  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Dairy Apartment 1."

    We found all the staff at Tatton Park to be very helpful and friendly during the stay. The cottage is in an idyllic position near the farm and close enough to walk to the gardens. The voucher included to use at the farm and the gardens is a great addition and we visited both, which I can highly recommend. The cottage was clean and well equipped, the only downfall we encountered was the lack of hot water, we ran out of hot water whilst showering, which could be a problem in the winter months.

  • "Lovely cottage in amazing surroundings."

    Very happy with everything and would very much recommend this accommodation. There were also many things to do nearby. A cracking holiday.

  • "Unfortunately there were painters there all week - requiring us to open all windows at 8 o'clock each day."

    It did mean we were up and out early but the heating system was obviously straining to keep the cottage warm. This might be why the boiler began to leak on Friday. The painters were a cheerful bunch and we had an interesting, busy holiday. We did leave a note for staff looking after the cottage who have responded nicely. We were not informed painters would be there. H David Pickford

  • "Had a fantastic stay over Christmas."

    Just one small piece of advice… we are keen on recycling but, unfortunately, every council has a different set of recycling bin rules. It would be a good idea to add another note in the on-site folder to detail which items are classed as recycling for the local council and, also, to make it clear which of the two bins (black or silver) is for recycling materials. We would strongly recommend this apartment (we have stayed in both at different times). We have booked to return in May and are already really looking forward to it.

  • "What we liked: 1."

    The location. 2. If you were not an NT member, a free pass was provided by the friendly and professional Retail Administration Team. 3. We were able to have visitors come, and park their car in the parking area rather than using TP's main car park. 4. It was quaint, with a good amount of logs for the fire. 5. There was a fresh lick of paint that a previous visitor mentioned was needed. 6. The Retail Administration Team were helpful, responsive, and professional both pre-visit and during the stay. What we thought could be improved: 1. Shower would suit Twiggy but not those of average proportions. 2. Shower situated adjacent to the frosted window, but window sill became soaked. The whole bath unit could do with being rotated 180 degrees, and in addition, better still, a bath that has a wider shower section. 3. We were informed that a survey was done as to whether wi-fi would be useful there, and the conclusion was that people felt they wanted seclusion. That would be fine if the phone signal was good enough in the cottage to use a smartphone as a hot-spot, but it wasn't. I think that to widen the appeal, wi-fi would be useful, and a smart device for the TV. For those with a poor phone signal, wi-fi calling would also then be of benefit. 4. There remained a smell even after the outside drain was unblocked. It was not the oil boiler type of smell, so it may be prudent to remove the white goods to access the waste pipes behind them to investigate further. 5. The TV signal in the lounge was too poor to use (strength 4/10) and so the display broke up and also clicked. The Retail Administration Team very kindly tried to eliminate the issue by changing cable and TV to no avail. Even getting the wall socket fixed did not make any difference. The booster device changed nothing, so it may be that the aerial or cable to aerial needs investigating. Until then, it's pointless trying to lounge with the TV on. It has to be said that the TV in the bedroom was absolutely fine, albeit a little small. 6. The open nature of the lounge and kitchen meant that the old oil boiler was very noisy, however it did give good heating. 7. The windows being single-glazed meant that there was a LOT of condensation on the inside. Overall, our visit wasn't totally ruined by the items above. We worked around the problems.

  • "A fab setting, so quiet and peaceful ( except for the geese who could be a bit aggressive!"

    ) I love the house but it is getting a bit tired- a lick of paint wouldn’t go amiss.

  • "Tatton Park is very beautiful especially its Mansion, glass houses and japanese garden, which we had a priviledge to visit as many time as we wished."

    The park is within short distance to Liverpool, Manchester, Chester, North Wales and Pick District. Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Dairy apartment is located in a very peaceful place. The only negative experience we had was the lack of Wifi. We had a wonderful time and possibly return to this place again.

    Very comfortable double bed. Some water pipe noise from the bathroom when flushing the loo or running the hot tap, but otherwise no domestic problems at all. Very good to have central heating, too!

    It is so nice that it is nearly postcard kitsch. The Cottage is spacious and provides everything you need for comfortable and relaxed holidays. Not to speak of the location: You live in the countryside and are near Manchester at the same time. I would highly recommend this accommodation to everyone!

    The cutlery/glasses/china was not sufficient unless you eat a lot of soup (3 dessert spoons and about 6 soup!). It would have been good to have a couple of extras for visitors. Draft from the badly fitting front door and nearby window. But otherwise we were very happy

  • "Some confusion over towel provision at this property."

    Sykes say no towels but in fact towels provided. Generally good property however ants in kitchen are a problem, several damp patches and black mould - not the best for asthmatics . Adjoining door to apartment 2 (adjacent to dining table in only living area) meant we could hear TV and conversations in property next door - particularly when they were watching football! Location within Tatton Park is great however farm staff definitely viewed us as a nuisance. Can understand that to some extent but it made us feel uncomfortable on more than one occasion.

  • "The cottage was comfortable, stylish, and mostly extremely clean (there was a soapy puddle in the soap dish in the bathroom), and the location couldn't be bettered."

    Bedding and towels were of a lovely quality, and it was especially pleasing that the cleaning products (which were in good supply) were Ecover. Some sugar would have been useful (there was a very small number of sachets) and more than one loo roll would also have gone down well (we did leave the spares from the pack we bought!). Free entry to the park and gardens was also very welcome, and although we didn't make full enough use of it, we intend to make a repeat visit and will probably do so then - if we're not too tempted by the comforts of the cottage! Very happy.

    We were delighted with the little supply of staples on arrival and the logs for the wood burner. The free pass to the farm, house and gardens was an added bonus. We were very comfortable and surprised by the high level of fixtures and fittings. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, its a beautiful part of the country.

  • "The apartment is lovely and spacious, very well equipped and spotlessly clean."

    Beds and sofas very comfortable with quality bedding and towels. The gates were no problem and the ducks, geese and chickens were delightful - also highly amusing if you are there at feeding time! (I never knew chickens could run that fast!) Only minor details marred our week - lack of wifi and phone signal was inconvenient. The family in the larger apartment above us were very noisy - they seemed to spend the nights stamping and jumping up and down - we were woken on several occasions during the night.

  • "We thought Dairy Cottage was adequate but drab and felt old fashioned."

    It could benefit from some 'colour' and lacked tlc, particularly the garden area which was very unkempt. The kitchen was well equipped, the heating and hot water were excellent but we were disappointed in the poor quality of the bed linen and pleased we took our own.

  • "I love coming back to this cottage it is exquisite in every way, the setting in the magnificent Tatton Park makes for a memorable stay."

    The high level of cleanliness is so much appreciated and so welcoming after a long journey. I do think the provisions could be more generous, one toilet roll for four, no shampoo, conditioner or body wash. There is little in the kitchen such as paper towel, Cling film, or aluminium foil. However all is forgiven as the beautiful surrounds, gorgeous bed linen and wild life work their magic !

  • "The cottage is warm and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen."

    The views are rather restricted. The cottage garden was a bit disappointing as it's just a grassy area rather than a garden as such but the general area is rural and access to Tatton Park is excellent. The noise from planes is intrusive if you aren't used to it. There is no wifi and no hairdryer.
