We were so fortunate to find The Courtyard Cheshire! We stayed in Number 1 and it was perfect in every way. We came to the UK for The Open and it was ideally located. Helsby is a great location. We were 20" from Hoylake Royal Liverpool Golf Club, 10" from the town of Chester, and in easy reach of area... More

I cannot recommend The Courtyard highly enough. We have just returned from our fourth visit and again another relaxing stay. We have stayed in The Stables once and the rest at The Loft. The Loft is an amazingly comfortable home from home, as soon as I enter the living area with its high beamed ceiling I just feel so chilled.... More

Judging by the favourable reviews posted on Trip Advisor, I've no doubt that these cottages are of a high standard. I would just warn future guests that they may need to be flexible after making a booking. We booked The Loft in the courtyard for a short break in March this year. Some weeks after booking and paying in full,... More

Dear Robert C Thank you for your review. We agree it is unfortunate that it was necessary to ask you if you would mind your booking being transferred twice. This was necessitated by other guests wishing to extend their stay and in the 7 years we have been operating was the first time these circumstances arose. We asked the first... More
