“Beautiful cottage in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

My husband, myself and our children (11,13 &16) had a pre-Easter break in this wonderfully well equiped and very stylish cottage this April. 

Fantastically placed for trips into Liverpool (great family ticket avaliable from Merseyrail), Chester and the surrounding area. 

Julie is lovely and our youngest thoroughly enjoyed watching (as he called them) the "fat" chickens exploits from the French windows. 

This really is an ideal base for exploring and anyone staying at beautiful Pond Cottage will not be disappointed.

“Beautiful cottage in fantastic location”
Reviewed February 23, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

person found this review helpful

I stayed in pond cottage with my mother and 2 daughters (9 & 5) for 3 nights. We thought the cottage was finished to a very high standard with lots of really interesting finishing touches. There were tv's in each rooms which was very handy when your children want different programmes on. The bathrooms were all very different and again done to a high standard. The views out of all the windows was fantastic. We found the cottage was set in such a lovely quiet area but was so close to everywhere, even a good pub 2 minutes drive away!! We packed so much into our short stay but feels there's so much more to explore. My children loved the ponds with its ducks and lots of rabbits hoping around it & my mum loved the log burning stove!!! We couldn't fault the cottage or location and will be returning in the future!!!

“Pond Cottage offers superior accommodation”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I have previously reviewed Court Farm B&B and mentioned that we hoped to stay in Pond Cottage, a purpose built self-catering cottage constructed immediately adjacent to the B&B. We had inspected the cottage during our last stay at Court Farm in October 2013 so knew there would be no unpleasant surprises unlike a property we rented in Cambridgeshire earlier last year.

The opportunity arose to stay for a week during January 2014 and Pond Cottage did not disappoint. Featuring a spacious kitchen/diner and lounge and three en-suite bedrooms, Pond Cottage offers superior accommodation perhaps not normally found in self-catering properties.

The proprietors, Julie and Martin, seem to have thought of everything making Pond Cottage a exceptionally well appointed home from home which can also cater for certain disabilities.

If I had to single out one feature of Pond Cottage it would have to be the superb beds, so comfy that none of us wanted to get up each morning. Where did you buy those mattresses Julie?

You will need a car to stay at Pond Cottage but Capenhurst station is only five minutes drive from where Merseyrail offers fast links to Chester, the Wirral, Liverpool and beyond.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at Pond Cottage and have already booked it for a short break next October.

“Excellent cottage in quiet rural setting easy access to Chester and surrounding area”
Reviewed August 18, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Pond cottage is a fantastic 3 bedroom (all en-suite) cottage just 6 miles from Chester in a very quiet rural location. The cottage is a barn conversion with a large lounge/kitchen and 3 double bedrooms (all have TVs). The owner lives in the farmhouse next door and is very helpful. The cottage has a west facing deck over the duck pond with a large table and chairs for outdoor eating/drinking and just lazing in the sun. There is a large grassy area outside the cottage with another large pond.

The cottage is furnished to a high standard. It is 10 minutes drive to Ellesmere Port, Cheshire Oaks, Ness Botanic Gardens and Chester. In under an hour you can get to Tatton Park, Manchester and Llandudno. There are a few cheap pubs within a couple of miles selling reasonable food and plenty more restaurants in Chester.
