Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We would definitely recommend Ashcroft Barn. We received a warm welcome from the owner on collecting the keys. The accommodation was fantastic, very clean, warm and comfortable and plenty of towels. This was a far better alternative for us than staying in a hotel as we put the kids to bed upstairs and we could watch TV downstairs without them being disturbed Ashcroft Barn is so close for everything that we had planned to do during our stay. Visiting the Blue Aquarium and Cheshire Oaks (well worth a visit). Chester Zoo (definitely worth a visit!!) and a day in Chester (park and ride at Chester Zoo easiest way to get into Chester). All of these are only 10 - 15 minutes’ drive away. We would like to visit Chester again and would like to stop in Ashcroft Barn again. Nov 2012.
  2. Excellent location for visits to Chester and it’s numerous real ale pubs. Also good access to north Wales, offering good walking, great scenery and plenty of historic ruins. Although close to the end of the M56 the location is well shielded by trees and is deceptively quiet, giving the impression of being remote but with the advantage of great road access. July 2012.
  3. Beautiful converted barn, 1 bedroom sleeps 3 (double and single beds) plus a couple of armchairs, bedside table and lamp etc. Good sized toilet and shower, loads of towels. Downstairs, open plan living/dining/kitchen with kettle, combo microwave, gas cooker/grill fridge and separate freezer and all the pots and pans etc you could need. Loads of space with two good sofas, one of which converts to a double bed for 2 more. But that is not all, tea, coffee, milk and sugar on arrival plus toilet rolls, kitchen roll, foil, cleaning materials. This really is a home from home. Most places you do not expect to be able to walk in and have a cuppa without even going to the shop first. Superb! June 2012.
  4. This is a very spacious and comfortable cottage with quality fittings throughout. The bedroom is enormous with double and single beds, 2 armchairs and a settee with lots of floorspace as well. There is even a French window and balcony overlooking a small pool. The dawn chorus is amazing. To put the icing on the cake the owners are very welcoming and friendly. The cottage is easy to find if you remember that it is not in Mollington which is a couple of miles away on the other side of the dual carriageway. It is ideal for Chester and Cheshire Oaks Outlet also 6 mins. I recommend this cottage without reservation and hope to return again in August. May 2012.
  5. Nicely decorated and very well located for visitig the local area. April 2012.
  6. Really lovely property in a good location. Really cosy and lovely clean interior. Do make sure you bring maps of the area because we got lost a few times! Overall a really great holiday. Feb 2012.
