. The little things made the trip a delightful time for our family. Thank you xx

  • Our stay was absolutely delightful. Clean and comfortable suite with a range of breakfast foods provided. Beautiful, quiet area with local pub and shop in walking distance.

We loved the added extras like a mini fridge, kettle, tea and coffee, glasses, very handy. Bedroom has everything you need including towels, toiletries, hairdryer.

    Amy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a truely amazing stay. The house takes you back hundreds of years in history. All so incredibly and beautifully maintained by Chris and Margaret. The hospitality could not be topped. Really enjoyed the most splendid log fire and a fantastic breakfast in the very authentic breakfast room. Will definitely recommend to friends and come back very soon.

    Barbara2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • A fantastic period property, equipped with authentic furniture set in beautiful gardens. We were made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived and were treated to a delicious breakfast. We spent several hours in front of the roaring open fire. We hope to visit again and would recommend unreservedly.

    Jane2020-02-22T00:00:00Z

  • You will not be disappointed! The most delightful rooms with lots of character. Little extra touches everywhere. A breakfast to die for and warm friendly unflappable hosts. It is the second time my partner and I have stayed here and we will be back next year on our annual Alton Towers adventure!

    Tiggi2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • I had an absolutely superb stay with Chris and Margaret at Manor House Farm. The surrounding countryside is stunning, and the farm house itself was amazing - very old and beautifully cared for, so welcoming and warm! I loved having the use of the sitting room and log fire of an evening! My room was so cozy and comfortable and clean. The bed was really comfy, shower hot and towels fluffy. I had one of the best night's sleep there I can remember. The internet reception was great, although I didn't have much phone reception (which to be honest was a plus for a short break!) Chris and Margaret were very communicative and friendly, and so helpful in planning activities for the day. Breakfast was such a treat! All cooked to order, top quality and delicious. I only wish I could have stayed longer! :-)

    This house is located right next to JCB Headquarter, 10 minutes drive from Alton Towers, the Staffordshire Moorlands and a 20 minute drive to the wonderful Peak District. The room is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, families (with kids), or big groups. There are 3 spacious double rooms available in this modern semi-detach house. This listing is to book one of the rooms. (There are other listings available to allow you to book 2 rooms or 3 rooms).
    The neighbors are friendly.
  • Kai was a lovely host. Knew he would be available if we had any questions. House was clean and comfortable. Bed very comfy. Was just us staying at the time which meant we had our own bathroom. Kai had basic breakfast items in - bread and milk. Tea and coffee. Only thing I would say is towels are hand towels. So bring one if that would bother you. For me I’m easy going so it was fine. Perfect location for Alton Towers. We don’t drive but bus/taxi from Uttoxeter station to Rochester was fine (15 mins) and we got taxis to and from Alton towers. £17 each way which was grand. 100% would stay again.

    Rocester, England, United Kingdom

    A delightful cottage situated in a conservation area, tastefully decorated and nestling in a pretty valley opposite woodland. Explore the Peak District, the Potteries, Antique shops in Ashbourne, Alton Towers or walk to Dimmingsdale from the cottage. Come home to peace, quiet and a cosy wood burner or sit outside with a glass of wine in the little courtyard at the back and enjoy the birdsong.
    Arrive from 4pm. Depart by 10am 3 nights minimum stay
    There are many pubs in the village including The Bulls Head and The Bridge Hotel. Walk along the disused railway track from the cottage to Denstone Farm Shop for breakfast, lunch or tea and cake. Pick up a ready made meal there to take home and enjoy later in the warm cottage by the log burner. The lovingly restored Victorian Cheddleton Railway Station (near Leek) and the Churnet Valley Railway take you on a journey back to the classic days of railway travel. Treat yourself to an afternoon cream tea whilst taking in lovely scenery. Walkers can visit Dimmingsdale, walk along the old railway track in either direction from the restored Alton Station or travel on a bike along the Tissington Trail. Scenic Dovedale in The Peak District and lunch at The George in Alstonefield is a delight. Visit Haddon Hall (about 25 miles away) overlooking the River Wye with its romantic house and Elizabethan terraced gardens. Also, Wedgwood, Emma Bridgewater and Burleigh potteries are not too far away in Stoke on Trent. Ashbourne offer many historic building and antique shops. Also, Alton Towers Theme Park is just outside the village and offer much more than just the rides.
  • Wonderful cosy cottage in quiet secluded position but ideal as a base to explore The Peak District and Staffordshire. All comforts provided for and great tips on local places oven by and attentive host. Great getaway, even with the interesting weather, certainly had all seasons in 1 week. (Ciara and Dennis including snow😱🤷‍♀️) would love to return when weather improves to explore more. Thank you From Emma and Neil.

    Emma2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect haven! This is exactly the kind of place my friend and i were looking for, to get away from the chaos of the city. The cottage is beautiful. Exactly as is in the pictures but much better in real life. Spotlessly clean and will all the information about the local area you could possibly need. There was plenty of logs for the fire and very useful instructions for the first time users like myself! Saskia's communication was phenomenal, and I was given all relevant information and more, before and during the stay. The cottage itself had everything you could possibly need. Warm and cosy and totally functional. The location is perfect as simply 15min drive from Uttoexeter train station, and close to lovely pubs, local shop and beautiful scenic walks. My friend and i had the most wonderful time and we would like to thank Saskia for her beautiful home. I will be returning! lisa x

  • Saskia's cottage is a real gem, everything one hopes for for a quiet and cosy weekend.

    Adrian2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Saskia is extremely helpful & informative. She couldn’t do enough. The cottage was spotless, equipped with absolutely everything & beautifully decorated. We stayed for Xmas and on arrival there was a real xmas tree beautifully decorated & lit, log burner was all filled ready to be used. Kitchen had all the homely touches & all the toiletries where fabulous. Would highly recommend staying here, its a dreamy cottage in an idyllic setting.

    Ozgur2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • An incredible place with lots of great little touches: the fire's pre build, chocolate is left out and the styling's classic and never overbearing.

    Charles2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Saskia’s place perfectly charming, amazingly located and surrounded by everything you might need. Thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

    Sam2019-11-05T00:00:00Z

    Thank you for looking at our listing. If you're looking for somewhere central then have we got the room for you! We are a 10 minute drive from JCB HQ, 15 minutes from Alton Towers and a 20 minute walk to Uttoxeter Racecourse. We are a perfect base for exploring the local area with Stoke, Lichfield, Stafford, Cannock, Derby and Burton all within 25 minutes. If you were looking a but further afield then Birmingham, Leicester, Coventry and Dovedale are all about an hour away.
    Our house was built in 1893 and is very quirky yet contemporary complete with (some) hobbit sized doors and creaky floorboards. The room itself is a comfortable, light and airy space at the back of the house. There's a double bed and ample storage for extended stays. We don't have a TV in the room but there is a good strength fibre WiFi signal for all those boxset addicts out there.
    Uttoxeter is a smallish market town. It has a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants. We even have a 3-in-1 cinema, bowling alley and ice rink....oh and the racecourse obviously. It takes us about 10 minutes to walk in to town but if you weren't feeling that energetic there is a pub, shop and chinese takeaway just around the corner.
  • This is basically as it says on the tin. It is a simple double bedroom and there is a nearby bathroom. There is a fridge that you can use downstairs and there is also tea/coffee etc available in the kitchen. Good for an overnight stay when visiting Uttoxeter, but not a holiday home. However you are not paying for that - it is good value for what you get and the hosts are very friendly.

    Keith2019-11-17T00:00:00Z

The flat was lovely, spotlessly clean and we provided with cereal and milk, which was great. Joseph recommended a local restaurant (Michelin star no less), so we had a wonderful meal. We would thoroughly recommend this Airbnb property. It has everything you could possibly need and more.

    Juliet2019-05-07T00:00:00Z

    Jane's home is located in Uttoxeter, Staffordshire, England, United Kingdom. She lives there with her husband Mike. The Coach House has recently been renovated and dates back to the 18th Century and features original exposed beams. It is on the same plot as where we live but is detached and has it's own entrance.
    The Coach House has it's own semi-private garden, which is a peaceful and quiet space.
    There are a number of nice restaurants within walking distance, and take-aways should you not fancy cooking. There are plenty of pubs too, I can make recommendations upon your arrival. There are several places where you can get a splendid full English Breakfast, or if you are looking to grab a spot of lunch, or afternoon tea. We have a few local Supermarkets, with Waitrose at the end of the street and also Asda, Tesco and Lidl within walking distance.
  • Jane was so lovely and welcoming! The Coach House is such a beautiful place to stay with the most amazing little touches! Really comfy bed and such a spacious property in general, everywhere was sparkling clean and cosy for when we arrived! Would 100% recommend and I am hoping to return in the future!

    Amy2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a little gem this place is. You couldn’t of asked for a nicer clean well equipped flat. 5 star all the way.

    Richard2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • The coach house is simply everything you would want and expect from Air B&B. Jane has done a superb job of making this place a home from home. Her communication after booking was swift and she even came out to greet and introduce even though we was self check in. The property is one of the best stays that we have had as experienced air b&b travellers. The house is immaculate, very clean, the sofas and bed are extremely comfortable, tge kitcgen has everything you need for cooking utensils, pots oans etc .. and has everything that a whole property should have. Jane left lots of thoughtful touches and even left us a welcome hamper of goodies for our stay. She is a very plesant host and nothing was too much trouble. If you have looked at this property then book it up, you wont be disapointed. Look forward to our next stay with you. Thank you Jane

    Allan2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Jane was a fantastic host, she was very welcoming and showed us round the house. The house was spotless, and had all the extra touches which made it feel like a home away from home.

    Hanah2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This is the second time that we have stayed here and it really is superb. We stay as we are having a day out at the races and this place is just so convenient. Jane is a fabulous host and the number of fine, personal touches make the difference. The place is lovely, stylish, clean and very, very cosy. I have no doubt that we will return again, hopefully sooner rather than later. Thank you Jane for the loveliest weekend break.

    Lesley2020-02-09T00:00:00Z

    The Parlour is a luxury Shepherd's Hut looking out onto the Churnet Valley in Staffordshire. Set in eleven acres of organic farmland, there are walks and cycle paths on your doorstep. If adrenalin is what you seek then despite our peaceful location, we are a only a couple of miles from Alton Towers. The lovely market town of Ashbourne, the gateway to the Peak District, is twenty minutes away.
    Welcome to Greenacres! We're Tessa and David, and we live in our family's farmhouse set in the middle of 11 acres of organic pasture on the edge of the small country village of Denstone, Staffordshire. The land has been farmed for centuries, and Tessa's family has been here since the middle of the 19th century. We are 10 minutes from Alton Towers, close to Ashbourne and the Peak District, and a short walk from the centre of the village.
    Greenacres is set in the midst of 11 acres of organic grassland pasture, and there's a lovely view of the trees of the Churnet Valley and the Weaver Hills from the Victorian swing hanging from the nearby old Ash tree. A countryside location but only a couple of miles from Alton Towers. If you are a lover of the night, you will really enjoy our dark skies. There are no street lights around us, and on dark nights the skies are brilliant with stars. It's certainly a good place to bring a pair of binoculars and go stargazing in the garden. Greenacres is 5 minutes walk from the middle of Denstone village, and about 100 yards down a private track across the fields from the B5032 road from Denstone to Alton; parking is off-road in our large courtyard.
  • Our stay surpassed our expectations, loved how they ensured we had everything we needed, had a pan for everything, the little flowers were a lovely touch 🥰 everything from Salt&pepper and cooking oil to tea, sugar and ground coffee 😋 the folder of hints and tips was very helpful, thank you for a lovely stay

  • Thank you so much for having us! The hut is beautiful. It was clean and thoughtfully designed. All the information provided in the guestbook was extremely helpful. We loved all the small touches, the flowers, the radio and the games. Jack particularly enjoyed the fire! Would highly recommend.

  • David and Tessa’s place has by far been our favorite Airbnb experience—and we’ve stayed in A LOT of Airbnb’s, so that’s saying something. Not only is the Shepard’s hut incredibly cute, very clean, and well equipped, but David and Tessa themselves are wonderful and went above and beyond in so many ways. David even provided us with numerous tips for our trip to Scotland (our destination after Denstone). The scenery surrounding the hut is so peaceful and my husband and I had so much fun playing cards outside while their sweet dog kept us company. We would happily come back to Denstone just to stay in their lovely Shepard’s hut again and have the perfect little getaway.

    Darran2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • My friend and I stayed for 2 nights mid week. Tessa and Dave were the perfect hosts. They were friendly and accommodating and couldn’t do enough to make our stay as pleasant as possible. The shepherds hut was comfortable, immaculate and beautifully decorated. We really appreciated Tessa and Dave’s attention to detail such as the vase of fresh flowers on the table and having the shepherds hut stocked with milk, tea and coffee. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to go back.

  • Really amazing place to relax

    Lpy2018-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • What a simply stunning place! We were blown away with the Shepherds Hut, and the hospitality shown to us by Dave and Tess helped make for an absolutely perfect weekend. Cannot recommend this little gem highly enough.

  • Wonderful host, Joseph couldn’t have been more helpful or friendly. Elizabeth accommodation was very spacious, warm and with the added pleasure of the hot tub/sauna. Stayed for a weekend at Alton Towers, great location and easy to get to. The beds are super comfy, best night sleep I’ve had in years! Thank you again!

    Louisa2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Friendly couple running the place. Got there. Was very clean. Easy to find and facilities were all there as mentioned. Hot tub was good. The suite was nice, clean, spacious and modern

    Darryl2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a wonderful stay here. We were visiting Alton Towers and this was a great place to head back to. Being so close allowed us to ride till park close and know we'd be at our home from home in 15 minutes. Perfect. The hot tub was such a treat after a busy day of walking round the park and was took a quick trip to the Tavern where we had a drink and some yummy sweet potato chips. The shower was really lovely and there were plenty of towels provided. The kids really enjoyed the mini cereal boxes and the hot chocolate :) Rooms had good black out blinds which helped us all sleep well. We had a warm and helpful welcome and Joseph was on hand to help with anything we needed (though we were out most of the time). Would definitely recommend for an Alton Towers break, or to enjoy the local area (which we didn't have enough time to enjoy, but looked beautiful).

    Richard2019-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very clean accommodation, easy check-in and good location. The breakfast baskets were a nice touch and the hot tub was brill! A great price too.

    Justine2019-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Lots of little touches like the welcome pack (milk, cereal etc). Sparkling clean. Kids loved the hot tub and the disco lights were an added bonus. Very handy for Alton Towers and the local farm shop does a lovely breakfast!

    Anne2019-04-20T00:00:00Z
  • The location is great - either for Alton Towers (10 minutes drive up the road), the Peak District (30 mins the other way), Stoke, Uttoxeter, and more. Denstone is small, but has shops, restaurants, and more. And Dominos will deliver! The main room is big, but contains all the beds, the sofa, desk, TV etc - so expect 1 bed-time for everyone! Shower is great, kitchen good. Hot tub and Sauna very welcome indeed. Plenty of car parking. Joseph was there to show me round, and he left milk, cereals, etc, and a full folder of what to do in the area. For me and my 2 teenage sons it was perfect for a short trip to Alton Towers and the Peak District.

    Tom2019-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • Joseph’s place was excellent. We travelled from Surrey with out two children (9 & 7) and older nephew (15). We visited in the half term and we were taking the kids to Alton Towers. The space that we paid for was a great size, with plenty of room for everyone. There was also a separate kitchen which was really handy for breakfasts in the morning before leaving and then when we returned after a long day in the park. There was also access to a hot tub, which the kids found really enjoyable as it reminded them of their grandparents house. We didn’t explore the area but looking at the informative pack of information left by the hosts there seems to be be plenty to do locally and it was literally 10 minutes a way from parking at the theme park. Great place to stay with kids.

  • Ellyse's home is a great place to stay. It has everything you need and is in a great location for the surrounding attractions. An unexpected meeting meant Ellyse was unable to be there but, we were still accommodated with a great check in process. Contact was great and we knew Ellyse was easily reachable if we had any questions. Highly recommend!

  • It was a pleasure to stay at Ellyse's place. She made you feel at home & as a host came across as approachable, likeable & laid-back. Whilst I didn't spend much time around the house, everything was clean & the bed was comfy. A nice space - can't ask for any more.

  • A lovely house in a great little village. Alison was an excellent host, I was a little awkward in changing my arrival time more than once and this was accommodated for with no bother. My room was very clean and comfortable and I slept great. Tea, coffee and fresh milk were available in my room. Good value for money and I would happily stay again and recommend others.

  • We stayed at Alison's place for 2 nights during our visit to Alton Towers. As they say: Location Location Location. It is only located only 3 minutes from the park gates by car. Everything from checkin to checkout went so smooth. Prior to booking we had a few questions and Alison was always quick to answer. We very much recommend this place. The house is spotless clean and Alison is a great host. Not to mention very comfortable bed. All in all it is a 5 star rating:)

  • Kelly’s cottage is absolutely lovely, in a very quaint and picturesque area, well serviced by good local pubs. Kelly was a fantastic host, responding to requests promptly and being really considerate and accommodating (including of a change in check in time). We’d highly recommend staying at Kelly’s place, particularly if you’re visiting Alton Towers.

    This delightful cottage is perfect for a couple/individual who wants to get away from it all but not be entirely cut off from civilisation. The Coach House is off the ‘main road’ to Ashbourne, but sits on an extremely quiet road, from which you can walk to a pub, a corner shop or straight into Derbyshire countryside. Although 3 centuries old, recently restored, it has new central heating, new kitchen and luxury bathroom so the history is all there without compromising a comfortable stay.
    The Coach House has an entrance hall (where you can sit and kick off any muddy boots from walking), a kitchen/diner, a cosy sitting room, with gas fire. Upstairs there is a small landing that opens onto the bathroom, the bedroom and a storage room. The Victorian style bathroom is complete with claw-foot bath and shower and heritage heated towel rail. The bedroom has a lovely view over fields, clothes rail, chest of drawers as well as a comfy Warren Evans bed. (Please be aware, the stairs are narrower than conventional stairs, and wouldn't be suitable for my 95 year old Great Aunt).
  • Gareth's place is a wonderful retreat if you want to explore Derbyshire. Located just outside Ashbourne, it is a comfortable, stylish place. Would highly recommend.

    Lynsey2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved this place, exactly as advertised, only much bigger than the pictures make out. The hosts were brilliant at contact and giving us information, also totally respecting that we - as a pair of hard working introverts - wanted to have a holiday in total isolation :) The house itself was beautiful, the area was beautiful and quiet. I grew up in Ashbourne so already knew all the incredible places to visit. I would highly recommended this cottage; great value for money and a really relaxing place to stay. Thank you so much 😊

    Annie2019-08-10T00:00:00Z

  • Lovely cosy cottage - very comfortable for a few days winter break, especially if you want to get away from it all (there is no phone signal or internet coverage in the whole village - which can be a real positive - and there is good wi-fi in the cottage anyway) - nice to have ample cutlery/crockery/utensils etc (it's sad to note how many other places skimp on these things which is a false economy) and two two-seater comfortable sofas to relax in front of the wood burner....

There is lots to do like rock climbing the Churnet valley Boulders, Eating and drinking at the 5 pubs of Alton. Walking the staffordshire way or exploring the many forest tracks on your doorstep. You may want a fun packed day at Alton Towers park or spa. Cook on the BBQ, sit on your tree swing or relax in our new Hot Tub or toast marshmallows on your fire pit and listen to the owls hoot.
    The lodge is luxury glamping and has 1 bedroom and 1 shower room and 1 kitchen lounge area with log burner and DVD player, Books and Games. There is a ladder to the second sleeping area. The Lodge is best suited to 2 adults or 2 adults with their 2 children because the second bed is up the ladder in the eaves and is off the lounge. It is like a large bunk bed, so adults might find it a bit cramped sleeping in the eaves bed. Outside you have a large covered veranda with table and chairs, Charbroil 4 burner infrared gas BBQ with side burner, which can cook a Christmas Turkey, Lounge chairs and a garden area with a fire pit, tree swing and New for December 2018 a Wood fired Hot Tub.

  • Great countryside escape. Hosts were very welcoming and helpful. We had a great time.

    Joe2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Sally and Andy are wonderful hosts who were always available if needed, but never imposed. Their lodge is lovely with lots of homely touches. It’s the perfect place to relax in beautiful country settings. The surrounding woodland provides plenty of opportunity for walking, and Alton has a number of nice places for a drink or evening meal. The hot tub is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the beautiful surroundings. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing break in peaceful surroundings.

    Daniel2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant weekend here! It was just the escape we both needed. We walked into Alton and had lunch at the Ramblers Retreat (a gem) but spent the rest of the time by the fire relaxing or tucked up in bed as the heated blanket made it so cosy! We found the wood fired hot tub hard to get heated on the Friday, so on the Saturday Andy helped us out which was great and once we were in, it stayed hot for AGES! The cabin's location makes it perfect for a weekend away by the forest. Tip from us: pack minimally as storage space is minimal. If we returned, we'd try the summer so that we can make the most of the lovely outdoor space and BBQ, but we managed using just the induction hob which is a really good idea for places like this. We loved our winter weekend here. Thanks Sally and Andy (and your lovely dogs!) x

    Helen2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We visited with our two children and we all absolutely loved our stay. The place was just big enough for a short break, the kids loved the loft bedroom aspect and the hot tub worked perfectly well. Initially we thought that the hot tub would take a few attempts but it was very easy to get going and doesn't take long to heat up. The apartment was clean and had everything you need. The views are stunning and there is plenty to explore. We had lunch at the Ramblers Retreat followed by a good long walk. We would highly recommend this host and we will be coming back! Thank you Sally and Andy xx

    Aliyaa2020-02-21T00:00:00Z

    Millie2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, cosy, comfortable lodge situated in perfect countryside. Great for walks with the dog, or children. Andy and Sally were wonderful hosts who were happy to help. Thank you for a great stay.

    Rob2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely weekend stay at Sally and Andy’s lodge. We were a bit nervous about finding it but we were given great instructions so managed not to get lost on the way there. We especially liked the hot tub, it took a bit of time to get it lit in the wind / dark / rain but we followed the instructions and it warmed up really nicely - it was a bonus that we could use it in the rain. Would definitely recommend the ramblers retreat for some lunch - it’s not a long walk down the road and through the trees. We also had a lovely meal at the Bulls Head in Alton which isn’t a long drive away. The communication was great despite sally and Andy not being around for the weekend, they were still on hand to answer any questions which we really appreciated. The lodge is positioned really well so that you’re tucked away enough to feel like you’re getting some privacy but close enough to the main house should you need anything. The only thing I would say is that it was the perfect size for us (just two people) but if you were planning on staying as a four it might be a bit of a squeeze. Overall a lovely place that we would definitely recommend to couples looking for a cosy weekend away :)

    The Willow is within walking distance of the villages of Denstone and Alton. Denstone is a very pretty village and we have included some photographs in the listing. There is a pristine soft play area, tennis courts, a very popular, traditional country pub and an award winning farm shop, with a clothes shop, beauty parlour and hair salon. In the heart of the village we have a cycle trail which takes you to Alton and Oakamoor. Alton has four pubs and local shops. Also, within walking distance just outside of the village is a picturesque lake. Denstone is well known for its private college, with outstanding historical buildings which will take your breath away as you stroll through the grounds using the public footpath. The area has some outstanding walks for all abilities with stunning views and countryside. We are fortunate to have a local race course at Uttoxeter which is a very popular attraction. Finally and for the most exciting adventure of your visit to Staffordshire we have Alton Towers on our door step (5 mins drive), along with Splash Landings, spas and crazy golf. It is a great area to explore
  • Photographs do not do this place justice. An absolutely fantastic property with Great Hosts. The perfect place to stay for Alton Towers. A* All-round.

  • Beautifully finished and immaculately clean accommodation, fantastic hosts and so very helpful. The location is just perfect to explore the area and also could not be any better for going to Alton Towers. Highly recommended for a couple or a family.

    Angela2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is just idyllic! Gorgeous views, warm welcome, a very stylish and comfortable space, with everything you could need for your stay. Russell and Jeanette were wonderful and friendly hosts, checking in to make sure things were good and if we needed anything. The location is fantastic too. We went to splash landings at alton towers, the churnet valley railway and ashbourne during our break, all within 20 mins of where the accommodation was. We loved it and would happily return again.

    Lucy2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely accommodation, everything was perfect. Thank you

    Natalie2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • I would definitely recommend this place to stay! It's very stylish inside, but very comfortable too. Beds are comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom very nice and easy to use. Good TV upstairs and the WiFi worked well for us. Plenty of space for four of us and good sofas for the evening time. Russell was delightful too, very responsive and helpful when making arrangements beforehand and very friendly greeting us all on arrival and helping us get settled, but then leaving us be unless we needed anything (we did, and he was very helpful with that!) The house is next to a road but traffic noise wasn't a problem, and out the back is a great view of fields which you can walk into. Russell told us about a good walk which we enjoyed, great to be able to do that from the house (with OS map provided!) In conclusion, definitely choose this place if you're considering it!

    Phil2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had a brilliant stay here! Lovely spot for walks, would highly recommend walking on the old railway towards Alton to the ramblers retreat for lunch, thank you Russell for suggesting this! Some lovely villages nearby, the house itself was a great place the fresh eggs and mince pies were a great touch, fabulous host thank you very much!

    Jenny2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • After , what can only be described as a disastrous day at Alton Towers , returning to the Willow was fantastic , the warmth , cleanliness and comfort made our trip all worth while . Beautiful accommodation and the most welcoming of hosts has made our first Airbnb experience, one we will not forget in a hurry , many thanks Russell , very much hope to return

    Luxury two-person studio apartment with a king-sized bed, sitting room area, kitchen and dining. Separate bathroom with shower, WC, basin and two heated towel rails. Next door to the main house, the apartment is on the first floor with its own private entrance from the parking area. Heronbrook Farm is a working sheep farm set in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales a few miles south of Ashbourne. Your host, Jackie, is always on site and can help with any queries throughout your stay.
    Although the apartment is on the farm, it is part of the main house complex and there is block paving from the parking area to the private front door. No wellies required! That said, please do pack your outdoor clothes and take time to walk around the farm and the rest of the estate.
    We are just south of Ashbourne, the beautiful market town known as the Gateway to the Peak District. There are footpaths from the farm, with many more beautiful walks a short drive away, whether you want to stroll by the River Dove or head for the high ground. Local attractions include Alton Towers (10 mins drive), Uttoxeter Racecourse (10 mins drive), and a large number of village pubs all serving evening meals.
  • Beautiful studio flat on a sheep farm....spotlessly clean,comfy bed,very comfortable space to relax in with nice homely touches. Certainly recommend staying here to explore the Peak district.

    Mellany2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Jackie was great and the studio was lovely with really nice extra touches. Wish we had been able to stay longer - would stay again and recommend

    Charlotte2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Ideally placed for a relaxing stay after a day at Alton Towers, just what was needed - so much so we cancelled our plans for dinner and ate in after a quick trip to the shop. Cannot fault anything and the shower is top notch. Fresh farm eggs for breakfast..lovely!

    Greg2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Just back from a wonderful 2 night stay at Jackies Studio. The studio itself was absolutely spotless and so comfortable! We arrived to the smell of delicious home baked bread and fresh eggs and milk in the fridge which were a delight both mornings for breakfast! The surroundings are so peaceful and exactly what we needed as a little escape from London. We stayed to fit in a trip to Alton towers which was only a short drive from the studio. Jackie also recommended a few pubs/restaurants including the Crown Inn which we visited both nights. Great homecooked food and homely service! Perfect weekend and wouldn’t change a thing!

    Carly2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful studio apartment in a lovely rural setting. Jackie was the perfect host making sure we had everything we needed. There’s a couple of handy village shops and some nice local pubs for dinner! We’ll certainly be back as it’s a lovely place to get away for a couple of child free days.

    Jon2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely stay at Jackie's. The studio was super with everything that we needed. The freshly baked bread and fresh eggs and extra bonus.

    Mairi2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

    Keepers Cottage was converted from its previous use as a log store and pig sty by ourselves some twenty years ago.What we have achieved is to offer an up to date quality cottage while maintaining all the old world charm so often lost in barn conversions.The downstairs 4 poster bedroom has a modern shower room next door while upstairs there is a double or twin bedroom with ensuite bath. The main living area is open plan with Sofas, Log burner and TV. Main cooking area and rustic dining table.
    While the cottage is ideal for families it can also be perfect for two doubles or twin usage.Also ideal for walkers or just a truly relaxing away from it all break
    Keepers Cottage is ideal for exploring both the Peak District and local Stately Homes while being only 18 miles from the world famous Potteries. Alton Towers Theme Park is only 3 miles away
  • Such a lovely cottage in a really peaceful and relaxing setting. It was our second visit and we hope to stay again in the future.

    Sarah2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful place. Such character. Especially loved the fire and the four poster bed.

    Ben2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Keepers Cottage is a true little treasure. The picture's really don't do it justice. The cottage is full of character and charm, from original doors to the four poster bed and the lovely fireplace. We ended up arriving a little later than planned but Chris was great and responded to messages very quickly, along with easy to follow instructions on how to get to the property. We were provided with tea, coffee, sugar and milk in the very stylish kitchen, along with coal and kindling for the fire. It was the perfect weekend getaway spot in the countryside, to relax and reset. Could not recommend this place enough! Hope to stay again very soon.

    Emily2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Had bags of character and fabulous little lodge,and the little touches was great like some milk in fridge and cookies on the side love this plase

    Royston2019-10-25T00:00:00Z

    Fabulous Grade II listed cottage dating back to 1790, recently renovated to a high standard throughout and offering every degree of comfort.

  • A beautiful little place with loads of character. Perfect for a weekend getaway.

    Tom2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Holly Cottage is a delightful place to stay. It is cosy and warm, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. The cottage is tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean and has everything you need for a relaxing break. There is a lovely view from every window and it is perfectly situated for exploring the beautiful Peak District, and Dovedale in particular.

    Sally2019-10-07T00:00:00Z

    Jimmy2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • A superb cottage that's well located, not far from Ashbourne, in a totally tranquil setting overlooking an ancient church and a country lane. The owner has thought everything through and the accommodation itself and everything in it is of excellent quality. Highly recommended.

    Ellie2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Michele’s cottage was sparkling clean everywhere. It is a small cottage but is well thought out and feels very spacious when you are there. We really enjoyed our stay and Michelle had great local tips for what we could do while visiting.

    Ellie2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A really beautiful space, the pictures do not do the place justice, if all you want is quiet, impeccably cleaned and cosy holiday let them this is for you. Really good access too all the Peak District with a very accommodating host.

    Thomas2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy cottage for two, pictures show it off well, everything you will need for a short break, we were staying for a wedding so useful to have the iron to take the creases out the shirt and wardrobe space to hang the dress, plenty of parking, comfy bed, good shower and well stocked kitchen with the joy of a dishwasher and the added bonus of Netflix on the TV for an evening in and separate coat cupboard for wet gear. The pub was in an easy walking distance (do book if you want to eat there as gets busy) and good location for plenty of sightseeing in the area. Would definitely recommend.

    Sally2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful little cottage! There is everything you need and more, for a comfortable and relaxing stay. Each of the rooms is thoughtfully and tastefully presented. There are lovely views from each window. It is in a pretty village , with a great country pub within 5 minutes walking distance.

  • Great stay at Robb’s, great location, we were staying to visit Alton Towers which was just 4 mins away, perfect! Had the place to ourselves so didn’t get to meet our host, but plenty of communication kept us in the loop with instructions etc. Would definitely stay again.

    Tracy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful house and great location for anyone visiting Alton Towers. Great communication with host. Clean and comfortable. A great place to stay and nothing is too much trouble. We were even offered breakfast. Thank you so much.

    Ashley2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • FANTASTIC location for Alton Towers!! My daughter & I stayed here while we visited Alton towers & the water park. It’s just a stone throw away. The house is lovely & big, very quite, pretty village. Room was big, clean, cosy & warm. We didn’t get the chance to explore, but there seemed to be some lovely places to visit. Would highly recommend

    Pauline2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely room and the perfect location for a trip to Aton Towers.

    Emma2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay, the house is really beautiful. Little one loved all the toys in the living room and had an amazing time. It was really easy to find and literally 5min drive from Alton Towers. We haven’t met Robbert as he couldn’t make to meet us but left us clear notes of where everything is and how all works. The only downside we had was that we ordered takeaway from Cheadle Pizza place and we had hair in the food so do not get the food from there.

    Evelina2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed here for the night before a day at Alton Towers and had a lovely time. Robb was very quick to answer my questions on how to get to the house and had wonderful tips on local eateries.

    Esther2019-09-22T00:00:00Z

He was sadly away when we stayed allowing us use of the lounge which was an added bonus. I highly recommend Robbert's place.

    Chained Oak Farm is located directly opposite Alton Towers theme park and is set in its own grounds of 24 acres of woodland. The Lodge overlooks the churnet valley; the views are magnificent designated as 'an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
    The wooden Lodge is a really unique and exciting place to stay! You have your own space with an under cover sitting area, fire pit next to a pond and a cosy wooden finished room with an en-suite bathroom! There is a fridge and bbq for your use.
    Pubs, walking, endless countryside, wildlife, great for star gazing, Alton towers, Alton castle, edge of the Peak District, football/croquet lawn
  • An amazing little lodge! We arrived and Liz directed us to the lodge even though she wasn’t home. A beautiful little place to stay with a fire pit. It was mine and my boyfriends first getaway together and couldn’t have spent it anywhere better! We missed breakfast on the first morning and left the place looking rather untidy as we woke up late. When we arrived back after being at Alton Towers for the day, Liz had been in and tidied everything away and made the bed for us. I wasn’t expecting this at all but it was lovely to come back after an exhausting day and just relax. We got the fire pit going and spent most of the night next to it

    Eleanor2020-03-09T00:00:00Z

  • Our second stay at the fab cabin. Lovely, peaceful and warm, even in this awful weather! Will come back again for the summer :)

    Jess2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We can not fault our experience! Liz was an excellent host and provided just the right amount of ‘hosting’ to ensure our trip was a success. On arrival, Liz shares her excellent local knowledge and we were soon on our way (down the footpath) to the local tea shop The Ramblers Retreat, which had the best outside seating space I’ve ever seen - never mind the tasty brownies and gingerbread lattes. The cabin its self was pristinely clean and tidy and is set beside a beautiful pond area and rolling hillside which makes for relaxing sitting for seeing the evening in. The bathroom is well equipped and the water is hot! The bedroom was lovely and warm and we didn’t even need to put the electric blanket on (and we visited in feb!). We had a Chinese takeaway on the first night and Liz was really helpful with her suggestions and selection of menus. We are in the garden/breakfast room and Liz kindly provided us with plates and cutlery - and cleared away the mess! Thanks!! The lounge was available throughout our stay, which had a roaring open fire, seating and a TV with many DVDs to choose from. Breakfast in the morning was top quality with full English, fruit, yoghurts and cereals, and Liz again went above and beyond to ensure we had tried traditional Staffordshire oat cakes before we left - they were fab! Thank you Liz for a wonderful stay at the Chained Oak; we had a great stay and will be visiting again soon.

    Amy2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • An amazing stay. Beautiful cabin finished with thoughtful touches and very clean. Breakfast was also amazing and with lovely hosts. Short walk to a couple of lovely pubs for food and drinks on the night. Will definitely be back in the summer months!

    We can offer a delightful double room, with ensuite shower room. The room is spacious and on the ground floor of our barn conversion offering excellent privacy.

A small bed within the room can be provided for a third person (child) at an extra cost of £10 per night.
  • Kevin & Lesley were outstanding hosts, from arrival to departure they ensured that myself and my partner had everything that we needed to enjoy a wonderful stay in their home. They were both easy to get along with and with their local knowledge of restaurants left us with ample choice of places to eat. Their guest quarters are spacious & stylish, giving us access to amenities it felt like home away from home. We sadly did not get to keep their dogs as much as my partner would have gladly taken them home overall great hosts and we could not have asked for a better stay.

    Andrew2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Me and my partner spent 2 nights at this amazing barn conversion located in a beautiful and quiet little village. Everything about their home was amazing and the hosts (Kevin and Lesley) couldn’t have done more for us. Breakfast was delightful, with fresh fruits, croissants, yogurts, cereal etc being prepared each morning. About 5 mins away from the barn was a local pub called the Duncombe arms, which although was a bit pricey, served amazing food. Alton towers is only a 10 minute drive away, which me and my partner visited so we could act like a couple of kids for the weekend....and we did lol. I would 100% recommend this amazing barn conversion to anyone looking to stay within this area :-)

    Stuart2019-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing 2 night stay at this beautiful barn conversion situated in a stunning location. Within walking distance was a fantastic village pub where we both enjoyed a lovely meal.

    Stuart2019-06-22T00:00:00Z

    Ed2019-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous place in a quiet village. Communication was good, directions accurate, and a warm welcome from the hosts. I was made to feel welcome, printed maps and directions for walks on my arrival, and a comfortable room. Although it was June, the weather was grey and damp, so a fire was lit especially for me for when I got back from having dinner at the pub. Lovely lounge all to myself, plenty of room to relax. For breakfast a most splendid fresh fruit platter, and freshly cooked croissants! Lovely, friendly, thoughtful hosts. Would recommend!

    Tanya2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • Kevin and Lesley are very generous hosts. The room was beautiful and comfortable. They very kindly let us use their living room with an amazing log fire. Breakfast was very generous. They gave us local tips about where to have supper. The local area is beautiful and relaxing. Altogether our stay exceeded our expectations. Thank you.

A good workspace was available with WiFi. Also the friendly animals in a lovely setting were a bonus. Would 100% recommend anyone to stay. Thank you 👍

  • We had a lovely stay. Gill was very friendly and helpful and accommodating with the check in times as we had a long journey and several of us travelling up. The cottage was beautiful and was kept to a very high standard with some really nice touches such as leaving us coffee, teas, chocolate! We made use of all the beds as there were so many of us and we were all very comfortable! Will definitely stay here again when we come up next time, thank you!

    Many of our guests come to spend some time at Alton Towers theme park which is just two miles from Lower Micklin. After a hectic day at the park they find the peace and space to relax at Lower Micklin a welcome refuge compared to staying at the resort. A car is essential to get to us as we are in a rural location with limited public transport. However, there is a bus service to take you to Alton Towers if you do not wish to drive.
  • A great weekend with stunning views and a very warm and comfortable place to rest after a busy day at Alton Towers. Kieran also kindly posted back a pair of trainers which we accidentally left behind, thank you 😊

  • We had a fantastic stay with Kieron and family. Even though we checked in later than originally scheduled, it was no hassle at all. The cottage was clean tidy and exactly as advertised, and very well provisioned. We found a great little place for breakfast the next day at our hosts recommendation. All in all the perfect place for our Alton Towers break!
