We were greeted very nicely by Marina, who showed us round and made us a very welcome cup of tea with scones (very much needed) and we had a excellent and very peaceful night. Just wished our stay there could have been longer , but are already looking forward to returning Pete, Alison and Emma

Cosy but very comfortable and within walking distance of a few pubs and restaurants. Also close to the very pretty town of Chester. Our hostess was charming and... More

“The annex was ideal in particular for us because we didn't want to disturb everyone else staying at the house by coming back late from a night out! It can fit up to 3 people so a good idea for a group.”
