Visiting The Malthouse? What to Pack!

If your planning to visit our B&B or have already booked and are looking forward to your stay with us you might be wondering what to pack.  Everyones different, some guests arrive with hardly any luggage and other folk bring everything they own including the kitchen sink!

Here are items you should definitely consider bringing:
Changes of Clothes
Changes of Shoes (essential if the weather is unkind or you get wet on the water rides at Alton Towers!)
Waterproof Coat
Toiletries (don't forget your toothbrush!)
Swimwear & Towels for waterpark visits
Tickets (you'd be surprised how many people forget these!)
3S's - Shorts, Sunglasses & Sunscreen (just in case we're lucky enough to get a heatwave!)
3W's - Warm Winter Woollies (warm clothes, hat, scarf, gloves etc)
Last but not least your Teddy Bear!
Most of our guests are visiting Alton Towers and other local tourist attractions so casual clothes and comfy shoes are just the thing.  BUT some of our visitors are here to attend local weddings or formal events.  Ladies - if your packing your best dress don't forget your heels & hat!

June in Bloom at The Malthouse B&B

Alton like most places throughout the country has seen some pretty poor weather this year but now that we're well into June lets hope that the weather will take a turn for the better!  The rhododendrons in the garden at the front of our house are at their very best right now.  These pretty lilac bushes line most of our front lawn and as you can see they really do look a picture. 

During the summer much of our time is taken up looking after the guests who are visiting our B&B.  Whenever we have the chance we love to spend time outdoors and enjoy taking care of our garden.  Here are some peonies in the border near our front door.  We've been nurturing these plants for the past few years and are particularly pleased with these bright pink beauties this year.

Need a break?  Why not come and stay at our bed and breakfast in Alton to recharge your batteries!  
To check availability email enquiries@the-malthouse or telephone 01538 703273.

Flag Mad at The Malthouse!

We're really looking forward to the long bank holiday this weekend to celebrate Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee.   We hope that you enjoy the long weekend too!

As you can see from our flags and bunting we're very fond of Her Majesty and hope she continues the marvellous work she does for many years to come. 

Like many places in the country (and probably overseas) Alton has plenty of celebrations planned this weekend.  Hope your able to join in with something near you.  Have a great weekend!
