“Wonderful Wizardy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

My new wife and I booked for one night the night after our wedding as a little getaway before heading back to Hk where we live.

Location was easy to find, perfect spot for walking into alderley edge. Ian was welcoming and helpful, showed us the rooms and the doors and where to park (approx 2 mins walk away in the church car park).

We arrived late afternoon, unpacked and decided to watch sleepless in Seattle on the DVD player. We ordered Chinese take away from the local (the alderley rose i think) which was great and had a drink in the trafford arms whilst we waited which was also nice.

We stayed in the Merlin suite which was perfect for a short stay, a bedroom with four poster, and a seperate sitting room with sofa and various cutlery / plates / teas / coffee etc.

The next morning we headed to the Bubble Room for brunch which was very good, and did a bit of 'celeb' spotting before heading off.

Overall we would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a romantic 'getaway'. A really nice treat.

Wizard's Thatch is a hidden gem and something very special indeed.
Lovingly restored by it's owners, it is a travellers delight.
If you love character properties and you appreciate things gone by Wizard's Thatch is for you.
What is amazing about this place is the attention to detail and details that are obviously well thought out with everything in mind.
We stayed in the Merlin Suite which was cosy and intimate, beautifully furnished and it kind of had that log cabin feel to it although on the upper floor.
Enjoying our stay so much we stayed another night in the Camelot Suite, again beautifully furnished with more of a cottage/house feel than the Merlin.
Both had their own special charm.
Advice is to view pictures of the Suites to choose for yourself but whichever you decide on you would not be disappointed.
Thank you Ian for a wonderful stay, you made us very welcome,
Ruth and John.

Room Tip: View photos then decide which suite for you.

So pleased I discovered this delightful hidden gem! I could not fault anything in this beautifully restored cottage. We stayed in the Wizardry, but all the Suites have been restored to the same high standard. It was like something you'd see on a film set - truly amazing - full of character and definitely unique. I will, without doubt, be visiting again - probably try the Camelot Suite next time.

The Wizards Thatch is a lovely intriguing place to stay, it was spotlessly clean and the attention to detail exceptional.
A great deal of thought had gone into makeing sure our stay was enjoyable and comfortable, with tea/coffee, cake and biscuits a fridge stocked with milk, a microwave, cutlery and crockery so you could fix your self a hot snack if you desired.
It was a shame that we were only there for one night as I loved sleeping in a four poster bed, the sitting room and second bedroom were a great bonus as my mum was also with me, so it was good to be together but with our own space. Will definitely stay at the Wizard again.

Minutes away from the center of Alderley Edge the wizards thatch transports you back in time and a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The property has been lovingly and sympathetically restored with a great deal of attention being paid to every detail. We stayed in the wizardry, it was comfy, cosy, and full of interesting artefacts. Looking forward to returning and trying out one of the other suites.

Everything we hoped it would be and more. We had such fun on our one night spent here. There was nothing more we could have asked for or wanted. We were just sorry we were only staying the one night. A very special place. I am very fussy, but the accomodation was spotless. Well done and many thanks. We will definitely revisit.

What an truely unique and amazing place Wizards Thatch is. My lovely boyfriend had booked it for us as a complete surprise as he had found it online and decided I'd love it!
How right he was, I felt like the Princess in The Princess and The Pea - the bed was SOOO big and comfy.
I loved the attention to detail, and spent hours looking at all the antiques and curiosities that provide the atmosphere and sense of escapism that Wizards Thatch gives you.
The location is brilliant for Alderley Edge high street which we ventured out to in the evening - although it would have been just as wonderful to stay in as it's so romantic.
We were lucky enough to be shown around all the rooms, and it's fair to say they are all as quirky and oppulant as each other.
Ian was a wonderful host and we both hope to be able to return in the not too distant future.
We will DEFINITELY stay again when we next travel to Cheshire.
