I stayed here with a friend for one night so we could visit Alton Towers. The hosts were very polite and helpful (particularly Terry) and were on call to answer any questions we had. The rooms were HUGE!!! and offered plenty of space as well as our own little living room with TV. The only reason I have given this...

We have just returned from an overnight stay at the Trough Ivy House. Absolutely perfect in every way! Terry and Carol welcome you into their home with open arms and ensure you are comfortable and looked after throughout your stay. We stayed here whilst we visited Alton Towers which is a very short walk away! You can't get any closer!...

We had a problem with the reservation, so in the end we didn't get to spend the night at Trough the Ivy. However, the place is lovely and just in front of Alton Towers gates, wich is excellent if you're going to the theme park. Plus, the owners were exceedingly helpful and within minutes they found another suitable accomodation nearby....

We have been lucky to stay in Swallows Nest self catering accommodation within the premises. Very quiet and beautiful place maintained to a high standard. Despite the host's concerns regarding Swallows Nest not being suitable for small children we felt it was all we ever wanted. There were no problems whatsoever. There is Londis just 2 minutes driving down the...

This is a charming country B&B run by the most friendly and welcoming couple. The location couldn't be more ideal for a trip to the theme park, whereby you can simply walk to the gates and into the park. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated with an en suite. Breakfast is provided and delivered directly to your room in...

Currently staying here with my husband for 2 nights while we visit alton towers and the surrounding area. Arrived a little earlier than check in time yesterday but our room was ready and Carol welcomed us and showed us upstairs. She recommended places for us to visit that afternoon and where we could go for dinner. Had the cooked breakfast...

Searching for a nearby guest house close to Alton Towers we could not have asked for a better location. Ivy Trough House sits on the doorstep to the main entrance of Alton Towers a 5 minute walk to entry. The guest house as it should be referred to not a hotel as the service from the owners is personal and...
