“A guest house where the guest is all important”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have stayed several times at The Pickmere...in fact I have slept in seven of the eleven rooms! I can vouch that those seven beds are far more comfortable than many top notch hotels provide.

The rooms are variously furnished : some simply, with lovely pieces of antique furniture, some with a modern twist reflecting the owner's flair for comfortable interior design. The public rooms are lovely,totally in keeping with the age of the property and so often one hears guests' conversations at breakfast imagining how they would like to live in such a lovely house.
The breakfasts are more than generous, and the service is friendly yet professional,though if you stay often you can begin to feel like a family friend returning for a visit.

Lovely place, good location, evening food down the road or a few minutes away in Knutsford,peaceful walks round the nearby Mere.....it is what it is:a very good place to stay.

The hospitality is good. And the breakfast is very adequate. But it is not a five star accommodation. The location is well situated in the countryside. But disappointingly all of the double glazed windows had a problem in that moisture has got into the vacuum. So it looks foggy trying to see outside. The rooms are clean and adequate but lack finesse. However, for those seeking a homely accommodation and if they have dogs and enjoy rural life, this would probably suite very well. (Lovely paintings in the dining room.)

Can thoroughly recommend this guest house. Although conveniently close to the M6/M56 the village has lovely rural surroundings including the nearby mere worth a walk at dusk. First class locally-sourced products well-cooked for breakfast. The building is elegant and has been furnished tastefully and with all the facilities you could need. Good pub with real ales just down the road too.

Were on our motorcycle on way to Heysham to visit the Isle of Man for the Manx Gp and Classic TT and needed a stop over.
We struck lucky as we had booked the annex room in garden with a lovely outlook and we could sit out on patio and relax.
Were made to feel very welcome by owner and her husband who went out of the way to accommodate us especially with parking our motorcycle.
Went for a walk around Pickmere lake after a long day riding and had an adequate evening meal at The Red Lion 200 yds away. Would have preferred eating at The Elms which was a pub 50 yds away in the other direction but they were not serving food on that Tuesday evening but called in for a drink anyway.
Breakfast was also a pleasure as it was all freshly cooked and local ingredients used.
All in all a very good start to our holiday.

Stayed at this very clean, smart guest house in August while attending a wedding at Arley Hall which is close by.
The rooms are beautifully decorated. The bed linen is of high quality, as are the bath towels which are huge. Complimentary items in the bathroom were lovely.
The breakfast was very nicely cooked, all the usual which makes up an English breakfast. The ingredients weree all high quality with provenance.
Plenty of room in the car park.
Owners helpful.

Room Tip: Room 7 was lovely.

Stayed at the guest house for 2 nights, whilst visiting Tatton Garden show. We were made to feel very welcome when we arrived. Our room was very comfortable with a lovely view. The house has lots of character and charm. A good choice of cereals and fruit, with a varied choice of cooked breakfast. The Red Lion pub (just 5 mins walk) was recommended by the landlady. Where we enjoyed an excellent evening meal both evenings.
Both highly recommended and will stay there again if in the area.
