    We needed to take my mam , dad and their dog Ben on a holiday break that was within an hours drive of Manchester.My mam has arthritis , my dad has dementia ,limited mobility needing to use a wheel chair for longer distances .Finally, their dog cannot be let off the lead as he runs away and may not come back !!!! Simon and Julie were their to greet us as we arrived ; they couldn't have been more helpful !!! The cottage both inside and out together with the grounds and surroundings were actually better than the pictures on the website could show! The fixtures,fittings,equipment in the cottage were second to none.But most importantly,this was not just a holiday cottage, Julie had been meticulous in making this cottage into a home from home. The details, the history, the giant who had lived there, the atmosphere made the cottage magical! To top it all off, the beautiful large garden was fully enclosed .Ben the dog was able to run freely ,spending time watching the two ponies in the padlock next door while we had our binoculars watching the planes coming into land at the local airport ! And no,the planes weren't very noisy,were infrequent and watching them was quite exiting,particularly the small propeller planes !!! We didn't leave the village for the four days we were there.We didn't need to. This was about giving my mam and dad a very special holiday experience they thought they may never have again. This holiday was fare beyond our expectations !!!!!!! Thank you to Julie and Simon From David, Paul ,Ron, Joan and Ben the dog

    Well what can we say. We just had the best week ever @ the childe of Hale cottage. Such a lovely village with a lovely pub & bistro close by. The cottage itself was spotless and my family especially my children loved it along with our dog Elsa. Julie & Simon the owners were brilliant and couldn’t be any more helpful. We will certainly be back to see lovely Hale again.

    The cottage was stunning and you can actually feel the history in it which I loved. The location of the cottage is absolutely perfect for a peaceful getaway, the garden is beautiful and the ponies and the chickens just at the back were the icing on the cake for my two Grandchildren. Bev who was looking after the cottage for Julie and Simon was so lovely and had even baked us some lovely little cakes for our arrival. We will definitely be booking the cottage again.

    Lovely cottage owners very friendly and helpful fantastic garden for our dogs Could do with more wine glasses(only one available)and a non stick frying pan I am being really picky and it's only meant as a suggestion

    What a fantastic little place! We loved it...the cottage is beautiful and Hale itself is a lovely little village. We had a brilliant week here and the owners are very friendly and attentive.

    The cottage lives up to all the photographs. It really is a classic 'Olde Worlde' thatched cottage. Very comfortable but beware the low doorways to the downstairs bedroom and the dining room. Excellent front and rear gardens so weather permitting sitting out is a pleasure. It's quite close to Liverpool Airport and there is a morning and evening peak of half a dozen flights which added to our interest. Well equipped and would recommend this cottage very highly.

    Third visit to this lovely peaceful cottage. Very dog friendly with a large enclosed wrap-around garden; well equipped kitchen, small but comfortable dining room and cosy lounge with a great wood burner. Two pubs within a couple of minutes walk; Co-op, Chinese, chip shop etc within a couple of minutes drive. Only downside is the poor wi-fi which is good for searching but nothing more. Quiet village with many lovely old thatched cottages, a large park and enclosed dog run, and a great round walk down to the River Mersey which takes up to an hour. Half hour drive to Chester, not much more into Wales. Bus stop for Liverpool 30 seconds walk. Fully recommended, will be back.

    Beautiful, quirky and cosy cottage. Great location near the pub for great food, and near the bus stop for frequent trips to Liverpool! Owners are friendly and nearby if you need them. Comfy beds, clean and warm, couldn't fault it. Liverpool is a fab city, lots to do and lots of it free. Recommend a visit to the Imagine exhibition about John and Yolo at the Liverpool life museum.

    The cottage was so nice, considering it was pet friendly it was immaculate, normally pet friendly means smelly. Julie and Simon was so friendly, and gave us everything we needed and more! Couldn’t recommend enough. If you have little children they have 2 ponies on the back garden which they let your children groom etc

    A beautiful cottage in a lovely village.. All creating a wonderfully relaxed atmosphere.. And a good garden for the dogs too! I definitely recommend a visit to anyone thinking they'd like to stay here!

    I stayed with my husband our baby and two dogs. The cottage was in a central location with private off road parking in a beautiful setting and was well kept and lovely and warm! We all had a fantastic stay! Cannot recommend enough! Thank you.

    We stayed at the cottage as a family of 3 with our 2 dogs. It is a very spacious cottage with a lovely feel. I can honestly say that the pictures do not do it justice. It was perfect, everything in the cottage is very good quality and the beds were very comfortable. The garden too was also perfect for our dogs with a large enclosed wrap around garden. The village its self has 2 dog friendly pubs. The Childe of Hale pub is less than 5 minutes away and you can eat in the bar area with your dogs. There is also a general store and a post office and some lovely walks in the area. I would definitely recommend this cottage. Finally, Simon and Julie are excellent hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Hats off to you

    Just had a lovely week in this cottage with our dog. Lovely and warm with a large log burner too. Nice walks from the cottage and a nice park nearby. We had snow as well which the dog loved. Julie and Simon were great hosts too.

    First time at cottage and loved it...spacious, comfortable and cosy with wood burner and free wood. Will definitely go again one summer when can enjoy the enclosed dog friendly garden and local walks. Easy access into Liverpool and Manchester and lots to see and do. Great.
