    “Lovely house and we had a brilliant time.”

    Owners flexible and good communication. We would stay again. ...

    Owners flexible and good communication. We would stay again. Just a couple of useful tips; Towels are not included (as pictured) A welcome book would be useful - local takeaways, WiFi details, where to find the boiler etc.(in a cupboard in kitchen near sink) the drive is steep and a tight turn, a lowered car would struggle. No tree swing as pictured. Soooo close to Alton Towers, perfect of you are spending the day there and if not plenty of other things around. We found the chained old oak tree.
