The Chained Oak Farm B&B

When it comes to trips to Alton Towers Resort sometimes it's best to stay the night over, especially if you're expecting a busy day in the park or live miles away and it's no secret that Alton Towers has a vast selection of accommodation across the resort. From Splash Landings with its Caribbean vibe to the Stargazing Pods for a glamping alternative and of course the famous Alton Towers Hotel with its iconic ship and suite rooms. But sometimes staying onsite isn't a viable option due to either a steep price tag or perhaps you just want to have a bit of distance from the park. Luckily the village of Alton hosts a plethora of B&B’s and guest houses to suit your needs but none seem to match up to the Chained Oak Farm B&B in our opinion.

The Chained Oak Farm B&B sits nestled in the trees just on the opposite side of the road near the Oblivion breakrun and hosts 3 stable rooms, a huge family room and even an Air B&B Cabin that can be rented separate from the website and of course, as expected from the name, you can take a short walk down from the accommodation and you can visit something out of the parks history, that being the Chained Oak from the Hex legend and if you are feeling really brave you can venture down at night by torchlight. The ambience is truly creepy.

The B&B features a beautiful breakfast room overlooking the valley and a guest sitting room with sumptuous sofas and an open fire all for your use and its things like this that make The Chained Oak Farm B&B not feel like a bed and breakfast but rather like visiting family.

Each of the rooms is exceptionally clean and modern yet wonderfully cosy at the same time with some of the best showers we have ever used. Seriously the power of these showers is insane. Alongside your stay, you have the option to use a fantastic gas BBQ (For a £5.00 gas charge fee) and seating areas that have either a wood burner or fire pit for those long nights sitting out relaxing in the stillness of the Churnet Valley. But the shining glory of this fantastic establishment is the owner and hostess Liz Bradley, who we can admit is one of the main reasons we return to The Chained Oak Farm time and time again. Always welcoming with a warm smile and happy to help at any time during your stay, when we say staying here makes you feel like family it is Liz's efforts that make that happen. Liz is extremely approachable and it's clear that she has such enthusiasm in what she does and it shows. Liz is also responsible for the amazing free breakfast you will receive whilst staying, again another reason we look forward to staying so much, in fact, my mouth is watering now thinking of the bacon.

With rooms starting at £90 up to £140 a night The Chained Oak Farm is truly a hidden beauty of Alton whilst also being affordable, leaving more money to spend at the park in the day. Even if you don't feel like dining in the park Liz is happy to let you order food in and sit in the warm and comfy breakfast room and tuck in. It is also worth mentioning that if the weather turns when your heading to the park there is even umbrellas you can take with you, just remember to bring them back at the end of the day.

One final note is a view of Oblivion that you cant get from anywhere in the park. Just pop through the fence to the side of the stable rooms and keep walking forward and before long you will find Oblivion standing proud in the gap of the trees calling you to ride and if you’re lucky you might even hear Oblivion testing in the morning to get you warmed up for a day on the park. The Chained Oak Farm is honestly such a fantastic place to stay and we guarantee that once you visit you will understand why we come back again and again.
