“Old Parlour Barn”
Reviewed March 2, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I couldn't recommend staying at the Cheshire Boutique Barns highly enough. Not only is the location brilliant; about a 20 minute drive from Chester in the gorgeous Cheshire countryside surrounded by gastro pubs but the barns themselves are spectacular. The attention to detail is off the scale! Everything has been designed to perfection and the bed is beyond comfy!

“Fantastic luxury stay in a unique setting”
Reviewed January 25, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

This was our second stay at Cheshire Boutique Barns but our first in "The Cow Shed" Wow Wow Wow ! What an amazing space you have created in this barn Rachael. So tastefully decorated and lots of quirky objects that are a real talking point. So much so on our first night the four of us kept pointing things out to each other ! This place has everything you could want for a luxury stay from the White company bedding, bathrobes and toiletries to a well stocked kitchenette with complimentary jars of coffee, hot chocolate and many varieties of teas. Racheal even left us a bottle of milk and chilled water in the fridge for our arrival which is perfect for those wanting a cuppa after your journey. Included is also a huge basket of logs which we used for the woodburning stove on both nights. There is also a beautiful private outside seating area " The Cabin" with Chiminea, BBQ and an outside bath. Although on this trip due to the cold weather none of us were brave enough to use it it would be a wonderful addition to your stay in the warmer months. If your after a luxury stay in a unique setting this is your place. We just simply can't praise this place highly enough. Thank you Rachael we had an amazing time and will definately be returning.

What a lovely review! Thank you! Please do come back again soon and next time I dare you to use the outdoor, under cover bath too! Simply light the outdoor fire, run it piping hot and full of bubbles then hop in and enjoy - preferably with a glass of bubbly too or maybe just a hot chocolate! Even better if it's raining and you can listen to the sound of the raindrops on the glass roof above! Then wrap up in one of the robes and snuggle up by the indoor log burner with one of the hot water bottles provided. Better than a hot tub anyday! Hee hee! There - the gauntlet has been laid down! Hope to see you soon to accept the challenge!

Reviewed January 12, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Stunning and most beautiful accommodation. Had the most romantic time whilst staying at the Cow Shed for 3 nights.
Booked the double bubbles surprise which Rachael made sure was perfect and even led to the best wedding proposal ever.
Beautiful rooms and every detail is so thought out.
Definitely recommend and will return without a doubt. Worth every penny.
Everyone needs a visit to this wonderful part of the country.

“Excellent Mini Break Destination”
Reviewed January 11, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

The barns at Cheshire Boutique Barns are great, every whim you have is catered for. The location is lovely so peaceful and quiet.

The Nest has a really romantic feel to it, so if you're looking for a lover's retreat it's perfect !!

The local pubs have great food and Rookery Hall Spa is great we had a great time there too.

I would recommend this place to anyone and intend to go there again ASAP !

“NYE - Fantastic!”
Reviewed January 2, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We stayed in 'The Nest' cottage for two nights for New Years and had a fantastic time. The cottage is so cosy and beautifully furnished - it's perfect for a couple. It is small but the owners have made great use of the space and we had everything we needed - the kitchen is well equipped, the sofa pulls out into a sofa bed, the outside area looked lovely (we didn't use this as it was too cold outside) and the bed is very comfy. The fairy lights and candles make the cottage even more relaxing and romantic. Dealing with the owner Rachael before arrival was a pleasure. We ate on NYE in the evening at the Dusty Miller - a ten minute walk down the lane (take a torch as it is very dark!) which was great and on New Years Day we ate at the Cholmondley Arms where they have a huge gin selection and very good roast dinner and desserts. We would suggest taking everything you need food wise with you as we didn't come across a local shop. Lots to do nearby. Would definitely stay again!

Hello and thank you for your review. I am sorry I wasnt around to meet you for your trip this time but I'm delighted you had a lovely stay and that you managed to get to both our lovely local pubs. The village shop is just past the Dusty Miller on the left so I hope you didnt go hungry! In the summer months the Dusty Miller has a fab farm shop too selling fresh, hot breads, bacon, sausages etc but sadly it tends not to be open in the winter months there. Anyway, thankyou again for taking the time to write a review of your stay and I hope we can entice you back again soon!

“FANTASTIC”
Reviewed December 14, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

5 of us have just stayed at the Nest and The Parlour.
It was simply the most wonderful weekend, in what can only be described as a 'little piece of heaven'
Our hosts Rachael and Louis were so warm and welcoming, and the cottages beautifully designed and very cosy. We could have all moved in permanently!!!
Every little detail has been thought of, it was faultless.
The beds were soo comfortable that we have gone ahead and bought the same toppers that Rachael recommended.
We are all trying to find an excuse to return sooner rather than later. xx

“Mrs”
Reviewed November 29, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

My husband and I have had a very upsetting, stressful time this past 6 months and needed to find a peaceful retreat to recharge our batteries and simply get away from it all. We did not mind what part of the country we visited, it was purely down to finding the right accommodation for our needs. We did not want a soulless hotel room.

After covering pretty much the whole country on booking.com, I discovered Cheshire Boutique Barns and knew this was exactly the place we were looking for.

I added on the option to have candles and fire lit for our arrival and I am so pleased I did. I strongly recommend this add-on.

No pictures do this beautiful retreat justice, we were literally blown away! Rachael has literally thought of everything! The cosy, country cottage decor both inside and in the entrance porch, the handwritten notes on the dainty pots with tea, coffee etc, toothbrush charger, cotton wool & buds, the White Company bathing products, the country style milk and water bottles filled - everything is so well thought out!

You are located centrally between snowdonia and the Peak District and we intended to visit both. But when we were actually there we didn't want to leave!! We did have a fabulous day exploring the Peak District, visiting the beautiful village of Bakewell. Other days we chose to stay closer to home visiting Nantwich and Chester, both very lovely.

Rachael is always on hand, should you need her but also allows the greatest privacy to you. We received a text from Rachael on the Friday to say that she will be cooking a breakfast on the Saturday morning if we were interested, we were and it was fabulous! Again, even with this the smallest detail was considered with dainty butter dish and hot baked bread rolls, amazing!

We are already plotting our next visit and have no doubt that this is somewhere we will visit time and time again!

Dear Lesley, What a beautiful review. Thank you so much. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you both and the Bakewell Tart you left us (so so kind of you!) was delicious! Really looking forward to welcoming you back soon I hope and I am so glad the Garden Room Barn got a chance to work a little of it's magic in helping you feel relaxed and recharged after the very tough time you've been through.
