"perfect setting, great hot tub, fantastic cottage"
Wow, what a wonderful home! I have been to UK several times but this is the first time staying in a country home. It is beautifully decorated and in a great location. I love the sound of cows every morning & the sights of sheeps in the neighbourhood. My husband & two teenage sons loved it there. We prepared our own meal everyday. We just felt at home there. Cheshire Country cottage and hot tub was incredibly comfortable and conveniently located to Trentham Garden where my son's award ceremony was held. The house was not only beautiful, it was very well equipped with anything you could ever need for the stay. The kitchen had everything like home and Adam & Ann Dutton was kind enough to provide eggs, milk and cerelas on our arrival. There was also a large collection of books and television in all rooms to keep you entertained in the house if the weather outside is not up to scratch!
Adam was also very helpful and easy to communicate with from the time I booked the stay until after we left. The only set back it didnt have an internet but I guess the place is meant for a total holiday with peace & not for work! I really recommend this place.
