Lake View Cottage was one of the most memorable holidays we have had over the past 20 years.. The cottage was superb, set in beautiful countryside, and we had the warmest of welcomes from our hosts.The accommodation was absolutely lovely, with space, convenience and comfort of the highest order. There was lots to do all within easy reach: Wales, Chester, the potteries, friendly pubs and restaurants...to name but a few! However, the abiding memories are of peace, tranquility and a wonderful night sky..the latter being something to be savoured when used to town living.
Beautiful cottage in very peaceful surroundings..
Mrs Towler, August 2020
Lovely accommodation and setting.. Very pleasant hosts. Definitely reccomend a visit
Mr Machen, August 2020
The cottage was absolutely beautiful, especially the staircase and the mezzanine area, perfect place to relax and enjoy the gorgeous views.. We went after lockdown was eased so the owners were understandably shielding, but were still lovely and welcoming despite having to keep a distance. A number of reviewers have mentioned the road leading up to the cottage. We drove a low profile city car who's wheels are mainly rims and very little tyre and we found that yes, there were some bumpy spots here and there, but you'll be fine if you drive slow and careful. And honestly, when you get to the cottage, whatever little bumps you experienced for 5 minutes will be totally worth it. Our kids loved the neighbouring sheep and donkeys, the very free range chickens and geese were such a novelty too and be sure not to miss the amazing sunsets viewable from the paddock. We were lucky to have a clear night and enjoyed the most amazing star studded sky ever without even having to step out. The cottage itself was beautiful, clean and comfortable, well stocked with all the necessary amenities. We had a brilliant week.
Mrs Akhtar, July 2020
Lake View cottage is absolutely stunning.. Myself and friends had a fabulous relaxing weekend away at this beautiful house. Julie is a fantastic host, making sure we had everything we needed. Communication was great and we were even greeted with a gorgeous homemade Victoria Sponge cake on arrival. The spectacular views (and Donkeys) were lovely to wake up to each morning. Thank you for a fabulous stay.
Miss Isherwood, February 2020
The House was spacious, clean and comfortable.. Relaxing views and a peaceful environment, Perfect hosts, We intend to use this cottage again in the future, A very enjoyable stress free holiday.
Ms Gaines, August 2019
A lovely quiet location for a peaceful holiday.. Good facilities in the house, great views and not far from all the places we wanted to visit.
Mr Brook, September 2019
This property is fabulous and ideal for for multi generational families.. The owners were helpful and pleasant. The farm is peaceful and the animals delighted our grandson. Highly recommend .There was plenty to see and do . We visited Shrewsbury's Jail House, The secret bunker, Chester Zoo,BlitsHill Victorian Village and RAF Cosford's air museum.
A lovely holiday in a beautiful area and delightful property.
Mrs Curry, June 2019
The cottage was superb in a beautiful location with friendly owners next door.. It was very well equipped and furnished to a high standard and a lovely homely and warm interior. I would recommend this cottage to anybody who wants a nice peaceful relaxing holiday with the added benefit of wildlife just outside your door. I generally make a rule of not going back to a place again as I like to see different parts of the country, I may make an exception here and book again.
Mrs Saddleton, August 2019
Had the most amazing, relaxing time at Lake View.. The host was most attentive with great communication prior and during our stay.
Would love to come back!
Mr Pocock, June 2019
Stayed ay Lakeview Cottage for our fourth time at the begining of May.. Everything was perfect as usual. The owners Julie and Andrew are exceptional hosts and very friendly.We were lucky to see new born lambs on this visit which was lovely. The setting, views and the standard of accommodation are wonderful and we would highly recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday. Sue and Paul
Mr Cornwell, April 2019
A Wonderful cottage.. This was our second stay and it was exceptional on both occasions. Andrew & Julie are perfect hosts. Their little touches of him baked cake, Easter eggs for the girls, fresh milk & eggs.. perfect. The cottage is excellent and fully equipped home from home. We love the animals just roaming and the beautiful garden and lake... a wonderful stay....again.
Lake View Cottage is very spacious and comfortable.. The location and views are exceptional and the owner, Julie, is very friendly and helpful and yet avoids being obtrusive. We had a delightful and very relaxing stay and would happily come again.
Mrs Ashmore, May 2019
We all absolutely loved our time at Styche farm, we had a lovely welcome from Julie and Andrew and felt at home straight away, we can’t fault any part of our holiday, from booking with Sykes to the week away at the farm..
Lake View Cottage is an absolutely wonderful place to spend time.. Our hostess, Julie, was attentive just at the right times and is such a lovely person. The house itself was amazing and definitely surpassed what we expected to be a lovely place. It is a fantastic space, inside and out, excellently equipped and beautifully, most comfortably furnished.
Although on a farm, there was no disturbance at all and, had we had little ones with us, I understand it would have been possible to see the animals with supervision.
We'd visited with our adult children for a time of rest and relaxation and that is what we experienced, spending most of our time in the home.
The only hurdle is the slow drive down the last mile of country road, due to road condition but it wouldn't stop us going there again. The effort was well worth it.
I highly recommend Lake View Cottage
The directions were great because it is a bit of the beaten track.. Wonderful gluten free cake on arrival
Birthday card because they knew it was a birthday party.
Tour of the baby heifers.
Nothing too much trouble.
The cottage was superb,very clean,and everything you could need was there.. The welcome and the cake from the owners was great.
The only negative was the last 3/4 mile drive up the farm track.it was very bumpy and the car got covered in mud.
Everything else about the cottage was really great
David Carter stayed 9/11 until 16/11/2018
Fabulous, spacious extremely well equipped property in a beautiful, peaceful setting.. Owners very attentive.
Excellent base to get out and about the cottage itself was quite comfortable and is quite big inside.. The mezzanine floor level is superb to read books and just relax you won't be disappointed.
The owners are all to willing to help in any way possible. All in all this was a great experience for me and my family
This was a lovely secluded property which was beautifully laid out within and set in an idyllic location.. The split level organisation of the main room worked well for a family who were doing different things together (and let mum and dad keep an eye on what the kids were upto without cramping their style). A fantastic place for a holiday.
The mile drive to the property is not suitable for low cars as it's really a farm track.. The owners are exceptionally helpful and friendly.
We had a great time in this beautiful property.. It is well maintained and has lovely countryside views. There are however a couple of points I would like to raise. The 3 miles from Market Drayton will take 20 minutes to get there. The track to the property certainly feels more than a mile, and to exceed more than 5 miles an hour on it is asking for trouble. It is totally isolated. We walked into Market Drayton across the fields and it is a lovely walk, but you could not do that if you were going out for the evening in nice clothes and shoes. A car is a must. Clearly the owners have spent a lot of money on the property but I would willingly have paid a little more to ensure the occupiers do not have to provide their own toilet rolls, kitchen towel and washing up liquid. All were in short supply. These are only minor niggles and may seem petty to mention, but if the owners were to provide an adequate stock they would be close to having the perfect property.
Lakeview cottage is in a beautiful, peaceful, picturesque setting and its owners Julie and Andrew are very welcoming.. The accomodation is very comfortable with all the amenities you would expect from a property of this quality. I would not hesitate to recommend Lakeview cottage.
Exactly as Sykes on line details.. The most beautiful house surroundings and the owners were beyond expectations. We have booked with Sykes before and never been let down.
The house is extremely spacious with lovely views of the countryside and the Lake from the upper floor lounge.. The house is very well equipped with a large fridge/freezer and lots of pots, pans, crockery and cutlery. In fact everything that you could possibly need. Our hosts provided a lovely chocolate cake which was very welcome.
We are a group of six family members who meet up every Spring and look for 3 double rooms with bathrooms. We all agreed that Lake View Cottage is the best we have visited to-date.
There are lots of places to visit in the area which is a bonus.
This is an amazing place to stay, so relaxing.. Julie and Andrew are very friendly, allowing us to see lambs being born. Would love to return.
From arriving at the cottage we were greeted by the owner, when we entered it was excellent.. It was open plan on ground floor and was great as we all liked it. All the amenities were great ,bedrooms were lovely .
It was so quite and so relaxing. Would recommend this cottage to anyone who enjoys peace & quite.
Mrs Harmer, March 2017
A beautiful home in a stunning setting.. Everything provided for and owners were very helpful when we had questions. We didn't explore the surrounding area much as we wanted a relaxing break from city life. Simply perfect break, we couldn't have asked for anything more.
Lovely house set in beautiful surroundings.. Very helpful hosts,nothing too much trouble. Privileged to see newborn calves and lambs on their working farm. The grandchildren loved giving the donkeys an apple a day! The panoramic windows offer the most wonderful views,binoculars provided to watch the wildlife! Large living area, wonderful kitchen all kept lovely and warm by underfloor heating. Welcome homemade cake was delicious!!!!!! The homemade chutney and jams looked so delicious we had to buy one. We will definitely return for another wonderful break.
It was the most amazing break, quiet rural location, accommodation was top marks! We would be very happy to stay here again and can highly recommend staying here.
Miss Gallagher, February 2017

Mr Freeman, August 2016
Very warm welcome! Such a wonderful place! The garden was very beautiful and the animals were lovely for the children. The house was very big and really comfortable and clean. It was way prettier than we expected. We would definitely stay there again. The best Cottage we have ever stayed in. Thank you.
Lake View Cottage is very spacious; we particularly liked the mezzanine lounge. Very peaceful with lovely countryside views.
An excellent property with brilliant owners who went out of their way to give us a warm and friendly welcome set in a brilliant location with fantastic views for peace and quiet that is within easy reach of plenty of things to do and see.

An absolutely brilliant weekend. The property is gorgeous, so comfortable and well furnished. It is set in the most beautiful grounds. The owners were so welcoming and helpful. The kitchen, dining and living room areas were great for socialising and cooking together. The bedrooms and numerous bathrooms were very comfortable with incredible views. It was the perfect location for a luxury getaway. We didn't want to leave!

We loved our stay at Lake View Cottage. The location was peaceful and we felt at home straight away. The cottage is kept lovely and warm, and the open-plan is great for young children. We couldn't have been happier with our stay and it was a great family cottage.

Mrs Williams, January 2016
The owners had gone to great lengths to make the house lovely for us.. The décor was great, everything was scrupulously clean, the beds were comfy, the kitchen well-equipped, and the underfloor heating kept us really toasty. We loved the spacious feel of the open plan living space too, and of course that breathtaking view, complete with festive flock of sheep and donkeys! It all added up to a memorably magical Christmas.
The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, it was first class in every way. In a wonderful location and the owners were very friendly, helpful and kind. A perfect holiday.
Mrs Davison, September 2015
The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, it was first class in every way.. In a wonderful location and the owners were very friendly, helpful and kind. A perfect holiday.
We nicknamed this property 'the mansion', we all agreed that we have never been in anything like it! It was tremendous, so bright and warm. We were all disappointed when it was time to leave and are definitely going back next year.
An amazing house with stunning gardens, couldn't fault this place at all. In a beautiful setting with lots to do nearby. 2 adults 3 kids very had a very happy British holiday. 5 star!
Both Andrew & Julie are very hospitable and exceptionally accommodating. We arrived late due to traffic and road closures, Julie was kind enough to agree to sign for our supermarket delivery order.
Once we arrived, we were warmly greeted by Andrew, just before Julie arrived and gave us an equally warm welcome.
As we entered the cottage it has such a lovely warm almost chalet like feel about it. We were given a tour and told there was a welcome basket for us.
Butter, bread, crisps, biscuits, tea, coffee and milk. Perfect for a quick snack and a cup of tea!
We explored the place and found it to be really nice. The kitchen is spacious and well equipped.
We had even been given a cake to welcome us with a note telling us it was a Victoria sponge that was wheat and gluten free. Absolutely delicious!
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
Follow the directions that Julie sends out and it will lead you to the farm and the cottage.
