Why not come and relax in our cosy hobbit retreat. Totally private and in your own exclusive area, tucked away in a corner of the glorious Cheshire countryside, a perfect snug for a romantic getaway.
The snug is on the Cheshire/Shropshire/Staffordshire border with many places to visit in the immediate vicinity, Plus many great pubs serving excellent food and ale, and local pretty walks.
The snug is situated on its own in our top paddock ensuring total exclusivity to ensure maximum tranquillity

The space
If you're looking for magical adventure and would like to step out of reality and rest a while then look no further! The Hobbitesque Snug is a quirky and unique experience, something a little different, and very romantic with its cosy wooden structure which smells of pine and has cute Hobbit like round windows and door.
It is situated completely in its own private grounds, situated in our top paddock, 100 yards from our house. The whole top paddock is exclusively yours, quite a rare find!
At night time you can hear owls hooting, foxes barking and see the bat's flitting about catching their dinner. It’s a special place to be close to nature.
It is a unique stay whether in the glorious sunshine, the driving wind and rain or the most cozy is the cold frosty wintertime.
The snug has 2 rooms, 1 lounge area which has a small and very comfortable recliner sofa and 1 bedroom which has a small double bed - the bedroom is separated by a round hole which you climb through and has curtains for privacy. Please see photos.
There is a separate converted rustic hut outside the snug that has the toilet/shower and sink. (see photos)
We have the facilities to sleep 3 people, ideally made for a couple and child (a John Lewis foam free smart mattress single fold out bed in the lounge and a small double bed in the bedroom)
We believe in taking away all the modern stresses in todays lifestyle so do not provide Wifi, though there is a TV (fluctuating signal!) and DVD player should you wish to watch it, or maybe relax over a glass of wine and watch a roaring log fire whilst toasting marshmallows... there is a barbeque for you to use and a local butcher at Bridgemere Gardens Centre which you can walk to via the country lanes (just a mile away) who can supply organic meat of superb quality. There is also a delicatesan and a huge fruit and veg stall. The snug is equipped with a fridge, microwave, kettle, and a toaster. During the Summer months ( April-September) there is an undercover gazebo and we provide a small basic camping oven, a 2 ring hotplate and an electric teppanyaki grill to cook your eggs and bacon, or other delights on for alfresco dining.. If you prefer to eat out then we have some fabulous country pubs around us who also provide take aways.
We provide a bag of logs for outdoor log fires and marshmallows for toasting upon request (£10) Tea, coffee and biscuits are complimentary, and semi-skimmed milk will be in your fridge. Please just ask if you prefer a milk alternative.
Please also let us know if you would like to purchase barbeque coals (£5)

Because of the quirky nature of the cozy cabin retreat, there are steps and round doors to climb through in to the snug and therefore unsuitable for anybody with mobility issues.

To enjoy the local attractions and make the most of your visit, plus be able to get food shopping, we would like to stress that you will need a car as we are in the middle of nowhere :)
The nearest pub is 2 miles away, and the nearest village is a 5 minute drive or you can walk there via footpaths.. There are many lovely walks in the local area and we are only a short drive away from the famous Sandstone Trail if you like long walks in the countryside. There are local maps included in the information folder inside the Snug.
There are many great things to do for little ones such as BeWILDerwood which is an amazing adventure park about 25 minutes drive from us - leaflets are in the Hobbit home to tell you all about it. 😁

For Winter stays (October - April) please note that due to ground conditions it may not be possible to drive up to the Hobbit house, we have a private yard outside our house where you can park your car and walk up to the retreat, please bring your wellies and waterproof jacket incase it’s rainy :-)

No dogs please.

The Hobbit Quotes:

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole, and that means comfort."

~J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit, or There and Back Again
