  • "Very comfortable, fully equipped cottage."

    Ideally located for exploring Cheshire and North Wales. Hosts are very friendly but not intrusive. Nearby Tarporley provides everything you need - shops, pubs and restaurants.

  • "We had a great week away at Well View Cottage."

    It’s a great spot for a couple, or in our case a family with two younger children (6 and 11). The kids loved their upstairs bedroom area as well as the lovely garden. There’s plenty to do in the local area and the owners were really friendly and welcoming, being on hand to help with anything needed.

    The property was great and the surrounding was so peaceful, just what we needed! Everything was clean, and we had everything we needed for a long weekend. My son loved the cottage and did not want to leave. We will be booking again. My only wish is for a second adult bedroom so I could bring my daughter and husband! Thank you for everything. All the best x

  • "The cottage is very modern clean and comfortable."

    Very nice spacious rooms, lots of equipment, kitchen utensils, towels and toiletries. We really appreciated the little touches like welcome bottle of wine, biscuits and sweets. Thanks very much for lending us space in the freezer. The TV could perhaps be mounted on a movable bracket so it can be positioned facing seating areas. Location is lovely and peaceful and great for getting out for shopping, bars and restaurants. Very handy being so close to buses to local towns. Thanks very much to David and Amanda for the hospitality. Lovely, friendly hosts who are genuinely interested in their guests having a great stay.

The location was perfect, the good wifi let us do some home-office work, the facilities were all their, even washing machine and dryer, and the lovely views and big garden let our kids run around and enjoy themselves and see the llamas in the field at the back.

  • "Mixed feelings about this cottage."

    It is well placed for visiting the local area and in a quiet location. The outside space is lovely and on a sunny evening you can enjoy the peaceful surroundings. However I feel the cleanliness could be improved, especially considering what we have learned from COVID. I am not a clean freak by any stretch of the imagination but for my own peace of mind found the need to clean work surfaces, kitchen cupboard handles, light switches. Towels and tea towels didn't smell fresh and bedding was stained. I appreciate it can be difficult to keep a shower cubicle clean but the grout and sealant were mouldy. A lot of surfaces were also covered in dust. These things would be remedied if cleaned between guests. It felt as if the bare minimum was done before the next guest arrived. All things considered it would probably mean I wouldn't return.

    Thank you for your feedback, the local area has so much to offer and we find it's the perfect getaway for most. Following your stay, we immediately checked the bedding and found that it wasn't a stain but a slight scotch mark from an iron. In regards to your other comments we were quite taken back. After many successful bookings and people consistently saying how clean and comfortable this property is this is out of the ordinary for us. We do wished you would have called us or sykes whilst on your booking as we would have been happy to help rectify any problems whilst you were there. Kind regards Property Owner

  • "Wonderful relaxing stay at a beautiful cottage."

    Ideally situated and ideal for my wife and me. Had a great 4 day break being able to relax and recharge after a hectic year. The cottage was all lit up and the heating on when we arrived along with a complimentary bottle of bubbly. A really nice surprise. We met the owner a day or so later, she was really friendly and checked if everything was in order. The patio area is quite large and leading down the garden there is a lovely platform seating area with a stream running passed. Also the view includes some Lama/Alpacas ( not being experts we could not make our minds which model they are. We are considering returning in the summer time if only to sit on the platform deck in the evening with a glass of wine ( or maybe two) Thank you for giving us a lovely time.

    My two children (7 and 3) loved sleeping on the mezzanine level bedroom - it was like their own den! The cottage was perfect for us. It was equipped with everything you would need, clean, homely and beautifully decorated. The garden is just stunning with lots of space for the kids to run around and play. The llamas at the bottom of the garden were an added bonus and the kids loved them! Amanda and David were so friendly, they gave us a warm welcome and were great with the kids. They even gave them a treat for the long drive home which made their day. We were all sad to leave but will be back again soon. Thank you so much for making our week in Chester so lovely.

    The double glass doors of this delightful cottage open out onto a patio where you can relax on the comfortable garden furniture whilst watching the llamas grazing in the adjacent field. The hosts are very friendly and approachable, we were given a warm welcome on arrival.

The only constructive feedback we have is that the at the property could have been more thorough (i.e ornaments had not been moved and cleaned under on side tables / window in bedroom, skirting boards needed cleaned, bathroom sink needed wiped round) but then I am a clean freak so my expectations are always high!
