“Lovely location.”
Reviewed 5 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Stayed here mid January 2016 with wife, daughter and my mother. This was my second time here. Previous stay was almost 3 years previous. Cottage hasn't changed. It's still a lovely, comfortable relaxing location.

Location is superb. This time (during winter) we didn't see as much activity on the farm. That may have been due to our travelling away early and returning late. Lovely to see the animals - reindeer this time and the piglets.

I won't go into details on the accommodation as I covered it pretty well last time. The rooms are warm and comfortable. The log fire in the lounge room was put to good use. As the front door opens into the room, even with the draft stopper, the room needed the fire to get it warm. The initial supply of kindling lasted the full week but the logs went in a couple of days. The logs are not seasoned so they leaked resin on the hearth. Best to keep them in the log basket with the newspaper and kindling. The logs are an easy purchase from petrol station in Knutsford or from a larger supermarket - Tesco in Northwich for example.

The cottage is on the flight part to / from Manchester airport. We did hear planes in the morning, but this wasn't a problem for us. Time to get up anyway.

Watch out in winter on cold mornings. The flagstones leading to the front door were icy. There was salt in the little shed which was good. A few handfuls were thrown around to help with this.

This is a good location to spend a week in Cheshire; within striking distance of Liverpool, Anthony Gormley statues at Crosby Beach, the shopping at Chester, Manchester and the tranquility of the wonderful Peak District. Not far from the M6 you can cover a lot of ground from here ... or you can sit and enjoy the farm.

Thank you ever so much for sharing your holiday experience with us all, we couldn't be happier that you enjoyed your break. It sounds like you did plenty of exploring, and with a good mixture of culture, shopping and the beach all within reach, we don't blame you! It must have been a weight off your mind to know that you were arriving to a lovely comfortable property too, having been there a couple of years earlier! We certainly hope that you make a return visit very soon.

“lovely stay”
Reviewed 11 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

the apartment was really pretty and clean and ideal location as short walk to the tatton park farm and the house,
only concern was the instructions to find the house could have been clearer, but we eventually sorted it........
but really lovely break, and free access to tatton park so you could come and go and didn't have to do it all in one go.

“Superb location”

Imagine staying on a farm where you are well way from traffic sounds and the worst you have to deal with is some sheep bleating or ducks quacking. Cottage #2 is tucked away off the Ashley Road behind two security gates in a lovely farm setting. The farm is a public attraction which can get busy so take care when driving through.

The approach to the cottage is from the rear where there is a wide gravel are for parking cars. It's is shared with the other cottage.

The accommodation was clean and comfortable. The front room had a log fire and radiators which warmed the cottage well. The kitchen was good enough and functional.

Up the steep stairs there are three bedrooms. A queen, twin single and another single. The beds were firm and comfortable.

Complimentary access to the farm is provided and it is well worth a visit.

Agreed with other post. Mobile signal is poor here. I bought Internet access device and only managed to get signal from upstairs close to a window or downstairs close to same. It's the price of being out in the country and in a well built brick cottage I am afraid. It wasn't a problem for me.

I have to say that during our stay we had some issues with the hot water boiler and central heating which took a while to fix. The management were superb and provided us with options to stay elsewhere which we declined because we were happy where we were. The heating and hot water were fixed ASAP and I was extremely happy with the Tatton Park teams efforts (especially Graham) in dealing with the issues.

Will definitely return. Great place to stay.
