Once again, the cottage didn't disappoint . Very quiet and wonderfully relaxing . Well be back soon . Thanks Bona
This is a beautiful modern barn conversion with so much space . Unbelievably priced ! The only negative was a noisy fridge which didn't chill well
spacious accommodation in a lovely setting with beautiful views of Cheshire countryside. Within walking distance of local pubs, restaurants and shops and easily accessible for public/private transport
I stayed at the barn during a weekend in August with family. (3 adults and 3 children under 6). A good sized barn, very clean and well presented interior. Plenty of room for us all, we did take 2 extra airbeds with as the beds provided are two doubles and 2 singles. The sofa bed was a little uncomfortable, however the main bed upstairs was comfy.
After reading the reviews about the freezer and DVD player, I requested these prior to our arrival and they were all ready for us when we arrived. The family sized freezer is in the garage. The fridge located in the kitchen needs replacing; it does not keep your food cold. This was demonstrated by the curdled milk left in the fridge for our arrival that was still in date. Not only does it not keep your food cold it is also loud, which makes it difficult to sleep at night if you are in the lounge area sleeping.
The barn is in a great location to explore surrounding areas.
I was very disappointed with the outside space. We took a couple of balls and bats etc. for the kids to have a run around in the paddock. One of the reasons we chose this property. Unfortunately, the grassed area has not been maintained, the grass was too long for the kids to run about in without them getting scratched legs, it also had nettles at the entrance and the perimeter and what looked like an area where a fire had once been. This meant we had to nurse nettle stings and made it unusable despite the occupants in the main property asking us if the kids could use the paddock to run about on and not the court yard area. A completely reasonable request if the grassed area could be used! Such a shame as just cutting the grass would have solved everyone's problem, add a slide and a climbing frame and it would be perfect.
The overall standard of the property is high, there is everything you need and more for a stay in the barn and if not a co-op 5 minute walk away. I agree with the previous comment about oven instructions, the information folder could benefit from this. The shower is not the best as the pressure is low and goes very hot and very cold in an instance so you have to be careful you don't get scolded, especially when the kids are in it.
The owner got back to me very quickly with all my enquires during the booking and fulfilled all my requests, if only I had asked for the grass to be cut.

Lovely accommodation, the owner left simple instructions so nobody need to be bothered from either party, plenty to do in the area for the kids, Chester Zoo and Blue planet aquarium were very good and for the adults a little trip to Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Park. Overall very impressed would definitely recommend
