Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Moyle
September 2020
Only problem was no internet
Mrs Ward
August 2020
The location was stunning and staff were really friendly and welcoming.. Had a wonderful time!
Mrs Ward, August 2020

The biggest problem with the cottage was, there was no WiFi.. This would probably put me off booking this cottage again.
Mrs Williams
April 2019
Some confusion over towel provision at this property.. Sykes say no towels but in fact towels provided. Generally good property however ants in kitchen are a problem, several damp patches and black mould - not the best for asthmatics . Adjoining door to apartment 2 (adjacent to dining table in only living area) meant we could hear TV and conversations in property next door - particularly when they were watching football! Location within Tatton Park is great however farm staff definitely viewed us as a nuisance. Can understand that to some extent but it made us feel uncomfortable on more than one occasion.

Took elderly parents away for a few days and we all enjoyed this apartment. Well appointed except for the oddness of the lack of matching and sufficient cutlery but comfy beds, cosy fire and very peaceful. Will definitely visit again

The cottage was comfortable, stylish, and mostly extremely clean (there was a soapy puddle in the soap dish in the bathroom), and the location couldn't be bettered.. Bedding and towels were of a lovely quality, and it was especially pleasing that the cleaning products (which were in good supply) were Ecover. Some sugar would have been useful (there was a very small number of sachets) and more than one loo roll would also have gone down well (we did leave the spares from the pack we bought!). Free entry to the park and gardens was also very welcome, and although we didn't make full enough use of it, we intend to make a repeat visit and will probably do so then - if we're not too tempted by the comforts of the cottage! Very happy.

The dairy in Tatton park is a gorgeous characterful property in a super location next to the farm.. We were delighted with the little supply of staples on arrival and the logs for the wood burner. The free pass to the farm, house and gardens was an added bonus. We were very comfortable and surprised by the high level of fixtures and fittings. There is plenty to do in the surrounding area, its a beautiful part of the country.
Mrs Evans
October 2018
The apartment is lovely and spacious, very well equipped and spotlessly clean.. Beds and sofas very comfortable with quality bedding and towels. The gates were no problem and the ducks, geese and chickens were delightful - also highly amusing if you are there at feeding time! (I never knew chickens could run that fast!) Only minor details marred our week - lack of wifi and phone signal was inconvenient. The family in the larger apartment above us were very noisy - they seemed to spend the nights stamping and jumping up and down - we were woken on several occasions during the night.
Mrs Lyon

We thought Dairy Cottage was adequate but drab and felt old fashioned.. It could benefit from some 'colour' and lacked tlc, particularly the garden area which was very unkempt. The kitchen was well equipped, the heating and hot water were excellent but we were disappointed in the poor quality of the bed linen and pleased we took our own.
Mrs Frazer-mackenzie

I love coming back to this cottage it is exquisite in every way, the setting in the magnificent Tatton Park makes for a memorable stay.. The high level of cleanliness is so much appreciated and so welcoming after a long journey. I do think the provisions could be more generous, one toilet roll for four, no shampoo, conditioner or body wash. There is little in the kitchen such as paper towel, Cling film, or aluminium foil. However all is forgiven as the beautiful surrounds, gorgeous bed linen and wild life work their magic !
Mrs Clayton
April 2018
The cottage is warm and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen.. The views are rather restricted. The cottage garden was a bit disappointing as it's just a grassy area rather than a garden as such but the general area is rural and access to Tatton Park is excellent. The noise from planes is intrusive if you aren't used to it. There is no wifi and no hairdryer.
March 2017
Despite awful weather we enjoyed our stay at the ground floor Dairy Apartment 1 on the Tatton Estate. A cosy two bed roomed apartment was sufficiently spacious for our needs. Extra crockery would have been helpful but otherwise it was well equipped. Central heating was effective and a cosy log fire at night was lovely. The walks in the Tatton Estates are legion and situated on the Cheshire plain they are very easy. The gardens, to which we had free access, are a delight even in winter. The village of Knutsford is close by and has some great restaurants, shops and amenities.
March 2017
My children enjoyed being at this cottage.. Key is delivered via a box, so it is self service (no human contact). Had to bring our own towels. No wifi. Lovely welcome pack on arrival & lots of space for everyone. Animals a bit draw card. A bit of an ordeal to get in via the gates, but yes, we enjoyed our stay!

August 2014
lovely venue, well equipped, comfortable. an enjoyable visit in every way. Handy for Knutsford, and no problem coming in and out once you have got the hang of the gates!
Mrs Hunter
July 2014
Thank you for making our first visit to Knutsford and Tatton Park very special. The cottage really was superb and our evenings outside the same, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and gardens. This was a great base as we were visiting the area because our teenage son was completing his work experience in Wilmslow and Knutsford. The free passes and starter pack were a brilliant idea and very much appreciated. Most definitely 5 star.
Mrs Mcmaster
July 2014
Well equipped, homely and just what we hoped for as we were at the Tatton flower show and looked forward to going back to the cottage.
Ms Martin
May 2014
The setting is just magical! Tatton Park as your backyard. Walking through the farm with its reindeer, pigs, sheep, ducks and geese, to get to the main park was delightful. The free entry tickets for the mansion and all parts of Tatton Park was an unexpected extra. We could have spent a whole week just exploring the house and gardens. The Dairy Apartment itself is so comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely basket of goodies. We were also very grateful for the logs and fire lighters for the wood burning stove. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was amazingly powerful! I could just go on and on about how lovely this place is..
Mr Donovan

The location in Tatton Park was ecellent. Getting a pass for free access to the facilities in the park was a real bonus.

A well maintained property in a peaceful location. Ideally situated for walking and/or cycling in Tatton Park.
Mrs Halsey
September 2013
Spacious cottage, nice to have two settees. The appliances were all in a very good state. We will come back as it is quite magical to be able to wonder out in the park, and the cottage itself is lovely.
Mrs Solly
August 2013
We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday. The location was ideal for the Tatton Flower Show and visiting surrounding attractions. The accommodation was superb and it was wonderful being able to walk around Tatton Park in the evening.
Mrs Lawson

We loved the venue and thought the cottage was fabulous.
Mrs Somerville
June 2013
We were all very impressed with the standard of the property throughout. It was in an excellent area and was exactly as described online. We visited Tatton Park and found the gardens especially pretty. The cottage was finished to a high degree and the kitchen was very well equipped. Overall, it made for a superb holiday experience.

A very nice renovated cottage on a beautiful location. Enough room for 3 adults. Cosy decoration. Close to the International Airport of Manchester, but the sound of airplanes did not bother us. Tatton Park is beautiful and you need to go there several times to see everything. Admission for the tenants of the cottage is free. Beautiful gardens too in Tatton Park. From the station of Altrincham you can go to the city of Manchester. Lots to see in this area.
Mrs Bunschoten-bolhuis

There is a lot to see in the area. Tatton Park is wonderful. The apartment is very comfortable and homely.

We rented Dairy Cottage #1 for a week during February 2013. We actually stayed only five nights there, so we could travel a bit more. Five nights at the weekly rate was still a bargain. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, cozy, comfortable. The setting is beautiful. I heard an owl at night while awake reading. I had a bit of trouble with the TV and staff sorted out the problem within minutes of my complaint. I loved walking from the cottage through the park, to the shops. All staff very friendly and helpful. We will be back!!
January 2013
Cottage was nice and clean on arrival, keys were in pre-arranged place. Kitchen well equipped, heating was good and all other facilities good. Only possible criticisms were that extractor fan in bathroom was inadequate i.e. not able to cope with moisture following a hot shower and neighbours could be heard clearly at times through the adjoining doorway, had there been any children residing next door I would expect the noise to be even more noticeable. Location ideal for walks in Tatton Park.
December 2012
Excellent service with warm comfortable furnishings were most appreciated. Superb location for really exploring tattoo park, local historic houses and gardens. Sadly, poor weather and local floods rather restricted what we first planned to do.
Mr Bostock
November 2012
A nice cottage and peaceful location.
Mr Parsons
October 2012
We have stayed twice this year, that says it all. The cottage is in the grounds of Tatton Park, what more could you want?
Mr Scholey
October 2012
Great location and the property was all you needed, simple, clean, smart and warm.
July 2012
A fantastic cottage in a fantastic location. Comfortable and beautifully decorated - we enjoyed the stay immensely. Access to the amazing Tatton Park House, farm and gardens was a lovely bonus.
May 2012
We enjoyed being able to walk in the gardens and the park whenever we wanted as well as being close to Knutsford. We chose the cottage because we were interested in Mrs Gaskell's connection with Knutsford and her basing Cranford there. Unusually for our holidays in this country there were quite a few negatives. The access was a bit hard to find and we continued to come into the Park by the Knutsford entrance. We couldn't work out how to use the microwave and no-one else in the office could either and they had to send for the instructions. This took time to sort out and it was never solved. I don't think such a complicated microwave is suitable for holiday accomodation. More seriously the holiday was marred by the lack of sound proofing between the two cottages. When we were resting on a rainy Sunday we couldn't read for the noise of the children next door which was not at an abnormal level. We could hear ordinary conversation and we never felt completely private.
Mrs Wilson
February 2012
The apartment is spacious, well-equipped and comfortable. During our stay it was bitterly cold so we were very glad that the heating was very efficient. Location is quiet with beautiful surroundings, wonderful to hear woodpeckers and owls so clearly. Staff at Tatton Park are all very friendly and helpful. Also impressed with nearby town of Knutsford where we shopped and visited their Heritage Museum.
October 2011
Lovely cottage, but spoilt by having the next doors cottage patio right outside our bedroom window, which meant in the heat of July we could not have the windows open. Otherwise passes to Tatton park included which were much appreciated, and peaceful walks abundant. The cottage was well equipped but much more geared up to being a big family taking both cottages together. The downstairs where we were is very noisy with a family next door, their rooms are also above the bedrooms which was unavoidably noisy to us downstairs, especially when the upstairs bathroom fan runs in the night, it is very loud downstairs.
Mr Morris
August 2011
Great central location for visiting Liverpool, Chester, North Wales, Manchester, and Cheshire attractions. Good value meals at Tatton Park Restaurant and lovely gardens and grounds to walk around.
Mr Jodko
August 2011
The cottage is in a lovely location and the park pass was an added bonus we took advantage of. The cottage was very comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. We wanted for nothing.
Miss Mumford
June 2011
Lovely walks from the property and wildlife watching in the park. Ideal location for visits to other attractions in the area and easy access to Knutsford.
Mrs Walkden
February 2011
The location was superb! We were near the farm and had lovely views of Tatton Park. The staff were friendly and extremely helpful - we can't praise them enough. The accommodation was perfect - well proportioned with a good layout and very clean. Parking was easy outside the cottage.

Mrs Stephens

The heating was a great plus point. A visit from the owners within the first 24 hours to clear up any queries and questions was helpful.
December 2009
Dairy Cottage was superb. From the minute we opened the door we knew we were somewhere special.The cottage was extremely well appointed and didn't seem like a holiday let at all.It was spacious and airy and a fantastic base for our family. The children loved the amenities that Tatton Park provided and we made great use of the farm and adventure park as well as the cafe ! The area was perfect for exploring and we visited Manchester,Chester and lots inbetween.We even managed a day at the beach in Wales, ice skating and swimming. I would thoroughly recommend it !
Mrs Mason

Fabulous surroundings, very friendly people working at Tatton Park, lots of deer, squirrels etc and spacious rooms in the apartment.

The ability to stroll at will around the grounds of Tatton Park. The peace and tranquility. The friendliness of the Tatton Park staff.
Mrs Morley

Super location,with easy access to Cheshire , North Wales and Manchester.It allowed our holiday to have something for everyone from beach to city to countryside.Tatton Park itself and Knutsford were lovely places to spend time and the children loved the farm and adventure playground
Mrs Cooper
August 2009
A beautiful cottage in beautiful surroundings. We both loved it and would gladly come back again. Very good value. Also, having the 'run' of the park in the evenings made for wonderful walks amongst deer along the lakes. Magical.
Mr Van Kessel
August 2009
We liked it very much that we had free access to Tatton Park. We were lucky to arrive just in time for the tour around the Mansion which we really enjoyed. The woodburner made the house very cosy during the evenings.
Mr Mrs Roberts

The family who stayed here (we used it for wedding guests) were delighted and wished they could stay longer. A large party of family popped in on their way home and several of them are planning to use the cottage next year.
Mrs Dodds
October 2008
Excellent base for touring. Easy access and parking. Comfortable sofas, very important. Nice to have the whole of Tatton Park available for walking straight from the door. Being newly converted, the house was very clean and fresh.
