We stayed at Stonehouse Farm on the spare of the moment. We had obtained last minute tickets for a concert in nearby Delamere Forrest.
Our stay was perfect; Steve and Whendie were terrific hosts and the cooked breakfast was lovely.
This is a very peaceful location surrounded by wonderful Cheshire contryside. Howver, a leisurely 15 minute walk takes you to the village where there is a railway station for trains running to neighbouring villages as well as Chester, Manchester and Liverpool (changing at Chester). That village also boasts a very decent gastro-pub where the food and wine list is excellent.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Stonehouse Farm, and although we initially stumbled across the accommodation, without a doubt we will be staying there again. Steve and Whendie are friendly hospitable hosts who made us extremely welcome.
The following weekend we stayed at the Hilton in Manchester - impersonal and corporate. And the breakfast wasn't a patch on what we enjoyed at Stonehouse Farm.
