Summer and Easter exchanges arranged. Large house in rural village of Alton in centre of England. Easy access to rail network to London, Manchester, Liverpool & more

Our house is located in a  lovely, quiet, position at the end of a short lane within the village of Alton.  We have a mixture of wonderful countryside nearby - the Peak District National Park is 20 minutes drive away - and access to Alton Towers theme park & waterpark less than a mile away. With excellent road and train connections we are a great base for a stay in the UK.
Our house is set on three levels with ample accommodation to suit up to 8 people.
We have three large bedrooms and one smaller bedroom on one floor and a further bedroom in the converted loft area which has its own shower room.  We have a large bathroom and an en-suite to the main bedroom on the first floor.
The large kitchen / dining room is a great room  for sitting round the table and talking through the days adventures..
We have wireless internet access throughout the house which you are welcome to use.  We also have Netflix and an XBOX if you run out of things to do outside!
We have a garden at the front of the house which is great for children to play in, with a football goal and a small climbing frame. At the side of our house is a decking area with barbecue.
