Sykes has plenty of phone numbers to book a cottage but, try reporting a problem, and it's by message which wasn't answered for five hours. Simply not acceptable in my view. Tatton management was very good and dealt with situation (as best they could). Dairy cottage has no internet and barely any mobile access. In today's world, I think the lack of internet should be shown in house details not left to a chance reading of previous tenants' comments. Reviewed by SusanJul 2022 "This is the fifth time we have stayed in the cottages and we would do it again." It’s not only the character and comfort of the cottage, but also: its location in the beautiful grounds of Tatton Park; the helpfulness of the staff at Tatton; the well equipped kitchen; the coziness of the wood fire; all within easy reach of Knutsford. Thank you for a lovely Christmas, we had a great time here! Reviewed by ToniDec 2021 "We don‘t like to leave a negative feedback, but the cottage was very basic." For the the first 4 days we could not use the shower as it was leaking and could not sleep in master bedroom with the constant Chinese torture-like dripping from it! There was an overwhelming smell from the oil fuelled boiler which was intolerable without having all windows open! Fortunately we had good weather to enable this but of course for security at night and whilst we were out the windows had to be closed. The cleanliness was dubious the towel rails in the bathrooms were filthy! We had to buy ourselves a coffee machine and water filter jug, just in case you‘d like improvement suggestions for the the future. The location was great but disappointingly Tatton Park‘s facilities were largely closed due to staff shortages!!! i hope this is helpful! Reviewed by BJun 2021 "Our stay at the Dairy Appartement, Tatton Park was idyllic." The cottage, the woodburner, the donkey's in the field, the people on the farm the staff at Tatton Park. It was so much better than we anticipated. We enjoyed a walk through the park to pick up a newspaper or loaf of bread - wonderful. The only downside, cottage doesn't have WiFi but we took a mobile data WiFi router which worked fine because we needed to be connected whilst we were there. Reviewed by AnneOct 2020 "Spacious and well equipped cottage in ideal location to explore NW England and N Wales." Access to all Tatton Park’s award winning facilities (without having to pre-book) is included in the price, which is a real bonus. Also worth a special mention are the friendly and helpful estate staff. This was a last-minute booking and there was little else available, but it’s turned out to be one of our best and most memorable holidays. Only wish we could have stayed longer! Our second brilliant cottage stay arranged through Sykes - Many Thanks! Reviewed by BarrySep 2020 "It was wonderful to go out in the mornings to greet all of the animals before the general public were allowed in." The location was very convenient for the south Manchester area. Eating breakfast outside, overlooking Tatton Park was lovely. The only thing that could have made it better would have been WiFi. The lack of WiFi became an niggling irritation but the overall holiday was lovely and suited us after the lockdown due to COVID-19. Reviewed by GeoffreySep 2020 "Jan was extremely helpful." Lovely setting. Really enjoyed our stay. Reviewed by SharonJul 2020 "A lovely Cottage in beautiful surroundings." Has all you need for a comfortable stay. Could do with a bit of love and attention. Also some repairs to the windows or new windows. Despite that we really enjoyed our stay. Reviewed by DeniseJul 2020 "This was the second time I have stayed here, having stayed in Apartment 1 last year." The noise of planes from Manchester Airport does not bother me, nor any of the other members of my party, but will do to some and this should be made clearer in the listing. Whilst the property had been well cleaned and was fully equipped, it is clear it is some time since the property has been updated/undergone an overhaul. I would think it unlikely on any modern definition of a four star rating that this would qualify with areas of the property (such as the utility room) extremely messy and the freezer shoved in a dark cupboard in this room where an oil fired boiler provides a 'nice' oily smell. The property location, both for Tatton Park itself and for the North West as a whole with its proximity to the M6, cannot be faulted. It is sadly showing signs of its age and is not perhaps the jewel it once was or could indeed be in the future. Reviewed by NeilOct 2019 "The furniture could really benefit from a clean or recovering." The sofas were badly stained and have lost some of their spring. The single beds were really uncomfortable, new mattresses are required. Reviewed by WinifredOct 2019 "The location of the property was as advertised but the property itself was very tired looking - inside and out." The lounge furniture wasn’t really comfortable and the door between the 2 apartments wasn’t soundproof or smell proof. The back lobby, where the boiler was housed was untidy and the smell of oil from it was very unpleasant. It was very untidy and hard to get outside from it as the door to garden wouldn’t open very wide. The outside furniture is falling to bits and the garden needs a good tidy up. Upstairs the beds were not very comfortable, the en-suite door didn’t close fully. The bathroom radiator wasn’t working when we arrived and we had to get the maintenance guy out to repair it. There was nothing mentioned about the closeness of Manchester airport - the property was right on the flight path hence we had planes passing right overhead from early morning until late at night - certainly didn’t match the description of an isolated position. We certainly wouldn’t describe it as a 4 star luxury property. Overall we we’re very disappointed with the property. Reviewed by AngelaSep 2019 "Cottage is tired." We have stayed here 3 times over last 3 years. En-suite bathroom floor tiles need regrouting - most of it gone. Ensuite fan not working. Pillows need replacing as have lost all shape. Both Sofa is badly stained with water marks. Sofa not cleaned under - fluff. Only 2 half rolls of toilet paper provided. Previously provided a small selection from Tatton shop this time just tea coffee and some basic tesco biscuits. Reviewed by ToniSep 2019 "Wonderful location within Tatton Park once you get used to the height of the jets taking off from Manchester airport Tatton park grounds and mansions and rare breed farm are well worth exploring Tea Room at the Gardeners Cottage is a treat !" Try the fish shop ''Hooked'' in Knutsford - all freshly cooked Reviewed by GillJul 2019 "This is the 4th time we have been here ." . beautiful cottage( but with all modern facilities ) located in country surroundings but in an area where there are lots of things to do and see and to suit all ages.If you want some peace and quiet where you are staying but to be central to many places and activities this ticks all the boxes. For example Tatton House and Park are right on your doorstep but the cottage is within easy driving distance of Manchester City Centre, Trafford Shopping Centre, Chester, Liverpool etc but also the Peak District Villages of Bakewell and Buxton. We have already booked for next year... 5 in a row! Reviewed by LornaJun 2019 "Cottages are a wonderful getaway in a gorgeous location." The staff are friendly and helpful Reviewed by ElizabethJun 2019 "The cottage was great." I have felt bombarded by marketing emails however - to an irritating degree. Reviewed by SusanApr 2019 "Great place to stay" Reviewed by SteveMar 2019 "The location was brilliant M6 North and South on the doorstep." The Cottage was well laid out, spotless and very quiet. Reviewed by DouglasAug 2018 "We have been staying at this property for a number of years and would help us if there was some flexibility in the start and finish dates." i.e we would like the opportunity of booking for 8 or even 9 days. Reviewed by AndyJul 2018 "For us, the lack of Wi-Fi was a bonus as it restricted the teenagers usage and allowed us to spend more quality time together." It also kept us from being tempted to work. The cottage is located on the edge of the Farm attraction which our grandchildren enjoyed when they visited. However, due to restricted access and fencing we felt quite hemmed in at times, especially in the morning and evening when the farm closed. It would be an improvement if there was a pedestrian gate to be able to go for a walk and/or run before 12 midday or after 5:00 p.m. The voucher was an excellent idea and encouraged us to visit the house and gardens as this was free. Knutsford itself was a lovely town and well worth a visit providing you do not mind the intermittent plane noise overhead. We had a nice meal at the Lost and Found. Reviewed by AmandaApr 2018 "Children would have appreciated internet access." Duvets too warm. On one occasion there was a problem with the electric supply(low power) which according to neighour is a recurring problem. *On the whole we really enjoyed our time at the cottage,having access to all Tatton Park facilities was fantastic- lots to see and do on site, especially good as we had bicycles with us. *House was very well equipped- we appreciated having tea, coffee& milk to start us off. *Location excellent Reviewed by HazelAug 2016 Show more Summary Three bedrooms: 1 x double with en-suite shower, basin and WC, 1 x twin, 1 x single Bathroom with bath, shower over, basin and WC Fitted kitchen with dining area Large sitting room with woodburner.
