In a far corner of the resort, just next to the Enchanted Forest, lies a small village inhabited by little fable folk and forest spirits. Although it’s rare to catch a sighting of them, they work day and night to keep everything neat and tidy using tiny windows and doors that secretly allow them access. The Enchanted Village promises the most magical stay at the resort with plenty of quirky touches and a great oak tree which is illuminated with hundreds of fairy lights every night.
Car parking for the Enchanted Village is sign posted as you drive into the entrance of Alton Towers Resort. Once parked, head over to the entrance to the main building signposted as the ‘Enchanted Village Welcome Desk’. Be aware that Luxury Treehouse guests will need to head to the Alton Towers Hotel in order to check-in, where they’ll then be escorted to their treehouse via golf buggy.
Check-in is from 3pm for Woodland Lodge guests and 2pm for Luxury Treehouse guests, although you can check in earlier if your room is ready. Check-out is at 10am, although the option of a later checkout is available at an additional charge. If you want to spend the day enjoying the resort’s attractions either prior to check-in or after check-out, the porters will be happy to hold onto any luggage you may have.
A standard hotel stay includes the bed and breakfast option, as well as a 9-hole round of Extraordinary Golf, however you can also add-on theme park tickets and entrance to the water park at the online rate. If you have an annual pass you can also receive discounts on your stay.
Village guests can enter the theme park through the Galactica Gates, which are sign-posted along the route to the main theme park entrance. Hotel guests also enjoy free car parking for the duration of their stay.
These are the Enchanted Village’s main accommodation, located in small clusters around children’s play areas throughout the village. They represent the cheaper end of the resort’s accommodation options.
Guests looking for the most luxurious stay at the resort can book themselves into one of the village’s five exclusive treehouses, which also includes a games console and private hot tub, as well as self-catering facilities.

In February 2014, initial plans for the Enchanted Village were submitted to the local council for approval, a year on from the withdrawn lodge accommodation proposal. Take a look at some of the key plans in our archive.
The resort were set to expand their range of accommodation in 2015 with the opening of small village inhabited by little fable folk and forest spirits, although it first needed to be constructed.
