Stayed here for only one nights camping and it was brilliant, friendly staff, from speaking on the phone to getting there were very helpful, made a special effort for me as there was only one space left and I was unable to book online, held the space for me till I could sort it. Nice grounds heated washrooms, and cottages...

I found this lovely little camp site whilst looking for an inexpensive place to stay for visiting Alton Towers with my boyfriend. When I saw how close this was (a 10 minute drive) and how cheap it was compared to other sites I wondered what it would be like as to be honest it seemed too good to be true....

As a newcomer to the whole camping scenrio I found this camp site to be excellent. The owners were friendly and welcoming and the showers etc were incredibly clean. We spent 2 nights here when taking my other half to Alton Towers for his birthday. We were with 2 other couples and we had a relaxing and care free stay....

My family and I pitched our tent here for three nights, as one of the days we were spending at Alton Towers Theme Park. This is a great location for Alton Towers, you are only a 15 minute car journey away. The campsite is very small, which suited us anyway as we were always out and about. The first day/night...

Just stopped for one night prior to a day at Alton towers. We were camping on a hard standing pitch with hook-up. Site was clean and owners very friendly. Only fifteen pitches. Family bathroom as well as single sex toilets and showers that are clean and warm. Will definitely book again next time we are that way.

We have just returned from a two night stay at cottage number 3. this is our second visit, and we will definitely return again. The location is ideal fro a trip to Alton towers, and is lovely and peaceful. The cottages are cosy, and have special little touches that make it perfect, like menus of the local restaurants and take...

The location of the site is perfect if you are visiting Alton Towers. We spent three nights here during the first week of the Easter holidays and it couldn't be more perfect. The hard standing pitches are large and have small wooden fences round the perimeter, plenty of room for a van, awning, car and outside tables and chairs if...

We go to Splash Landings every year and have tried various accommodation including the Alton towers hotel. This was the best trip we have had by miles. We stayed for 2 nights for about the same price as one night at the hotel which meant we didn't have to do the long drive on the same day as swimming. We...

This is probably the best cottage i have been too. They had all the stuff you would need inside them, including dishes, cups, glasses. We didn't expect all of that but it was a added bonus. It is also a 5-8 min drive to the actual theme park which makes it ideal for people travelling from far. The price is...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Lower Micklin Self Catering Accommodation is set in 10 acres of grassland allowing plenty of room for children to play in safety. Half of a mile outside Alton village and five minutes drive from Alton Towers, Lower Micklin Holiday Cottages are also situated at the edge of the Peak District and a few miles from Uttoxeter racecourse. All our lodges are self contained, spacious and well appointed. Each cottage has its own fully equipped kitchen area, large shower room, and lounge/dining area with colour TV and dvd player. Centrally heated and double glazed, they are warm and comfortable whatever the weather. All towels and linen are provided. Unlike most self catering facilities, we happily accept guests for short periods allowing you to visit Alton Towers, rest overnight and move on to the next part of your holiday, or alternatively, stay a few days more and visit some of the other local places of interest. Guests are welcome to make use of the spacious outside facilities including climbing frame, swings, ball game field with goalposts and walking paths. Barbeque facilities, including fuel, are available on request. This outdoor space makes our cottages a great alternative to hotels near Alton Towers or the Alton Towers Enchanted Village Lodges. ... more   less
