We don't often do B&B's, but Nick and Helen are the best hosts you could wish for- not at all intrusive but incredibly attentive at the same time- a hard trick to pull off even in 5* Hotels. Nothing is too much trouble for them- but you don't often get great service supported by a great sense of fun and (subtle?) humour too. (Well Nick thinks so and he's right most of the time).
Hampton House is a really lovely place- has great history and is in a lovely quiet location with archetypal Cheshire Dairy farm views. We really enjoyed seeing the photographs charting the refurbishment from long ago- obviously a real labour of love. It is a real home from home and the place is spotless. This isn't a soulless TV in your room place- the residents lounge is somewhere you want to chill out in and the breakfast table is a proper big farmhouse one where Nick's silver(ish) service is not to be missed.
We had the added bonus of chatting to a lodging African Grey Parrot who was being looked after whilst the owners were on holiday, just another character to add to the experience. Read all the reviews, they are right- I couldn't recommend this place highly enough.
