We stayed in Number 1 in Helsby and had a wonderful time. The cottage was definitely 'home from home'. It was clean, tidy and warm. There was ample storage and space for our needs.

We stayed in the stables with our children and grandchildren and had a fantastic time. We returned in 2012 as a couple and stayed in the loft and found it to be a home away from home despite the wet weather will return for our xt trip home from Australia and will certainly recommend to anyone.
