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.

    The cottage is nice and roomy and the location near to Chester is a good one, but the cleanliness was not up to the standard of the cottages we have stayed at before. First impressions are important and non of the duvet covers had been ironed which is indicative of the overall lack of attention to detail. We had to wash anything we needed to use in the kitchen before we could use it. The last section of road is as bad as has been reviewed but if you go at the correct slow pace you can cope with it for the usual twice a day you are on it. We have stayed at many cottages and it is a shame that this is the first negative one we have had to give.

    Lovely and spacious for the family to spread. Heating is great. Garden unusable due to dog mess.

    Well equipped and spacious cottage in a good location. The last part of the drive is in a shocking condition and the excuse in the guest info folder did not convince as unmade does not have to mean potholed and no attempt at chucking some crushed bricks or sand into the worst craters had been made. Cleanliness was generally good but with details missed such as the floor in the downstairs toilet which was very grubby along the wall by the opened door, the shelving under the television and the kitchen windows.

    The Drift House is very spacious and comfortable to stay at. We spent a week there and found it's location very suitable as it was quiet on a night and within easy reach of both Chester and Wrexham along with attractions like the zoo. The owners are very accommodating and helpful we found, not just during our stay but before as well, they also leave an information folder in the place for guests to find things that may be of interest/use. We used the Park and Ride service in Chester a fair bit as this was very accessible, cheap and easy to use as you can hop on and off all day. We would definitely stay here again if we were to return to Chester in the future and recommend it to anyone interested in going.

    Drift house suited our needs, the owners were very helpful providing a cot and high chair, and were very approachable. The house was a good size, plenty of room downstairs for 4 adults and an infant. Three good sized bedrooms and family bathroom the ensuite was okay. Good parking.

    Very spacious and comfortable accommodation. Hopefully the gas boiler has now been repaired but the owner came promptly when called to temporarily fix the problem. A little too far out if Chester for us but very well situated if you don't mind being isolated. The kitchen is very well appointed. All in all, an excellent cottage.
