Family friendly activities in Cheshire this winter…

This winter spend some quality time with the family in our beautiful self-catering holiday cottages. Our family friendly cottages offer idyllic settings, home from home comforts and cosy living areas ideal for long evenings by the fires playing board games. 

As well as cosying up by the fire why not brave the chill and explore the surrounding areas throughout Cheshire offering some of the most magical and exciting Christmas activities for all the family. 

Our top suggestions for a picture-perfect family staycation;
