Barnacre Holiday Cottages, Saughall Massie, Wirral, Cheshire (Sleeps 1-8)

Barnacre Cottages are three beautifully appointed holiday homes, nestled in a lovely part of Cheshire in the historic village of Saughall Massie. The village dates to the 1300s and is a great base for those who want a relaxing break. All three cottages have their own private hot tub/jacuzzi, plus the shared use of the heated indoor pool and the one-acre Barnacre fishing lake.

Much care and attention has been put into every holiday home, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable stay is had by all. Two of the cottages, The Old Mill Barn and The Shippon occupy a 250-year-old barn conversion, while the third, Barnacre Green, is a recent, green oak frame cottage which has a zero environmental impact.

The Shippon Barn has been designed especially with children in mind. It has three bedrooms – one single and two double – sleeping 5-7 people. Many of the original features of the ancient barn have been preserved; much timbering is exposed and the owl flight holes and archers' windows are preserved and snugly glazed, giving the bedrooms a unique charm. The atmosphere is completed with flagstone flooring and a woodburning stove downstairs and oak floors upstairs.

The Old Mill Barn is set on a charming small courtyard and with a private garden, the Old Mill’s oak and granite kitchen/dining room is awash with blue-and-white china and high-quality equipment, fittings and furnishings. It exudes a comforting sense of peace which springs from the barn’s long history and sensitive conversion. The exposed beams, original brickwork and sandstone floors of the old mill are made snug with underfloor heating, thick carpeting and tasteful furnishings.

The Green Cottage is a secluded and private cottage that is 400 metres beyond the other holiday homes. All on one level, it can sleep 6-8 in two family bedrooms (each with a double and single bed) plus the sofa bed in the living area. All the materials in the construction and fitting were selected for their low environmental and carbon impact, and Barnacre Green cottage is self-sufficient for all energy, water and wastewater.

Saughall Massie is ideally located for exploring this lovely part of Cheshire. Within comfortable driving distance, you can reach an array of attractions and places of interest.

Wirral is packed with things to do; vibrant Liverpool and historic Chester are minutes away and Manchester, Snowdonia, the Peak District and the Lake District are all within easy reach for days out. Whether you are looking for a slow-paced weekend break or a fantastic base for a full-on family holiday, staying in one of the Barnacre Cottages is the perfect choice.
