The Cheshire region
Farndon is a pretty village 8 miles south of Chester with the river Dee bordering the welsh village of Holt. There are pubs serving excellent food, a restaurant, a pharmacy, post office, beauty salon, hairdressers, newsagents and butchers all within walking distance of the property. A bus service runs hourly into Chester and to the welsh market town of Wrexham, approximately 6 miles south west of Farndon.
It should be noted that if you choose to 'street view' the postcode you will not see the road on which our property is situated. The house is an individual design tucked away and many local people are surprised to know of the location as the house is not visible from any roads.
The walled roman city of Chester has plenty to occupy the historian as well as the retail enthusiast! The Designer Outlet Village, Cheshire Oaks, is a 20 minute drive away and is worth a visit if in search of a bargain.
Walkers can enjoy strolls along the riverbank in both directions from the property or slightly further afield there are the walks of the Sandstone Trail or the Ceiriog or Llangollen Valleys. Snowdonia is a pretty drive of approximately an hour.
Cyclists can enjoy many cycle tracks and the popular Cheshire Cycleway is nearby.
Local National Trust properties Erddig and Chirk Castle are less than 40 mins away. Both are excellent days out. For garden enthusiasts there is the award winning Grosvenor Garden Centre, and Stapeley Water Gardens. The Dorothy Clive garden nr Nantwich is well worth a visit.
Golfers are well served with De Vere Carden Park and it's two golf courses only three miles away. Booking is advisable for the Jack Niklaus Course, others may prefer to be pampered in the day spa at the same venue.

"The most relaxing cottage we have ever stayed at - it was just perfect!"
We were only on a two night flying visit to the area but we loved staying at The Annexe. It's the best equipped cottage we have ever stayed at and it was a true delight to return to such a relaxed and comfortable haven each evening after busy days out. We had a lovely warm welcome from the owner who instantly made us all feel at home. Even our chocolate Lab was delighted with the welcome he received and happily settled into the cottage as if he had always lived there! I would very much recommend The Annexe and we will all definitely be returning as soon as we possibly can!
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We enjoyed meeting you both and your lovely dog. We would be delighted to welcome you on a return visit.
A previous reviewer mentioned that they didn't have access to WiFi. I'm not sure why this was the case as the WiFi code is displayed in several places and I'm not aware of any connection problems for iPads and smartphones.

"Excellent accommodation with home from home comforts"
Excellent property, every comfort you could require. Lovely welcome pack. Close enough to Chester and all the amenities needed but also nice to be in a peaceful rural location with all that offers. Owner very friendly and helpful, down to having the use of their PC and allowing a mid-week 3 day stay. As a single female traveller I could not have asked for more, would highly recommend this property but not when I want to stay in it again! Ideally need your own transport.
We are delighted you enjoyed your stay with us and that you found everything to your liking. I shall clear the diary when you wish to return!!

The cottage has a very homely feel and is fully equipt with many unexpected extras. Its beautifully decorated and furnished/equipt to a very high standard. Very friendly owners make it a pleasure to stay here and we would happily stay here again if re visiting the area.
Thank you Lynda, it was lovely to have you staying and I'm delighted the annexe met with your satisfaction.
