Why Bona chose Cheshire West & Chester

The property is tranquil, with idyllic views and in a great location to access well known cities, such as Chester, Manchester and Liverpool. Enjoy the beautiful English countryside while remaining close to city life.

What makes this barn unique

The location makes it perfect for a country retreat and the views from the patio are particularly picturesque. Playing fields for children and pets are less than a 5 minute walk away with football posts and a play area. There are many walking routes should you have energetic pets and want lots of fresh air.

Our accommodation in Chester was warm and spacious. Lovely outlook from back alfresco space. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival. Close to local pubs and shops. Few minutes drive to Chester

Lovely property

  • 4 of 5

Booked this property as attending family wedding nearby. Two adults two kids. Pictures don't do the property justice - the downstairs area is huge! Liked the fact you just checked yourself in and didn't have to make small talk! Very clean. Some constructive criticism - another mirror, possibly full length would be good. Also some coathooks under the stairs would be useful. Other than that - great. Thank you.

Nice barn conversion

  • 3 of 5

The actual property was very nice - so much space downstairs but only 1 bedroom and bathroom. Would not like to stay in it with more than 2/3 people!!

The outside area was pleasant enough but the patio area is not enclosed so we could not leave the doors open to let the dogs out. Even if we had wanted to sunbathe on the one day - the owners had their sun lounger out on the patio so we felt we could not go outside, so a bit of a wasted time for us. Its not as rural as the picture gives the impression of either, lots of road noise. It did us as a base for our weekend away but would not stay here again - not dog friendly at all.

Owner's Response: Hi Michael I am glad to learn that you enjoyed the ample space the barn provides!. As you mentioned, the barn is ideal for 2 guests, but we have adequate sleeping facility for 6 if one chooses to avail it. The patio area has not been developed as a dog friendly area. We have a large paddock and also a public park opposite the property for the dogs to exercise. The sun loungers are for the benefit of both owner and guests.I urge the future guests not to deny themselves the use of sun loungers if they so wish. Tarvin (where the property is located) is considered rural and we feel the road is a fair distance away from the barn. I thank you for choosing the barn for your stay. It is unfortunate that you do not consider it pet friendly. We shall take your criticism on board and endevour to improve our guests experience even more in the future. Thx Bona
