Welcome to Chained Oak Farm Accommodation
Chained Oak Farm is set in its own grounds of 24 acres of woodland.
The house overlooks the churnet valley; the views are magnificent
designated as 'an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty'.
The woodlands now belonging to Chained Oak Farm were formally owned by Alton
Towers, the former seat of the Earl of Shrewsbury. The track through the
wood is called Barbary Gutter. This was used by the Earl as a private road
to Saint Giles Church. Both the church and Alton Towers were designed by Pugin.
This track passes the "Chained Oak" tree, the very tree the Earl became
obsessed with in 1830. The ride called Hex at Alton Towers tells the story of this legend
with fantastic effects.
Chained Oak farm is located directly opposite Alton Towers theme park. It is a short 10
minute walk from the farm to the main ticket booth. The short distance eliminates any traffic
problems and car park fees.
Our converted stable block is now ready for bookings. This brand new facility
includes double, twin and family rooms all with en-suite and access to a covered BBQ veranda.

If you enjoy walking, horse riding and mountain biking the variety is great and challenging, taking you
through old woodlands, unchanged pasture land or high up onto the Weaver Hills where you will rewarded with views
looking across Derbyshire and the Peak District, the Staffordshire Moorlands and Cheshire plains.
Chained Oak Farm is also the ideal location for a winter break. The unspoilt picturesque village of
Alton provides breathtaking winter vistas.
Owners, Steve and Liz Bradley, will be there to take care of you during your stay and provide you with any information
you may require.
