The Tuesday market that takes over the High Street is not to be missed. As well as the markets, Alton has a variety of shops and eateries to choose from. There is a rich history worth discovering here too. However, if you wish to venture further afield, the beautiful South Downs is a wonderful place to go. Whether you explore by foot, or on two wheels this is a charming place to relax. Take a picnic for a full day out, and enjoy lunch with a view.

"It suited our needs perfectly.COMFORT was almost excellent, we had 8/9/10 people over the course of the week and we did not feel crushed at any stage. A King-size bed was advertised, but there did not appear to be one. There was no walk in shower on the ground floor (2 baths, 1 with a shower over), which would have made more sense for older people. Our 80 year grandmother did manage to make it upstairs to use the walk in shower on the first floor, though, but worth thinking about if you have anyone with access issues.EQUIPMENT brought the score down a little as the fridge door was missing the bottle holder part (where you would put your milk) and one shelf, so we had to be quite creative on storing food for 9 people for a week. We used our plug in cold boxes for extra space for bottles. The toaster was a bit hit and miss and the kitchen tongs needed replacing. The knives were very blunt and we had to sharpen them all (sharpener was provided). Knives should really have had separate storage as the cooking utensil drawer was very cluttered, so a bit dangerous getting things in and out. The were lots of huge knives, but only one small "sharp" one. There were no mixing basins, but a huge number of pans and oven dishes of various shapes and sizes. There was no plastic chopping boards for meat, fish or onions. They were all wooden so had to be scrubbed in the sink. There were no oven gloves as such, just padded squares which were quite difficult to use.CLEANLINESS - generally this was OK, but the curtain in one of the upstairs bedrooms gathered dead insects, because of the way it is hung. When we moved this on our arrival all of the insects fell on the floor and had to be vacuumed up. This is a working farm with a horse being stabled next door so there are LOTS OF FLIES. Fly spray is provided, but we bought fly papers in the end which worked really well. We did have to vacuum dead flies from the window sills twice whilst we were there. LOCATION was great for us as we needed to easily get to Guildford and Portsmouth over the course of the week. There are loads of things to do in the vicinity. Excellent for walking.LOCAL AMENTIES - the local village store has the basics and are very obliging (opened up and sold us butter after hours as she was still in the shop when we turned up rather late and hopeful!). Plenty of shops 6 miles away in Alton. Only use Alton Fish and Chips in Normandy Street if you are desperate! To be fair the fish a chips would probably have been OK, as it was all freshly cooked, but we then had to wait while he cooked onion rings he had forgotten and then again when he realised he had not done the scampi! They also ran out of change and had two attempts before they came back with some from neighbours (it was a little reminiscent of Julie Walters acting out the elderly waitress serving soup). Fortunately we have a good sense of humour!VALUE FOR MONEY - we were happy with what we paid. There is not loads of accommodation available to suit a big family, so it is difficult to compare. Our French friends thought it was very good value (possible due to the exchange rates at present!)."

"A weeks stay in this amazing gem of a cottage was such a lovely experience. Great information and instructions given to us beforehand from the owners and a wealth of information on the village and the area is available in the cottage. Lovely welcome pack on arrival, everything we needed to start our week. It was certainly home from home. Instructions for all the electrical equipment and all mod cons are provided. This cottage is very comfortable and very welcoming. Before we arrived we had concerns about parking but it really was never a problem, just follow the instructions given and it is easy. Alton is a lovely little village, Londis is a god send, as we found the pubs food availability hit and miss, maybe because it was 'out of season?' nowhere serves food on a Monday and The Royal Oak is now closed, however The Bulls Head is definitely worth a visit and is literally 2 mins walk away, great food, good variety of ales and ciders. There are plenty of pubs to drive to and the Lovely Denstone Garden Centre just a few miles away, great food served there. The cottage is located on the road to Alton Towers, approx 1 mile away, we visited twice. Lots of local walks, The Ramblers Retreat is well worth a look, open Tues-Sun 10-00 - 4:00 This cottage was a delight to stay in and certainly has everything you need for a great holiday. Many Thanks to the owners for making our stay so special."

"We stayed here on the 5th Feb for 2 nights for my boyfriends birthday with some of his family. The cottage is absolutely beautiful and you immediately feel at home. The place was absolutely spotless and the housekeeper had even left us a little treat of red wine and a packet of lovely biscuits. The cottage in in the middle of Alton, there are lovely pubs close by serving great food. The closest pub The Bulls Head has recently closed down. Everyone in the village were very friendly and happy to point us in the right direction as we didn't really know the area. We visited Ashbourne on Saturday and also The Heights of Abraham which were close by and I would recommend. The cottage had plently of plates, glasses and cutlery if needed. There were 6 of us staying at the cottage, there are 6 double beds, and 2 singles. One thing to mention is one of the bedrooms (the loft) you have to walk through the second bedroom to get to it so may accidently wake people up during the night of you need to go the bathroom. This wasn't really a problem for us. I would definitely recommend this cottage to others and thank you so much to the housekeeper and owner for making our weekend :)"

"Sadly, we were disappointed with Yew Tree Cottage. Whilst there were lovely walks from the cottage that took us by some lovely, well kept homes we felt that Yew Tree did not live up to others in the vicinity. We would not have described the setting as peaceful due to the constant road noise outside and a lively family at the rear of the property. Our stay was in early June but owing to shade from the massive trees surrounding the garden we lost the sun by 6.30 pm each evening. However, on the plus side our dog was secure in the rear garden and enjoyed many an adventure in the undergrowth there.Inside, I spent a long time cleaning black and orange mould off the bathroom wall tiles and shower screen before we felt comfortable about using the shower. The microwave also received a de-greasing on the outside and I cleaned the kitchen sockets and half of the radio! Looking down the sides of the fridge I wondered if the white goods had ever been pulled out for cleaning purposes, lampshades had a thick covering of greasy dust. The bed was comfortable and we slept well but due to what we felt were grimy conditions we went home a day early."

"The cottage was extremely well equipped with more than enough Cutlery and crockery. There were lots of condiments, cleaning products etc that we could use from previous holiday makers. With a few changes this cottage would rate as excellent. The owner came to greet us soon after we arrived with a bag of charcoal and a bottle of wine. She was very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. There was a wicker box full of leaflets collected by previous guests so we were able to browse through and plan where we were going to visit during our week there. We had taken two dogs and there were some beautiful walks in the fields and woods around the cottage. We also found that all the pubs/ restaurants we visited were extremely dog friendly with plenty of water and treats for them. The Hawley Moose in Hawley is definitely worth a visit or two with an extensive menu of fabulous food."
