Lovely welcome on arrival, very friendly owners and helpful when needed, left you alone otherwise to relax and enjoy the stay. Looks as photos, everything as described. Can't wait to go back for another short break.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 6, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

What a great place. Clean with lots of style but also homely. Jackie and Ray were wonderful hosts. Lots of lovely touches, eggs and honey with lovely flowers and fruit.
We stayed in Baker's Cottage but saw Granary. They are both amazing.
Thamk you.

“A perfect Escape in the Country .”

We have just returned from one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in . Everything from the large comfortable bed with crisp white sheets to the beautifully clean and spacious bathroom was perfect. The owners have mixed the traditional with great modern features like a Bose Bluetooth speaker and touch screen T.V.
We stayed for a week and could easily fill every day with different activities in the local area ..... walking , shopping , cycling , golf and eating in the local pubs and restaurants .
We would highly recommend the cottages and the village location is delightful.
The owners are a great source of local knowledge and helped us plan our stay , nothing was too much trouble. We found local eggs and honey on our doorstep one morning and little touches like the indoor herb garden as well as a very well appointed kitchen made it a pleasure to eat in . Will we return ? ..... YES most definitely and will bring our daughter and husband next time as there is something special and peaceful about Sandstone Trail Cottages.

“A gem of a cottage”
Reviewed August 31, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Cannot fault this one bedroomed cottage in peaceful and pretty surroundings.
The owners couldn't do enough for us and the cottage is well equipped with maps and guides for suggestions of where to explore. Really good local pub a walk away with good food and dogs allowed. Pretty garden area in the sun to sit with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Lovely views of the hills from the cottage. Perfect .

“A unique and beautiful cottage”
Reviewed August 21, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

The cottages are beautiful and set in a very scenic location. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. They also provided some extra 'homely' touches, like fresh flowers, eggs, and honey. The location is perfect for exploring the wider countryside of Cheshire and North Wales. Would definitely stay there in future if looking for a holiday in that area.

Um lugar capaz de superar todas as expectativas!
Muito amplo e limpo com dois pisos, cozinha completa, sala com TV, radio, quarto e banheiros maravilhosos. Um atendimento super carinhoso e atencioso do Ray e Jackie, pessoas que serao para sempre grandes amigos. Um lugar que me faz planejar o retorno.

When you expect something, this place is more.
Much romm with 2 floors, very clean with a full kitchen.
Downstairs there is TV, radio, bose bluetooth speaker, table for dinner,
The bathroom is amazing.
The welcome is very friendly. I arrive as guest and go back to Brasil with 2 new friends.
This place has made me think about planning another visit.
