Things to do
Something for everyone
Alton Towers, Peak District and other days out
Many of our guests initially find us while looking for somewhere to stay near to Alton Towers, just two miles from Lower Micklin. However, it doesn’t take long to realise that there is much more to see and do in the local area from walking and cycling in the beautiful Churnet Valley and Peak District to family days out at the Peak Wildlife Park, Uttoxeter Race Course and more.
Places to eat and drink
You will be spoilt for choice when it comes to eating locally. The village of Alton has four pubs all serving food ranging from traditional pub fare to Pizzas and Thai. The award winning Denstone Hall Farm Shop and Cafe is only a mile away whilst a short drive will take you to the Duncombe Arms gastropub or eateries in the towns of Uttoxeter or Ashbourne.
If you don’t fancy moving, plenty of local take-aways will deliver to Lower Micklin.
Local Towns and Villages
The local villages of Alton and Denstone can cater for your everyday needs with a general store, post office and farmshop.
Larger shops can be found in the towns of Uttoxeter, or Ashbourne, while a trip to shopping centres in Derby or the Retail Shopping Village at Trentham Gardens in Stoke will provide more serious retail therapy.
Outdoors & Peak District
With famous locations like Dovedale Stepping Stones, The Roaches, Bakewell etc within a short drive, you may be enticed to leave the local area to engage in your preferred outdoor activity. However, you do not need to travel that far to experience the glorious scenery of the Staffordshire Moorlands right on our doorstep. A public footpath runs through Lower Micklin which will take you onto the Staffordshire Way and the Churnet Valley Trail for walking, cycling, rock climbing, horse riding … or just to visit the serene Ramblers Retreat tea rooms in Dimmingsdale for tea and cake.

Meet the animals
Alpacas, hens, guinea pigs…
Lower Micklin is set in the glorious Staffordshire countryside where you are surrounded by wildlife and domesticated animals. Meet Mortimer, Feast and Eton; our very friendly and inquisitive alpacas who will keep a watchful eye on you at all times. Oscar, the dog, is always ready to play fetch and will keep children entertained for hours chasing balls. The guinea pigs provide more relaxing entertainment while the hens roam freely and even produce the occasional egg.
In the sky you may see a variety of birds including red kites and owls along with hot air balloons and paragliders over the Weaver HIlls.
Centrally located with 10 acres of free to roam private farmland in beautiful rolling Staffordshire countryside. Just a 20 minute leisurely stroll to pretty villages and local pubs.
