Me and my Partner recently stayed at the Courtyard Cheshire in the Loft - a 1 bedroom cottage, for two nights midweek. From the moment we entered the cottage we were blown away! The cottage was beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Jill and Roger were excellent hosts and couldn't be anymore welcoming. We had a slight issue with...

The Cheshire Courtyard is a collection of small cottages that have been tastefully converted from a very old farm yard. I chose to stay because I was fed up with hotel rooms and wanted to try something different. Based on posts here it seemed to be the sort of place that I’d like. Self-catering is, for me, no problem as...

I had the honor of staying with Jill and Roger for a long weekend in January. The Courtyard is lovely with great charm and plenty of quiet. A short walk is perfect for the corner pub or down the main lane for Indian food. Chester is only a short drive or 8 minute commute via train. Jill and Roger have...

This was our 3rd visit to The Courtyard. We were hoping to book one of the 2 bedroomed cottages but they were occupied which wasn't surprising as this was done at the last minute.
