Very well equipped one bedroom cottage located a short distance from small shops and services. Traditional decor but modernised facilities. Nice walking nearby. Lots of little touches to make us feel at home thank you. Good communication from owners. On quite a steep hill but on street parking possible. more

Management response:

Thanks for your smashing review. Glad you liked the little touches to make your stay comfortable. Thought your review was very good and honest and I am sure other Guests will appreciate it too! more

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review. I know Alton and the surrounding area has a special place in your heart, so it is a pleasure and a privilege to have you both in our cottage and to know that you love it just as much as I do! Hope to see you again soon? more
