The Dairy Family Cottage description

Holiday home
This barn-conversion still retains much of its original charm through the retention of features such as exposed beams and stripped-pine flooring. The property has a wonderful farmhouse kitchen and a games room with table-tennis, table-football and a pool table; ideal for entertaining younger guests. In the summer months, French windows take you out onto a patio from which you can enjoy a glass of wine on a summer evening. In the colder seasons, the property has central heating throughout, making it a superb and spacious base for groups of up to eight people.

Rossett lies just inside the Welsh border, sitting on the banks of the River Alyn. It is surrounded by good, gentle walking country with much of the landscape being very flat, although hills do rise to the south and west. The village itself is made up of many striking buildings, such as Trevalyn Hall and a church that was built in 1892 by two architects and uses tubular bells to peal. Rossett is well situated for visitors to explore local attractions such as Chester Zoo, the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm and the ancient ruins of Beeston Castle. The River Alyn offers sport and tranquillity for fishermen and wildlife enthusiasts alike. Herons, cormorants, water voles and kingfishers are still to be seen along the Alyn and the fishing is plentiful.

Famous for its choirs, stunning mountain ranges and beautiful valleys, this wonderful country has something for everyone. From Snowdonia in North Wales to the Brecon Beacons and the Pembrokeshire Coast in the South.

Central heating with electric fire in sitting room. Electric cooker with double oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, washer/dryer, dishwasher, TV, video, DVD player, CD player, WiFi.

the cottage was lovely although some of the crockery could do with updating, there were six of us in the party including two young children, who had the run of the garden, the setting in the farm feels open and uncluttered, the owner was on hand had we needed her but was unobtusive the rest of the time. would recommend it for young family who dont mind travelling for shopping and entertainment

There was everything that we needed in the cottage and nothing had been scrimped upon. Lovely furniture and lots of equipment in the kitchen meant that we were able to relax and enjoy a lovely time with our extended family. We'll be back!!!

Comfortable, spacious and conveniently located holiday property. Well equipped and easy to access. We had a very enjoyable holiday, helped by excellent weather. There are lots of interesting places to visit within a short distance from the property and there are plenty of walks locally to enjoy. The owners are helpful and friendly. We are keen to return to the property to explore the area more fully in the future.

We all thought the conversion had been sensitively and excellently executed. The level of decor and facilities was superb. The owner made us very welcome and we definitely appreciated all the extra touches such as the welcome cake she had left us.

Have just had a weeks holiday here. Cannot fault it at all! Everything was perfect about the accommodation and very private play area for children. Lots of space too in the property, bearing in mind it was five adults and one child in the cottage. Owners were also really pleasant to deal with and very helpful. Can highly recommend this cottage. Would go back there if in the area for future holidays.

The cottage is on a working farm, and we received a warm welcome from the owners. it has a comfortable and spacious living room, and an excellent kitchen/diner. The local pub does excellent food!

The owner was friendly and helpful without being intrusive. The setting was wonderful and my grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed having the run of the garden and the proxy cat which came with the cottage! Local amenities are some way away but then this adds to the charm of the peace and quietness.

Great property and location for a family. The outdoor play facilities and games barn were excellent for the children. A quiet location, but only a short drive to every facility/attraction you could want.

A well-equipped cottage. Kitchen, living room and bedrooms all of good quality. Rather cheap shower cubicles and water flow quite inadequate to be able to use the bath

Have just returned from a 4 night stay at The Dairy - with hubby, sister-in-law and another friend. Immaculate cottage, excellent facilities, large kitchen, large separate lounge and three lovely sized bedroom, the double having its own en-suite. Bev had left a lovely sponge, milk and other essentials to start our holiday - a really nice touch! Had a lovely time one evening in the separate games room trying to learn to play table tennis! Bev and her family were so welcoming. Will definitely go back as there are plenty of places to visit in the area.

This house offers rural peace and quiet whilst being close by car to lots of varied activities within and around the historic city of Chester. The owners provided lots of useful information for those not familiar with the area, and there is something for everyone to do whatever the weather in this region, The swings and large trampoline in the garden were appreciated by my young nephew. Two of the bedrooms are larger than most - one a double bed ensuite, and one with twin beds - but the third one is a much smaller twin room. The provision of a cot was very helpful. Downstairs has a spacious lounge with plenty of comfy sofas (one sofa bed) and direct access to the patio and garden. The large kitchen diner has room to seat 8 at the table, so the property can easily accommodate large families or extended groups. . Most needs have been considered by the owners - the usual DVD/video/TV package etc, but also books and some games are present and the kitchen is well stocked with equipment, including a high chair. The property was also very clean. However, during our stay in early May 2010 there were a couple of important reasons why we were all relieved to be staying only 3 nights. The mattresses on all the beds were long past their best and were very uncomfortable. These need to be replaced to bring the accommodation up to the required standard for a comfortable stay. Secondly, two of the bedrooms have velux roof windows with no blinds fitted on them so we were woken far too early by light flooding into the rooms. On a more minor negative note, some of the towels provided were extremely small for the job - one "hand towel" was no bigger than a large facecloth! Overall, we enjoyed our waking moments in the house, but had difficulties with the sleeping moments, due to the problems listed above. This is a shame, as it marred our experience of an otherwise lovely house. I hope these issues are soon fixed and then all who visit will have a great break I am sure.

The owners have done a fantastic job renovating these properties. The are finished and furnished to a very high standard. They made us feel very welcome. The surrounding area provided lots of things to see and do and the setting was idyllic. My family and I thoroughly enjoyed the stay and were sorry to leave.

We all enjoyed our stay at the Dairy; my wife and I, my daughter 3 grandchildren 3 -9. The dairy was spacious, comfortable and clean with everything we could need. Loads of safe space & facilities for the kids. Convenient for Chester, Wrexham and North Wales. Would certainly recommend.
