  • Mrs Boyle

    “The house is old and it was very interesting to see how it’s been developed from its Tudor roots via Georgian and Victorian alterations over the years.”


    All of the bedrooms are a good size, and the bathrooms are well appointed with up to date power showers etc. The larger drawing room has lots of seating for big get togethers, and we loved the large kitchen diner which also has the bonus of comfy seating at one end so it’s very sociable. Everything was very clean and comfortable, and we were lucky enough to have warm sunny weather so it was lovely to relax in the garden. Sam, the owner was extremely helpful and friendly. She went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy, was very flexible on check in and check out times, and when we asked for recommendations for takeaways, came up with some excellent ones (it was that period of semi lockdown when only outside dining was available and we preferred to sit in the comfort of the Manor to eat). Highly recommended and we will be back another time.

The property

Chester 3 miles.This outstanding, country home is set on a private cobbled courtyard in the village of Mickle Trafford, less than 3 miles from Chester City centre.This stunning period property oozes character and quality in its fixtures and fittings, having been carefully upgraded over many years by its existing owner and is perfect for those wishing to celebrate a special occasion.

As you enter through the porch you arrive in an incredibly welcoming entrance hall, with gas feature coal fire set in a traditional inglenook hearth, sided by church pews and comfy armchairs where you can relax and socialise with passing guests.

The main sitting room retains a feeling of informal grandeur, with elegant seating in the main area and informal cushioned window seats in the large bay window overlooking the pretty garden.

A second snug reception room with garden doors leads through to the kitchen and dining area with breakfast counter and cosy dining table.

A former servant's staircase leads up to the Cottage room, a romantic double bedroom with private balcony and en-suite bathroom.

The main oak staircase winds up to three more bedrooms; the Balcony room with balcony and super king-size double bed with stylish en-suite facilities featuring a walk- in shower, the State room with an impressive emperor double bed, exposed oak wall frame and beams and master en-suite with double-ended bath, walk-in shower, bidet and twin basins, and the Green room which is equally well-furnished with a super king-size double bed with an en-suite bathroom and seating area.

A second floor staircase leads you to the stylish and characterful Top room, furnished in an elegant 1950s style, and featuring a super king-size double bed and en-suite facilities.

A summerhouse across the garden provides a tranquil heated retreat, allowing you to look back and admire the house and garden, and of course a property of this standard would not be complete with a bubbling hot tub to slip into for a well- earned pamper.

Chester is home to excellent shopping and there are plenty of pubs and restaurants to choose from.

Why not pay a visit to Chester Cathedral or perhaps take a boat trip along the beautiful River Dee and for animal and nature lovers no trip to Chester would be complete without a visit to Chester Zoo or the nearby Blue Planet Aquarium.

This superb cottage will provide a truly memorable holiday for anyone lucky enough to stay in this fantastic holiday home.

About the location


Liverpool 17 miles; Manchester 36 miles.

Chester has quite rightly been described as 'the jewel of the North-West of England'. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the city is that within a very small area there is evidence of every period of history - from the old walls and amphitheatre of Roman times, through medieval churches, Elizabethan timber-framed townhouses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The city has much to offer the tourist, including excellent shopping in and around the famous Tudor 'Rows' and lovely walks along the Roman Walls, beside the River Dee and through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Explore Chester's beautiful medieval cathedral, visit Chester Racecourse or spend a day at the world renowned Chester Zoo. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire and the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, are all within easy touring distance, whilst frequent rail services make Liverpool, Manchester and the North Wales coast readily accessible.
