  • "This a very comfortable cottage and much larger than we expected."

    It is in a great position being down a long quiet country lane and yet close to the attractions that Chester has to offer. The owners were very helpful and on site if we needed anything. The flowers and milk on arrival were a nice touch. We would definitely recommend it. The kitchen is spacious and has everything you would need to cook for a family but the local pub is just down the lane and is very welcoming.!

  • "A deceptively large cottage ideally placed to explore Chester and the surrounding area."

    Great facilities with the owners on hand if you need them. The pictures dont do the cottage justice - plenty of room for our family of 4 for a week's stay. Definitely one to return to

  • "The property is really nicely presented and seems to have had a recent refresh."

    Rooms are spacious with lots of storage. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need, including dishwasher tablets and washing capsules. We cooked ourselves an entire Sunday roast and had everything we needed. Beds comfy with nice thick duvets. Kids were a bit disappointed by the lack of Netflix etc but learnt to watch 'real' TV :). A lovely location to explore the North Wales beaches, Chester Zoo, and the Wirral. A local shop and two friendly pubs in walking distance (but take a torch). We found some lovely dog walks in local nature reserves and Mandy let us wash down the muddy pooches in the old dairy. We had three adults and two kids so had to negotiate around the one bathroom. One recommendation would be a lock on the bathroom door. Thank you, a lovely holiday xx.

  • "Our original cottage was cancelled so we were grateful to be able to book this house over half term."

    The owner was welcoming on arrival, and let us know about some local amenities for our small children. The bungalow is on farm on a country road and was peaceful. It is not far from main roads. The house was clean. I hope to be constructive in mentioning that I have stayed in a number of Sykes cottages and I felt that this house, in this price bracket, would benefit from: a king/super king instead of a double in the largest bedroom. The mattress felt raised in the middle so that you were rolling off. The bed was also squeaky. A larger fridge. The under counter fridge is rather small if you planned to cook your own meals. An indoor clothes airer. There is a rotary in the garden which needs more pegs. I also felt that outside furniture and a BBQ, in a screened off area of the garden would greatly add to the amenity. The garden is open to the shared drive. Overall I would recommend this location.

  • "Very spacious accommodation and, although in a very rural setting, just 10 mins from Chester Park and Ride terminal and 10 mins from the excellent Broughton Retail Park."

    A small shop and two pubs are within walking distance. The property is owned by an extremely nice couple, Les and Mandy, who were very helpful. They even provided a Christmas tree during our stay and fitted lights around the outside of the cottage. It was a pleasure spending time at this accommodation.

The property

Bring the family along for an unforgettable experience at this delightful bungalow, a welcome base for pets and small children.

Sandmartins is nestled within Higher Kinnerton village, benefiting from far-reaching countryside views of the heavenly Flintshire county.

The property is based on a tranquil country road where a shared driveway brings you to the cottage, and a lush garden lawn wraps around the bungalow with the rear garden holding a lovely picnic bench for outdoor dining, along with a handy clothes airer, and a covered fish pond.

Spend a relaxing Sunday evening cooking up a homemade meal in the spacious kitchen/diner, equipped with top-notch amenities and a generous dining table providing room for all the family, there's also a highchair available in the porch area for a little one.

Cuddle up in front of the open fire on a cold winter's night in the sitting room, whilst the family watch a Christmas film with a tasty hot chocolate on the Smart TV from the comfort of one of the sofas or armchairs.

Three nicely decorated bedrooms await you and your loved ones; the double room boasts an abundance of natural light from the windows, the twin benefits from a built-in wardrobe, while the single room has plenty of hanging space.

Choose between a soothing bubble bath with a good book and glass of wine, or a refreshing shower in the family bathroom, a place for all the family to prepare for a day of fun activities.

This beautiful abode is nestled within 65 acres of stunning farmland, with the owner's farmhouse resting next door and the working farm being a good distance away.

A stroll down the peaceful country roads will take you to a convenience store where you can stock up on snacks and essentials, and two country pubs for you to sample the local ales.

Take a gentle stroll through Grosvenor Park and along the River Dee, and pick an ideal spot for a picnic with the family. Many a fun-filled day out can be had at the Racecourse or Chester Zoo. The Snowdonia National Park and Welsh coastal towns of Colwyn Bay and Llandudno are within easy reach along the A494 and the A5 roads, with plenty of outdoors activities and beach walks waiting when you arrive.
