"Self-catering? This wins the prize!"

The property was immaculate and fitted out to the highest of standards. We have rarely had so much kitchen equipment provided in a self-catering property. Our bed was extremely comfortable and we slept very well in the peaceful surroundings. We loved watching the wildlife from our French window, and even had a warm enough afternoon (in March) to enjoy sitting on the decking by the pond. Julie, the owner, was most welcoming and helpful, not only on our arrival, but also during our stay, taking an interest in what we were doing and offering advice on where to go. If we were visiting the area again, this would be our first choice of accommodation. Friends who came to visit us in the cottage were most impressed - they even threatened to stay! (But we threw them out.)

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a lovely review. We are so pleased you slept well and enjoyed the peace and quiet.

We hope to see you again.

Best wishes

Pond cottage is beautifully furnished and in a fantastic location to explore Chester - 10 minutes to zoo and Cheshire Oaks outlet. It is very spacious and extremely well equipped and spotlessly clean. All our party enjoyed our stay here and we can't praise it enough. Thanks to Julie for a lovely welcome and will definitely be back.

Thank you for taking the time to write us such a fantastic review. It was a pleasure to meet you all and hope you will come and visit our lovely City again soon.
