Chris Jenny Inglenook CottageHello from Chris and Jenny

Some background information about us.

Most guests think it fortuitous that we live next door to inglenook cottage, so any information or requirements you may have are easily sorted and we are usually there to welcome you.

Jenny is originally from Suffolk, she did a chemistry degree “up North” and has stayed here. She has lived in Ashton since 2000.

Chris was born in Chester and is an engineer and an expert at DIY (very handy when things need fixing), he has lived in Ashton for 50 years! And lived at The Hollies next door to Inglenook for just over 30 years, so between them they know the area very well.

We purchased Inglenook cottage (it was known as Norwood) in 2003, it looked nothing like the cottage you see today. All the cottage features were hidden under plywood, layers of plaster, cement and woodchip wallpaper. It took us 2 years to renovate doing almost all the work ourselves.

Originally the cottage had 2 bedrooms, very popular with our guests and ideal for couples or families. In 2016 we were asked by the neighbours if we would be willing to extend the rear of the cottage together to create an extra bedroom upstairs (plus ensuite in our case) and larger kitchen dining room downstairs. This was completed in October 2016 and we think it has been a great success, combined with bifold doors onto a new patio area, make a very comfortable base to return to, after a day out exploring the many attractions of the North West.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage furnished to a very high standard with a lovely wood-burner for cold nights. Highly recommend for couples and families with its huge garden and close to Chester to explore.We Would definitely stay again.
