We had a lovely weekend break at this beautiful property. It had everything we needed and was perfect for my son who is in a wheelchair. Will definitely return.

Ideal for a visit to Chester Zoo!

  • 5 of 5

Great little cottage in a lovely little village.

The cottage is kitted out with everything you need for a little family stay. The grounds around it are ideal for the kids to burn off a bit of energy.

Ideal place to stay if you are looking at taking your family to Chester zoo.

We stayed here a few nights so we could go to Chester zoo and see the surrounding areas. The cottage was delightful and set in a wonderful quiet setting. Highly recommended.

Idyllic Country Christmas

  • 5 of 5

After a full-on couple of months of working and travelling, we wanted to visit friends and family in Chester and Wirral over the holidays, but also to 'get away from it all' too. We were lucky to secure a booking at Court Lodge over Christmas itself, and made our plans around it.

We asked about "bringing Christmas in a suitcase", but Julie cheerfully confirmed that there would be no need, as there was a tree, decorations and 'frippery' tucked away in the lodge for our use.

Upon arrival, we found that Julie had set up the tree and decorations already, so we were all set up to either hide away or entertain immediately. As we strolled around the farm later, we also saw the cottage by the pond decorated for Christmas too, with a young family staying there.

Relaxing at Court Lodge was no effort at all, as the place was very clean, and well equipped with everything that we reached for - even down to a pair of nutcrackers.

All in all, another wonderful stay at Court Farm.

Wunderschönes Cottage in ruhiger und doch zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Erwachsene und 3 Teenager) haben eine Woche im Cottage verbracht. Julie ist eine sehr aufmerksame Gastgeberin. Sie hat uns schon vor unserer Anreise Post entgegen genommen und uns tatkräftig unterstützt. Ansonsten hilft eine gut sortierte Auswahl an Infomaterial, um sich in der Gegend zurechtzufinden.

Das Haus ist liebevoll eingerichtete, alles da was man braucht. Sogar frische Blumen waren für uns bereitgestellt.

Wir haben unsere Zeit sehr genossen und kommen wieder, wenn wir in Liverpool unterwegs sind. Vielen Dank Julie!
