From the moment I booked I knew this place was a Gem. Communication was fabulous. On arrival there was a welcome gift of wine and essential items. This made us feel special. The cottage is well equipped with anything and everything you should need during your stay. It’s clean and decorated to a high standard in fact it felt like my dream home. The attic bedroom is perfect for teens and children with lots of games on a PlayStation. We have a wide range of DVDs and books and jigsaws and games in case we have a rainy day. Location wise it’s simple perfect- Alton towers is just up the road (great for my teens) but as we came for our doggies holiday let’s focus on that. Dog bowls provide (Mischa was very interested) and a lockable yard. So many Beautiful walks all from your door. Misha was in doggy heaven. The shower is great and kitchen is fabulous - you name it, it’s there. 100% we will be coming back. Thank you Ash cottage Zoë, Daniel, Kit, chronic and Mischa

Ash House is a cosy and well-equipped cottage in a perfect location for Alton Towers and some beautiful walks in the countryside. There are a couple of really good pubs in a short walking distance that both serve food, as well as a great little shop. The cottage was well stocked with items we needed for our toddler and was very safe for him to explore.

We are just home from a 3 night stay at Ash House and will definitely return. After visiting Alton towers for many years we were delighted to find this perfectly beautiful cottage and wouldn’t go anywhere else now. It had everything we needed and we received a lovely welcome pack with treats for our stay. The cottage is spotlessly clean and so comfortable with a well equipped kitchen if you want to cook while there. Alton village is just lovely with some great local pubs that have fab food. It’s Less than 5 mins to Alton Towers which was also great. The cottage is really spacious, there were 6 of us and there was lots of room. It is also really cozy, when we got n at night it was getting chilly, a wee boost of heat and the whole place was as lovely and warm. There is a post office and small shop just a short walk selling anything you need. Cheadle is around 10 min drive with lots of shops and pubs/take aways. I would definitely Highly recommend Ash House, We are going to book now for our next stay Thank you for our lovely stay

We had a fabulous weekend at Ash House as a surprise for my husband’s birthday. The cottage is in a lovely location. It is such a comfortable and cosy place, and plenty big enough for a family of 5. It was very well equipped with everything you would need. The kids loved the top bedroom and there were some lovely touches with the fluffy blankets. Alton itself is a lovely village with a decent shop and some lovely pubs. Lovely walks on the doorstep but also close to walks in Dovedale and the like. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage and hope to enjoy another visit in the future.

We had a superb time at Ash House! We were going to Alton towers and came across Ash House on booking.come... we were not disappointed! The house is clean, cosy and much larger than photos show. The location is fantastic for the park and not to mention the pub right around the corner 🤩. Everything you need is provided at the property The treats (wine, groceries, biscuits...) were well received, thank you! Such a lovely touch. Will be staying at Ash House again, everything was hassle free and enjoyable. Thanks again! 😁

Well what can I say this cottage has got it all, Ideal size for 4 Adults and two or 3 children although it is rated 3 bedrooms sleeps six, the attic bedroom has three single beds ideally suited for three kids. Looking from the outside looks small,no its a tardis, large dining kitchen with a full size cooker range, large sitting room with two couches TV, WiFi etc and two large double bedrooms and family bathroom with separate shower and bath. Small courtyard leads directly on to the road. Parking across the busy road with ample free spaces. This cottage is in an ideal area for the peak District and all its beauty, within 15 to 30 minutes drive Threntham gardens,go Ape, Burton adventure farm and maize,JCB is only 10 minutes drive at Rocester, lovely walks around the lake and there is a small pitch and putt golf course,lots to do from Alton, not forgetting the famous Alton Towers which is only 20 minutes walk from the cottage. Lots of pubs in the village with limited dinning options because of covid 19,but they have got it well sorted. Londis shop in the village, but if you need a bigger shop, Morrisons is not far away, also tesco. The cottage as got a separate fridge and freezer in the garage and a fridge in the kitchen. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this cottage and will be back in the near future.

Great cottage with lots of character. Would definitely stay again. Query and nicely decorated. Note the third bedroom is a loft bedroom with stairs off the second bedroom and no door - but great for kids.

The location to Alton Towers makes this property the most ideal place to stay for the 5 minutes journey for the fun filled family break. Ash house is also great for eating out leaving the car as three pubs that I visited The White Hart & The Bulls Inn are both within 2mins walk and The Blacksmiths Arms a 10mins walk all serving lovely food. This was our 2nd visit staying at Ash House and we'll visit again.

Just returned from a lovely weekend at Ash House. It's a beautiful cosy cottage which contains everything you need for a short stay away. We were worried that being on the main road to Alton Towers - 5 minutes away, it would be very noisy but the owners have provided for this with glazing which shuts out all the noise. Thoroughly recommend this cottage.

This is the second time we've stayed at Ash House. We love the location, right in the heart of Alton, close to the Bull's Head and the local store. It has all the comforts of home, including comfy beds, a real fire, fully equipped kitchen, games, books and DVDs for cosy nights in. Top spot for visiting Alton Towers, when it's open. Note the third bedroom is accessed via stairs within the second bedroom – great for families, but might compromise the privacy of groups of friends.
