We spent a lovely week in this cosy cottage. We chose this location as our daughter and her family live nearby. We have had self catering holidays for over 50 years and this was the best. Simon and Julie are very caring hosts and made us feel very welcome with delicious lemon drizzle cake and flowers, thank you.

Charming, cosy cottage with a fascinating history carefully researched by the owners. A superb location handy for the attractions of Liverpool, Cheshire & North Wales. Excellent local walks. We were made very welcome, comfortable beds & living space - would highly recommend.
