Love was in the Air this Weekend in Alton!

We love a bit of romance so, we were delighted to discover that a couple of our guests had got engaged during their stay with us.

Here are the happy pair showing off their beautifully engagement ring. 

Congratulations to this lovely couple from everyone at The Malthouse.

Hope it's not long before they set a date, we love wedding cake!

Poppy and Smudge Enjoy Some Sunshine

Thought we'd share a couple of photos that we took this week of Poppy and Smudge
Both our pets are pretty laid back but our cat Smudge looks totally chilled out!

Alton has seen quite a bit of rain today.
We're hoping that the sun comes back out to play soon!

Macmillan Hero Stays at The Malthouse

Many of the visitors that stay at our B&B are tourists or folk working away from home.
This weekend though we have a true hero staying with us, here she is!

Today Amy is taking part in the Mighty Hike a 26 mile walk in the Peak District to raise funds for Macillan.
We wish Amy all the very best and are sure she will complete the challenge.

If you would like to make a donation visit enter "Galloping for Gwen" then follow the instructions.

Happy Birthday Smudge!

Our cat Smudge is 10 today. This morning one of his friends (our dog Poppy) joined him for a birthday treat of scrambled egg and sausage.

Here they are tucking in!

Alton Towers for Over 60's / Senior Citizens / OAP's / Grandparents / Concessions

Deciding on a title for this blog post has been difficult as you can see.
We welcome guests of all ages to stay at our B&B so, the last thing we want to do is cause offence to anyone!
However, we've just discovered that Alton Towers offer 50% off for the over 60's and wanted to share this information.
In the past plenty of our guests have told us that an older relation wanted to join them but decided not to come as the theme park didn't offer them a reduced rate so, we hope this information is useful.

Visit for more details.
