Wizards Thatch at Alderley Edge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 May 2014

My parents recently stayed in the Wizards Thatch to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary, they were welcomed by the owner Ian Lambert, who could not do enough for them. This is a truly enchanting and magical place that wraps it's self around you.

We stayed 2 nights at WT and absolutely loved it-first of all it is a cosy, cutely furnished hut in a unique style, secondly it had all possible things to make you feel comfortable and welcome-fresh bouquet of flowers, ginger cake and milk for tea, hot water bottle, romantic DVDs and new magazines!
The area is very quite, so we had a good sleep and the hotel is located in the center of the village with a wide choice of pubs and restaurants of various cuisines-we had food in 3 different place during the period of our stay and both were atmospheric, tasty and reasonably priced.
We must come back one day for sure-one of the few memorable places with a great spirit!

I stayed here once again with my husband and a few days later with my friend, both stays were in the Wizardry. What can I say, it is magical. This is a very special place, once inside the suite, whichever one of the three you choose, close the door and modern life stresses disappear. I would suggest you explore the village then after eating settle down for a glass or two of wine and relax. Ian, the owner, is as ever extremely helpful and seems like an old friend now. I cannot recommend this place highly enough, we are back in July and will be looking to return as soon after that as we can. I have reviewed this place as 5 out of 5 but that does not seem enough. Book it, you will never regret it.

Room Tip: The three suites are all fantastic and all different.

The Wizard's Thatch is the most magical place to stay!! It felt like we were spending the night in Harry Potter's house!! Could not fault a single thing and Ian's advice on where to eat etc was very helpful. It was the perfect ending to my 60th birthday celebrations and I would love to return in the future for an even longer stay.

We stayed in both the Camelot suite and the Wizardry Suite. Both full of character and the possibility of 'friends' see the photo. Ian was on hand to show us around and give advice on where to eat and what to see, nothing seemed too much trouble. Everywhere you look there is something interesting to read or look at, the girls found an old hand grenade, which had me giving a full lesson on how the thing works, due to their many questions. Clean, Warm and friendly, what more do you want from a place. We'll be back and I image our friends will visit too now.

Room Tip: The wizardry has the biggest front room with a master bedroom and a single bedroom but only one toil...

What a beautiful place. Exactly like the pictures, romantic magical and like stepping back in time. Immaculate rooms and facilities, fresh flowers and complementary cakes, teas and coffee etc even the scattered magazines were right up to date and it's these small details that count and make it much more personal. Ian the owner made sure we had everything we needed and gave us plenty of tips on where to eat and what to do during our stay. He had plenty of time to talk to us and make us feel very welcome. There was not a speck of dust anywhere! Quality towels thick robes and I could go on. Will deffo stele stay again. Book through te main website not a third party as you will get better rates an earlier check in and out times.

Only regret is only stayed one night. Will definitely return. The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, a romantic hideaway. Ian is a fantastic host. The location is excellent - no need to drive all restaurants bars and shops in walking distance - highly recommend the Greek restaurant. Don't miss out - get booking!!
