“It would be hard to find a better place to stay.”
Reviewed 12 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

I spent a week with Jackie and Ray while on a course nearby. The cottages were impeccable, with everything you could possibly need. Jackie and Ray were the perfect hosts and were able to assist me with sightseeing in Chester. A great pub down the road and walks in the hills from your doorstep. Congratulations on winning ‘Self Catering Provider of the Year 2016’ you deserve it.

“Outstanding self-catering cottage in wonderful location”
Reviewed 28 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Have just returned from a wonderful four days in this delightful self-contained cottage. It was extremely well equipped and very comfortable. Our two labradors enjoyed the lengthily walks on the Sandstone Trail which is right on the doorstep. Jackie and Ray are great hosts and throughly deserved the award for best self-catering which they won whilst we were there. Would hope to be back.

“A wonderfull cottage which add memories to a beautiful place.”
Reviewed 13 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I had a week staying in this beaytifull house. The facilities and decoration of it are all above standard but what makes it unique is the owner's hospitality and friendly approachment. Felt like home and wellcomed and moreover present when needed. Thanks Rey it wil be nice to go back at some time. Not to mention that it is an excellent place to be if you live in Athens Greece and you love traditional country destinations.

“Baker's cottage: beautiful”
Reviewed 7 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I can't really recommend Baker's Cottage highly enough. It's beautifully fitted out, catering for your every need. Little touches like fresh flowers and home-produced honey really added to our enjoyment of the weekend. It's warm, cosy and comfortable, within easy walking distance of good pubs and local walks. We cooked in the lovely kitchen, and it had every utensil we needed (rare I find, in a self catering cottage!). Jackie and Ray are so friendly and welcoming. We would love to return and think you should stay there too!

“Really enjoyable stay at The Bakery!”
Reviewed 1 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

person found this review helpful

We love this cottage! It is comfy, clean, spacious and came with dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, and even a well stocked first aid kit! The cottage has a very neat wood burner. There is also plenty of firewood and kindling for our use, which came in very handy as it got more autumnal during our stay.

On arrival, we found a vase of freshly cut flowers on the dining table to welcome us. There was milk in the fridge and a basket of apples and oranges. We also found for our use a jar of their locally produced honey, lots of fresh herbs and fresh eggs. Such thoughtful gestures have definitely set this holiday cottage apart from so many others we have had stayed in.

We love Jackie and Ray's attention to details in order to ensure their guests have a relaxing stay. I love the fluffy towels, contemporary walk-in shower, toiletries and comfy bed. He likes to play with the wood burner and loves the parking space amidst attractive garden setting for his toy.

During our stay, we visited some very beautiful and interesting places: Chester (about 20minutes drive to the park and ride), Tarporley, Nantwich, Llangollen (steam train and pub lunch by the river).

If we ever visit the region again, without doubt The Bakery is where we would want to stay again. Thanks Jackie and Ray for making our holiday very enjoyable!

“Absolutely Immaculate”
Reviewed 28 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

people found this review helpful

Without doubt, Baker's Cottage, one of two Sandstone Trail Cottages, is best cottage we have stayed in………and we’ve stayed in quite a few over the years. The quality of the refurbishment and attention to detail is second to none. No expense has been spared. The solid oak furniture, stairs and bedroom floor sing out! The cottage is absolutely immaculate. Fresh flowers, fresh fruit, and a little window ledge herb garden are lovely touches.
The kitchen is fully fitted with dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer. The utensils and crockery are first rate. High speed internet – 45,000 download – is available.
There is a private parking space for your toy, and a beautiful little garden to the front of the property. There is also a lock up shed for bicycles and BBQ equipment. Logs are provided for the wood burner. There is even a Bose Bluetooth loudspeaker to use with your smartphone!

“Mr & Mrs”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I booked our stay as Sandstone cottages as a present for my husbands 30th birthday treat. We can certainly say we had a fantastic time and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Our accommodation was beautiful, clean , comfortable and cosy set within the stunning and peaceful country side.

We couldn't wish for more friendly hosts - from the moment we arrived we were greeted with a welcome and nothing was too much trouble.

We particular enjoyed collecting fresh eggs from the hens and eating them for our breakfast. Our two year old son thought this was brilliant! These little touches were very much appreciated.

They made our break extra special by having such a kind and caring attitude.

Thank you for having us! We would love to come back one day.

Lucy, Dan & Benjamin
