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.

    The farm itself was lovely and lots of room for 7. Hot tub was a fantastic way to relax after our days out. Owners couldn't have been more helpful. All in all a very enjoyable 4 days

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

    Charming old farm house comfortable and warm (except for the kitchen which was quite cold). Lovely outside area with hot tub. Very friendly and helpful owners. Some of kitchen equipment needs replacing soon.

    We loved Smithy farm. It is very spacious. The only thing to better it would be a dishwasher and warmer kitchen. The owners were very friendly and a accommodating. The hot tub and pool table are an extra bonus. Thanks for a lovely weekend Smithy farm.

    Fabulous! A warm welcome from Vicky and a warm and welcoming holiday home. We loved everything about it. Next time we will bring a cafetière, but that's a very minor thing.

    Absolutely loved the cottage, beautiful building and place - very quirky. Owner was lovely and very helpful, left the cottage warm for us and sundries for our use. She went over and above to make us comfortable. Hot tub was excellent and in a really nice little spot. Would definitely love to stay here again.
