About the property

Barn in Burland, Nantwich, Cheshire, England - Country Location but A Short Drive To Nantwich

A country haven and retreat with friends and family. We welcome well behaved dogs too and have an enclosed garden and a large 8 acre field for running off energy! Recently fully renovated, but dating back to the late 1800s, Pinfold Barn offers great features such as round windows and exposed beams whilst being up to modern spec. Great for a family holiday, or a get together with friends and family. You’ll find all home comforts including a fully fitted and equipped farmhouse Oak kitchen, a large lounge with Oak floors, over-sized comfy sofas, flat screen TV with freesat, DVD, iPod docks and WiFi. (Internet connection can be slow in rural Cheshire but we can provide an expensive but better solution via a 4G mobile-based system. Please enquire if you'd like this included in your quote.) Downstairs there’s also a spacious hall, shower room and utility room with fridge / Freezer, washing machine, dryer and boot sink. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms; the principle room having open vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and stunning 4 poster King size bed with John Lewis Vi spring mattress and en-suite bathroom! There’s another King bedroom and a quirky twin room with round window and skylight. There are 3 luxuriously fitted bathrooms including a large indulgent tub with claw and ball feet in the spacious family bathroom. There’s a range of books and family games, including a connected Wii system with over 30 games to keep you occupied. The extensive patio has tables, chairs and loungers and a BBQ for the outdoors cooks. If the home comforts aren’t enough to keep you at the Barn there’s a lot to do in the locality; For the foodies, the local historic market town of Nantwich has some great coffee shops, delis and eateries. Theres a monthly farmers market and a great weekly market. Nantwich is a haven for foodies and was recently rated one of the best 20 towns in the Telegraph foodies ratings! There’s some fabulous pubs famed for their award winning food. We are close to The Thatch, a 15th century coaching inn, The Fox and Barrel and The Dysart Arms to name only a handful! A few minutes away is the Cholmondeley Arms, a converted school with a reputation for its range of gins. A historic watering spot for Clarissa Dickson Wright. The local Co-op in Bunbury offers a wide range of essentials and local produce. Our village of Burland retains its farming heritage and today its mostly organic farms with fantastic local produce, so there’s plenty of fresh produce direct from our farms if you want to cook. For the shoppers, Nantwich has a range of individually owned boutiques and antique shops – head down Hospital Street for a great browse. The Georgian village of Tarporley is 10 minutes away with fabulous shops (as well as distinctive pubs and wine bars including for example "The Swan" (headquarters of the "Cheshire Hunt") We’re close to the Potteries Outlet and the famous Cheshire Oaks Outlets. Or head to Chester – 20 minutes away.

If you like the outdoor life we’ve got a bundle of fantastic walks on the doorstep. Walk out of the front door and join the public footpath across the countryside, take a trip to Beeston Castle and walk up through the ramparts to the old castle, call in at Peckforton Castle for a fabulous Bistro lunch and a look at the birds of prey or even book into their Landrover driving experience or their Crazy golf course. We’ve got 4 bikes available too if you want to explore the area on 2 wheels – gentle riding and no steep hills! Or maybe you just want a quiet retreat away from the madding crowd. There’s an 8 acre field for the kids to play in at the back, and with plenty of country wildlife, a garden full of birds, bees and butterflies and the occasional bat fly pasts (if you’re quiet at dusk) it’s a perfect retreat.

About Alison Zakers

We live on Pinfold Farm in the beautiful rural village of Burland and have converted our Barn as a luxury holiday home from home. We have lived here for 16 years and hope you will enjoy a stay in the countryside. We are on hand to help with anything should you need it however the barn is detached and private with fencing between the properties. Happy to help with planning your holiday so that you have the best time possible.

Why Alison Zakers chose Tarporley

It's out in the countryside but not far from town for all your shopping. Nantwich is a historical market town with plenty of old buildings and private shops with regular markets. There's lot of farm shops for great food and brilliant old pubs with roaring fires and quirky interiors. We're a short drive from Wales for the beaches. A great location for a holiday with lots of potential for action packed days or a real quiet retreat.

What makes this barn unique

There's access to 4 bikes. A Wii machine with plenty of games, a ukulele, family games and tons of books and DVDs!

A good location for business travellers but please request the additional Wifi solution to be included.

"All the home comforts you need and more...."

"A real gem of a holiday home - we don't want to leave..."

Peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a very busy time while staying at the Barn and it was lovely to come home to for our family of five adults. Having three bathrooms was great, all with a shower or tub! It was especially nice to sit around the big country kitchen table and eat our meals with the French doors open on the warm evenings. This was a convenient location for going to the Welsh coast, up to Liverpool and beyond and we liked the town of Nantwich, there were lots of shops, cafes and restaurants to check out. The Nag's Head, just down the road a couple of miles, was a very good local pub.

Very comfortable place to stay especially with dogs.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great few days and the dogs loved the big field to run in. Owners are attentive and welcoming. The barn conversion is very comfortable and spacious. Would definitely go back.

Lovely, very comfortable and spacious

  • 5 of 5

We went as a grown-up family and really appreciated the quality of the space, the downstairs layout and all the kitchen equipment and entertainment options. Upstairs was good - a bit awkward for the third couple given the twin - but Alison gave us extra mattresses and we knew that upfront. Having three bathrooms was a definite plus. Overall a great holiday base and one that's a fairly close walk to a good pub and an easy drive to lots of pleasant small towns and the Peak District should you want to go further afield.
