“Lovely location - lovely accomadation”
Reviewed August 22, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Fabulous location with the Delemare Forest literally on your doorstep. The lodges themselves are detached and are situated opposite the forest behind a secure gate in the large grounds of the owners farmhouse. It felt very private and was so peaceful - the gravel road outside is a no-through road so no traffic - other than horses and walkers!
Blakemere is the smaller of the two lodges (sleeps 4) and is set behind the larger lodge and stables which gives complete privacy and a nice sun trap! It has a picnic bench and barbecue which we took advantage of on the sunny evenings during our stay.
The lodge was spotlessly clean and well equipped. It was nicely decorated and comfortable. The beds in particular were very comfortable. The bathroom has an excellent shower and looked like it had recently been refurnished. Owner was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Recommend the forest activities on your doorstep - it really is a stunning place to explore. The forest visitor centre (10 minute walk) has a great cafe Lots of local tourist attractions in easy reach including a lovely train line that takes you into Chester - the local station is a 15 minute walk. Though geared up for equestrian breaks I strongly recommend this accommodation also for young families / walkers and couples.

“Excellent cottage in lovely location”
Reviewed October 20, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is an excellent cottage next to the forest. Plenty of area to explore either by horse, cycling or walking. The cottage was in excellent condition with everything you could need to make it an enjoyable stay. The owners are very nice and helpful. We were only there for a couple of nights but enjoyed visiting Chester by train, the station being only a ten minute walk away. We also had a go at Segway which is only a two minute walk away. The local pub/restaurants served superb food. Would certainly recommend the cottage and location.

“Fab "away from it all" break”
Reviewed July 12, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a lovely week in Cottage 2, well furnished so both comfortable and stylish. Particularly liked the large living room for eating, chilling out and listening to music.
The walks we took locally were delightful. We had made a decision not to bring the car as wanted to take things slowly, local train service was great for visits to Chester etc. It was viable to walk to local shop and pubs, Abbeywood Gardens and Eddisbury Hill were highlights for us.
Taxi services not so easy to obtain as they seemed to be booked up in advance but we didn't have real need of them.
Stacey and John were friendly and helpful, flexible about family member joining us for a brief visit. Marvellous to step out of front door and be in the forest in a couple of minutes.

“Amazing Facilities, Amazing Location”
Reviewed January 3, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We have just returned from a fantastic break here with our families hiring both cottages. My family of four stayed in cottage two and could not have been happier with it. Spotlessly clean and by far the most well equipped self catering accommodation we have stayed in. Stacey and John were incredibly helpful and friendly. The location is amazing and is very secure. We definitely hope to be visiting again - would recommend whole heartedly.
