Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely little cottage remote enough to get away from it all. But close enough to feel part of civilisation!

Stayed 4 nights and ate out each night. Can highly recommend Grosvenor arms at nearby Alford. Wife particularly liked the roll top bath!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here on the 4-6th September following our wedding. It was the perfect little romantic break! The cottage is so pretty, romantic and peaceful. We took our Springer Spaniel with us too who had an amazing time. The cottage is very clean and well maintained. When you arrive the kitchen is already stocked with tea, coffee, milk, cereal, bread etc. Which is a really nice touch. Would definitely recommend!

Absolutely bliss!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my boyfriend arrived to Chris and Grahams gorgeous cottage after a day out in chester zoo, just a 20 minute drive through beautiful farm fields and scenary. We found the cottage easily due to Chris and Grahams layout of instructions on how to get there. As we arrived the log fire had already been lit and the cottage was absolutely bliss! So clean and homely, with a beautiful view of the horses in the field. We was also provided with a welcome pack including jam, butter, milk and extra essentials which was so thoughful. In the evening me and my boyfriend decided to walk to the local pub nearby which was a 2 minute walk, great atmosphere and good priced cocktails. Overall It was an amazing visit and stay in chester for our first time and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a romantic getaway! Thankyou once again Chris and Graham!
