Your Chance to Win An Overnight Stay for Two with Breakfast at Wizards Thatch

Wizards Thatch in the heart of Alderley Edge has been described as “…surely England’s most romantic place to stay.”


Looking spookily like it has just jumped out of the pages of a Harry Potter novel, Wizards Thatch is pure nostalgia where you can totally relax and let the centuries old aura cast its spell on you.

It is situated less than a minute’s walk from Alderley’s famous street of restaurants and bars that adorn this celebrity hotspot.

With medieval sounding suites, Camelot, Merlin and The Wizardry – guests are treated to pure luxury in fairy tale surroundings.

All three suites are self-contained – having four poster beds draped in red and gold tapestries – with Camelot and The Wizardry boasting seven footers!

This 400-year-old haunt is run by owner Ian Lambert and assisted by his partner Ali. Together they have created a 5-star luxury escape combining the ancient with every modern convenience, making your stay a truly unique experience – ” A little piece of heaven on earth.” They say!

” Romance is always in the air at Wizards Thatch” says Ian

Owners, Ian and Ali. Owners, Ian and Ali.

Honeymoons and romantic breaks make up most of our bookings. Guests often phone me up to say that they are going to propose to their loved one here, so we make sure their stay becomes an experience of a lifetime.”

The breakfast is taken at The Village Cafe – a true local favourite – known for its excellent menu, friendly staff and great atmosphere.

Wizards Thatch is totally covered in old roses and vines with old pear and apple trees that hug it so tightly that one cannot believe that behind this camouflage lies 5-star luxury accommodation for those who seek it.

It is a favourite for those in the know – so much so that International rock stars, famous actors and actresses, renowned writers, premiership footballers, Fleet Street journalists and even a Government Minister have all come to Alderley Edge to stay at Wizards Thatch. Most names are a closely guarded secret!

This Alderley Edge boutique accommodation has recently been given one of the top awards in the travel world following over 600 excellent TripAdvisor reviews. It has been installed into TripAdvisor’s Hall of Fame as one of the globe’s top traveller’s hotspots.

Wizards Thatch has been the subject of scrutiny from none other than The Times Newspaper’s Mystery Guest! His mission is to seek out the real truth behind Britain’s accommodation. After his night’s stay in The Merlin Suite he gave the establishment 9.5 out of ten for the room – one of the highest ratings ever recorded.

His verdict – ” It was cosy, spotless and full of intrigue. The only thing that rankles is that there is no apostrophe in Wizards Thatch!”

At the top of the hill from Wizards Thatch is the beautiful National Trust countryside with its Wizard Inn whose origins go back to the 13th Century.

The inn was the childhood home to Ian – his garden the woods – and believe it or not he was born on Halloween – making him a true Wizard of Alderley!
