“Avoid”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Avoid, Avoid AVOID. A terrible stay. Whilst the village and residents of Shocklach are amazing, honeysuckle cottage is a death trap. The list of don’ts in the “welcoming” manual will set the scene. On the odd occasion the shower actually had some water coming out of it, it will be either scolding hot or cold. The “log” burner leaks terrible fumes every time you open the door (not just smoke) and only stays going a few hours without needing attention; a real burden every time you want to go out. It has to be re-lit on return since the ash does not filter through the grate (provide your own kindling). Only attempt to park in the ‘designated car park’ if you have a smart car or don’t value your bumpers. Don’t get it cleaned since you can only get your car half off the road. In summer all the tractors and cars cover everything in dust, chip your windows and paintwork whilst in winter you get plastered in mud. The car space fills with water and so you have to wade through a muddy puddle after the slightest bit of rain. Kettle leaks water everywhere all over the base so mind you don’t get electrocuted. The water, heated through an immersion heater has a big sign saying if you leave it on for more than 15 minutes it will explode! Very annoying if you have a family wanting to all shower. Most of the plug sockets don’t work as have been put too close to the floor so could cant get a plug into the socket!
There is no BT hotspot, despite being advertising as having this.
I’m a country girl, capable of using a log burner and dealing with bugs but when you pay a lot of money to stay somewhere you do not expect a slugs invasion at night covering the living room floor in slime. Also if you leave any windows open at night the rooms fill with bugs.
The owner is rude and money grabbing. Make sure you strip the beds, wash the sheets, do the mowing, hoover and mop all the floors when you leave otherwise you and your baby get hate mail saying you didn’t leave it very tidy!
Don’t put yourselves at risk staying here, there are plenty of other beautiful places to stay in the surrounding area.
I look forward to the trading standards report following our complaint.

Management Response
7 Aug 2016
These people booked for a couple of weeks but liked it so much they actually stayed twelve weeks. All the electrical work is checked by an
electrician. There is no sign saying the immersion heater can only be left on for fifteen minutes. The fire was fitted by a hetas engineer. Coal, firelighters and anthracite are provided. Internet on mobile date works perfectly. These people had the money reduced by £100 per week (Long stay terms) I have never been rude to any guests on any
occasion. This woman is deluded and venomous.

“Country comfort.”
Reviewed 15 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Honeysuckle cottage is a spacious well equipped cottage albeit some distance from Chester and very much in a rural area. Bed and lounge suite were modern and comfortable. The property has a lovely rustic charm. A farm with cows was the outlook from the front windows. Some noise from these and accompanying smells outside. Using the wood fires to heat water was an experience (although can use electricity if that's not your thing). Parking at the front is a little tight on the narrow road and the property is not well identified from the road if you don't have satnav. Be aware of steep stairway to both upstairs bedrooms. No dryer but clothesline in backyard.
