What a beautiful place. Exactly like the pictures, romantic magical and like stepping back in time. Immaculate rooms and facilities, fresh flowers and complementary cakes, teas and coffee etc even the scattered magazines were right up to date and it's these small details that count and make it much more personal. Ian the owner made sure we had everything we... More

Only regret is only stayed one night. Will definitely return. The perfect place to celebrate a special occasion, a romantic hideaway. Ian is a fantastic host. The location is excellent - no need to drive all restaurants bars and shops in walking distance - highly recommend the Greek restaurant. Don't miss out - get booking!!

Ten minutes after walking through the door we felt so relaxed (that's after we... More

Stayed for one night in the Camelot suite as a post Christmas treat. Loved every minute. Service was great but not overbearing. Lovely location. Fabulous room. Really unusual place. Would highly recommend it for romantic break. A little haven.

This is our second visit to Wizards Thatch. We absolutely love staying here. We stayed in the Camelot Suite - it's beautifully decorated throughout. The suites are in a fantastic location. Handy for the centre of Alderley. We hope to stay again soon.
