  • "Loved the location and appreciated the attention paid to the wildflowers and grasses which attract pollinators."

    The pond too attracted insects especially dragonflies. I would suggest though that the grasses near to the cottage, especially near the French doors from the living room, would be better cut back a little to give better access to the lawn and pond. Found the TV difficult to operate, but spent evenings outside. Great location in village 5 mins from shop and pub/restaurant.

  • "We had a really lovely stay in this great little cottage."

    It is well equipped and comfortable, and would recommend. Only one point of caution! The exit drive is almost hidden and immediately onto the lane. A mirror opposite might be a good idea.

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the stables, lovely and quiet ."

    The cottage is cozy and I enjoyed being able to sit out in the garden and listen to the birds even in March. Will be looking to go back as it's so much more relaxing than a hotel stay.

  • "Comfortable cottage in rural surroundings."

    ...love the wildness of the land, the trees, plus the pond. Not the best time of year for a visit weather-wise but was lovely to see the blossom starting to come out in the surroundings. Conveniently located for exploring Cheshire - we love Chester & Knutsford particularly. Comfy bed & ample clothes storage, handy to have the dressing table & chair too. Would definitely recommend. We stayed as a couple but the other bedrooms looked cosy too.

    I had a very minor query during our stay but the owner was very quick and polite in responding. Would highly recommend the stables .

  • "The property was very good for us as a family of five."

    It’s well equipped and spacious. It was warm and welcoming, after a long drive for some of us. We had plenty of room and our 8 year old lived her little bedroom under the eaves. It was ideal for us, as we live in large cities. Some constructive feedback- The garden was very overgrown but it was so wet when we were there, we didn’t venture out. However, it didn’t look great from the windows or on arrival. The kitchen is spacious but would benefit from a dishwasher. Some of the mugs, and the cutlery had to be re-washed before use. The signage at the gate is not great and barely visible from the road. We drove up and down the Lane before we found it. Otherwise, we’ve had a lovely stay and would recommend.

  • "Perfect base for us for a few days, in fact we wish we lived here!"

    Really well setup property, with everything you could need. It gave us a perfect opportunity for a peaceful break but with lots on doorstep to get to easily. Nice touch of some Welsh cakes and pint of milk upon arrival too.

  • "Lovely place to stay and a good base for exploring the north west."

    Just a few issues, the tv remote still doesn’t work properly and the iron is broken. Could do with thicker duvets for the colder weather.

  • "The only downside of the property was the remote for the tv wasn’t working."

    Everything else exceeded expectations - the place is beautiful, bright, clean and so welcoming. We will definitely be back!

  • "A lovely hidden gem of a place, surrounded by gorgeous countryside."

    The Stables were perfect for our family getaway whilst we visited family in the area and we were so happy with how quiet, private and "left alone" it was. Clean, stylish and just utterly charming with everything we needed for our holiday. We will be back!

  • "We had a fantastic week at the cottage and have found our little haven of peace and tranquility nestled in the Cheshire Countryside."

    We chose this location to be close to family so we could visit and they could see us while adhering to all of the local regulations - it worked out perfectly. The cottage was great in ever way and we are planning our return visit at the earliest opportunity - Fabulous.

  • "Wonderful setting."

    Grounds are a wildlife paradise but you will need wellies to fully explore on damp days. A spacious feeling and warm cottage with plenty of storage space. Nice local pub but do take a torch and light/ reflective clothing in the winter months as a short walk in dark lane. Lots to do within a 15 mile radius. Our satnav took us to the middle of Cow Lane with the postcode but it is first driveway on right approaching from bag lane - literally about 20 feet down.

  • "The house is great and we were very good, but we had to return a week earlier than planned to Spain due to the restrictions of the Coronavirus."

    I think this is a reason for greater cause and that the company should have returned the corresponding part of the reservation, as requested. We will consider it for future reservations.

    Lots of wildlife about and nice a quiet. Has everything you need. If I was been a pit picky a hover would of been handy. Not keen on the staircase directly outside the kids bedroom, maybe a stair gate should be available. All in all very happy.

  • "We had a fabulous week at The Stables."

    The house was bright and spacious with a lovely family kitchen/dining room. Lots to do in the local area and a great base to come home to each day with lots of opportunities to explore wildlife on land and in the pond (nice to have identification books in the property so that we knew what creatures and plants we had discovered). The only thing that could have made it even better would be if more of the large garden had a bigger area that the children could have played in (the very long grass made it a bit tricky to play football in).
