Went there and we was treated like part of the family. 10/10 for everything. Can't say anything negative. Especially seeing as were from london I can't stress enough how great it was here. The local pubs are awesome as well. They look old and dated from the outside but when you go inside its completely different and very nice. I'll...

Booked this directly with the owners. Nothing was too much trouble. We had said that we would possibly be arriving around midday on our first day, and they said that would be fine, even if the room wasn't ready we could leave our stuff and they would give us our key to return later. En route, we were actually going...

What a lovely caring family these folk were! It was a pleasure to look after them. We were sorry that one of the boys was poorly during overnight. Being unwell is not good when your at home and even worse when your away. There we go, sometimes life does not go smoothly. Under the circumstances this family made the best...

Have to admit i booked this stay blind, i wanted somewhere close to Alton Towers, didnt read the reviews, didn't check the local area, didn't plan meals etc (i know!).

We have been staying at this B&B when we visit family in the Alton area for over 6 years. It is clean, homey and well run. The family who run the place are fantastic.
