The
Experience

Delicious! Not just the food (Kate’s a pro chef) but the sweet whitewashed cottage with its sunny conservatory and vintage interiors, and the green Cheshire countryside that bubble-wraps the place in rural peace. Chat – and laugh – the evening away over Kate’s superb dinners, lounge by the fire, then sleep deeply in comfy bedrooms: cane beds, a bright red chair, a vintage desk. The double has a roll top bath, the twin a tiny shower-with-a-view. Wake for local bacon, sausages and honey and just-laid bantam eggs. Walk the 34-mile Sandstone Trail to Shropshire; Wales starts just past the hammock, at the bottom of the bird-filled garden.

Reviews

Mulsford Cottage is an absolute joy. A gracious welcome was offered by Paul who showed us to a charming room and then served us tea on the terrace. Later met with Kate(and her dogs) and looked forward to an evening meal which turned out to a delicious treat, reminiscent of rural France. Slept soundly on a comfortable mattress and enjoyed a tasty breakfast which included great scrambled eggs. Left the Cottage feeling totally relaxed and refreshed, having enjoyed excellent hospitality in beautiful surroundings.

James, Gateshead

Pretty cottage with lovely host Kate and her dogs. Tea and biscuits on arrival and Kate cooked a lovely big 3 course evening meal. (£30 pp with wine) Eggs from pet chickens went well with great breakfast and we left refreshed for our onward journey. Thank you Kate.

Andi, Marlow

What a fabulous place to stay. Room perfect and food was way beyond expectations. Kate is a wonderful hostess.

Fiona, London

Kate's lovely cottage made for a wonderful stopover on our long journey North. The bedroom, bathroom and generous sitting room were cosy, comfortable and welcoming and Kate was a warm and friendly host. The meal was beautifully cooked and enough to feed a small army. We did our best, Kate! We only wished we had been staying longer to enjoy more of the peaceful surroundings and the great food.

Sue, Buckfastleigh

This b and b is one of the best I have ever stayed in. Extremely comfortable bed with every touch of luxury there is possible provided. The owner is an outstanding cook and I had a beautiful supper with her both nights. Breakfast is first class. I enjoyed porridge, with fresh fruit, yogurt and delicious brown bread. Evenings were spent in my own lounge with log burner. Kate was excellent company, a really fabulous find.

Karen, Hereford

A very pleasant stay. Kate is friendly and interesting not talk too. Tea and cake on arrival and coffee in the evening. Extremely comfortable b&b and excellent countryside setting. Highly recommended.

Derek

The friendly welcome from both Kate and Molly (the resident dog) set the tone for a wonderfully relaxing few days. The accommodation is comfortable and characterful and Kate's meals are superbly cooked and presented. Our party used both bedrooms and enjoyed the use of the sitting room with its log fire and comfortable sofa and armchair - the perfect place to relax on a wet September day. We thoroughly recommend Mulsford Cottage.

My search was for a stop over between the Cairnryan Ferry from Ireland and the Eurotunnel Terminal - Mulsford is exactly half-way. Every word of the above description is exactly as it is, and more. On both occasions i have stayed Kate was out at the entrance to greet me - Couldn't get better than that
