Stayed here with a group of friends for a hen do weekend visiting Alton Towers. We had cottages 2 and 3; both were clean and had everything we need, however they are rather dated. For some bizarre reason the heating was on in both cottages - despite it being 24 degrees! We had had a full day at Alton towers... More

Have stayed here numerous times through the years, back to when it was the Alverton, but now the land the old accommodation used to occupy has been sold off and turned in to a rather nice housing estate. The owners now only have 3 or 4 two bedroom "houses" left as the B&B. We had a lovely warm welcome and... More

We stayed here having booked 2 cottages for a weekend at Alton Towers. As a party of 10 we found the accommodation suitable for large families. Having read a few negative reviews we were a bit apprehensive, but on arrival pleasantly surprised. Plenty of space and everything we needed in the kitchen. The 2 bedrooms could comfortable sleep at least... More

Yet another great visit to The Weeping Ash (formerly Alverton Motel). This time my group had two of the selection of cottages. It should be noted that it appears the owners have sold off some of the land so it's a bit of a building site - but this did not affect our trip or enjoyment in the slightest. Both... More

Lovely friendly welcome for our late night arrival. There were 9 of us staying in two cottages aged from 3yrs to 37yrs. Everyone was happy, slept well and enjoyed our two night stay. It was perfect for young ones as we had more space and freedom than you would get from any other B&B. Ideal location for a visit to... More

Stayed here for the 3rd time. We had a lovely little cottage , up and down stairs, very clean and tidy! Got a lovely welcome from the owner who showed us around the cottage.
