Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. It was quiet yet close to many amenities - only 10 minutes train ride from Chester. Ideal for our family as the two sets of bedrooms were at each end of the building allowing some privacy (and peace!). Dec 2012.
  2. The building is according to british standards bove average. The landlord is pleasant 2012.
  3. The property was extremely comfortably and excellently located for a quiet stay yet only 5 minutes from the M56 making it on eminent to visit the sites of Chester, Manchester, Liverpool and North Wales which were all within a maximum of one hours drive away. The owners were superb and dealt swiftly with any initial queries we had, even did some washing for us on the only occasion that the washing machine broke down. Overall the cottage was super comfortable and a real home from home. We would seriously consider another stay there soon. June 2012.
  4. Property was outstanding and accommodated 6 adults comfortably. Everything has been thought of. Can recommend the local pub as the staff/food were always welcoming. May 2012.
  5. Fantastic property in a nice peacful setting. Good pub serving good food and even better drink ! Master bedroom is stunning, a shame my parents laid claim to it ! An excellent base with lots to see and all within a reasonable distance. We took in Chester,Liverpool, Manchester and some local attractions too and we were only there for a week ! All in all a great part of the UK to visit made all the better when you are staying in a quality cottage. April 2012.
  6. The property was clean, beautiful and comfortable, actually excellent. We were able to relax during our holiday, the good thing is during our holiday weather was very nice as unusual at the North West. Thank you for giving us the excellent time to the owner and your company. March 2012.
  7. Great property. Ideal for Chester and Manchester. Feb 2012.
  8. The property was lovely (although washing machine was ’tricky’ and would have been nice to state that cot bedding wasn’t provided). You felt like you were in the middle of nowhere but actually weren’t far from the village/town. We found it a great location to get to Liverpool as well (the Albert Dock area is worth a visit). Log burner a great plus, especially, if like us you stayed in the property in the ’depths of winter’. We are already considering staying again at The Old Stables. Feb 2012.
  9. Fantastic cottage, brilliant location for Cheshire Oaks shopping, lovely Chinese down in village. The cottage itself if very spacious, master bedroom amazing!! Kitchen was great and we used it ALOT! Jan 2012.
  10. Fabulous barn conversion, very well thought out and equipped. 10 minutes drive to most of the main attractions in the area. Jan 2012.
  11. Would highly recommend The Old Stables for a relaxing break, in a very clean and comfortable property with lots of character. Oct 2011.
  12. Beautiful accommodation. A Relaxing haven to return to in the evenings with lots to do in the area. Oct 2011.
  13. Stunning accommodation with everything we needed for our break. May 2011.
  14. Excellent location for all the attractions of Chester and Liverpool is not far away. The accommodation is comfortable, clean,p lenty of space, and in a nice quiet village. The amenities of the cottage are excellent. April 2011.
  15. It is out of this world, a dream stay. Dec 2010.
  16. The Old Stables is one of the best properties we have rented. Clean and tidy. Nov 2010.
  17. Good size for 6 adults. May 2010.
  18. Beautifully refurbished - it’s the first time we’ve found somewhere as good in real life as on the photos! Dec 2009.
