I have stayed in the Merlin suite twice now and have had an excellent experience both times. The suite is very unique and fun. Wifi had no issues and there is a comfortable desk in the main area. It is a quiet atmosphere. There are some great restaurants and pubs a 5 minute walk away as well as a grocery...

We had a lovely mid-week stay here. The cottage is amazing, we stayed in the Wizardry and found we had everything we could possibly need and more! Location is perfect too, lots to see and do in the area and some lovely restaurants literally on the doorstep. Ian was very welcoming, obliging and informative. Will definitely stay again - Thank...

A very busy place, best pre book. Lovely Sunday lunch £14 good portions and lots of different vegetables. Dog friendly and a very historic pub. Couple of famous actors in attendance as well. Obviously very popular with the walking fraternity.

Beautiful cottage in the heart of Cheshire, the perfect getaway. Owner Ian made us feel very welcome. Much of the suite had its original features, beams/floorboards etc and the furninishing was delightful full of history and curiosities. Ideally situated for travelling into Cheshire or Greater Manchester or for just simply relaxing. We will be visiting again, and hopefully soon!

Can't speak highly enough of this place and Ian. As a family of four we had two rooms both of which are beautifully furnished with everything you could need to make a relaxing weekend! Only a minutes walk away from The shops and restaurants, a short drive from beautiful national trust walks and close to Manchester airport the Wizards Thatch...

What a quirky different place to stay in a fabulous location. It beats a regular hotel room. Although there is no bar or restaurant Alderley Edge has a wealth of places to choose from all within striking distance. Wouldn't want to be the cleaner at this place, far too many Nic Nacs to deal with..little bit too much for me.

Fantastic and magical place to stay. It's like staying in a cross between Hagrid's cottage in Harry Potter, and Sleeping Beauty's castle! Waking up in the morning in the 4-poster bed, with the light straining to squeeze through the ivy virtually covering the bedroom windows was absolutely enchanting. It's such an interesting, quirky, place to stay, there are weird, odd...

Stayed with two young children just before Christmas. Ian was so accommodating and friendly, welcoming us (late) and making us feel at home. The place was very cosy and has a lot of interesting articles. The children loved it! (although we were a little edgy about them messing with things!). But they still talk about it now, a beautiful area...

From the moment I pulled up in the car I got goosebumps. Photographs just don't do the place justice. Awaiting our arrival was a very special warm welcome from Ian. As he showed us around, through the little doorway, bells dinged, and the smell of history and beautiful fresh flowers. A good tour around the property, and shown the workings...

Great standard of service, fabulously clean and well presented, couldn't fault it in anyway. If you want to escape the 'hum drum' of life then this is the place to go! It is an Aladdin's cave full of curiosities with books and trinkets galore. It was a pleasant surprise to have the layout on two floors, much more than just...
