The Rayner family purchased Hill House Farm in the 1940s, running it as a dairy farm until the late 1980s, when the dairy was sold off but the main farmhouse and brick barns were retained. We ran a B&B for 17 years before concentrating on self-catering holidays. We currently have a small livery yard of around 10 horses which we run alongside our Agricultural and Amenity Contracting Business.
I grew up in West Sussex and moved to Cheshire in the late 1990s when I met and married Nick, who was actually born in the farmhouse! I studied horses at college and ran my own riding school and livery yard before I moved to Cheshire. I now only ride for pleasure and to escort our daughter.
The Chirk Cottage is the original old Cheese Room for the farmhouse which has been luxuriously converted into a self-contained cottage sleeping two.
The Cottage is centrally heated by a Biomass Boiler, and has an easy-to-use log burner for cosy winter evenings. All you have to do is throw the occasional log or two onto it.
The original staircase leads to the first floor bedroom, which has a 6ft ‘Zip & Link’ bed – which can be made up as a double or twin bed. The bedroom is furnished in antique pine throughout, and has wonderful views of the rolling Cheshire countryside.
Chirk Cottage is semi-detached to the main farmhouse and has its own entrance, which leads through the yard to the car parking area at the front of the farmhouse.
THE COUNTRY LODGE
The Country Lodge is a luxurious three bedroomed single story wooden lodge. The Country Lodge benefits from a stunning open plan living area with a mezzanine landing above.
Equipped with a large ‘Clearview’ log burner to keep you cosy and a ‘Smart’ 3D television and DVD player to keep you entertained while you stay.
All the bedrooms have en suite facilities, the master bedroom has a large walk in shower, one of the smaller bedrooms has a smaller walk in shower and the third bedroom has a bath with a shower above it.
The superior beds are all ‘zip and link’ so can be arranged as either a super king double or two single twin beds.
