“excellent value”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stopped for 3 nights. Quality of the lodge was first rate, and great value for the money. Location was rural enough to be very quiet but only a five minute walk into Farndon. Would recommend.

“wonderful location”
Reviewed April 22, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our extended family (3 generations) had a wonderful Easter Break here. The location is perfect - panoramic views and peaceful surroundings, but only a 10 minute walk to the village. The barns are immaculately clean and everything is laid on, even a barbecue - (fantastic butchers in the village too). Jayne, the property owner, was extremely helpful and catered for all our needs - e.g. Non-allergenic bedding! We did a park and ride into Chester (Wrexham Road) and a train ride into Liverpool (park at Bache station and its a 45 mins journey). Excellent holiday - I would recommend it to any family group.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your Easter break and thank you for the great review. As you mention the village is very convenient to the Oak Barns and very handy if you need to pop out to the local shops. It is also nice to have local pubs available if you want to wander out on an evening for a drink with the family. I am glad that I was able to meet your family's needs. Thanks again, Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.

“Excellent accommodation in a lovely place”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 for a stay in August 2013
2
people found this review helpful

Our family group of five adults stayed at Oak Barns for a week's get-together. The accommodation is lovely with a large open-plan lounge/kitchen/dining room, 3 large bedrooms and two bathrooms. The decor is smart and uncluttered, but still has a cosy feel. The owner, Jayne, has thought of everything you could possibly need for a self-catering holiday, and the whole place was immaculately clean. We were lucky to have good weather to make use of the outdoor seating and barbecue, and Jayne kindly delivered some home grown vegetables to our door. (She lives on site).
The barns are only a 5-10 minute walk away from the lovely villages of Farndon & Holt, where there are good places to eat and a very friendly village pub, the Greyhound, where we were made most welcome at the quiz night. Chester is about a 20 minute drive away, and we visited the city (the guided walk was good), the zoo, Chester races and Cheshire Oaks shopping village.We also took a day trip to Liverpool on the train from Bache (free parking at the station) for under £5 return - a bargain!
An excellent place to stay - we would like to return.

“Graet for kids”
Reviewed August 21, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Great house and ideal for families. Lots of space for children to run about and look at horses. Younger children will need supervised as not enclosed (just me being a hyper safe Mum). Lovely wee village walking distance with corner shop and very good restaurants/takeaways. Very close to Chester and loads things to do nearby. Only gripe - double bed bliss - single beds not very comfy. Kids slept sound in them but on couple of night when kids not sleeping and musical beds meant Mum/Dad slept in single beds not very comfy. Great house otherwise.

Thank you for your lovely review and for taking the time to comment. Sorry that you found the single beds a little uncomfortable. Some guests prefer a hard mattress, some a soft one and it's difficult to find a mattress that meets all levels of comfort. I will buy some comfy bed toppers this week and place them in the linen cupboard. I am sure that this will resolve the problem.

Thank you again for your review - Jayne Wilson, Property Owner.
