“Very pleasant weekend break.”
Set in a stunning landscape, the Mousehole B&B provided a perfect base for our weekend break at Alton Towers for 2 adults and 2 teenagers.
The rooms are quaint and cosy with all that we needed - TV, kettle and en suite. The morning breakfast was a treat! Full English with cereals and fresh fruit, juices and a cafetiere. This is a B&B that we recommend.
