    We really enjoyed our short break at Watermill Cottage. It was very clean, well equipped and well set out with 2 en suites. We gave it a slightly lower mark for comfort only because the double bed was rather uncomfortable. We loved the view of the mill stream and cows from the lounge. It was also in a good position for travelling to Chester and Liverpool.

    Wonderful host, Heather. Made us feel at home & was flexible when we were late. Arrived very late after lots of road delays, so the was so disappointed that there wasn't a few basics such as tea, coffee, milk. Rather than providing Wine & Tin of biscuits spend money on these, plus ideally sugar, pack of butter, maybe bread. Some tin foil & cling film as part of kitchen basics would be usual?

    We would recommend this cottage to all, it is superbly appointed and cared for, on a working dairy farm where there is lots of animal life to observe. The owner greeted us warmly on arrival but did not interfere at all during our weeks stay, everything worked properly and all domestic appliances were in very good order, in fact looked almost new. We shall probably revisit in the near future.

    Clean, nicely decorated and lovely location by a small stream in a farm. Bottle of wine and box of chocolates on arrival were a nice touch. Definitely recommend if you're heading to Cheshire.

    What a wonderful find this cottage is, warm welcome, ticked every box we wanted. Lovely location on a dairy farm away from the noise and crowds, quite remote but well worth it. The wildlife just outside of your window is brilliant. Our visit was in March during a cold & wet spell, we would love to revisit later in the year.

    Watermill Cottage, location was spot on for my husband and I, rural, peaceful, clean, comfortable and warm. It a was a good location to be able to access a number of activities around the area. The wildlife seen from the comfort of the sofa was a real surprise. I would suggest that better quality mattresses be used as both my husband and I did not sleep particularly well on the current ones which is actually really important.

    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!
