The Nest 5* Unique Boutique Barnlette (Slps 2 +1)

The Nest is a unique, boutique, barnlette. Small but perfectly formed it has romantic kingsize mezzanine bedroom upstairs with skylights above the bed so you can nod off under the stars and a fully equipped kitchen (hob, oven, microwave, fridge, freezer, pots, pans, plates etc)/dining/living area complete with seperate shower room downstairs plus French doors opening out onto a suntrap courtyard garden with daybed/loungers, squashy outdoor cushions, BBQ, chimnea, outdoor lighting and lanterns making this area just as lovely to relax in outside as it is inside. The Nest is ideal for two but it does have a kingsize sofa bed in the sitting area downstairs so could accommodate an extra child or maybe two single guests.

About Rachael Hill

Hello, My name is Rachael and my passion in life is making beautiful homes. I also love to go on holiday and over the years have stayed in countless holiday homes, B&B's and hotels - some great, some not so great. At Heald Country House I have pulled together everything I have learned about what makes a great place to stay and have created the sort of holiday home I would love to stay in - a private haven that feels like a real home - deep baths, powerful showers, surround sound, drinks chillers, coffee machines, roaring fires, sink into beds and inspirational decor. We have a range of VIP 5* Extras such as a private driver (cheaper than local cab), on-site beauty treatments, champagne and other goodies on arrival plus you can make your stay extra special by booking our VIP arrival service or our StarGazer and Fire Pit or Double Bubbles experiences.

Why Rachael Hill chose North West England

Winner of 'Best Place to Stay in Cheshire 2016! Visit England

Voted 'Best in Northwest' by The Telegraph!

We bought this property, not just for the great feel that it has, the views and the character but for the location too. Sitting on top of a hill with the river Weaver meandering through the land it's a peaceful haven that just oozes well-being and yet it's so accessible to Chester, Manchester, Liverpool, pretty market towns such as Nantwich, Whitchurch, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, the mountains and coastline of Northwales, beautiful walks such as the 36 miles of stunning Sandstone Trail just a couple of miles away, an abundance of great days out (Chester Zoo, Alton Towers, Delamere Forest, National Trust properties and cycle routes. We were also just a little influenced by the fact that we sit between two fantastic, gastro, country pubs, one of which is voted one of the best rural pubs in Britain! Think real fires, great food, buzzing atmosphere, candle-lit tables and over 180 gins to choose from!

What makes this barn unique

Feel like being pampered? The beautiful, rather grand, Rookery Hall Hotel, with it's second to none spa facilities, is just 10 minutes away an offers free day passes to all new guests. Alternatively, simply call one of our recommended therapists to arrange for them to come to you. We also have a special arrangement with the most fantastic spa situated in a beautiful walled garden of a country home not far away. The spa has been voted Spa of the year several times and the therapies are like none you'll try elsewhere - pure heaven! We are also just up the road from The Famous Cholmondeley Arms - voted one of the best rural pubs in Britain. Think roaring fires, beautiful gardens, fabulous food, perfect ambience and one of the largest collections of gins (and all their mixers!) in Britain!

Guestbook comments from the owner

WOW, fantastic! Just got back from a 4 day getaway in "The Nest", so cosy and kept spotlessly clean, the décor is lovely and felt like home away from home. The location is idyllic, peaceful and romantic with great pubs nearby - certainly recommend The Cholmondeley Arms G&T's (they go down a treat) and the Sunday Roast was the best I've ever had! Already planning our next visit! Thank you for such a relaxing and enjoyable stay. 10/10 all around!!
