    Would definitely recommend booking this gem of a holiday cottage. Caroline couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful. Our month’s stay was just what we needed. Would definitely book again.

    The owner visited us to see whether we had any queries or problems which we didn't. Peacefull and quiet, a great place to stay with plenty of places around to visit.

  • "A great getaway for peace and quiet."

    The owner was very helpful and approachable. Parking seemed to be a slight issue in one review I read but was not at all a problem for us. We parked two cars safely off the road in front of the lodge. The Lodge was warm and welcoming and we had a very relaxing break.

  • "Owners were very friendly & helpful."

    The setting is lovely & made such a refreshing change for 'Townies'. Easy to visit places lime Chester & the recreated roman villa at Wroxeter. A very short drive into Wales for Lake Vyrnwy & Bala. For us this was ideal. Good facilities including wi-fi. Parking was the only downside but didn't really cause any issues as there is a large 'splay' onto the main house driveway so tucked the car there at night off the road,

Placed excellently for touring North Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire, a group of friends, couples or a family could use this as their welcoming base.

The kitchen in The Lodge is well-appointed, boasting a bright and fresh spot to rustle up each meal as it provides all of the necessary appliances you could need.

Spend your downtime in the living/dining room, a soothing and neutral room with a stunning redbrick open fire and a dining table set for four looking out over the nearby countryside.

Catch your rest in one of the two splendid, cream-coloured bedrooms, both served by an equally immaculate family bathroom with stylish tiling.

Enjoy splendid rural views from the comfort of the garden, a well-kept lawn and a courtyard promise an afternoon of scenic relaxation.

Overton-on-Dee is just a small journey away, offering a small assortment of shops and pubs and sits in a fine location for touring the area's finest assets.
