    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."
    Bernard – 22 Sep 2018
    "I really enjoyed my stay at the old stables. The owner was very friendly and helpful. I would stay there again."
    Ruth – 2 Sep 2018
    "Had a very enjoyable week in this spacious and well-equipped property - all on one level once you've climbed the outside staircase. Four bedrooms, two shower rooms and a bath made for a comfortable and relaxing stay for six adults. There's plenty of parking and far-reaching views. The location is rural, but all necessary amenities are within a mile or less. Highly recommended."
    Dianne – 17 Mar 2018
    "This was a great place for a family get together, we were very comfortable with plenty of space for us all and would definitely stay here again."
    Roger – 2 Mar 2018
    "Lovely place, felt right at home. Family of six and everyone enjoyed the stay, really comfy beds , nice and warm especially with log burner going. The owner Alistair was helpful but unobtrusive. We would recommend and definitely stay again if opportunity arrises."
