  • "General cleaning was fine, but the kitchen left something to be desired."

    Also the shower head does not fit into the holder - we made do by 'balancing ' the shower head behind the holder, but it was a risky business.... A large hole in the fence, meant the garden was not secure for our dog. All that said, we did not experience any issues with traffic noise, as previously remarked on by other visitors. The location was ideal for us, visiting family members in the area. Lots of local pubs nearby. And, if you're lucky, you can watch a bit of show jumping from the front windows. Highly recommend Hollies Farm Shop, about 10 minutes from the cottage - lots of lovely food and treats.

  • "The listing was very open that the cottage sits between two busy roads."

    Fortunately armed with ear plugs and having nights that were not overly hot so not needing the windows open it didn’t really affect us very much however in very hot weather when you would want the windows open it could be a big downer if your not used to traffic noise. We phoned the equestrian center across the road as instructed to arrange collection of keys, as we arrived while the office was open we went there as arranged to collect the keys only to find they had been placed in the key safe on the outside wall. Nothing major just a little frustrating at the wasted journey as at then end of a long drive all we wanted to do was get in to use the loo and put the kettle on. The bathroom was very clean as were the bedrooms. Had to fold down the travel cot and store it out of the way before we could get into the smallest room but again nothing major. The lounge was clean and tidy. The covers on one of the sofas could have done with a freshen up, it looked as though it had a couple of dirty paw marks on the covers but they weren’t where we sat they were on the arms so not a problem we worked around it. For me the major disappointment was the kitchen. It look nice and clean on the surface. However the freezer needed a major defrost. The inside of the fridge needed cleaning before I could put food in there and the bottom of the oven had fatty water over it that had to be cleaned up before the oven could be used. I know holiday let’s are not a home from home, you won’t get all of the finishing touches that you get at home but to me general cleanliness should be a top priority and I felt this had sadly failed. The only other downside we found was there only being the one bathroom. I know this is what was advertised but didn’t realise with a houseful just how valuable a downstairs toilet would have been when there are 6 people all wanting to use the bathroom. We went from 4 for the first few days up to 6 over a long weekend down to 3 for the second half of the second week and we managed fine either side of the long weekend. Over that period where there was the 6 of us it was defiantly a little squashed. You would probably get away with it quite easily if most are children but we were 5 adults and one child. All in all not a bad place to stay though.

  • "Cottage was an ideal size for three adults and three children plus one small dog ."

    Unfortunate about position of cottage in between two busy roads 60 mph limit, good parking at rear of property enough for two cars. For some reason there were twelve mugs , four knives, eight forks , three desert spoons and four bowls , bin in kitchen had seen better days and would have been nice to have had the correct liners for it , toilet seat needs replacing fittings loose also . Property just needs a bit of tweaking to be spot on .

  • "This is our 4th visit to this cottage."

    Convenient location , staff at the equestrian centre across the road were very accommodating. Good walks for dogs, The Fishpool is a great Gastropub nearby and The Hollies farm shop is a must to visit too. Helpful owner when we had a problem with the heating early Saturday evening, he came out within 15 minutes and sorted it. Facilities are fine, the road is noisy during the day but you do get used to it very quickly! The new garden gate made the garden secure for the dogs. I’m sure we’ll visit again next year!

  • "Good base for a weekend away."

    Cottage was pleasant although a couple of the features were a bit tired and dated, but overall not bad. Garden small so maybe not best suited for large high energy dogs, but walks on doorstep at a Delamere Forest lovely and allowed plenty of off lead opportunities. Ate out at local pub, Fishpool inn which was excellent. Chester was also worth a visit.

    Just a possible touch to add something.

  • "Ve ry disappointed with position of cottage advert stated there would be some traffic noise."

    This was unbelievingly noisy as the cottage was sandwiched between 2 roads one being the main road to Chester and the other to the m6. We were unable to sleep and had to come home early as we were so tired . Very disappointing when you go away to relax. Also no welcome pack which would of been very welcome as there were no shops around Lastly we were unable to walk to the local pub with our dogs without risking our lives on these busy roads I

  • "The cottage was really nice and suited our needs perfectly."

    The staff we dealt with over the phone were helpful and friendly. There were a few negatives unfortunately. The garden would have been perfectly adequate for our dogs except there was a missing fence panel which meant we couldn't let the dogs out unsupervised. There was also a leaky shower. Aside from the manageable negatives, a great cottage in a good location.

    Close to Chester Zoo, also Primrose Hill wooded walks and Delamere Forest. Interesting to watch super horses at Equitation Centre opposite. The cottage is set in between two constantly busy commuter roads but you can quickly escape to quieter places. Very good value for money.

  • "We have never used Sykes before but found the listing about the cottage to be mostly accurate."

    Lovely old cottage, with a log burner, which we didn't use. Directly opposite the equestrian centre. Lovely bathroom with a great shower. I can't say this was the relaxing holiday we had planned though .Unable to sit outside and have a relaxing drink in the garden as advertised. .the noise from the road is terrible. Also, due to summer high temperatures we needed windows open all night .Impossible to get to sleep until 1am..traffic eases off then and begins again at 4am. People need to be aware of this before booking this particular cottage. If I had known about the noise I would have booked a different property! The small row of cottages are located on a triangular piece of land with a main road on each side Heavy HGV traffic and speeding vehicles all day and all night !

  • "The shower was not working so only the bath was available."

    It would have been really useful to have been told this in advance so that we could ensure we took the correct smellies with us, to be honest we would not have booked a cottage without a shower and although a leek can't be helped a bit more information would have been useful. The kitchen lacked some basic equipment like a colander/sieve and oven gloves. That said we enjoyed the cottage and our stay. The customer service from Sykes was excellent.

  • "Property was lovely, clean, modern, spacious & comfortable, Wonderful to watch the horses in the equestrian center across the road."

    Sandwiched between 2 busy roads, but did not detract in any way. (noise wise). Took a little while to work out heating on our arrival late evening, as after following instructions in kitchen (to only use the thermostat) heating did not come on. Partner sussed it (as heating was basically turned off). and after about half an hour or so we were able to be toasty!! (plus got the wood burner going). Back gate did not lock, and we had to wedge it shut, to make sure our dog was safe, especially as very busy roads in close proximity. We were visiting family so did not visit all the usual lovely places in the area, but definitely a great base for visiting Chester, Delamere Forest, wonderful walks, and North wales too!! Would definitely return. To be honest, cottage did exceed our expectations and we really enjoyed our stay.

    The location is ideal for exploring the nearby Delamere Forest and Sandstone Trail and handy for Chester. The cottage is in great condition and equipped with everything you need for a week away and the owners are just across the road if you need anything extra. It's lovely and cosy in the Winter with a log burner (and you can buy additional wood from across the road as you need it) and the owners even left a little Christmas Tree as we stayed in December!

About the location

KELSALL

Chester 8 miles.

The village of Kelsall is situated on Kelsall Hill, on the edge of the Cheshire Plains. The village is located near the famous Sandstone Trail and Delamere Forest and offers picturesque buildings, two historic churches, renowned farm shops, as well as a number of excellent pubs - there is something for everyone here. Chester is located 8 miles north, and the city 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 town houses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The city has much to offer the tourist, including superb shopping on the famous 'Rows', and lovely walks around the old Roman Walls, along The Groves beside the River Dee, or through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. The stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, and the market towns and villages of Cheshire and Shropshire are all within easy touring distance, whilst the nearby Wirral Peninsula has many splendid courses to tempt the golfing enthusiast.
