    Location for North Wales & Merseyside is excellent. Accomodation is likewise & hosts kindly provided a few provisions (including a bottle of prosecco). Only (slight) criticism is bedrooms let a lot of light in (not good with young ones) & walk into village is on busy road with no paving. Overall though thoroughly recommended.

    Our extended family of eight had a lovely time here. Emma met us on the first evening to check we were ok. Cottage very clean and well equipped (especially the kitchen). Lovely full size cot for the baby. Very nice garden with bbq. No complaints and we would definitely stay again if we were in the area.

    We had a lovely stay with extended family over the May bank holiday. Blessed with lovely sunny weather too! Comfortable house with everything you need & lovely touches like toiletries in the bathrooms. Nice big garden which was well used by our 2 & 9 year old. Tesco 5 minutes drive away. Chester nearby - we visited the city walls & Roman amphitheatre (daughter's school project)!
