The Enchanted Village, a new hotel at the Alton Towers resort and amusement park in Staffordshire, England might have a familiar "ring" to it for fans of the Lord of the Rings. It's designed to reflect the visual sense of the movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth fantasies—outside. Inside, the accommodations are up-to-date, some with luxury features.
Rates run from around $50/night for shared B&B accommodations to much higher for luxury "tree houses" with private hot tubs. MORE
