"Beautiful Location, Amazing Cottage and Wonderful Hosts."

I found this cottage at the last minute, when another let had doubled booked me and i was desperate to find something quick. I emailed Raymond and got a very quick response saying that he could help me. WE were in the area for only a couple of days as we were competing in the cycling event Etape Cymru on the Sunday. Our stay at the cottage was a lovely relaxing, whilst at the cottage. We were made to feel very welcome and to find out that there was freshly baked Barra Brith waiting for us wasa mazing and a lovely touch. We will defenetly be back but for longer next time and get to fully relax.

We are pleased that you had a good time and we hope you will be able to come back again, we have lots of really good cycling routes and lots more to see and do, perhaps you fancy etape Cymru again next year.

"An excellent, stress free rural retreat. Highly recommended."

We stayed here during the last week in June 2013 for our 14 month olds first holiday and had a fabulous time. We were made to feel completely at home and the personal touches and kindness of Raymond & Helen were exceptional.
The cottage is located in an excellent tranquil location, with very easy access to North Wales and Chester and has everything that you could need.
We can't recomment this cottage highly enough and have alread passed on the details to several friends and family.

Hello

Many thanks for your kind comments. We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and your son enjoyed his first holiday.

Best wishes

Many thanks for yor kind comments. The heavy snow was certainly unseasonable. But hopefully it didn't stop you exploring north-east Wales. We are glad you enjoyed the peace and quiet, and made use of the log burner!

"A relaxing holiday but with all the essentials - can't wait to return!"

This is an outstanding property, at the end of a quite farm lane therefore no passing traffic! We had a few rides in the nearby forest (parking £4.50).

The accommodation is fantastic - very modern and fully equiped.

Our two teenage children loved the internet access which was great in the higher part of the master bedroom.

Chester was only 20 - 30 minutes away and would highly recommed Cheshire Oaks for all the bargains.

Cannot wait to return!!

Many thanks for your kind comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The pump track in the village is also good fun if you come again.
