Good Hotel Guide Review
On the edge of a village in the centre of the Wirral peninsula, Lorna Tyson and her husband, Donald (a farmer), have transformed an Edwardian country house into a relaxed B&B (‘no notices/rules anywhere!’) and small events venue. Built by a Liverpool brewer in the late 19th century, the house stands in mature grounds with a sunken dell, a large pond, and paddocks where calves graze. Beyond, woodland stretches down to the Mere Brook. Choose between individually decorated bedrooms spread between the original building and a converted coach house across the patio: most have views over the gardens or fields; one has its own patio; another a large private balcony. Each building has its own lounge; guests also have the use of a kitchen to store food and prepare meals. Feeling peckish? Help yourself to complimentary home-made cakes, cheese, fruit juice, tea and coffee whenever the desire strikes. Breakfast is served in the conservatory overlooking the pond, using super-local ingredients: honey from the garden beehives; milk from the Tysons’ dairy cows; home-produced apple juice using fruit from the orchard. 3 lounges, conservatory, dining room. Guest kitchens. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). Wedding/function facilities. 1-acre garden (benches, gazebo) in 4-acre grounds (pond, paddocks). Children welcomed (extra beds). Within 20 mins’ drive of Liverpool and Chester. 8 bedrooms (4 in coach house; 3 on ground floor, 1 suitable for disabled). Per room B&B £75–£130.
