"Home from home"

Having come back to stay for the second year running I felt right at home. We received a warm welcome, milk, sugar, tea and coffee ready so we could have a cuppa the moment we arrived. I adore these c… More

"Home from home"

The cottage was just perfect for us and had everything we needed including a cot, high chair and baby bath. We stayed 3 nights to use as a base for Alton Towers but wish we could have stayed longer. T… More

"Unexpectedly brilliant."

We actually won our weekend trip to Dairy Cottage in a raffle - a prize donated by the proprietors - so we can't comment on value for money. However, we'd be delighted to pay for our next t… More

"Fantastic Cottage in lovely location"

Thoroughly enjoyed our week at this lovely cottage. We had a lovely welcome which made as feel welcome and at home. The cottage is small but spotlessly clean and well decorated. When we were leaving and trying to sum up our thoughts on the facilities, my wife hit the nail on the head by saying there was nothing we went for and didnt have.
We found plenty to do in the local area and all within easy travelling distance. Alton Towers took us about 15 minutes and visits to local potteries, museums and parks didn't take much longer.
There is handy local food shopping with a Morrisons and an Asda in the village. The rest of the local shops will provide you with any basic requirements you may have , although they are not of much interest for browsing.
All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our holiday and found that in almost every way that Birchenfields exceeded our expectations
