“Perfectly Formed”
Reviewed March 14, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This property is 5 star and every attention to detail has been covered. The ambiance upon arrival was perfect. It was a cold evening yet the room was warm and inviting. This is a small space but it has been put to good use and very well designed.
We have stayed in Accomodation all over the world. The Nest is a little piece of home comfort in the heart of Chesire and made an ideal base for our wedding celebrations at Wrenbury Hall.
All in all a perfect little bolt hole, but best of all is the silence.

Loved the place.
Well done Racheal a welcoming host.

We will return soon.

Now that I know the standard of places you have stayed in all around the world we feel very honoured indeed to have received such a lovely review from you. Thank you so much for taking the time to write it. It was The Nest that you stayed in. The Garden Room Barn is much bigger but both are just as lovely in their own way so hopefully we can persuade you to come back again soon to try that one too?!

“Perfect weekend ”
Reviewed February 17, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We could not be more glad we choose here to spend our valentines weekend and two year anniversary. We stayed in the Garden Room, the decor was amazing, with so much attention to detail. This barn also has an amazing copper bath which we enjoyed an romantic soak in. The bed is so comfortable and we both slept so well. The log fire was great fun to keep going and it made the whole room so warm and cosy. Rachael is an amazing hostess and checked we had everything we needed. This is such a lovely area to stay in with cosy pubs and lovely walks. I hope we will be back soon!

“Relaxation at it's finest”
Reviewed January 27, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

What an amazing stay. Rachael kept in contact before hand and throughout the weekend, was very helpful to recommend things to do, directions were very clear and we received a very friendly welcome. The garden room was absolutely stunning and the attention to detail was amazing, made the room feel so homely, and the bath was definitely the highlight, could have spent all weekend soaking in there! All in all and absolutely lovely stay, can't wait to coe back in the summer!!

I wish there were up to 10 stars I could award for this cottage!! Excellent is not good enough a word...stunning, curious, quaint, unique, luxurious, cosy, relaxing..."utter decadence"! If there was a word that signally encapsulated all of those...that's the word I would use on my 10th star!
My husband and I were meant to spend the weekend on long country walks arriving back at the cottage to sleep off all the fresh air and aches! Instead we locked the door on our arrival and did not leave until it was time to check out, simply feeding the fire, having long soaks in the glorious bath and enjoying our beautiful surroundings!
The owner Rachael could not have been more accommodating or helpful with every aspect of our stay, from the moment we enquired before booking to the moment we left.
I do know others that have stayed and raved about the spectacular walks and local pubs too! The perfect excuse to book another trip! I lasted two days being home before booking another long weekend.
I simply could not recommend this cottage more...for a cosy weekend relaxing, a weekend of walks and beautiful accommodation to come home to...or both! No-one could not LOVE this place.

Wow - what a wonderful review. Thank you so much and I am delighted you have now booked to come back with your friends for a relaxing, pampering, spa and champers weekend in our other property, The Old Parlour. Don't forget to contact our on site beauty therapist to book her in for the dates you want and to talk through all the wonderful treatments she can offer. Nothing quite as relaxing as one of her full body massages. She will set the massage bed up right infront of the fire if you like and you can play your favourite chill out tunes on the surround sound stereo system during your treatment. After that, just wonder up to your mezzanine bedroom (for a decadent afternoon snooze) where your bed has a 4 inch memory foam mattress topper that literally feels like you are sleeping on a cloud plus White Company clad goosefeather duvets and pillows. Heaven. After that you'll be just about prepped for an evening of amazing gin tasting and gastro food at our fabulous local which has just won 'Pub of The Year 2015!!!' xxxx

What a beautiful find! After a long drive, this place is an oasis! We felt instantly relaxed when we turned into the drive way. Rachael, our host was welcoming, she gave us a quick but comprehensive tour and left us to get settled.

It was easy to relax surrounded by rolling fields, peaceful settings and comfortable furnishings - not to mention the warming wood stove and the freestanding copper bathtub!

After a relaxing bath - help yourself to a warm beverage and make your way upstairs to the elegant and cosy bedroom with a bed that cradled your cares away while you watched the stars.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here, with lots to see and do, all within a few miles, you can't go wrong. We recommend The Dusty Miller (and farm shop) in Wrenbury (5min drive), or sample some gin and fine food at Cholmondeley Arms, or visit Beeston Castle for spectacular views of the Cheshire countryside and do book to have lunch at The Pheasant Inn (it was too full when we tried).

I can't recommend staying at the Heald Country House enough. Thanks Rachael for making our stay memorable.

“Practically perfect in every way!”
Reviewed November 18, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Simply put, I am fussy! If I am paying my hard earned money for something then it has to be right! I can say in all honesty that Heald Country House is pure and utter bliss! Not a single part of the experience is anything but excellence! In particular, it was the communication with Racheal that really made my stay wonderful! The decor, the many many gorgeous little touches, the utter quiet and beauty is overwhelming! We left the Garden Room barn only once for a short time during the 2 night stay as we were so relaxed we could not move! I am in no hesistation in stating that I am going to make a yearly stay at Heald. Thankyou Racheal! See you soon. xx

What a lovely review. Thank you so much. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay Jasmine. I know how much you were looking forward to some total relaxation and time out and I'm really glad you got that. We are about to start the conversion of our last little barn which we hope to be ready in March 2016. If all goes to plan this will be a total haven of relaxation, peace and pure quirky yet indulgent luxury with all the usual Heald Country House Retreats touches such as a mezzanine bedroom, roll top bath, log burner and a few more surprises so hopefully you'll come back again next year to try it out! xxxx
