  • "We really enjoyed our recent stay in Chapel Cottage; the facilities were excellent and Bunbury is a great village to stay in."

    The cottage itself was immaculate and the description was very accurate. We will certainly be returning! Thank you.

  • "On our arrival we found Chapel Cottage to be very clean & well presented & the wide off road parking was a bonus over many cottages we have hired in the past."

    We didnt need to contact the owners during the week as everything worked as it should. Bunbury is a lovely friendly village with interesting old buildings, especially upper Bunbury. Chapel cottage is in a good location but the main road that passes the end of the cottage is quite busy. We made good use of the friendly Co-Op & the Nags Head pub but found the Dysart a bit pretentious IMO, £9.35 for a pint & a coke. Probably priced to keep the rif-raf away, it certainly worked as we didnt go back. The village chippy has a good reputation but was sadly closed whilst we were there. The gardens were well tended & the back patio area was a lovely suntrap but could be a bit noisy from the road traffic & people stopping to talk just over the hedge but it was quite interesting listening to the local gossip. We made lots of use of the lovely kitchen but it could do with some extra basic utensils such as plastic spoons & masher etc. Lovely downstairs bathroom with good bath & shower but the shiny floor tiles were a bit slippery when wet & would benefit from a proper bath mat, the upstairs WC was quite novel & felt a bit like going to the loo in a cupboard. The cottage is advertised as a two bedroom suitable for 4 people & has dining seating for six, it has a double bed in one bedroom & two singles in the other but the lounge has only a two seater sofa & a single rocking chair & a dining chair so there wasn`t adequate comfortable seating for four adults. We went as a couple but had made the offer to my son & his wife to visit us at the cottage but on finding that there was insufficient comfortable practical seating we had to sadly withdraw the offer. As I stated in the cottage visitors book another two seater sofa in the lounge would solve the issue & provide comfortable seating to sit & enjoy the big TV & the wood burning stove in the evening. My comments are my personal opinion & meant to be informative & constructive & we would love to return to Chapel cottage if they were taken onboard by the owners.

  • "Lovely well equipped cottage in a nice village, near Co-op, fish and ship shop and pub."

    Two other pubs within walking distance - all do food. Cottage is well placed for days out and the park and ride into Chester works well.

  • "Lovely cottage, and we enjoyed our stay , our only issue was that there was nothing visable to say that dogs were not allowed upstairs unfortunately."

    ( only written on a page in the middle of a book which if you dont look at you dont see it ) We think they need to provide a stair gate if this is the case as the stairs are fully open in the middle of the property

  • "The cottage was lovely and the surrounding area was beautiful."

    Was just a little frustrated that there was never enough hot water to have a decent bath. There was an amazing huge bath in the bathroom but never more than a couple of inches of hot water!! Other than that we had a great few days away and would definitely go back again.

  • "Wonderful cottage, full of character with some original 17th century features."

    Bunbury is a lovely village. Great cafe Tilly's almost next door and very good local butchers, coop store. Within walking distance the Dysart Arms is excellent excellent for food and local ales.

  • "Lovely cottage, very clean and well equipped."

    Close to lots of attractions. Very quiet village with very friendly people. The only thing that we would change is the sofa in the lounge, it was a bit small and not the most comfortable, but other than that everything was perfect.

  • "We enjoyed a lovely, relaxing week in this gorgeous thatched cottage."

    Very well maintained and presented in a tranquil little village. The cottage itself had almost everything we needed. There's a notice asking that guests don't let their pets go upstairs. Thankfully we'd taken a baby gate with us, otherwise I don't know how we'd have managed that. A wooden gate at the bottom of the stairs would be a good addition to the cottage for this reason. The cottage has a large front and back garden which is surrounded by walls and hedges. Whilst the garden is flat and safe for children/dogs, the hedges between the garden and pavement do have some small gaps in them and our dog managed to get through onto the road. Some additional netting/fencing in the hedges would make this more secure. The village had two pubs within a short walking distance of the cottage. Both offered takeaway food if you didn't want to eat in, which was very nice. The local butchers and village chippy were also great, and there's a little co-op for other groceries/essentials.

About the location


Nantwich 7.8 miles; Chester 13.9 miles; Stoke-on-Trent 26 miles.

The village of Bunbury lies at the western edge of the Cheshire Plain some 3 miles from Tarporley and 12 miles south east of the city of Chester. Little is known of its history prior to the Norman Conquest but it is generally accepted that the name is of Saxon origin and it is thought that there was a Christian place of worship on the site of the present parish church long before 1066. Early references to the settlement call it Bunan byrig, the stronghold of Buna. The village today has a supermarket, three pubs and the striking St Boniface Church which is recorded in the National Heritage List of England as a designated Grade I listed building.
