Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.

Idyllic cottage for total relaxation
The cottage is welcoming and homely with everything you need and more. The welcome hamper had a lovely selection, the cheese and Prosecco were enjoyed on the patio. The outside space is totally relaxing whether in the hot tub or watching the Alpacas. A definite highlight. We all commented on the very comfy beds and sheets. Mike and Jayne have thought of everything that made our stay perfect. I would highly recommend this cottage and look forward to staying again.

Excellent
What beautiful cottage, couldn't fault the cottage or the grounds. A lovely welcome from the owners and a welcome basket was waiting for us in a large well equipped kitchen. In the welcome basket there was a bottle of prosseco which was enjoyed in the large hot tub. The Alpacas where very friendly and would walk over when we where in the hot tub. 3 large bedrooms with very comfortable beds. I would highly recommend this cottage and we wil, return in the future.

Fabulous cottage in the Cheshire countryside
Curlew Cottage is a beautiful cottage close to Knutsford in the beautiful Cheshire countryside. Conveniently located for Liverpool, Chester and Manchester, the cottage is tastefully furnished and very well equipped with all home comforts. The owners, Mike and Jayne, live in the adjacent property and whilst 'on hand' they welcomed us to the property and then left us to enjoy the accommodation. There are numerous superb 'dining pubs' within a 5 mile circumference - we especially enjoyed The Dog at Over Peover and the Dun Cow at Olerton. We highly recommend this property and hope to return in the future.

Immaculate Country Cottage in the Heart of Cheshire
The owners of this cottage have thought of everything. An immaculately presented rural cottage set in the heart of the Cheshire countryside with easy reach to amenities in the historical Knutsford Town close by and a good base for visiting Manchester, The Trafford Centre and Chester. A added bonus was the welcome basket and the Christmas decorations inside and pretty Christmas lights in the grounds. The cottage gave us a perfect mix of relaxation, with views over fields and the alpacas antics, combined with convenient access to road links (M6, M56) for visiting friends and family in the area. Thank you Jayne and Mike for you attention to detail, especially the lovely kitchen. We had a delightful stay and can't wait to return.

A weekend to remember
We had a wonderful stay at Curlew Cottage. Mike and Jayne made it really special. When we arrived myself and my friend had a massage from Jayne and it was honestly one of the best massages we have ever had. Mike and Jayne left a welcome hamper for us too which was a really nice touch and made us feel very welcome. We loved meeting Tom, Dick and Harry the resident alpacas and even got to feed them, I’ve wanted a pet alpaca ever since! The hot tub was lovely and we spent a lot of time in there despite the snow! The cottage is beautifully done out and the beds are comfortable and make for a great nights sleep. We had our 4 month old baby with us and a travel cot was provided which saved us bringing our own. We hope to return to Curlew Cottage in the future.

Perfect Country Retreat But Close To Town Attractions If Needed
Booked the cottage for our daughter and her friends to celebrate 18th birthdays - and it was ideal. Immaculate, plush furnishing, fully-stocked kitchen, toiletries and a tailor-made welcome hamper - Mike and Jayne really have thought of everything. The hot-tub was wonderful, there's a lovely gas BBQ, and the added attraction of Larmas to feed and watch was wonderful. Couldn't recommend Curlew Cottage more!

Beautiful Cottage, didn't want to leave!!
Absolutely stunning cottage and location. Our weekend away was a surprise for my Mum's birthday and it was perfect. The cottage had everything needed and much more!! Jayne and Mike we're absolutely lovely and couldn't do enough for us. We were sad to leave and would definitely stay again. We hope to see you both again at some point in 2017. Thank you :)

Wonderful weekend retreat!
We booked Curlew Cottage for two nights either side of a wedding, and the cottage really exceeded out expectations! The setting in the heart of the Cheshire countryside is absolutely beautiful, with fields of cows and alpacas on two sides, and the hot tub overlooking a lovely flowery garden! The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and the whole place is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped and Mike and Jayne also recommended some great local places for food. Mike and Jayne were exceptional hosts. My boyfriend and I were extremely grateful for Jayne picking us up from the station when we called to apologise for running late because we couldn't get a taxi!! We all enjoyed the welcome hamper (a lovely touch!) and the preheated hot tub, and really appreciated the tour on arrival. I really can't recommend this place enough!

Perfect Easter bank holiday
Wow!! Literally just returned home & couldn't wait to share our review on our long weekend at the gorgeous Curlew cottage! We received a lovely warm welcome from Mike and Jayne, they're a very friendly and helpful couple. They introduced them selves and immediately took us into the cottage and shown us where all appliances and gadgets were and how to use them (hot tub, docking station, boil tap etc). We were so pleasantly surprised with a plate of Easter cupcakes and a lovely bottle of red wine! Lovely touch. Once we were left on our own I had to take photos and just take in how beautiful and precisely homely the cottage was. Everything was here! There was nothing missed ! It was home from home. I had totally underestimated and overpacked. - everything from champagne glasses, to tin openers, to whisks and washing powder to toiletries and essentials! Everywhere was so clean and fresh and warm. Towels and robes were clean and fresh! Our highlight was the hot tub! Wow. We were in there for most of our time. The hot tub is so warm and clean and plenty of jets! The lights are a lovely touch at the evening. We were supposed to go with 6 of us and a dog, however only 4 of us could make it, the cottage was spacious and relaxing at the same time. Jayne and Mike even left out bits for the dog, bowl and bags - they do think of everything! If you needed them they're only a text or phone call away. We can't wait to return and we are already discussing when! Thank you again for everything and we can't wait to return.

A Beautiful Haven in the Heaven of Cheshire
I recently stayed with at Jayne & Mike’s beautiful Cottage, after I’d had a recommendation from a friend; and though I was certain after seeing the website that it would be a wonderful place to visit, I didn’t realise how welcoming, warm and homely Curlew would be! After a few exchanges online with Mike, I was booked in for a week- the communication was perfect and I never had to wait for a response- which was a great insight for the forthcoming stay. I arrived and was met by both Mike & Jayne, who showed me around the cottage- I was blown away by the immaculate gardens, space for cars, and cleanliness throughout. Every modern convenience is there, along with rapid wifi and a truly first-class kitchen; though I didn’t have the chance to entertain friends there, I have no doubt it would be the perfect place for parties and intimate dinners alike. Each evening I stayed at the cottage I found more ways to enjoy the area, with beautiful restaurants on the door step, grocery shops for anything I might have forgotten, and for when I was feeling cosy there were DVDs and (possibly one of my favourite things!) a Bang & Olufsen TV on which to watch them curled up in the living room. The bedrooms are beautiful and the house is decorated impeccably throughout- I actually had to find out the colour of the walls in the lounge from Jayne as I have since (attempted to!) replicate the feel of the space- it’s clear a huge amount of thought and effort has gone into the cottage. The worst time was inevitably when I had to leave, though I did so already looking forward to the next visit- and I must return again to use the hot tub in the front garden! Mike, Jayne, I can’t thank you enough for showing me such hospitality and warmth- as a southerner working in the north you made me feel like I had a real home from home, and I can’t wait to see you both again; for anyone thinking about staying here, please please do! It is not just a cottage, it is an absolute haven of peace and tranquility.
