Lower Micklin Farm, Alton, Staffordshire, sleeps 2-16 in 6 bedrooms.

Located in the stunning Staffordshire countryside amidst 10 acres of grassland, Lower Micklin Farm is the perfect location for family gatherings and weekends away for up to 16 people and dining for up to 24.

Accommodation is in three warm and welcoming holiday cottages with seating outside and plenty of room to play in safety. Not only is Lower Micklin Farm simple to reach for all your guests, with easy access to the M1, M6, airports and train stations, it is just half a mile from pubs in Alton and Alton Towers is just 5 minutes away as well as being on the Staffordshire Way and on the doorstep of the Peak District. Our location guarantees that there is something for all ages including World of Wedgwood, cycle hire, walking, an award winning Farm Shop & Cafe just minutes away, the Potteries and National Trust properties.

Our group accommodation package includes exclusive use of our Pavilion too - a purpose built lodge for dining (up to 24), gathering, playing and relaxing. There is a surround sound DVD and projector system for films and slideshows which can also be easily plugged into your own devices. With a small kitchen attached, the pavilion is a convenient and easy way to cater for your group. We can also arrange for caterers to come in for the whole weekend or maybe just for a celebratory gathering.
