Very nearly perfect
Took elderly parents away for a few days and we all enjoyed this apartment. Well appointed except for the oddness of the lack of matching and sufficient cutlery but comfy beds, cosy fire and very peaceful. Will definitely visit again

A cosy cottage on the Tatton Estate
Despite awful weather we enjoyed our stay at the ground floor Dairy Apartment 1 on the Tatton Estate. A cosy two bed roomed apartment was sufficiently spacious for our needs. Extra crockery would have been helpful but otherwise it was well equipped. Central heating was effective and a cosy log fire at night was lovely. The walks in the Tatton Estates are legion and situated on the Cheshire plain they are very easy. The gardens, to which we had free access, are a delight even in winter. The village of Knutsford is close by and has some great restaurants, shops and amenities.

Wonderful cottage on a beautiful location
A very nice renovated cottage on a beautiful location. Enough room for 3 adults. Cosy decoration. Close to the International Airport of Manchester, but the sound of airplanes did not bother us. Tatton Park is beautiful and you need to go there several times to see everything. Admission for the tenants of the cottage is free. Beautiful gardens too in Tatton Park. From the station of Altrincham you can go to the city of Manchester. Lots to see in this area.

We loved our stay at Dairy Cottage #1!
We rented Dairy Cottage #1 for a week during February 2013. We actually stayed only five nights there, so we could travel a bit more. Five nights at the weekly rate was still a bargain. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, cozy, comfortable. The setting is beautiful. I heard an owl at night while awake reading. I had a bit of trouble with the TV and staff sorted out the problem within minutes of my complaint. I loved walking from the cottage through the park, to the shops. All staff very friendly and helpful. We will be back!!

A peaceful and attractive location
Cottage was nice and clean on arrival, keys were in pre-arranged place. Kitchen well equipped, heating was good and all other facilities good. Only possible criticisms were that extractor fan in bathroom was inadequate i.e. not able to cope with moisture following a hot shower and neighbours could be heard clearly at times through the adjoining doorway, had there been any children residing next door I would expect the noise to be even more noticeable. Location ideal for walks in Tatton Park.

The cottage-complete with facilities pass made a most enjoyable
Excellent service with warm comfortable furnishings were most appreciated. Superb location for really exploring tattoo park, local historic houses and gardens. Sadly, poor weather and local floods rather restricted what we first planned to do.

A good location
We enjoyed being able to walk in the gardens and the park whenever we wanted as well as being close to Knutsford. We chose the cottage because we were interested in Mrs Gaskell's connection with Knutsford and her basing Cranford there. Unusually for our holidays in this country there were quite a few negatives. The access was a bit hard to find and we continued to come into the Park by the Knutsford entrance. We couldn't work out how to use the microwave and no-one else in the office could either and they had to send for the instructions. This took time to sort out and it was never solved. I don't think such a complicated microwave is suitable for holiday accomodation. More seriously the holiday was marred by the lack of sound proofing between the two cottages. When we were resting on a rainy Sunday we couldn't read for the noise of the children next door which was not at an abnormal level. We could hear ordinary conversation and we never felt completely private.

A week away from it all
Lovely cottage, but spoilt by having the next doors cottage patio right outside our bedroom window, which meant in the heat of July we could not have the windows open. Otherwise passes to Tatton park included which were much appreciated, and peaceful walks abundant. The cottage was well equipped but much more geared up to being a big family taking both cottages together. The downstairs where we were is very noisy with a family next door, their rooms are also above the bedrooms which was unavoidably noisy to us downstairs, especially when the upstairs bathroom fan runs in the night, it is very loud downstairs.
