We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! We loved the layout and luxury comforts. Our little daschund “Jemima!” Particularly loved the log burner. We found the Hollies farm shop near by and bought the luxury frozen ready meals and enjoyed fine dining and being snuggly at the same time.. lively complimentary ales & eggs from Kay. Will return again . Many thanks
Stayed here with our horses accommodated in the stables directly opposite and it was so convenient to have everything on your doorstep. Everything was catered for both in the lodge and the stable yard, even piped fresh water inside each stable. Good quality hay and straw readily available along with all mucking out equipment. Riding was brilliant and we were lucky with the weather for the time of year. Nearby Primrose wood was a lovely picturesque ride as was the Delamere forest although without transport it took almost an hour to hack there, but well worth it! Kelsall Hill equestrian centre is a short hack away and they provided access via Primrose woods to avoid the busy main road entrance. If you have horses that place is a must to visit!
The lodge at Barley Rise was 5*, again with everything you may need anticipated; washing up equipment, towels, tea towels, dishwasher tablets, fire lighters for the wonderful log burning stove......just everything! It was superbly clean with towels and bedding being top quality. Fabulous views over the paddock at the back there was no desire on our part to go out much during our stay as the lodge was so comfortable and luxurious (plus we were shattered!)
The lodge is next to a brewery and it was a lovely touch having a couple of bottles in the fridge when we arrived along with some fresh eggs from Kay's chickens. We couldn't have asked for anything better- very highly recommended!
Booked the Lodge for a long weekend to chill out and get away from it all. Absolutely amazing the lodge is immaculate very spacious and the sourrounding are beautiful yet not too far away from places to visit if you want to. Had an amazing weekend, Kay was lovely and would definitely recommend it and will also be revisiting x
Lovely lodge. Well furnished. Great kitchen. Wood burning stove was great, easy to use and very efficient. Wheelchair access into lodge was good though the path was a bit uneven. The biggest bugbear was internal thresholds - not easy for a wheelchair! Access to shower was a challenge. Overall a lovely stay in a lovely part of the country
Had a great time here with the grandchildren. Lovely accommodation, very comfortable with everything you need. Location is excellent, near Chester and the surrounding countryside. Kay is very welcoming and we look forward to our next visit.
