Escape to the pretty village of Alton to this character cottage with lots of charm. With two pubs within easy walking distance there is no need to argue over who does the washing up.
Set in the picturesque and vibrant village of Alton, this spacious cottage is perfect for a getaway with family or friends. There are two welcoming pubs within a short walk and a selection of attractions for a fun-filled day out. Explore the southern Peak District on foot or by bike with plenty of trails within reach. After a day of hiking along the river, dine alfresco on the patio on warm days, or light up the wood burner for the colder seasons.
Leave muddy boots in the hallway and make yourself at home in the lounge. Curl up by the crackling fire and have a family film night complete with popcorn and sweet treats. The brick arches and exposed wooden beams fill the space with character. Original features continue through to the dining room where you can enjoy a homecooked meal together. Plate up in the country-style kitchen, while the utility area is handy for taking care of the washing. There’s plenty to keep you entertained in the games room with a PlayStation 2, a retro cards table, and tabletop football. Upstairs, you’ll find three attractive bedrooms and the option of a shower or a relaxing bath after your endeavours. Plan your next walk over an al fresco meal on the patio.
Treat the kids to a great day out at Alton Towers which is just 1.5 miles away and offers hours of fun. Keen walkers can head out onto the Manifold Trail 10 miles away and explore Thor’s Cave and Wetton Mill. Stroll around the reservoir at Carsington Water, with 8 miles of scenic lakeside views and picnic spots. For a calm wander through independent shops and galleries, the thriving town of Ashbourne has all you need.
