    “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.

    - Mrs Peto, September 2020

    We're so glad you had a great holiday. Thank you for your feedback. Much of this relates to the changes we had to make during the pandemic; we're pleased to say that we're now able to provide towels for all guests and our welcome book with all the info you need about the property and local area has been returned. The drive isn't on a steep slope and we've not heard of anyone having trouble before. We have taken the opportunity to refresh the photos so our guests have a really clear view of the property and the facilities. We hope to see you again soon. - Sykes owner relations
