  • "Spotlessly clean and well equipped cottage."

    Fantastic location too. Only grumble is downstairs beds are a bit on the small side.

  • "What an amazing property the Parlour is!"

    The hosts Paul and Zuzana gave all the information needed for arrival. The property was immaculate, the beds really comfy, bathrooms modern and had all the amenities needed. The hosts have really thought of everything. All of the girls said how much they loved the property and we are just looking for an excuse to go back for another stay! Next time we want longer.

  • "Enjoyed a lovely week at the Parlour with our family including two grandchildren aged 2 and 4."

    Owners Paul and Zuzana were really helpful and supplied stairgate and high chair on request and dealt with queries right away. The outside space is perfect for bbq and the children loved the field with play equipment. Hot tub was very popular!! All in all the Parlour was perfect for us all.

  • "Highly recommend!"

    Lovely place! Just returned from a 2 night say at The Parlour with 6 family and friends. The parlour is beautiful, very clean, well equipped and the host Paul and Zuzana are really lovely. The house was a perfect space for us to celebrate my cousins 30th birthday, the hot tub is great and the Bluetooth speakers were very easy to connect and worked. (Unlike a lot of places I have visited before where the speakers didn’t work). The view from the hot tub and open plan dining/kitchen is beautiful and can be taken in whilst having a soak, enjoying a morning coffee or whilst dining at the large kitchen table. The mezzanine is a great space to spend that time to relax and unwind after a walk up Helsby hill or just to chill out, it is very cosy. The rooms are brilliant great sizes again well equipped with wardrobes or draws, (only complaint here is it would be handy to have a mirror in the upstairs bedrooms). The beds are very comfy and all 7 of us slept very well. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into the space to ensure the guests stay is perfect and works for all guest staying and offers space to socialise together or some time to sit alone reading a book. Whether you are looking for a weekend break with all adults or longer with your children I would highly recommend The Parlour.

  • "Our stay at The Parlour was nothing short of spectacular."

    Myself and 6 other friends stayed here for a 3 day staycation and it completely exceeded our already high expectations. The house was uniquely designed with an upstairs open plan view of the lower floor, The Parlour is absolutely stunning with a huge outside field with a spacious hot tub (which was cleaned daily), an incredibly comfortable bed, stunning living space with cosy woodburner and a fully equipped kitchen, not to mention the well cleaned bedrooms and bathrooms. The weather was cold during our stay but that just made The Parlour feel like more of a safe haven, with the log fire and underfloor heating and peacefulness of the gated location. The owners Paul and Zuzana have done the most incredible job with this hot tub holiday cottage and are both absolutely lovely, with frequent communication and bottle of Prosecco upon arrival. We were also granted a later check out as some of my friends trains were not until later in the day. There's plenty to entertain nearby but also have the options of board games/ surround sound speakers and multiple other activities, including a pub just across the road. We had an amazing stay, and we can't wait to return already!!

    We have stay in many UK let’s and this is superior. Excellent for Family visit and exploring the local area. Delamere forest and the Ice cream farm. Also excellent to explor Liverpool, Chester. The rail links from nearby Runcorn to Liverpool are excellent so you can always park and ride if you wanted a different day trip. Very pleased to find this gem. It would also be excellent for a friends meet up as both bathrooms are on Ground floor, one being an en-suite with bath and the other outside double Room is a toilet with shower. It is Worth being mindful of this if booking multiple families.
