The Experience

Off the main road, past the redbrick houses (one of which is the delightful owners’) and there it is: a pretty little former cattle shed, all on one level, with a pitched roof and a private drive. A couple will feel romantic here, but there’s room for a baby too – and the family dog. The space was once used as stables before Chris and Graham converted it themselves.

A wood-burner keeps things cosy and you’ll find plenty of logs. There is a leafy, private garden with barbecue and an oak garden building with stunning views. After a long, lovely walk you can have a soak in the claw-footed tub with a glass of something local.

There’s an excellent gastropub a three-minute walk away and a golf course over the road with a fabulous spa if you need any pampering. The farm shop in nearby Holt has local produce and you can pick your own fruit in summer. Pack up a picnic for walking the Sandstone Trail.

We had a fabulous week staying at Barton Bank, a cosy cottage perfectly located for exploring the countryside around Chester and Wrexham (we did a day trip to Conwy, explored nearby Delamere Forest, and did some lovely walks along the River Dee). Chris and Graham are wonderful hosts, and gave excellent recommendations for good food and pubs in the local area. The cottage is fitted out with everything you could need, plus lovely touches like fairy lights and a fire pit. We loved our chilled evenings on the private decking (and our spaniel had a great time exploring the field)!

Emily, Rugby

This cozy little cottage has a very efficient woodburner which is lit for your arrival and can be quickly relit when returning from your day's activity. Chris and Graham provide a generous selection of breakfast ingredients and some sweet treats for cosy evenings in. The double bed is comfortable and the bedding is of good quality. We were staying during the week of major storms so we were not able to enjoy all of the outdoor activities we had planned but felt safe and warm throughout our stay.

Carol, Marlborough

second time we have stayed here & would thoroughly recommend it.The owners are a lovely couple & very willing to help if needed.Will definitely stay again.

Wendy, Somerset

What a beautiful place to stay. A perfect place for a work meeting or a romantic getaway. So many people said ‘just what we needed’ in the visitors book; I said a stay at Barton should be on prescription.

Jackie, Portsmouth

After a few hours spent exploring the Sandstone Trail from the starting point of the medieval Beeston Castle, what could be more relaxing then to rest your weary legs sitting outside under the shelter of the cottage's oak garden structure? Glass of chilled wine or the local brew in hand, watching the owners' horses graze peacefully in their field in front of you.

Karen, Sawday's inspector

Wonderful in every way.


27 steps to an idyllic hideaway for two! Snug but oh so perfectly formed with everything you could ever need for a romantic getaway for two. Tranquil, cozy, and welcoming, we felt ‘at home’ almost from the minute we arrived. We received a warm friendly welcome from the owner but this was never intrusive and he was extremely helpful in ‘local knowledge’. The ‘breakfast pack’ was superb! Generous, and catered for all tastes. I cannot wait to return in the near future and wouldnt hesitate to recommend Barton Bank Cottage to everyone I know!


Brilliant. 4 days of peaceful tranquility. No traffic noise, well appointed cottage. Owners very friendly but left you to your own devices. Will definately be booking again.

The neighbourhood

Turn off the main road that connects Wrexham with Nantwich and find yourself in charming Barton which has a great pub (The Cock O’Barton) and nearby Holt (five minutes) has a village store and farm shop. The cottage is tucked behind the owner’s house, facing paddocks and enclosed by trees and hedges; it feels private. Beeston Castle is six miles, Bolesworth is four. Stretton Mill is a short stroll away across fields and there are off road walks from the front gate.

Local points of interest from Graham Garrod

  • Great Bar/restaurant 3 minutes walk. Plenty of great dining pube within 10 minutes drive
  • Off road walking from front gate across fields to local lakeside café or across the golf course to ancient Stretton Water Mill, which does guided tours.
  • A short drive to Cheshire's Sandstone trail for scenic walks to The pheasant inn at Burwardesley
  • 10 miles to Historic Chester, for great shopping dining and Culture
  • Easy reach of National Trust properties at Erddig Hall and Chirk Castle


Graham Garrod

Chris and Graham – friendly, welcoming – hail from Cheshire and have lived in Barton for over 15 years. They’re big supporters of their community and can give advice on things to see and do - just pop across to the main house where they live with their friendly rescued pointer Lenny.
