    “We stayed here for 4 nights and it was absolutely perfect!”

    The location was brilliant, so close to the city centre, Cheshire Oaks, the zoo, etc, but also far enough away to feel like a little country retreat. The cottage itself was beautiful, bed extremely comfortable and the hot tub was lovely. I would definitely recommend this place and we will be back ourselves. Thank you very much to the hosts for such a wonderful stay

Lower Farm Holiday Cottages

Resting in the peaceful hamlet of Picton are the four charming terraced dwellings of Lower Farm Holiday Cottages. Suitable to sleep up to twelve people, they provide captivating accommodation for a family gathering or getaway with friends, ideal for exploring both the countryside and the historic excitement of Cheshire. Each of the properties boasts an open-plan living space with high ceilings and traditional features, making great spots to gather in individual groups for some quiet family time or to come together to celebrate a wonderful holiday. Two of the properties also benefit from hot tubs, so you can soak in your scenery from the relaxing waters, or choose to spend some time on the lawned area with a picnic in the summer months when you're not exploring the local delicacies of the area. With exposed brick walls, beams and wooden furnishings, each of the properties holds its own rustic charm amongst contemporary fixtures and features to assist you in your self-catering requirements. Wander up the steps to the owner's Orchard where you can relax in the sun and when in season sample the fruit or take some back home with you. Later on do some star gazing at night, but make sure to keep an eye out for the Barn Owls, as there are several mating pairs in the area. Within close reach by car is the Roman city of Chester well known for being one of the best preserved walled cities in Britain; complete the circuit of the Walls, wander along the Rows with their black and white timbered galleries, visit the historic Amphitheatre, or have a classic day out at Chester Races. A wide range of attractions are ideally situated near these lovely dwellings including Chester Zoo, one of the top attractions and most visited zoo in the UK, Blue Planet Aquarium show-casing Europe’s largest collection of sharks through their 71 metre underwater tunnel, or indulge in some shopping at Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet and Coliseum Leisure Park, where you can pick up some bargains and then catch a film at the cinema after or maybe a game of ten-pin bowling. Lower Farm Holiday Cottages provide the best of both the tranquil countryside and bustling city life, perfect for your retreat to this area of Cheshire.

The property

Set in the Cheshire countryside in Picton, not far from the homely suburb of Upton-by-Chester is this delightful ground-floor cottage, The Shippon.

Set between its neighbours on either side, it is a perfect spot for a country getaway with your loved ones and friends.

Begin by coming into the social hub of the property, the open-plan living space, head left and sink into the corner sofa before the Smart TV, a great spot to wind down in at the end of the day.

Move across to the kitchen where you'll be preparing picnics for walks out in nearby nature, or cooking an evening meal for the group to be served up on the wooden dining table.

Use this space for gathering round to plan the rest of your trip, or spread out with a board game.

To either side of the living space are the two super-king-size bedrooms, both benefiting from en-suite bathrooms and zip/link beds, so you can request for them to be twin rooms instead, great for accommodating different party setups.

Expect to find exposed brick walls and wooden ceiling beams throughout, as well as bespoke features like the rope light fitting feature.

Relax out in the hot tub in the front enclosed courtyard, it can't get better that this!

Enjoy the surrounding countryside for walks, or take a trip into the Roman city of Chester for some sightseeing.

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.
