Cottage is absolutely spot on, well equipped for self catering and extremely comfortable. The owners were on hand if needed and were lovely and really helpful. The bedrooms are great and the en suite bathrooms are ideal especially if there were two or three couples staying there! Had a fantastic time and hope to visit again someday.

The cottage is lovely, 3 double bedrooms with patio doors from each room and all are en suite. Ideal location, secure garden for pets or children. Beautiful area with lots of interesting walks and bird life. Cake, milk and flowers, dog bowls, bed and towel provided, also.

We had a wonderful time staying in this cottage and were only 20 minutes away from any of the attractions and the town. With the enclosed garden the kids were safe and happy running round and our dog was also safe to play outside. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and would defiantly recommend a stay there.

A lovely comfortable lodge in a fab setting for exploring. Everywhere we wanted to go was close by (max 30 min drive to zoo/aquarium). Was reassuring to know that our little boy could play out in the garden and be safe, which is one of the main reasons we booked this lodge. Fresh flowers, milk and lemon cake on arrival were a nice treat too. Would Read moredefinitely recommend!! Hide

The lodge was spacious and well equiped. The bedrooms were all a good size and with en suite facilities. The setting was very rural but within easy access to Tarporley and Chester. We hope to return for another stay.

Fabulous cottage, Catherine the owner was so helpful and friendly. Location was a bit out of the way but if you don't mind travelling its not a problem. Its situated on a working farm with cow sheds and barns around it but to be honest the noise was barely noticable. Would recommend.

The lodge is perfect, all ground level with lovely clean, comfortable bedrooms and all en-suite shower/bathrooms. Bright and airy lounge to settle down for the evening in. Well maintained, fully enclosed garden for our dog to play in.

We had a brilliant time staying in this lovely cottage. It's really smart with comfy beds and the enclosed garden was perfect for our toddler. It's a lovely quiet location and we enjoyed strolling on the farm and saying hello to the horses. A great place to stay for visiting Chester Zoo.

Lovely helpful hosts who do their best to give you a good holiday. Great for horse lovers as you are surrounded by horsey activity but left alone to have your own holiday.

Beautiful property, in a beautiful location. I am a wheelchair user that can only walk a short distance with two crutches. I found the lodge very accessible and took my own shower stool.
