Are you cold and looking forward to Spring arriving with hopefully some better weather?

Why not give yourself something to really look forward to and book a short break with us at The Malthouse in Alton. There are lots of things to do in this part of north Staffordshire. You might just want to relax and enjoy the peace of the fabulous countryside. We are located in a rural area know as the Staffordshire Moorlands and the stunning Derbyshire Peak District is just a short drive away.

Alternatively there are many different tourist attractions nearby to us. Why not visit one of the many pottery museums or pottery factory shops in Stoke-on-Trent. Spend a day or two at Trentham there are shops, a monkey forrest , garden centre, lovely walks and lots more. The country estate of Chatsworth house is breathtaking and well worth a visit. For thrill seekers there is of Course Alton Towers Theme Park on our doorstep and Drayton Manor Theme Park just an hour away.
