We stayed here as a family prior to visiting Alton Towers; the room was very clean and comfortable and the owners were outstanding. We went to the local pub which is a very short walk away and had and excellent meal for dinner. I would fully recommend this guest house.

I've never stayed at a B&B before, but picked this one from a comparison site as it was decently priced and not to far from Alton Towers Upon arriving in this small village of Foxt in the middle of nowhere, the B&B was quite easy to find. Pulling in the drive it opens to an amazing field view with sheep...

We only stayed for one night but have no hesitation in recommending this guest house which is located in a secluded spot with lovely countryside views all around. The bedroom was good (with TV, tea/coffee etc.) and had the additional benefit of a large en-suite shower room. Breakfast (cereals, cooked food etc.) was excellent. The owner was extremely helpful in...

My wife booked us into the b&b so we could commute into Alton towers over a weekend. It was easy to find using satnav, and there was plenty of parking. The setting is lovely and we saw other couples taking pics of the local area. There is a local pub called the fox and goose which was pleasant enough with...
