Why Bona chose Tarvin

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.

Fantastic New Year Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the property for 2 nights over New Year.

Great location for local sights. We went into Chester and also visited Cheshire Oaks and Blue Planet Aquarium.

The Barn is very spacious and provided enough room for 4 adults and 2 children. Very well equipped inside. Even though the barn is on the property of the owner the barn itself feels completely separate with fantastic views.

There is a local village with a few pubs 5 minutes walk away. If we would have stayed longer we would have tried the local Chinese that seemed very popular.

The Barn itself is open plan downstairs which makes use of all the space. There are 2 bedrooms upstairs which sleep up to 4 people in one bedroom (double bed and 2 singles) and a double room in the other with an ensuite wet room.

We wished we had booked for longer.

Thank you for letting us stay and we will be recommending to family and friends.

nice place

  • 4 of 5

A well fitted-out cottage, lovely open living space, comfy bed, good facilities. Only one small point to note: WIFI not always reliable, or fast. Convenient location for Chester, Cheshire Oaks, lots of country walks.

Excellent accomodation, with one or two glitches

  • 4 of 5

The accomodation is excellent. Downstairs is a large space, well furnished and decorated, plentiful seating, cooking and eating facilities. Upstairs are two ample king-sized bedrooms, one with en-suite wetroom. The building is in a good setting, and it's only 5 miles from Chester, bit busy to get there during rush hour, but usually very easy. We were staying in a December weekend, and the heating had to have a run at warming the downstirs area up - no problem upstairs, very snug and comfortable. This was more to do with the daytime, when the thick curtains are open, than the evening. The problem appears to be a gap in the middle of each of the two double-doors: they need draft proofing. Oh yes, and I couldn't get the wifi to work properly, no matter how many things I tried, the signal was very weak, good enough to get emails eventually, but not for significant data downloads. The views from the lounge and area around the accomodation are very attractive, and bode well for those visiting during warmer weather.

Very good location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely conversion in a good place for exploring the area. Actual property a little difficult to locate off an exceedingly busy road.

Just what the doctor ordered

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful few days at Bona's converted barn. The huge field next door was perfect for our Border Collie to run and get tired. The stove fire was a welcome treat.

Highly recommended, and very comfortable.

Car: recommended

Beautiful parks such as Delamere forest are close by. Farm shops, restaurants, Cheshire Oaks outlet and supermarkets are all within a 5 - 20 minute drive. Attractions for children such as Chester Zoo and Crocky trail are easily accessible. The property's location is great for a country retreat, with picturesque views year round, especially in the early morning and at sunset.
