    Very cosy & comfortable. 2 good bedrooms with en suites. Walking from the property not ideal. Good country views.

    Watermill cottage is located on a farm next to a river with lovely views. There is a fence surrounding the property with a nice patio area for alfresco dining. We received a warm welcome from Heather who provided us with tea, coffee, sugar and milk and an added bonus of a bottle of wine and chocolates. The location was great being only a few miles from lots of great places to visit and walk including Chester, Delamere Forest and the Sandstone Trail. The cottage itself is finished to a high standard and has everything you could possibly need. We found it very warm and cosy and everywhere was spotlessly clean. My one criticism would be the double bed is in need of a new mattress but apart from that we had a wonderful week.

    Nice and clean cottage in a peaceful location. Not much in the way of local amenities although I understand the nearby pub which appears to have undergone substantial refurbishment should be open soon. Like some other people have noted, we found the double bed to be rather uncomfortable. It probably needs a better mattress and / or base. On the whole it's a nice property and the owner was friendly and helpful.

    Lovely holiday cottage , lovely people, great location . Matter of opinion but beds were hard , sofa was hard which after a long day was slightly disappointing. Other than that great

    A warm welcome given by Heather. A bottle of milk in the fridge plus wine & chocolates to start our 4 night stay. Cottage was clean in all aspects, well equipped & in a lovely rural setting by a stream. Quiet location even though being sited on a working dairy farm. Short drive to both Chester & Liverpool. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay & would certainly not hesitate to book again if staying in the area

    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.
