Spacious, family cottage with original features and enclosed courtyard, Tattenhall, Chester Zoo and Beeston Castle all close by.

Easy driving distance to the city of Chester

Sympathetically converted farm buildings, retaining original features, offering a very good standard of accommodation. Located at the end of an unmade road, they sit quietly in this rural community, yet they are within easy driving distance of the city of Chester, famous for being a walled city with its unique half timbered galleried shops and its Victorian Eastgate clock - said to be the most photographed timepiece in the world after Big Ben. Shops, restaurants and history are all to be found here. Chester has the largest amphitheatre in Britain, a 10th century cathedral, two renowned museums - the Grosvenor and Military Museums, and not forgetting the zoo! The walk around the walls is approximately 2 miles and offers a birdseye view of the city centre with views across to Wales’ magnificent mountains. Cheshire Oaks retail outlet village is a short drive away. At the end of the lane is the Beachin therapy swimming pool for dogs. Malpas, with its magpie style houses, Beeston with its castle, Tattenhall where the Cheshire Farm Dairy ice cream is made and Farndon which links Cheshire to Wales by a sandstone bridge are all an easy drive. Cheshire is also the gateway to some of the finest English countryside and Welsh borderlands. Golf is available within 2 miles of the property. Shop 5 miles, pub 2 miles.

    This is a large property, much bigger than pictures suggested. Our party consisted of 6 adults and plenty of space for all. Cottage was bright, clean and welcome pack appreciated with lots of useful local information. Also greeted on arrival and shown cottage and owners were very welcoming. Great location as a base for visiting Chester and surrounding area/attractions. The only reason we marked down and only suggestion for improvement is a few more knives as only 6 provided for 6 people so none spare but this is only a minor detail and in no way lessened our enjoyment of our stay. Would recommend to family and friends.

    Lovely conversion, large rooms, could live there full time. The broken shower, 1 out of 2, was a let down, but can't be helped. Agency left it too late to sort something out, as we were already on our way. A discount would have been appreciated.

    Fabulous cottage. Very spacious and comfortable. Loved the two sitting rooms. The cottage would benefit from full-length mirrors in each of the bedroom as, at the moment, only the twin room has one. However, this is only a minor point. We would love to go back.

    We had the most comfortable and relaxing weekend at the Drift House. It has been created with thought and care to give you a lovely home from home experience. You feel like you are away from everywhere even though everything you want to see or do is on the doorstep. The mobile phone signal was vertually non existent (for me a bonus) and no problem with the broadband. We are hoping to make another visit next year.

    Lovely property. Milk, tea, coffee, sugar and biscuits a very welcoming touch after a long drive. Tight rural roads not nice to drive getting there but a really beautiful home from home once we arrived.

    Very comfortable modern accommodation. Well placed for many attractions. The owners were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was the pothole covered drive, which was not their responsibility.

    The Drift house was very comfortable although only 6 knives for four people had to keep washing up knives, the bed linen was not ironed which did not look good on the beds. The road up to the cottages although a farm track it was very bumpy and holed not an easy ride. However the house was comfortable and clean apart from cobwebbs and we had a very good stay.
