Holiday Rental House
Old Castle Inn is a large converted public house full of character and with unusual architectural features, close to Alton Towers and the beautiful Peak National Park. The beautiful village of Alton sits above the Churnet Valley adjacent to glorious Dimmingsdale on the edge of the Peak District. It is ideal for walkers and cyclists (a disused railway line passes through the village). It is situated less than 5 minutes from Alton Towers resort - a bus is available from the bottom of the road. The village has 5 pubs, most of which offer good food, and an excellent restaurant on the same street as the property. Nearby are the historic towns of Ashbourne and Cheadle (with it's fine Pugin church).
