This is our second year running of booking Manor Wood and we love it. The house is perfect for a large family (has two separate living spaces) and is really well stocked. The beds are super comfy, great views of the lake, lovely walking nearby....and who doesn’t love a roaring log fire on a chilly night? It’s priced very competitively for what it is and we have thoroughly enjoyed our time here. And oh, if you’re a clean freak, you won’t be disappointed! It’s spotless.
We had a terrific pre-xmas, family weekend at Manor Wood. As our family is now dispersed at Xmas itself this was a great opportunity to have everyone under one roof.
On arrival the property was warm and inviting, nicely decorated with Xmas decorations. The space itself is fabulous, and plenty of room both in a terrific kitchen which has plenty of workspace and both Aga and Standard ovens.
The two lounges give great choice, it was great to retreat to the large sitting room in an evening for a bit of peace, whilst others enjoyed music in the grand conservatory. The log burners were used to great effect, and added a great atmosphere for us.
The bedrooms are also spacious and well laid out. Amazingly quiet and well soundproofed.
The weather was cold and wintery (to say the least) but that didn't dampen our spirits or enjoyment. There are plenty of opportunities for walks, and ease of access by car to the surrounding area, and Chester is an easy 30 minutes away.
The pool and hot tub were not suitable of course in winter, and it should be noted they are not within the immediate grounds of the house itself, rather in the adjacent caravan park area. Also note to take your own basic utility provisions such as soap, loo roll, washing up liquid etc, etc as there is only what others have left by way of initial supplies.
Overall, absolutely fantastic value for money, we tried to rebook for next year and sadly Manor Wood was already full!!
We booked Manor Wood through Sykes cottages, choosing a 5 tick property to ensure a high standard after a previous bad experience. Manor Wood is absolutely superb. We stayed for a week with our 4 children aged 8-15 and the accommodation provided all the space we needed. The house is extremely well equipped and well maintained. Cleanliness is important to me in a holiday home and Manor Wood was spotless. The views are beautiful and the pool at the adjoining campsite provided hours of fun for my younger children.
We went on day trips to Chester and Quarry Bank and this property was an excellent base. Highly recommend. 5 star would visit again in the future.
