“Inspired!”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

My husband and I have just returned from Wizard's Thatch, after a truly inspiring stay. We were looking for something a little bit different and we were absolutely thrilled on arrival. The building is as if it has escaped from a fairytale, with exposed beams and a terrific foliage-smothered thatched roof. We had the pleasure of staying in the Camelot suite on our first night, and then the Merlin suite on the second. Both suites were fantastic, clearly maintained to the very highest standard, and filled with interesting historical material to discover.

We brought our dog along and had a very lovely afternoon walking in the woods high above the village. Alderley Edge is a very lovely part of the world and we found the people we met friendly and welcoming.

Thanks for such a lovely break. We were truly amazed at just how fantastic Wizard's Thatch is, and we can't wait to come back soon.

We stayed for two nights in the Merlin suite between Christmas and New Year. The suite was amazing, so unique and quirky. Alderley edge high street is literally a 30 second walk away with an abundance of lovely bars and restaurants. Many thanks to Ian, who whilst clearly very busy, still made time to show us around the other suites. This is a really special place and we would definitely recommend to anyone looking for something that little bit different. We can't wait to return.

Never been to this part of the world before and it is very nice. Wizards Thatch is delightful and the people are friendly. The only small drawback for me was the cramped bathroom but it is definitely a pleasure to visit.

Myself and my partner stayed here for 1 night on Friday 27th December. We stayed in the Camelot suite. It is like having your own little Hansel and Gretel style house for the evening. There is so much to see! We had a table booked at the Grill on the Edge, and whilst we did go there to eat, we would have been more than happy staying in all night with a takeaway. You want to make the most of your time there because the accommodation is so unique.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Ian who made us feel at home but wasn't intrusive. He advised us of local walks and eateries for breakfast etc, and was really pleasant and polite.

We will definitely be returning to stay in one of the other suites.

If you enjoy something different and not just your run of the mill hotel and B and B, then this is the place for you!

Amazing!

My husband & I stayed for 1 night in the Camelot suite as our Xmas present to each other. Met by Ian who showed us around the suite, was so friendly, and gave us so much information about places to visit in the area.
The suite was truly magical, so cosy and quirky, filled with so many interesting artefacts & books, you need at least a week to see & read everything! Luxurious & comfortable, every need has been considered.
We took in some beautiful walks up to the top at the Edge, and the village itself is so pretty & full of wonderful shops, bars & restaurants.
We had drinks in the De Trafford pub - very cosy, then wanting to make the most of our beautiful suite, took a takeaway & bottle of wine back. Plenty of DVDs to choose from for a cosy night in!
Had breakfast at the Village Cafe. Can highly recommend this - huge helpings & lovely friendly staff!
Wizards Thatch is the perfect place for a weekend getaway. Couldn't fault it & can't wait to return!

I have been wanting to stay at the Wizard's Thatch since I saw it on Four in a Bed and my husband surprised me with an overnight stay in the Wizardry for my birthday. Ian could not have been kinder or more helpful showing us around and explaining everything to us before leaving us to enjoy the romance of the Wizardry. I loved every minute of my stay and the bed is amazing. I cannot recommend it highly enough and I am hoping to stay again soon. Fabulous in every way.

Outstanding and unique property one block from the center of town. The Merlin Suite, up one flight of stairs, was charming. Plenty of room for one or a couple. I was in town for business and the desk, wifi, leather coach and ample supply of complimentary biscuits, coffee and tea made for an excellent work environment. Ian is a wonderful host and provided great recommendations for restaurants, all of which were within easy walking distance. I would gladly stay here again.
