  • "Friendly welcome from owner."

    Very comfortable cottage. Lovely surroundings. Great base to explore Shropshire, Wales, castles and National Trust properties. We can recommend Ellesmere for the walks at lakes and canals. Good local shops for deli, butcher's, bakers at Oswestry and great wool shop! A real home from home.

  • "I enjoyed the cottage, it was traditional, even a little old-fashioned, but that leant it a homely air, it was like a home rather than a holiday cottage."

    It was comfortable, cosy and serene. The owners were friendly and supportive. It is in a rural location, which may not suit everyone, but was perfect for our group. I would happily return.

  • "Lovely cottage."

    Had everything we needed. Caroline was a lovely host and was there to greet us on arrival. Plenty of opportunity to take the dog for a walk without needing to drive anywhere first. Also plenty of space within the cottage and outside for the children to play.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    Up to usual Sykes standards. Lovely beds. Good well equipped kitchen. Great location on lovely estate. Loads of walks for both ourselves and the doggy!!! Very safe location. Nice helpful owners. Recommended. One small point. Our daft dog is hyper sensitive to any noise. The house is surrounded by cows, sheep etc which kept our pooch awake for 1st couple of days. All in all a great stay and we would happily stay again.

  • "Stable Cottage was really nice and the location was beautiful and so quiet."

    It was lovely and clean and the cake, milk etc were very welcome when we arrived. The grounds were extremely well kept and we had fun with family doubles on the tennis court and sitting by the fishing lake watching the sheep. It was well located to visit Wrexham and Chester and I am sure we will visit again.
