We had a long weekend stay here during the first week of August, and found the house to be a perfect retreat. It is located in a lovely village, but easily driveable to larger amenities/shopping/sight-seeing around other parts of Cheshire or Shropshire. There is a nice looking pub in the village, and lots of suggestions for other places to eat and visit are kept within the house should you be short of ideas.
The house itself was perfect for us - a family with 3 children between the ages of 3 and 9. The lovely bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of storage - the master bedroom had an ensuite, leaving the main bathroom free for the children to make use of. Downstairs, an immaculate kitchen with sofas to relax on, together with a good sized sitting room, meant that everyone had somewhere to chill out at the end of each busy day. The garden was a particular bonus for the children to run around in and blow off steam, being enclosed and laid to lawn with a paved area for seating.
Although we didn't make use of it, the offer of using the facilities and free rounds of golf at a nearby leisure resort made the price of this break very good value. The weather was fantastic during our stay and we had tickets to CarFest North so our days were very full, however, should we stay at this property again we would definitely make use of this added extra.
All in all a lovely house, exceptionally clean and tidy, fantastically fitted out and perfect for couples, families or groups of friends to spend time in.
As a final word, the reception we had from Cliff and Shirley on arrival, and again on departure, was first class. They were friendly, helpful and unobtrusive - although we felt we could have called on them at the drop of a hat if we had needed to....exactly what you want when renting somewhere for a stay.
We would definitely recommend a stay at Ashgrove House, and indeed have already spread the word amongst our friends should they be after a break in this lovely part of the country!
