Reviews of Dairy Apartment 1
"Despite awful weather we enjoyed our stay at the ground floor Dairy Apartment 1 on the Tatton Estate. A cosy two bed roomed apartment was sufficiently spacious for our needs. Extra crockery would have been helpful but otherwise it was well equipped. Central heating was effective and a cosy log fire at night was lovely. The walks in the Tatton Estates are legion and situated on the Cheshire plain they are very easy. The gardens, to which we had free access, are a delight even in winter. The village of Knutsford is close by and has some great restaurants, shops and amenities."

"Thank you for making our first visit to Knutsford and Tatton Park very special. The cottage really was superb and our evenings outside the same, enjoying the beautiful surroundings and gardens. This was a great base as we were visiting the area because our teenage son was completing his work experience in Wilmslow and Knutsford. The free passes and starter pack were a brilliant idea and very much appreciated. Most definitely 5 star."

"The setting is just magical! Tatton Park as your backyard. Walking through the farm with its reindeer, pigs, sheep, ducks and geese, to get to the main park was delightful. The free entry tickets for the mansion and all parts of Tatton Park was an unexpected extra. We could have spent a whole week just exploring the house and gardens. The Dairy Apartment itself is so comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by the lovely basket of goodies. We were also very grateful for the logs and fire lighters for the wood burning stove. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was amazingly powerful! I could just go on and on about how lovely this place is.."

"We rented Dairy Cottage #1 for a week during February 2013. We actually stayed only five nights there, so we could travel a bit more. Five nights at the weekly rate was still a bargain. The cottage is beautiful, spacious, cozy, comfortable. The setting is beautiful. I heard an owl at night while awake reading. I had a bit of trouble with the TV and staff sorted out the problem within minutes of my complaint. I loved walking from the cottage through the park, to the shops. All staff very friendly and helpful. We will be back!!"

"Cottage was nice and clean on arrival, keys were in pre-arranged place. Kitchen well equipped, heating was good and all other facilities good. Only possible criticisms were that extractor fan in bathroom was inadequate i.e. not able to cope with moisture following a hot shower and neighbours could be heard clearly at times through the adjoining doorway, had there been any children residing next door I would expect the noise to be even more noticeable. Location ideal for walks in Tatton Park."

"We enjoyed being able to walk in the gardens and the park whenever we wanted as well as being close to Knutsford. We chose the cottage because we were interested in Mrs Gaskell's connection with Knutsford and her basing Cranford there. Unusually for our holidays in this country there were quite a few negatives. The access was a bit hard to find and we continued to come into the Park by the Knutsford entrance. We couldn't work out how to use the microwave and no-one else in the office could either and they had to send for the instructions. This took time to sort out and it was never solved. I don't think such a complicated microwave is suitable for holiday accomodation. More seriously the holiday was marred by the lack of sound proofing between the two cottages. When we were resting on a rainy Sunday we couldn't read for the noise of the children next door which was not at an abnormal level. We could hear ordinary conversation and we never felt completely private."

Also impressed with nearby town of Knutsford where we shopped and visited their Heritage Museum."

"Lovely cottage, but spoilt by having the next doors cottage patio right outside our bedroom window, which meant in the heat of July we could not have the windows open. Otherwise passes to Tatton park included which were much appreciated, and peaceful walks abundant. The cottage was well equipped but much more geared up to being a big family taking both cottages together. The downstairs where we were is very noisy with a family next door, their rooms are also above the bedrooms which was unavoidably noisy to us downstairs, especially when the upstairs bathroom fan runs in the night, it is very loud downstairs."
