Book with Culture Trip to stay near CBeebies Land, at England’s Alton Towers theme park outside Stoke-on-Trent, in a hotel that’s suitable for the whole family – from Tinky Winky to Po.

Know your Captain Barnacles from your Igglepiggle? Love to learn some life lessons from Charlie & Lola? Overjoyed that Postman Pat still does the rounds? Then taking your little ones to CBeebies Land in Alton Towers is an absolute must when visiting the Midlands. Just outside the Stoke-on-Trent area, CBeebies Land has a superb range of accommodation nearby, so we selected the best hotels to book on Culture Trip.

1. Quarry Walk Park

Cabin, Lodge

A brilliant and slightly off-grid option, Quarry Walk Park is the ideal setting for putting the iPads away and enjoying nature. Set in a super safe private woodland in the property’s 46-acre (18.6ha) land, you can ramble to your heart’s content before returning to one of the log cabins or lodges, which are available in a great range of sizes to suit all families. Every log cabin and lodge comes with its own hot tub, perhaps best enjoyed after the kids have gone to bed.

2. Bentley Brook Inn
