"Great House and Location"

Stayed at home farm for 1 week the house is very spacious and has everything you need for your stay , we were a party of 4 adults and 1 teenager , there is nothing i can fault about the house the owners have given a lot of consideration to the property . The house is in a great location for touring the area we went to North Wales by car , we also used the train station a Cappenhurst a few miles away and traveled by train to Chester takes about 10 mins then a 10 min walk to the center of Chester also went by train to Manchester(you have to change a Chester) you can also go to Liverpool . I would recommend the Greyhound Inn at Saughall for a meal excellent food . This is a great house with great facilities - hot tub, snooker room, gym, large garden with tables and chairs - barbecue, kitchen with Aga

"Beautiful spacious house, ran by a lovely helpful family - we'll definitely be back"

We had an unusual booking for a surprise birthday treat, and the family were incredibly understanding & accommodating of my strange requests right from the initial enquiry.
The house is newly refurbished and in immaculate condition, with 2 hotubs (1 indoor and one outdoor) a pool table, bbq area and a fantastic kitchen space.
The house is situated well for Chester, Ellesmere Port and country walks.
There were 7 of us in our party, and all thoroughly enjoyed their weekend stay. We are already planning our next stay at the farmhouse, and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a country break with friends and family.
Thanks Sarah & Dan
