    Confirmed guest – 14 Jan 2020
    "Very happy, would recommend to any body to stay here it is a fantastic place to stay"
    Carys – 13 Jan 2020
    "We were two families staying at The Old Stables and it worked perfectly for us - the bedrooms and bathroom are split equally at each end of the building with the living area/kitchen in the middle so it was great. Really high standard of equipment, furnishings, etc. Great location in a quiet village and just a short drive into Chester. Our New Year holiday was brilliant, would definitely go back."
    Michelle – 10 Dec 2019
    "2nd visit and loved it just as much"
    Bebe – 7 Nov 2019
    "Very pleased with all facilities could not have asked for more, everyone enjoyed the time we had and would definitely recommend staying again."
    Rebecca – 7 Nov 2019
    "We had a wonderful week staying in The Old Stables and would definitely stay again in the future."
    Graham – 29 Oct 2019
    "The Old Stables was exactly as described and provided an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area and meeting up with our daughter who is studying at Chester University. Accommodation is spacious yet still comfortable and cosy with easy access just a few hundred meters from main roads and plenty of parking. The owners were very friendly, taking the trouble to check that we had all that we needed and even donating some fresh eggs. The local pub is just a 5 mins walk and provided good Sunday lunch and a meeting venue for drinks with friends."
    Katherine – 27 Aug 2019
    "We absolutely loved The Old Stables. It was perfectly situated for us; easily accessible from the motorway and Manchester airport, village amenities very close, while feeling you were in the middle of the countryside.A well laid out space, and by having the living area split the bedrooms, so that two were one side and two the other, it makes it ideal for friends sharing.We loved the wood burning stove, and such a comfortable space.Looking forward to a return visit!"
    Vicki – 10 Aug 2019
    "Great base for all sorts of activities, ideal for two families sharing.would recommend and possibly go again!"
    Steven – 23 Jul 2019
    "We stayed for a week and found the The Old Stables very spacious, immaculately clean and perfectly located for access to Liverpool and Chester. Delamere forest is also very close by with a good set up for the kids (Gruffalo walk)The hosts were easy to communicate with and very friendly and helpful when this was required."
    Alistair – 13 Jul 2019
    "Cottage requires updating and a good clean. Showers require re grouting, new mattresses and cover required, sofas terribly uncomfortable and dinning table bent !! Tv flickers on most channels. Really not up to standard! Kitchen utensils old and even rusty!"
    Oliver – 16 Jun 2019
    "Cottage had the appearance that it had not been thoroughly cleaned. There were several obvious cobwebs. The bin in one shower room had not been emptied and the bin in the kitchen had rubbish under the bin liner. The oven was very greasy as were the oven trays. Some of the crockery was tired looking and chipped. Both shower cubicles need a complete refurbishment."
    Janine – 27 Mar 2019
    "We went for a hen do the owners were very friendly and even allowed us to rent a hot tub on there grounds the house was beautiful and really easy to find not far from the motorway! It’s 15 mins away from Chester town centre, I would 100% stop there again overall stay superb."
    Ruth – 10 Dec 2018
    "Excellent location and home for a friends weekend away. Fabulous local pubs. Easy access into Chester Christmas markets (Taxi was £15 each way). Took all our food and drink so didn’t need to use shops."
    James – 3 Nov 2018
    "Great accommodation with all you need for a family get together. Warm and cosy with great space. Plenty of cooking facilities and a Tesco and pubs all within a short distance. The owners checked we were ok and we had a lovely Halloween party and decoration up in the beams which was great for the young childrens. Certainly will use again."
