The Heart of England/Peak District
Chester is situated on the border between England and Wales, and is close to both the beautiful Welsh countryside and also to the bustling city of Manchester with its great art galleries and restaurants. Chester itself has a beautiful Cathedral, good shopping, a zoo and also the Carden Park Hotel Spa and Golf Club.
Ideal for walkers and for exploring the Cheshire countryside. If you want to avoid the hustle and bustle of Chester City on an evening, then a 5 minute stroll will take you to the local village with welcoming pubs, bistro, shops and even the florist shop owned by Paul Burrell, the former butler to Princess Diana! Farndon Village featured in the Cheshire Life Magazine March, 2011 and named as one of Britain's 12 best villages in The Sunday Times "Home" Magazine 13th March, 2011.
Approximately 7 miles to Chester and 7 miles to Wrexham.

"Excellent property in a good location."
The property is deceptively spacious and easily accommodated 6 adults and 2 small dogs. On arrival the cottage was immaculately clean and we were very pleased with the layout and standard of presentat… More
Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you found the Oak Barn clean and spacious enough to accommodate your family. Rob and I love the village life and regularly wander down on an evening for a drink and a meal. I look forward to maybe accommodating you another time. Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.

"Modern, spacious accommodation"
We stayed in Oak Barn No1 which was modern and had ample room for 4 adults and a dog. Great having two full bathrooms too.No secluded area for the dog to be let out to sit etc which was a shame as he … More
Thank you for your review. I am pleased that you liked the location. It is nice to visit Chester and the surrounding area and have somewhere tranquil to retreat to each evening. I am glad you liked my home grown vegetables and the shortbread as well. It is always good to receive positive feedback. I am sorry you were disappointed that there was nowhere for your dog to sit unattended outside. I try not to encourage this in case a dog should escape into the nearby fields and disturb the livestock or children playing nearby. Thanks again for your review and I look forward to welcoming you back another time. Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.

Stopped for 3 nights. Quality of the lodge was first rate, and great value for the money. Location was rural enough to be very quiet but only a five minute walk into Farndon. Would recommend.… More

Our extended family (3 generations) had a wonderful Easter Break here. The location is perfect - panoramic views and peaceful surroundings, but only a 10 minute walk to the village. The barns are imma… More
I am delighted that you enjoyed your Easter break and thank you for the great review. As you mention the village is very convenient to the Oak Barns and very handy if you need to pop out to the local shops. It is also nice to have local pubs available if you want to wander out on an evening for a drink with the family. I am glad that I was able to meet your family's needs. Thanks again, Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.

"Superb accommodation in beautiful setting"
We all thoroughly enjoyed our break at Oak Barns.
The accommodation is so lovely, we as Grandparents appreciated the bedroom and bathroom on the ground floor, with the rest of the family upstairs ! It is in such a lovely area, we loved Farndon, and Holt and my Daughter, myself and Grand Daughter really enjoyed the retail therapy in Chester !! We always do self catering as my Daughter has a lot of serious allergies, so Oak Barns was perfect for us. The 'oldies 'did several walks along the River which was perfect, we were all so amazed how quiet everywherere was ! but I guess that's because we are used to Birmingham !!!
Thank you again for your assistance with the booking, and please thank the owners on our behalf.

"Lovely, clean, modern house in great location"
Stayed here with 3 small children. Great location and easy to find with directions from owner. House was modern and tidy with all mod cons. House was very clean and everything was working including tv, dvd, dish washer washing machine etc. Beds very comfortable and we all slept (including the kids!) as lovely and peaceful. Barbeque was provided which was nice touch - but as this was the wettest summer on record we didnt get to use it!. Only (very small) negatives - bath towels quite small so consider bringing your own and just be aware bathroom upstairs is in the main bedroom - no problem for us as staying with my family. If you are staying with friends - you either need to be happy to 'share' or use facilities downstairs. Owner was on site and very helpful. We would definately stay here again if in the area and I would highly recommend.

"Graet for kids"
Great house and ideal for families. Lots of space for children to run about and look at horses. Younger children will need supervised as not enclosed (just me being a hyper safe Mum). Lovely wee vil… More
Thank you for your lovely review and for taking the time to comment. Sorry that you found the single beds a little uncomfortable. Some guests prefer a hard mattress, some a soft one and it's difficult to find a mattress that meets all levels of comfort. I will buy some comfy bed toppers this week and place them in the linen cupboard. I am sure that this will resolve the problem.
Thank you again for your review - Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.
