About Grant & Rachel Whittingham

I'm very lucky to be able to live in the beautiful Cheshire countryside on the farm with my husband and two children. I've always had a love of interior design and it was a real pleasure to be able to refurbish the cottage for my future guests enjoyment. We love meeting people from all walks of life and are lucky enough to be able to do that from our very own doorstep.

Why Grant & Rachel Whittingham chose Tarporley

I grew up not far from this area and my husband has lived here on this farm for more than thirty years so the farm and surrounding countryside are really in our hearts and we hope our childrens now too.

Lovely place, would definitely recommend

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at the cottage. Was so much better than us staying in a hotel room. Perfect for kids and only a short walk to an amazing ice cream factory/play park for kids. We will definitely be recommending this place and booking it to stay at again.

My only problem we had was it was hard to find in the dark and the floor boards and doors were a little creaky so our 7 1/2 month old didn't sleep as well as normal but that's a small niggle and somewhat expected in an old cottage.

The cottage had everything we could ask for. Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Perfect family cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is a perfect home from home. Well equipped with everything we needed, beautifully decorated and quiet location. We enjoyed a wonderful winter break at the cottage, the owner Rachel was very easy to contact and happy to do anything she could to make us comfortable including making the property safe for a toddler.

Location was perfect for exploring Chester and the surrounding area, we enjoyed days out to Chester zoo, the ice cream farm (walking distance) and Chester city centre.

We would recommend this cottage to anyone, and hope to be back in the future.

Fantastic cottage. A must stay!

  • 5 of 5

We were attending a family christening and as a family decided to stay in a holiday cottage and what a fantastic cottage we chose. We had a warm welcome from the owners and their friendly dogs.

The cottage itself is stunning, set in an old building full of character with beautiful modern furniture. We loved it! Definitely returning soon.

Very clean and tidy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Lovely cottage with everything you could need. Kitchen is very well equipped and the cottage is very clean and tidy. Rachel and Grant could not be more welcoming. We stayed for 3 nights to visit Blackpool (although quite a distance, we couldn't find anywhere nearer to Blackpool) and Chester Zoo. We had 2 great days out but would love to return as many other local attractions we would have liked to see. Would definitely recommend.
