  • "Had a lovely stay here at the cottage."

    Ian was an excellent host, around if we needed him, he just left us to it. Tattenhall is a lovely little village. Chester is only 20 min drive away. Well worth a visit. You can park all day for £10 which was great as we got the train to Liverpool for the day. The highlight was relaxing in the hot tub after all that walking around.

    THanks for that lovely feedback Claire, so pleased that you enjoyed staying with us . Property Owner

  • "What a lovely little cottage!"

    This was such a great find and we thoroughly enjoyed our week here. Ian was extremely kind and accommodating, we stayed with a little one (11 month old) and we weren’t disturbed, we were just left to get on with our holiday but he was always there if we needed to ask a question. The cottage itself was lovely - just what you need for a relaxing getaway and with everything you need in it - cosy sitting room, decent sized bedroom and a kitchen/diner with everything you could need. The shower was amazing (really lovely pressure!), the sun loungers were so comfy and the hot tub was one of the best I’ve been in - it kept the temperature so well! Thank you Ian for such a wonderful stay - fingers crossed we’ll be back at some point in the future! Sarah, Louis & Georgina

    Thanks so much for your lovely feedback, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us. So glad that you enjoyed your holiday. Look forward to seeing you again in the future, best wishes Ian & Sue Property Owner

  • "Ian made us feel very welcome!"

    The cottage is a lovely space, in a beautiful location however we feel it is looking a bit tired and in need of some TLC as it's starting to show some wear and tear (i.e the bed bows in the centre and has been propped up with blocks). We enjoyed our short visit with our toddler but it would have been helpful if there was a highchair available for mealtimes (and easy clean up).

    We originally selected this cottage for it's proximity to Chester, as we wished to return there, however with the covid situation we chose not to visit any towns/cities or tourist attractions during our stay. Despite this we had a very peaceful and most enjoyable stay, there are plenty of routes for walking (sandstone trail) straight from the doorstep of this cottage and there is a well stocked shop in Tattenhall, as well as varied takeaways, if you opt to eat in. We hope to return again soon, hopefully in better times.

    Luckily had 6 uninterrupted days of really hot weather and was able to sit out in the garden catching up on some reading. Enjoyed having a glass of Prosecco in the Hot Tub each evening - so peaceful & relaxing. The surrounding countryside is very lush and beautiful and in the field opposite the cottage you can enjoy the company of Ian & Sue’s friendly cows. They currently have 2 cute baby calves and for bunny lovers like me you’ll see them hopping around in the early evening. Ian is a perfect host, very helpful but discreetly unobtrusive. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a home away from home. I’m already booked in again for July! - Jeannie Alsager
