“Delightful cottage”
Reviewed July 15, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Well presented cottage in great location. Perfect for visiting The Wirral, Liverpool and the north coast of Wales. Walking distance to good town with all amenities. Easy to get to main roads to visit the surrounding areas.

“Ideal accomodation for our needs”
Reviewed May 21, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The Stables is a beautiful, interesting and comfortable home-from-home, ideal for a couple of any age. It is very conveniently located for a number of attractions and within ten minutes of the motorway network.
The owner, Karen, was friendly, welcoming and offered a clear and comprehensive introduction to the property, which was well-equipped and interestingly furnished. The grounds of the house are a delight with many unusual shrubs and plants. Everything, including the wifi, functioned well, although we would have appreciated hotter water for the shower!
The smoke alarm proved to be extremely sensitive when we tried to use the grill. These, however, were minor points in an otherwise thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Thanks for the kind review.
There is a button to press on the shower to override the anti-scald mechanism, I'll be sure to add this point to the orientation I give.
Unfortunately the mains smoke alarm is a legal requirement and apologies if this goes off with burnt toast. I just waft the oven gloves under it for a moment and this stops it!
Looking forward to seeing you on your next visit.

“Perfect setting for a weekend break by the sea!”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The stables were the perfect setting for our weekend break by the sea!

On arrival we were met by the owner who was very friendly and helpful. The stables has all the facilities you would need, including plenty of equipment in the kitchen for making your own food if you wish. A few nice extra touches included fluffy robes and a DVD selection. It was also nice to see a separate bin for recycling!

The bathroom is also a great size with lovely soft towels, although it would have been nice to have a separate hand towel. The huge bed was very comfortable, although the pillows were not supportive enough and did give both of us a slight neck ache in the morning (may have been nice to have one soft and one firm available to suit all preferences?). The cottage did feel cold at times, particular on the areas of bare floor (remember to bring your slippers!) but this was soon solved by lighting the lovely fire!

Overall we loved our stay at the stables and if we are ever in the area again we would definitely stay here!

“Fantastic getaway for any couple!”
Reviewed December 8, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

Thouroughly enjoyed our stay, the place was very well presented and modern. Amazing bathroom and everything we needed for our weekend. Location was spot on, approx 10-15 mins away from Chester Zoo and Cheshire Oaks so both days out were made very easy and hassle free. Great weekend!

“Relaxing, re-energising break :-)”
Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at The Stables, Ness. I really appreciated the communication between myself and Karen prior to the trip and all the additional information she provided us with. Although, i didn't get to meet her i felt very welcomed and the accomodation was very inviting. Me and my partner just needed a few days away from the stresses of London life and it was great to just relax in a beautiful location and watch a few movies from the fantastic DVD collection Karen had on offer.

Town was nearby with banks and shops to do some food shopping. Although we didn't eat out there were quite a few restaurants and pubs that catered if required. Good location for all the things wanted to do, very short drive to Cheshire oaks and not to far away from chester city centre.

Will definitely be back in the future.

Thank you.. Seya & Luke. xx
