About Gabrielle Lees
We lived here until 2011, and unable to sell it when we moved down south for work, we have now converted it to a holiday let. We love this house and come up as often as we can.

Gabbi’s home provided us with a perfect venue for my husbands 70th birthday. There was everything we needed and more for 8 adults and one child for being able to cook , eat, and celebrate together. Grown up kids had a hilarious time playing with one of the numerous games - bopit!!! and little one loved all the building toys. Great location too with a great community pub.
Great spot for Alton Towers
Had a lovely time, house was huge, right in the middle of all you could need (shop, pubs, Alton Towers), marked down on the cleanliness as it could do with a good dust and hoover but all the essentials such as kitchen, bathrooms and beddings were spotless!! Will be back for sure!!
A quirky treasure.
My family visited so we could all be together to my parents’ 70th birthdays and we could not have been happier. The house was simply wonderful - unusual and beautiful, everything you need, but so different that it wasn’t just like being at home. There was something for everyone, from the multitude of toys, the music room and the four poster bed to our favourite room of the house, the conservatory. Gabbi was so helpful - including recommendations for fantastic places to eat and the rise-at-home chocolate croissants - and the area was simply beautiful. We arrived home yesterday and I haven’t stopped raving about it.
A great family holiday.
The communication before we arrived and while we was there was fantastic, I asked a few questions before our stay and The response was rapid. The house is lovely, definitely quirky and loads of toys for the kids to play with, I honestly can’t recommend this house enough, you made our stay in Alton a pleasure thank you.
We had a great time staying at the house which surpassed my expectations. The bedrooms are all lovely, the kitchen is great and the garden is gorgeous. There are some lovely walks and a pub over the road, just up the street and the Alton Bridge just down the hill. The food there is excellent. We will definitely stay again when we’re in the area.
Lovely quirky house.
Great location for Alton Towers, easy parking on doorstep and pub right across the street. Ideal for large family groups like ours! All bed linen, toilets and floors spotlessly clean.
