10 of us stayed in Dairy and Stable cottages for a week. The cottages were expensive at a cost of nearly £1500 perhaps that is why other than ours and one with workmen in all the rest were unoccupied from Monday to Friday and you can add 10% to that if you book through the agent the owner uses, I always thought that if you used an agent you paid them, what a cheek to get someone to work for you and get someone else to pay them. The cottages were spotlessly clean but need bringing into the twentieth century the toilets were a miss match of fittings close coupled handled on front flushes not working properly could not be flushed with seat upright, the Wi-Fi could not be detected on my lap-top only one called neil and one BT obviously neither could be used, the tv was as wide front to back as across the front the c/d player was so old it had a V H S player incorporated in it, the microwave in stable did not work, if you go to the pub you expect to pay to play pool but not when you've paid so much for the cottage, even 50p is 50p to much, when we arrived on the Friday afternoon the grandkids wanted to go into the pool it was lovely so warm even I could walk straight into it by Tuesday when the hen parties had gone home and the thermostat had been turned down it took me 10 minutes to get in, at the back of our cottages was a piece of grass between ours and other cottages it could have been so good for the grandkids to kick a ball about but the grass was knee deep. The fishing was good with carp to 8lb but on a family holiday you cant go fishing every day. This was a good holiday because of the company.
The cottages were ok but could be so much better with some of the rent spent on them.

We stayed in Stable cottage for ten nights. We wanted a place close to Chester to visit family and friends. We were happy with the location, house and service. The house was a good size for a base, safe, warm, clean and we had wifi. Staff are friendly and welcoming. Pool was clean and an added bonus to our stay. Would recommend a stay here to family and friends. We would stay again.
