A lovely place to stay and just right for our large group. There was plenty of space including the outside patio area where we enjoyed a barbecue. We had reasonably good weather and enjoyed exploring the locality. The proximity to alton Towers was a bonus as it is within walking distance.
The only complaints we had were just minor niggles as the bedside lamps (one in each room)were not working. We also found that the lighting at nigh-time in the living room was inadequate. The shower screen had been broken previously and needed replacing, the owner suggested we continue using the shower, however this led to constant water puddles on the floor and we had to buy microfibre cloths to place in the area.
On the whole we all enjoyed our stay and would definitely book again if we needed to cater for a large party.
Excellant and comfortable break

Superb accomodation. Excellant location for alton Towers, walking distance and saved hassle of parking. Accomodation was very spacious and ample room for 8 adults and 2 children. Great having the 4 bathrooms. The scenery surrounding the cottage was breath taking and created a very relaxing atmosphere making us feel rested after out holiday. The living area was spacious and plenty room for all to sit comfortably.

We booked this cottage through Sykes and the whole process was very easy. The group was five couples (all old university friends) and this was virtually the only property we could find with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Four double rooms (two with en suite) plus a twin room and two bathrooms was just brilliant for our purposes. We loved the massive lounge and the bid dinner table and benches which we could all sit round for a meal. We were travelling from around teh UK so the location was great too - right in the middle for us. The cottage had everything you needed (apart from bin liners!) - and if that's the only fault we can find you can see how much we liked it! Would definitely recommend this. Almost don't want to as we want to keep it a secret so it doesn't get fully booked!!
chilled out relaxed fun times!

The bathrooms were very clean as were all the living spaces. The beds were very comfy and the kitchen was clean and well supplied with disehes plates pans etc! it was lovely all sitting chatting round the fire and there was planty of seating for all 10 of us! We would book again and are looking into going back there this year!
