    A good place for a quiet retreat. We appreciated very much the complete household equipment. No need to bring your own. It facilitates an easy and comfortable start. Thank you, Heather!

    We had an excellent stay at Watermill Cottage. Everything was clean and tidy and well presented.The owner was friendly and not far away if we needed anything.There is small river outside the property and we were lucky enough to spot a Kingfisher. There are lots of things to do within close proximity to the cottage such as Chester Zoo, Blue Planet Aquarium, Cheshire Oaks, Ice Cream farm and a bit further afield is Gulliver World Resort. We also found a brilliant play area for the children in Christleton (about 3 minutes drive away). There is a Skate park, sand play with a digger, swings and slide etc. It was very clean and well kept up to. An excellent cottage in a beautiful location, close to all local amenities. Who could ask for anything more?

    Brilliant, spacious cottage with a very private and enclosed garden. Lounge overlooks River Gowy Close to Beeston Castle and views are gorgeous. Maybe open up the path to the tow path?

    We have stayed at many self-catering properties, both in the UK and abroad, and so far this has been the best. Nothing was to much trouble, help was on hand if we needed it, the cottage contained everything you would need. Having two bathrooms was a bonus, no queues in the morning. The wine and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch. Would highly recommend this cottage.

    We received a very warm welcome at Watermill Cottage, but at no time did we feel that our privacy was intruded. The interior of the cottage is perfect in every respect. The open plan kitchen and lounge provides a good communal space with lovely views to the river and meadows. The en-suite bathrooms have great facilities and the bedrooms are sufficiently spaced apart to allow two couples some individual space. Outside there are open views allowing access to wildlife and the constant movement of cattle.
