Photos and Description of this Tarporley holiday barn

Barn in Burland, Nantwich, Cheshire, England - Country Location On The Edge Of Public Footpaths But A Short Drive To Nantwich

SPECIAL WINTER OFFERS MID WEEK. ENQUIRE WITH YOUR DATES FOR A QUOTE. Recently fully renovated, but dating back to the late 1800s, Pinfold Barn offers great features such as round windows and exposed beams whilst being up to modern spec. Great for a family holiday, or a get together with friends and family. You’ll find all home comforts including a fully fitted and equipped farmhouse Oak kitchen, a large lounge with Oak floors, over-sized comfy sofas, flat screen TV with freesat, DVD, iPod docks and WiFi. Downstairs there’s also a spacious hall, shower room and utility room with fridge / Freezer, washing machine, dryer and boot sink. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms; the principle room having open vaulted ceiling, exposed beams and stunning 4 poster King size bed with John Lewis Vi spring mattress and en-suite bathroom! There’s another King bedroom and a quirky twin room with round window and skylight. There are 3 luxuriously fitted bathrooms including a large indulgent tub with claw and ball feet in the spacious family bathroom. There’s a range of books and family games, including a connected Wii system with over 30 games to keep you occupied. The extensive patio has tables, chairs and loungers and a BBQ for the outdoors cooks. If the home comforts aren’t enough to keep you at the Barn there’s a lot to do in the locality; For the foodies, the local historic market town of Nantwich has some great coffee shops, delis and eateries. Theres a monthly farmers market and a great weekly market. Nantwich is a haven for foodies and was recently rated one of the best 20 towns in the Telegraph foodies ratings! There’s some fabulous pubs famed for their award winning food. We are close to The Thatch, a 15th century coaching inn, The Fox and Barrel and The Dysart Arms to name only a handful! A few minutes away is the Cholmondeley Arms, a converted school with a reputation for its range of gins. A historic watering spot for Clarissa Dickson Wright. The local Co-op in Bunbury offers a wide range of essentials and local produce. Our village of Burland retains its farming heritage and today its mostly organic farms with fantastic local produce, so there’s plenty of fresh produce direct from our farms if you want to cook. For the shoppers, Nantwich has a range of individually owned boutiques and antique shops – head down Hospital Street for a great browse. The Georgian village of Tarporley is 10 minutes away with fabulous shops (as well as distinctive pubs and wine bars including for example "The Swan" (headquarters of the "Cheshire Hunt") We’re close to the Potteries Outlet and the famous Cheshire Oaks Outlets. Or head to Chester – 20 minutes away.

If you like the outdoor life we’ve got a bundle of fantastic walks on the doorstep. Walk out of the front door and join the public footpath across the countryside, take a trip to Beeston Castle and walk up through the ramparts to the old castle, call in at Peckforton Castle for a fabulous Bistro lunch and a look at the birds of prey or even book into their Landrover driving experience or their Crazy golf course. We’ve got 4 bikes available too if you want to explore the area on 2 wheels – gentle riding and no steep hills! Or maybe you just want a quiet retreat away from the madding crowd. There’s an 8 acre field for the kids to play in at the back, and with plenty of country wildlife, a garden full of birds, bees and butterflies and the occasional bat fly pasts (if you’re quiet at dusk) it’s a perfect retreat.

About Alison Zakers

We live on Pinfold Farm in the beautiful rural village of Burland and have converted our Barn as a luxury holiday home from home. We have lived here for 16 years and hope you will enjoy a stay in the countryside. We are on hand to help with anything should you need it however the barn is detached and private with fencing between the properties. Happy to help with planning your holiday so that you have the best time possible.

Why Alison Zakers chose Cheshire West & Chester

It's out in the countryside but not far from town for all your shopping. Nantwich is a historical market town with plenty of old buildings and private shops with regular markets. There's lot of farm shops for great food and brilliant old pubs with roaring fires and quirky interiors. We're a short drive from Wales for the beaches. A great location for a holiday with lots of potential for action packed days or a real quiet retreat.

What makes this barn unique

There's access to 4 bikes and a running machine. Lots of lego to play with for kids. A Wii machine with plenty of games, a ukulele, family games and tons of books and DVDs!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have a guest book full of positive comments from guests from Australia, The Bahamas and Yorkshire....

"A great girls get together made special by having your beautician come around for treatments on the Friday..."

"All the home comforts you need and more...."

"A real gem of a holiday home - we don't want to leave..."

Amazing get away from the hustle and bustle of manchester

  • 5 of 5

We had an lovely stay at the barn, my 3 children loved the amount of children's toys/dvds provided. The owner took us to see the organic milking farm opposite and she took the time out to talk us through all the local attractions and restaurants. We will definitely be visiting again, there's so much to do and see.

Very comfortable stay and nearby Nantwich is a great place to shop and eat out

  • 4 of 5

Very comfortable stay, the beds are exceptionally comfortable.

Nearby Nantwich is a great place to shop and eat out with lovely independent shops and plenty of places to eat out that offer Gluten free / Coeliac menu's

The 3 bathrooms were very useful for a family of 5

The place is easy to find with the postcode provided and the back garden is not overlooked with the trees, which made it feel secluded.

All appliances worked well and kitchen equipment was adequate, although a couple of the small cooking utensils could do with being renewed.

Overall the place was clean.

The wifi was useful, however the kids complained it was a little slow and connection could take a while, we understand that the Barn is rural and this is to be expected.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend others and would also be happy to stay again if we were going to stay in Cheshire again

A gorgeous cottage that is impressive stocked and in a lovely location in rural cheshire

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Pinfold Barn. It was perfect for us, our two kids and my in laws. The decoration is lovely and it has everything you will need. Best range of kitchen utensils, plates etc. that i've come across in a self catering cottage and all the other little bits like tea towels and cleaning stuff too.

There's a fab roll top bath and all the bedrooms are a good size and clean and cosy.

The kids loved kicking a ball about in the garden and making a racket on the drum kit in the play garage!

Lots of fab stuff to do locally too, we had a great day out at Chester Zoo and enjoyed visiting the Ice Cream Farm. Local pubs are good too especially the Cholmondeley Arms - great place! Nice and easy to get to Sainsburys to stock up too :)

A beautiful home in the country.

  • 5 of 5

Our family (including three teenagers) very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, spacious home. All the comforts of home were here, and we made good use of the kitchen for breakfasts and dinner. My wife and daughter each enjoyed relaxing baths in the clawfoot tub. We would love to be able to return and stay here again one day and highly recommend this property.
