"Fab weekend at Pond Cottage"

Beautiful cottage in idyllic location, perfect for commuting into Chester. We are staying here this weekend and cannot compliment this cottage enough. The three bedrooms are beautifully furnished each… More

"Modern, well equipped cottage."

Lovely, modern, well equipped cottage, great for a weekend stay. Each of the 3 bedrooms are beautifully done, each with a great sized bathroom. Only negative was the small living area which we struggled to fit 6 people around the small table in the kitchen/living room.

So pleased you enjoyed our lovely en suite bedrooms, our plan was to make each bedroom feel like a luxury hotel room with large well equipped bathrooms.
I can only assume that you didn't extend the table as per instructions in our manual as at 5 ft 3 inches it is plenty big enough to seat 6 people comfortably.

It was a pleasure to meet you all and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay. You must come again in the summer and make the most of our wonderful decking area and grounds. I do wish you had told me about the small drainage problem before you left as it was just a 5 minute job to remedy it.

"Amazing Holiday Home and Location!"

This is a beautifully done out property. All the love and care and attention to detail I like. Perfect layout, accommodated all our needs and all bedrooms have their own en suite which was perfect for our family stay, and really comfy beds. Everything we could've asked for and more. Our little boy loved feeding the chickens and the bench swing. Our little boy is 3 so had to be supervised outside the property as there is a small pond and large pond but wasn't a problem.

A really high standard property in the perfect location for Wales, Liverpool and Chester.

We would definitely stay again as so much to do in that area.
A brilliant stay was enjoyed by all!

Thank you for your lovely review, I am so pleased you enjoyed Pond Cottage and our beautiful City.

Truly a beautiful place to stay, extremely comfortable and had everything we could possibly have needed. each bedroom was beautiful and the beds SO comfortable that it was difficult to get up in the mornings ! The cottage has fantastic motorway links and Chester Zoo & Cheshire Oaks are right on the doorstep.
A HUGE thank you to Julie for been so accommodating, we had a wonderful week and hope to see you in the future, and if you fancy selling that beautiful picture in the lounge Julie, put me first on the list :) !
