    We stayed for a week and found the The Old Stables very spacious, immaculately clean and perfectly located for access to Liverpool and Chester. Delamere forest is also very close by with a good set up for the kids (Gruffalo walk) The hosts were easy to communicate with and very friendly and helpful when this was required.

    Cottage requires updating and a good clean. Showers require re grouting, new mattresses and cover required, sofas terribly uncomfortable and dinning table bent !! Tv flickers on most channels. Really not up to standard! Kitchen utensils old and even rusty!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; We are sorry to hear that our usual high standards of cleanliness were felt to be lacking on this occasion. We feel we maintain our property to a high standard of decor and cleanliness and we have many repeat guests as a result. I would like to add these guests left the holiday cottage in a terrible condition and we had to draft in additional cleaning staff in order to get the cottage back up to standard in time for the next guests following their visit. We welcome feedback so on a few specific points - the bathrooms are updated every 2 years and are currently booked in for a refurb. In the meantime we keep them scrupulously clean. A new sofa suite was delivered very recently. We constantly replace bedding and soft furnishings. The dining table is an antique - which is in keeping with the property being 18th century. The Property information guide available also explains the correct use of the TV to ensure guests enjoy the best picture quality. These guests did not make use of the guide available. Following these comments we have checked all kitchen utensils and added several new items - we have removed the one item with a rust spot. We update the cottage continually and are always looking at ways to improve however we do feel these negative comments are completely unjustified. We are nearby and always on hand to discuss or rectify any issues at the time.

    Excellent location and home for a friends weekend away. Fabulous local pubs. Easy access into Chester Christmas markets (Taxi was £15 each way). Took all our food and drink so didn’t need to use shops.

    Great accommodation with all you need for a family get together. Warm and cosy with great space. Plenty of cooking facilities and a Tesco and pubs all within a short distance. The owners checked we were ok and we had a lovely Halloween party and decoration up in the beams which was great for the young childrens. Certainly will use again.

    Had a very enjoyable week in this spacious and well-equipped property - all on one level once you've climbed the outside staircase. Four bedrooms, two shower rooms and a bath made for a comfortable and relaxing stay for six adults. There's plenty of parking and far-reaching views. The location is rural, but all necessary amenities are within a mile or less. Highly recommended.
