    About this property

    This charming, Grade II listed 17th century thatched cottage rests in the idyllic village of Bunbury in Cheshire, with good transport links to the cities of Chester, Manchester and Liverpool. The cottage has been lovingly-restored to provide a comfortable holiday accommodation for families and friends, whilst preserving the character of a 350-year-old building. The cosy sitting room is atmospheric and the oldest part of the cottage, complete with 17th century oak beams, original tiled flooring and a woodburning stove, perfect for a cosy night in on the sofa. The kitchen provides an ample selection of appliances to assist you throughout your stay, whilst the well-presented dining room offers a formal environment to enjoy your meals. Upstairs rests the two well-presented bedrooms: a double and a twin which is ideal for younger guests. Enjoy a lawned garden to the front of the property, with an alternative patio to the rear. The village of Bunbury captures the quintessential feel of the area perfectly, offering essential amenities including a supermarket and three pubs to try. Bunbury was also used as the location for the ITV drama Home Fires. The woodland trail of Beeston Castle and the magnificent Sandstone Trail is less than ten minutes away, so there should be plenty of outdoor activity on your agenda. Look further afield and you have access to three vibrant cities including Chester, Liverpool and Manchester which are perfect choices for a day out. If you fancy a rural retreat away from the rush of everyday life, Chapel Cottage has all you could ask for.

    Bunbury is a pretty village situated in the heart of Cheshire, to the south of Tarporley and the north west of Nantwich. Many people will recognise the village as ‘Great Paxford’ from the ITV series ‘Home Fires’. There is a coffee shop, three pubs, a local supermarket and the impressive Church of Saint Bonifiace and a monument of Sir George Beeston in the village. The Shropshire Union canal passes through the village and the staircase lock is a popular attraction.

    " Two other pubs within walking distance - all do food. Cottage is well placed for days out and the park and ride into Chester works well. "

    " We didnt need to contact the owners during the week as everything worked as it should. Bunbury is a lovely friendly village with interesting old buildings, especially upper Bunbury. Chapel cottage is in a good location but the main road that passes the end of the cottage is quite busy. We made good use of the friendly Co-Op & the Nags Head pub but found the Dysart a bit pretentious IMO, £9.35 for a pint & a coke. Probably priced to keep the rif-raf away, it certainly worked as we didnt go back. The village chippy has a good reputation but was sadly closed whilst we were there. The gardens were well tended & the back patio area was a lovely suntrap but could be a bit noisy from the road traffic & people stopping to talk just over the hedge but it was quite interesting listening to the local gossip. We made lots of use of the lovely kitchen but it could do with some extra basic utensils such as plastic spoons & masher etc. Lovely downstairs bathroom with good bath & shower but the shiny floor tiles were a bit slippery when wet & would benefit from a proper bath mat, the upstairs WC was quite novel & felt a bit like going to the loo in a cupboard. The cottage is advertised as a two bedroom suitable for 4 people & has dining seating for six, it has a double bed in one bedroom & two singles in the other but the lounge has only a two seater sofa & a single rocking chair & a dining chair so there wasn`t adequate comfortable seating for four adults. We went as a couple but had made the offer to my son & his wife to visit us at the cottage but on finding that there was insufficient comfortable practical seating we had to sadly withdraw the offer. As I stated in the cottage visitors book another two seater sofa in the lounge would solve the issue & provide comfortable seating to sit & enjoy the big TV & the wood burning stove in the evening. My comments are my personal opinion & meant to be informative & constructive & we would love to return to Chapel cottage if they were taken onboard by the owners. "

    " ( only written on a page in the middle of a book which if you dont look at you dont see it ) We think they need to provide a stair gate if this is the case as the stairs are fully open in the middle of the property "
    Mrs Attenburrow ‐ 1 Apr 2021
    "Was just a little frustrated that there was never enough hot water to have a decent bath. There was an amazing huge bath in the bathroom but never more than a couple of inches of hot water!! Other than that we had a great few days away and would definitely go back again."

    " Bunbury is a lovely village. Great cafe Tilly's almost next door and very good local butchers, coop store. Within walking distance the Dysart Arms is excellent excellent for food and local ales. "

    " “Close to lots of attractions. Very quiet village with very friendly people. The only thing that we would change is the sofa in the lounge, it was a bit small and not the most comfortable, but other than that everything was perfect.” "
    Mrs Pearce-bolton
    " Very well maintained and presented in a tranquil little village. The cottage itself had almost everything we needed. There's a notice asking that guests don't let their pets go upstairs. Thankfully we'd taken a baby gate with us, otherwise I don't know how we'd have managed that. A wooden gate at the bottom of the stairs would be a good addition to the cottage for this reason. The cottage has a large front and back garden which is surrounded by walls and hedges. Whilst the garden is flat and safe for children/dogs, the hedges between the garden and pavement do have some small gaps in them and our dog managed to get through onto the road. Some additional netting/fencing in the hedges would make this more secure. The village had two pubs within a short walking distance of the cottage. Both offered takeaway food if you didn't want to eat in, which was very nice. The local butchers and village chippy were also great, and there's a little co-op for other groceries/essentials. "
