A beautiful cottage in lovely countryside. An amazing place to bring the family. With quietly, helpful hosts, the basket of goodies went!

We’ve had a lovely time in your cottage. Such a beautiful space and fantastic location. The high spot for us was the hare in the garden. Thank you.

Heidi & Paul Richards,  The Haybarn,   27th March, 2019

Thank you for a great stay, we’ve had a super time despite the weather throwing everything as us, waking up to snow made the view spectacular. Explored the area, super walks, further afield found Ilam and Dovedale, lovely and back to home from home at ‘Old Byre’ with all the home comforts.

Lovely relaxing stay. Brilliant weather. Excellent accommodation!


Maween & David, Sandbach,   Old Byre     25th February – 1st March 2019

Second time here, but now there’s four of us! We walked through the tunnel, went to the cheese shop, read a Bear Gryls book, tried to take our first steps, enjoyed the scenery and had a great family time! Phoebe & Esther appreciated the generous toy & book selection. We were all fascinated by the bio-mass hearer. We will be back!

Thank you for a great stay. The cottage is a home from home in a beautiful setting. Wonderful welcome on arrival and such attention to detail is superb.

It was really great! I really liked the Christmas decorations and chocolate. The cottage and location are beautiful.

Such a special time for us seeing the family from USA after 18 months. Fantastic times, beautiful countryside, amazing accommodation and you are both very kind. Thank you.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the cottages are furnished beautifully with good taste. The Christmas touches have been well received especially by the little ones. The naughty elf was something else, omg he has been everywhere, even on the saddle. We will be back!
