Traditional family farmhouse with games room and hot tub, Manley Mere with adventure trail, sailing and kayaking close by.

This 18th century, semi-detached holiday farmhouse is located in the quiet village of Dunham-on-the-Hill, just 6 miles from the historic city of Chester. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and has a café and pubs. A wider range of amenities can be found in nearby Helsby or the market town of Frodsham (market on Thursdays). Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Village is within easy driving distance. The accommodation is well proportioned and combines original features including a fantastic outdoor covered hot tub and games room. With such great facilities on site it is tempting to just stay home and relax, but with so much to see and do in the area its just not an option. Smithy Farm offers something for everyone. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy exploring the beautiful Cheshire countryside, walks include Helsby Hill and quarry walks, whilst those who prefer a city landscape are ideally placed for commuting into Liverpool and Manchester. There is also a bus service from the village into Chester. There are lots of local attractions for families including Chester Zoo, Blue Planet Aquarium and Delamere Forest’s Go Ape adventure. Other activities available locally include numerous fisheries, golf (Helsby), and horse riding. Watersports fans will enjoy Manley Mere which offers windsurfing, sailing and kayaking as well as having an adventure trail. Cheshire is also a food lovers paradise with lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby including Marco Pierre White’s restaurant, which is less than 6 miles from the village. Shop 2 ½ miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Pros: Great location. Friendly owners. Clean and well maintained hot tub. Cons: Cleanliness (Carpets and sofas are dirty in the living room and kitchen could do with a bit of a refurb). There were ants on the dining room floor and table occasionally. Had to brush them off legs occasionally. Shower in one of the bathrooms is poor. No WiFi. Although advertised, it's the next door cottage's router that you're supposed to connect to and the signal isn't strong enough. Purchase WiFi signal extenders for the cottage! We are not serial complainers. Far from it to be honest, and this is the only negative review we have left in 5 UK cottage breaks. Hopefully this is fair and constructive enough as it's all easily rectifiable.

    An OK place but, being two knocked together cottages, rather small and claustrophobic. Very friendly owners.

    We had such a lovely girlie weekend at Smithy's beautiful! It was pristine on arrival and Victoria, the owner, gave us a warm welcome and a great tour. They have thought of everything and are happy to help with any queries or suggestions of places to go, eateries to try etc. So close to Chester for a night out too!! Fabulous cottage, I'm sure we'll be back.
