    Smithy Farm sleeping up to 7 guests

    Traditional family farmhouse with games room and hot tub, Manley Mere with adventure trail, sailing and kayaking close by.
    This 18th century, semi-detached holiday farmhouse is located in the quiet village of Dunham-on-the-Hill, just 6 miles from the historic city of Chester. The village is mentioned in the Domesday Book and has a café and pubs. A wider range of amenities can be found in nearby Helsby or the market town of Frodsham (market on Thursdays). Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet Village is within easy driving distance. The accommodation is well proportioned and combines original features including a fantastic outdoor covered hot tub and games room. With such great facilities on site it is tempting to just stay home and relax, but with so much to see and do in the area its just not an option. Smithy Farm offers something for everyone. Walkers and cyclists will enjoy exploring the beautiful Cheshire countryside, walks include Helsby Hill and quarry walks, whilst those who prefer a city landscape are ideally placed for commuting into Liverpool and Manchester. There is also a bus service from the village into Chester. There are lots of local attractions for families including Chester Zoo, Blue Planet Aquarium and Delamere Forest’s Go Ape adventure. Other activities available locally include numerous fisheries, golf (Helsby), and horse riding. Watersports fans will enjoy Manley Mere which offers windsurfing, sailing and kayaking as well as having an adventure trail. Cheshire is also a food lovers paradise with lots of great restaurants and pubs nearby including Marco Pierre White’s restaurant, which is less than 6 miles from the village. Shop 2 ½ miles, pub and restaurant ¼ mile.

    Helen – 14 Nov 2018
    "Absolutely perfect location for an active weekend away. With Delamere Forest on the doorstep and stones throw from Cheshire Oaks shopping outlet everyone was catered for. The farm was perfect, very homely. We were made to feel very welcome and were sad to leave"
    Jane – 12 Nov 2018
    "Enjoyes every minute. Victoria very helpful. Food in the fridge plus tea, coffee, biscuits etc a lovely touch."
    Aileen – 13 Jun 2018
    "We had a lovely stay and felt very welcome. The house met all our needs and was in a great location. We’ll definitely be returning."
    Sarah – 2 Jun 2018
    "Fabulous cottage with hot tub and garden in an excellent location. The owner was very friendly and welcoming.The only let down was the cleanliness of the cottage, could do with a deep clean."
    HUTTON – 24 May 2018
    "This is a lovely, quirky cottage. It is very spacious and well equipped, with lovely touches like tea and biscuits left for you. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful. The hot tub and pool table were a complete hit with my family, as was the peaceful location of the cottage in a lovely village. The let down for me was that the bathrooms were very poor - the showers had no power and the water was lukewarm at best. Trying to get your head under the shower to wash your hair was almost impossible! The taps were dripping, and the sealant round the baths in both bathrooms needed replacing. If these issues were resolved I wouldn't hesitate to return as everything else about the cottage was excellent."
    Debbie – 8 May 2018
    "Throughly enjoyed our family break in Smithy Farm. The house is full of character, very spacious and was perfect for our family - 4 adults & 1 toddler. The hot tub is definitely an added bonus and was used everyday!Thanks to Victoria for all your help & accommodating us. The location is ideal for visiting local attractions like Chester Zoo, The Ice cream Factory and all the lovely towns.The 4 bedrooms were spacious, the 2 living-rooms were perfect for our family and great big kitchen with everything you need!...just mind your head on the beans in s few of the rooms. Highly recommend this holiday home and we will definitely be visiting here again."
    Emma – 28 Apr 2018
    "Lovely farm house , really friendly greeting"
    Jackie – 23 Apr 2018
    "Had a lovely stay with the family. Plenty of room, beds really comfy, lots of extras on arrival in the kitchen were greatly appreciated. Ideally situated for places of interest. Hot tub was perfect and in a covered area so weather not a problem. Would definitely stay again and recommend it to others"
    Andrew – 18 Apr 2018
    "We had a lovely time, Vicky is a helpful and welcoming host. There is plenty of room for 6 people, the cottage is well equipped, the location is quiet but with great access to Chester, Liverpool, and the hot tub is great."
    Linsey – 7 Apr 2018
    "We had a great week at smithy farm, it was a perfect getaway with so much space, 4 adults and 4 children were able to be accommodated easily. Victoria was lovely and very helpful. It's close to lots of different attractions and the pubs locally were great too"
    Kerry – 2 Mar 2018
    "Fantastic welcome clean and very spacious pretty area we are definitely going to return we have a disabled son and the owners made sure we had every thing we needed could not ask for better care and service would definitely recommend this property"
    Esther – 18 Feb 2018
    "Upon arrival the owner was very friendly and showed us around the property, answering any questions we had. The cottage was beautifully clean, spacious, warm and full of character. Everything we needed was provided and it was lovely to find milk in the fridge, tea, coffee and biscuits on arrival. Smithy Farm is situated on a quiet village road but just 1 min from the main road meaning you could get around really easily. The local Chinese is lovely and deliver promptly and the local pub grub was excellent value for money. Didn’t want our holiday to end and will definitely be returning to Smithy Farm in the future!"
    Shirley – 24 Jan 2018
    "We had a lovely warm welcome when we arrived it was a nice surprise weekend for my Son's 21st Birthday he was very surprised and he loved every second of it, so did the rest of the family,"
    SARAH – 21 Jan 2018
    "I stayed here with my husband and 2 other couples. The amount of space was perfect as it meant you could all have your own space or be together whenever you wanted. It felt like a home from home, very comfortable and homely, plenty of amenities. Only draw back were the showers, they are in serious need of upgrading especially after being in the tub, a good shower is needed to get the chlorine off. Overall, a fantastic weekend away with friends in a beautiful location. Happy customer."
