“Stepped into the breach”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We had to find accommodation in an emergency and Angela & John were wonderful and stepped into the breach at very short notice. Lovely breakfast and really comfy bed. The actual farm is a short distance out of West Kirby (bit far to walk with luggage) but the owners helped out with that too. It was really nice to stay in a proper farmhouse B&B.

Stayed at China Plate Farm for a Weekend with my Family and will certainly come back again next time we are over. Angela and John are excellent friendly Hosts with lots of personality. Nothing is too much Trouble. Fabulous breakfast, lovely clean rooms and a great farmhouse feel. Thanks to you both - we will be back.

Room Tip: The room with the balcony.

My bro & I, plus friends, have all found Angela and John's welcome to their B & B on this working farm comfy, the pleasure of their company, and lots of helpful advice when my car was playing up and the windscreen broke ! Bro loved the delicious home-cooked, ample breakfast, and I found the balcony room a real joy last year. Shame we only stayed a night at China Plate Farm, but it certainly gave us the rest we needed. I would happily go back if in the area. And house martins swooping !

Room Tip: Balcony room is best en suite - a double.

Another great weekend at "my mate's" establishment; warm, cosy, with all the amenities (and more) that one could expect not only from a top class B & B but from a very good hotel!. Super internet access, great toiletries, VERY clean, and superb touches such as the nightcap facility, fridge and TV in sitting room (great if, like me, you are part of a "group" visit).

Breakfast is not just full but VERY full and obviates the need for lunch! Lovely garden and attentive and warm hosts who go out of their way to ensure you have everything (and more) that you need without being intrusive.

Room Tip: Ask for the Balcony Room, en suite and roomy.

This is a working farm, we pulled off the road and into the farmyard where the horses inspected us from their stables and where Angela came out to meet us. Our room was chintzy and comfortable with an en suite and also a small balcony overlooking a country garden. All the usual amenities are there and the 'full English' breakfast included their own delicious bacon, eggs and sausages. If we had the space and the inclination, we could have bought half a piggy to take home for the freezer.
Would stay there again.

Room Tip: Not all rooms have an en suite, so check first.

Home from home- China Plate Farm offers tranquility and easy access to all that West Kirby has to offer. You can be assured a warm welcome, comfortable bed and a breakfast that is both plentiful and delicious- home cooked and quality products. We had the balcony room and early morning prior to breakfast enjoyed a coffee outdoors whilst watching a horse being trained in the paddock. China Plate Farm has stables, and our hosts were more than happy for us to potter around admiring the horses and little piglets- they were happy for us to bring our two grandchildren who live in the area to come and see the farm animals.
The accommodation is not at all staged, it doesn't try to be something that it isn't- it is just comfortable and homely. Will most certainly be back
