“Fantastic farm experience!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

We (Mum, Dad, Grandma, Grandad, 4year old Jamie and 2 year old Ellie) stayed in the Miller's House. The accomodation was superb, beautifully maintaned and very homely. Sally and Farmer Dave were so friendly and welcoming. The kids adored being able to run out in the morning and go out into the fields with Farmer Dave. They also liked visiting the pigs, cows, hens, sheep and horses every day. The playground equipment dotted about the farm was a much used bonus. Sam and Floss the sheepdogs were lovely and fun to play with. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone.

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Stayed second week of easter hols with my parents and 5 year old daughter. Fabulous experience on the farm as welcomed to help feed the lambs and pigs and collect the hens eggs. Great hosts, home baked cake upon arrival was a nice touch. Superb cottage which was very well equipped, clean and comfortable. Lots to do in the area. Would recommend Knowsley safari park, Chester zoo and Tatton Park. My daughter also enjoyed a visit to the local ice cream parlour which had a fantastic indoor playbarn perfect for a rainy day. The local candle factory where she got to make her own candle was a hit too. I mustn't forget sam the sheep dog, my daughter wanted to bring him home with us. I couldn't recommend the holiday enough.

We went here for a girlie reunion weekend. We took over all 3 cottages between 14 of us and had an amazing time. Sally is very welcoming and helpful and the cottages are beautifully maintained with good showers and well stocked kitchens. Couldn't fault it! We did both the circular walks on their property which were lovely and would be perfect for families with children as they aren't particularly strenuous but include crossing rivers, an old cattle arch and seeing lots of animals. Their free range eggs are not to be missed!
