  • "We had a lovely stay at the old coach house."

    Everything you need for an enjoyable break. Lovely walks around the area and not too far to travel to get to towns if needed. Wendy, the owner, was lovely and very informative about places to visit and things to do. Would highly recommend this cottage for a great holiday.

  • "Wendy was lovely and met us when we arrived."

    Parking is right outside the cottage which is great for security / ease of parking & unloading, the cottage itself is gorgeously done and everything is super comfy and cosy. The sofa was unbelievably comfy and it’s great you can login to your own Netflix etc. 30-35 mins from Chester zoo, an hour from Conwy/ Llandudno, so we explored a lot and is in a great location. Thank you again

  • "A beautiful house with everything you could possibly need."

    The location is beautiful with a gorgeous view from the upstairs lounge! The house was immaculate with lovely extra touches such as the autumn themed decor. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you would need including plates, cups etc.. for young children which our 2 year old son particularly liked! The owner was incredibly welcoming and considering our stay was last minute, everything was in place ready for us when we arrived. It’s nice to know we have somewhere so close to where we live that we can recommend to friends and family when they visit. Thank you very much.
