A Beautiful Dog Friendly Cottage With A Wildlife Pond

    Sleeps 2-6 people or 8 if booked with Oaktree

    Non-smoking

    Oakpond is a warm and cosy traditional semi-detached country cottage which has lovely views from every window and is perfect for couples and the smaller family group and if booked with Oaktree, it will sleep 8 people. (Please email us for a price if both cottages are required by the same party as there will be a discount) The cottage is surrounded by an abundance of trees and wildlife and sits sits in front of the beautiful wildlife pond which is home to the moorhens and squirrels which is perfect for people who love nature and require peace and quiet. The cottage has two gardens with one garden being safe and secure for one dog.

    Our farm and the cattle are housed 300 yards away from the cottage and so we will be on hand if there are any problems.

    Please note that we do not book out Oaktree (The annex)  if there are children or  more than 2 people booked into Oakpond and so therefore this will ensure complete privacy for all our guests.

    The patio is fenced for a small dog and we provide a stairgate across the kitchen french doors if a larger dog is staying. We love dogs as we have three rescue dogs ourselves but we would ask Guests, not to leave their dog alone in the cottage as dogs stress in strange surroundings and damage occurs. The cottage is kept in good order and so therefore no dogs on the furniture or beds.

    Kitchen

    This is a lovely country kitchen/diner which has french doors opening out onto the patio and garden with wonderful views of the wildlife pond. There is a microwave, a large 70/30 fridge freezer, dishwasher, tv/DVD and oven (electric) The pine dresser keeps all the games and jigsaws for those rainy days. A real traditional country kitchen.

    Lounge

    This cosy beamed Lounge is fully carpeted and has comfortable seating whilst watching the 40″ tv/DVD with free view. We do have a DVD library with a selection of films to watch. Views of the wildlife pond and gardens from your comfortable seating are lovely with the added comfort of the cosy glow of the wood burner (Electric) which perfect for those winter nights.

    Snug

    This room is perfect for guests who want to want their privacy as it is a very relaxing room to ponder in. There is a cd player and radio as well as a desk for your laptop. The information files on walks and where to go are kept in here as well as a good selection of reading books.

    The cottage is rural but only 10 minutes away from an award-winning canalside village and 2 lovely towns (Nantwich and Whitchurch ) as well as the beautiful Brown Moss Nature Reserve who has the Chef in the wood who sells very tasty home-made pies and pasties. We have five very good eating pubs including our village pub The Olde Jack Inn which is dog friendly (40-minute walk) and The White Lion at Ash and there is also a super Indian restaurant that will deliver to the cottages.
