We stayed here in late October during the first Scarefest week at Alton Towers. Laura the owner is welcoming, kind and considerate. For example ramped the heating up when she knew we would be coming in cold and wet from a particularly rainy day. Her communication is great, she is a very considerate host which makes for a great experience....

If you want a great place to stay whilst visiting Alton Towers, I'd really recommend this nice little one-bed cottage. Literally a 2 minute walk to the main entrance, it really is closer to the entrance than the Alton Towers Hotel or Splash Landings Hotel on the resort! My partner and I stayed two nights at the end of August...

I work at the Alton Towers Resort and i stopped in the Farley Cottage B&B. From the moment you get there to the moment you leave, you feel as if your staying with your mum.

Literally 30 seconds walk from the main gate to Alton Towers, the hospitality couldn't be warmer nor beds more comfortable! At a fraction of the price of the Theme Park Hotels this is the perfect option to be the first through the turnstiles.

My girlfriend and I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was the highlight which was clean and spacious and seemed to have been very recently installed.
