Welcome Cottages

A carefully curated collection of properties that offer high quality, good value accommodation in great locations across the UK, Ireland, France and Italy


This stunning detached house is ideal for family gatherings or fun with friends and taking full advantage of this well equipped holiday home.

Taking its name from the common land upon which it was built in the 18th century, this superb detached farmhouse offers beautifully presented and comfortable accommodation on the border between England and Wales. Nestled within 18 acres of land, Common Farm Cottages have their own equestrian facilities with an olympic-sized dressage arena, and horse riding lessons can be booked directly with the owner (at cost). Traditionally constructed with thick walls, the property has been significantly extended over the last hundred years, resulting in a spacious home, which has 5 bedrooms, 3 digital bathrooms, large and well-equipped dining kitchen and 3 reception areas, making it ideal for larger families and groups who want to spend time together. The bathrooms have digital temperature control and remote control. Common Farm boasts a mixture of traditional and boutique styles and combines all the character and charm of a period property with all the comforts required from a holiday home. There is a traditional woodburner which dates back to the early 20th century, and an open fire to be found in the entertaining rooms. The property has wi-fi as well as Satellite TV with sport and movie package, multiple blu ray players and games consoles to keep the children entertained. There is also an external games room with a HD cinema (seats 2) and a small pool table. Should relaxation be more your style, then why not relax in the Jacuzzi bath which has a holistic lighting system, as well as a TV. Common Farm will comfortably accommodate 9 people, however, larger parties may choose to book the additional detached lodge (ref W44150) which will accommodate a further 4 guests (2 adults and 2 children) in studio style accommodation. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

    Andrea was waiting for us as we arrived from Ireland. She explained everything in great detail. The house contained everything you could have needed for a holiday. We had a very enjoyable four days attending a very special family wedding. The only downside to the location was the lane into the property. It was full of potholes and very uneven. The lane wold appear to outside the control of the property owners.

    We really enjoyed our stay at Common Farm. The facilities were excellent and the cinema room / playroom was enjoyed by all and the owners were extremely helpful. Some improvement to the long track to access the farm would be beneficial.

    Common Farm is very nice and the lady who met us and showed us round was very pleasant and helpful. The 400 metres of road linking to the highway is unacceptable. It is barely motorable. Equipment like showers, fridges and toilets is high quality. Some equipment was lacking eg glassware, cutlery. The heating struggled to keep us warm during a very cold period.

    Went for a 60th birthday with family. 6 adults 1 infant 1 baby Cottage was just right for the weekend. Plenty of room for everyone with own space if needed. Games room and large screen a bonus. We had prior warning of the state of the lane to the cottage from the owners . Owner very welcoming and accommodating.

    Very nice house and good amenities. Owner is lovely. Access down track with pot holes was only issue.

    Lovely house, just about to have boiler serviced so that might explain minor hot water issues. Spacious and plenty of room for different groups to sit separately. Dining table a bit dark to play board games at night. Andrea showed us round and was really helpful and responsive to queries.

    My family and I spent a lovely long weekend here for combined birthday and early Christmas celebrations. We had a wonderful time. It’s so spacious and yet cosy at the same time. The jacuzzi bath was such a favourite especially as Sky tv was there to watch too. The games room proved very popular too. Would recommend to anyone wanting a large welcoming house for family fun.

    Lovely cottage, would probably stay again, the only drawback was the access lane which needed resurfacing 🤣

    This is the second time we’ve stayed here for a family break. There were 9 of us and there is loads of room. 5 separate sky tv’s including sports, a lovely outside area, log fire, 3 bathrooms and much more. Andrea, the owner, is very helpful. It’s less than 10 mins to a large retail park with supermarket, cinema and restaurants. Approx 15 min drive into the centre of Chester and maybe 20 mins from Cheshire oaks. We will stay here again!
