{You have thought of so many extras and homely touches that really make Bakers Cottage feel like a home from home. The bed linen and towels are good quality and the photographs are a very accurate represention of your lovely cottage. We appreciated the large selection of maps, guide books and menus that you provided. We thought the cottage was exceptionally well stocked and we can't think of anything at all that we needed but was not supplied.

{We had a lovely time thanks. The cottage was great - no complaints at all. The little welcome treats were fabulous and greatly appreciated, and we felt cosy and Christmassy while there! We will return again… Christmas at Chester is becoming a bit of a tradition!
Lindsay B from Liverpool, 3rd stay, December 2023
{Being December and the weather being often very cold and wet we really enjoyed staying indoors. Spending time cooking nice meals, doing a 1,000 piece jigsaw together, having a bath or sitting together in the front room by the Christmas tree watching a DVD. It was our annual gettogether as long term friends and Baker's Cottage was a perfect place for that. We could go out and sample some English way of life and enjoy staying at a very nice and cosy home!
Kerstin M from Hamburg, December 2019
{We had a lovely Christmas day with Paul's mum able to come & visit us. Lovely Christmas decorations & small touches that made it special!
