Previous visitors' comments about Lilac Cottage:
The cottage was so well equipped and was a great base for Alton Towers which was only 7 miles away. The cottage itself was great and the owner even baked us a cake on arriving. Overall a great holiday and great base.

Mr Curran, Newry, September 2012
Everything! I called the owner the day before arrival to inform her of our arrival time. We arrived at the cottage, found the key, went in and the first thing we see is a home made cake waiting for us. The lady had also been in and put the heating on for us arriving. The cottage was lovely, extremely well equipped with everything you need, right down to soap powder. There's a welcome pack in the cottage that is just excellent, tells you where you can eat, visit, shop, even has numbers for takeaways. We had a lovely stay here, so much so, we didn't want to leave. We had breakfast in the main house on our last day. Lilac Cottage, is just lovely and the owner is very friendly without being intrusive. She actually couldn't do anything more to make a stay at the cottage any better! We'll be back for sure.

Easy access to local areas. If you enjoy walking a variety of walking routes, ie Dove Valle, Manifold Valley, RSPB reserves and, Carsington Water. These are all excellent. If you enjoy looking around National Trust Properties, there are several in quite close proximity.
