Alton Towers Free Entry Child Voucher with Birds Eye

If you're coming to stay at our B&B and plan to visit Alton Towers you might like to know about a Free Entry Child Voucher that we found on a pack of Birds Eye Peas.

Most of the money off coupons we come across for Alton Towers are 2 for 1 for adult tickets so, it's good to see something that's a bit different!

This voucher is valid until the end of the year and gives one child free entry to the theme park with a full priced adult ticket purchased at the park entrance.  As with all offers there are some restrictions (including dates over Halloween etc) so we suggest that terms and conditions are checked carefully  to avoid disappointment. 

If you would like a voucher check out packs of Bird Eye Peas in your local shops OR give us a call, if we have a voucher we are always glad to pass it on to our guests!

Thanks for the Card

Wanted to share with you this beautiful card that arrived in our post a few days ago. 
The photo of the card doesn't do the artwork justice, the blue glitter is dazzling - sunglasses needed!

Getting such a lovely surprise in the post really made our day!

Thank you for the card Belle.  Glad you both enjoyed your stay.  Looking forward to your next visit.

Rain Changes to Spring Sunshine in Alton

It's been a day of two halves in Alton.  Light rain and dull skies this morning followed by a dry afternoon that ended in Spring Sunshine.  A lovely finish to the day, perfect!

Here are a couple of photos that we took in our front garden this week while we enjoyed the sun.
The first is of Grape Hyacinth (a favourite of ours) beautiful colours and a sign of Spring arriving.  The second is white heather, if you look carefully you can see a honey bee busy at work.

Hope you're enjoying Spring wherever you are!
