This cottage is a home from home. The owners have thought of everything you could possibly need. It is really spacious, modern and clean. The setting is really pretty. It is close to many attractions. The hot tub was an appreciated added bonus. The welcome hamper was really lovely. Loved the coffee machine, the selection of DVD's, magazines available and the SMART TV's. It was great for our one year old and two year old. We put a stair gate between the kitchen and hall and they still had plenty of space to play in/get about (kitchen/lounge/sunroom). Fantastic holiday all round all thanks to such fantastic accommodation. Thanks to the owners! Highly recommend!
Myself and 3 other friends stayed at this lovely cottage for 3 nights whilst we visited Alton Towers resort (a short and traffic free journey from the cottage) and we were all thouroughly impressed with the establishment, the owners were welcoming and accustoming considering we arrived at the time of 11.30pm! The cottage itself was excellent, extremely clean and with more features than could be dreamed of including a quality kitchen with all utensils and appliances required, a lovely living space and bathrooms were top of the range. Of course the hot tub helped to put the icing on the cake! Considering we were only the second set of people to stay at the cottage i thought they had already got it spot on! Already planning to go back and stay there even just for the cottage itself, a pleasure.
Very hard to fault this place. Excellent welcome basket, very well equipped from wifi to hot tub, short drive to walk, cycle or explore the local history. Owners extremely helpful. Well out in the country down a long driveway but 10 minutes from sainsbury wait rose and M & S if you need them. Downstairs single room would be easily wheelchair accessible if you needed it.
Quite simply put, this is THE best cottage we have ever stayed in. It is beautiful, even better than the photos, and the owners are fantastic. We booked for Christmas 2015 but due to an unexpected illness in the family we didn't actually get there until Boxing Day (4 days late) and to be honest we weren't sure whether to bother making the effort but thank goodness we did as we ended up having a wonderful time, albeit a much shorter holiday than expected! As soon as we arrived we were made really welcome by the owners, the stove was lit and a beautifully decorated Christmas tree had been put up in the living room - we immediately felt at home. The welcome basket was AMAZING - the best we have ever had. The cottage is a really good size and very luxurious with some wonderful personal touches - the hot tub is the icing on the cake. The area is lovely and there is so much to see and do - we can't wait to go back. If you want somewhere to stay with the WOW factor then this is the place - book it now you really won't be disappointed!
Stayed here with my wife, 2 kids (aged 13 & 11) and my Mother. We generally try to book a cottage somewhere in the UK for a week around the Easter school holidays and this was easily one of the best we have ever stayed in. The owners are exceptionally welcoming. The cottage sits very close to the owners property using the same driveway with parking easily for 2/3 cars). It has a separate utility room with a washing machine and dryer as well as an ample supply of wood and coal for the fire in the evening! The outside terrace with table and chairs and hot tub is secluded enough to give privacy. The hot tub was such a good experience that we used it every day and has now become a must on our list for next year! Layout of the cottage is good and it was very clean - with a selection of games, puzzles, books and DVDs. Our only disappointment was the lack of WIFI (the owner explained this was due to delayed repair works by BT) and Vodafone mobile reception was poor. However these things could not be avoided and did not stop us enjoying the cottage. We generally tend not to visit the same place twice as we like to visit different areas of the UK but we would definitely consider staying again. If you book this cottage you will definitely not be disappointed!!!
I've just recent stayed at the Orachard cottage for the last week with my husband and 19 year old son. This cottage has utterly fantastic facilitates and was in the perfect location a very short distance from all places of interest to visit (we are keen walkers). The cottage is extremely clean and has everything you need the welcome hamper was a nice suprise, the hot tub for us topped the whole experience off. Looking to return in the near future and would highly recommend this cottage as an amazing place to stay. Just to add the owners of the cottage are lovely people and were very helpful with good local knowledge.
