“Just what we needed!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

My husband and I have just arrived back home after staying 2 nights in The Loft. I saw it advertised on the website for The Helsby Arms last year. Jill phoned me just after we set off to say we could check in any time which was great as we were only about 90 mins away so we were able to settle in 3hrs earlier than expected and then pop over to Cheshire Oaks which is merely minutes away! Lovely accommodation. Perfect for 2 people. Would definitely go again.

Being a seasoned business traveller I had a requirement to find accomodation for a 6 week period in support of a medium term business need.

The Courtyard at Helsby gave opportunity to break away from the "norm" of hotels and give alternative options to have a "home from home" for the duration.

Jill and Roger were fantastic hosts and the accomodation on offer was superb. I had the luxury of experiencing 2 properties - The Stables and The Loft....they were exceptional. After long working days it was so relaxing to return to well appointed properties and unwind in splendid accomodation.

Whenever I have a need for a more than a 2 day stay over in this area, whether it be on business or on a personal level, the Courtyard will be top of my accomodation contact list.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I used to travel a lot on business too so know exactly how it feels staying away from home a lot whilst working, even for short spells, so I am particularly delighted it worked so well for you for your 6 week stay. We have a number of business people who use us as they like the flexibility and standard we offer so we look forward to welcoming you back again the next time that you are up this way and add you to the list!

Kind regards
Roger & Jill

We stayed at The Carriage Barn for 3 nights and enjoyed it very much. Myself, my husband and our son caught up with some friends, another 2 couples and had a wonderful time. The owners Jill & Roger were very friendly, kind and helpful. While attending a friend's wedding in the area it was also an Easter getaway for us all and the owners had kindly greeted us with a box of chocolates and a card. We would definitely stay here again if we are ever in this neck of woods.

We're a family of 5 who recently had a 3 night stay at The Courtyard. My husband discussed our requirements with Jill when booking over the phone and she was really helpful in advising us on the most suitable accommodation, even though it wasn't the most expensive available.
The cottage was lovely - really cosy and well appointed, but practical and family friendly too so we weren't constantly worried about the children ( 2 teens and a 5 year old ) causing mess or damage. We were welcomed by Roger on arrival and the cottage had everything we needed for a lovely stay. I thought the TV blankets in the lounge were a really nice touch!
We all slept well, even on the first night, which is very unusual for our family when we're away from home.

We have just had a 3 night stay in the stables. It was so lovely. A proper home from home. Beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean. Our group consisted of me my husband my elderly mum and our small (well trained) dog. Jill and Roger made us very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The cottage has everything you need and is really comfortable. We would definitely recommend the courtyard to anyone. Thank you for a great trip.

We are a family of four (two adults and two children) and stayed in no.1 The Courtyard in February 2012. What a joy it was to stay in such a comfortable and tasteful cottage.

The location was very central to a number of attractions, such as Chester Zoo, National Waterways Museum, Liverpool, Manchester, Chester and would suit many different tastes/needs.

The accommodation was cosy and comfortable and completed with good quality and tasteful furnishings. It was a pleasure to stay there and we would definitely recommend it.

We are a group of 10 Girls (ok Ladies) and we made the Perfect choice when we 1st found The Courtyard and booked to stay , from the minute we booked Roger & Jill made sure everything ran smoothly for our arrival .
The Accomodation is 5* not one compliant from any of us , we love staying here on our yearly get together's .
We love going to the Helsby Arms when we visit the food is excellent and it's always nice to get the complimentary free desert that Roger & Jill give you a voucher for at The Courtyard .
Roger & Jill are the perfect hosts , The Courtyard is an amazing place to say , it's nice to feel at home when we visit , and hope we will be going 'Home' for a good few years yet .
