    Great character property with lots of space for our group of 4 adults and a toddler. Nice decor and great location, we felt a few finishing touches would have been helpful though such as a bottle opener and washing liquid/soap. The bathrooms and oven could have also benefitted from more thorough cleaning which was a shame as everything else was great. Would stay again if the cleaning was improved.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for taking the time to leave your comments and be assured we will act on them - your feedback is really important to us. We will review the cleaning schedule to ensure a more in depth clean is carried out at changeovers and will increase the level of inspection to ensure high standards are maintained at all times. Unfortunately, we do sometimes find that small items have "disappeared - but we will add this detail to the cleaning schedule so that it is picked up before guests arrive. We are sorry we did not meet our usual high standards for your visit but we will put measures in place to rectify. Thank you again and we hope to see you next year.

    Back again for second visit. Not disappointed. Lovely accommodation, just right for long weekend away and well placed for drive into Chester (which is lovely city to shop and explore because it's not too big) to visit my daughter at Uni and at Cheshire Oaks. Nice pub down the road although no pavement for part of the way so on a rainy windy, dark November night we decided to would be no problem on lighter nights. The owner, Alistair, is friendly and helpful. Will be booking again hopefully next year.

    Response on behalf of the owner: Thank you for your comments and we are really pleased that you had a good time. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
