Hot tub. Close to Alton towers.

The owner was very helpful and gave us plenty of advice. It was an ideal base for a family holiday with plenty to do. The cottage was lovely with lots of room for the six of us.
Mr Lyons, Blackpool, August 2012
8 members of my family went up & met for a family wedding in Stoke-on-Trent. The cottage was very easy to find and very easy to get to Alton Towers from which is where my Son & new Daughter-in-Law's wedding day was held. The hot tub was great at the end of a long day and enjoyed by us all.
