“Everything we hoped it would be”
Reviewed 15 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This Rental was just superb for our groups needs, myself and 4 of my friends traveled to Stoke-on-Trent from all over the country to meet for my 25th birthday, where we were spending some time in alton towers theme park and some time in alton towers hotel spa. Gabby the Owner was so helpful on the lead up to our arrival and at the time of booking. we had all the information we needed, and if we needed to know anything about the house or local area she was only to happy to answer a text with information. The house was clean tidy and had everything we needed. A lovely open log fire and 5 beautifully presented bedrooms each with there own decorative flare, plenty of rooms downstairs for us all to sit and have a drink and catch up. the local area is brilliant the local pubs offer real local hearty food at great prices, and in the car we were 5 minutes from the theme park. the car was securely parked directly outside the property and the village is very quiet. Would stay again in a heartbeat, nothing to complain about at all. and thanks from all of us for making my birthday 1 to remember.
