BI-ANNUAL PRIZE DRAW

This year has seen the start an exciting new offer which we hope you will all enjoy.:

When you register on arrival, your name and email address will be entered into a twice yearly draw with the prize of a free one night mid-week stay at Cotton Farm.  You could either use this for yourself to have another little bit of time away, add it on to a stay that you are already planning to book or alternatively give it to someone as a present. Of course if you would rather not been put in the draw there is an easy opt out box to tick.

We draw a name at random at the end of June and again at the beginning of January.

The lucky winners this June were a couple from near Birmingham.

Easter 2013

After the worst March since 1962 we are all glad that the hard work of lambing is over and that the first daffodils are beginning to emerge. 

The promise of Spring's arrival and a table full of Easter eggs today has put a smile on all our faces! This is what you missed for our Easter breakfast this morning. Greedily we are all looking forward to the homemade hot cross buns that my daughter and I had fun making yesterday.

Don't forget that Easter heralds the opening of most National Trust properties. Check out the National Trust's website for more details http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/ and book now to come and stay with us.

Chester Food festival

Visitors to The Chester Food Festival (29th-30th September 2012) will not be disappointed by our breakie at Cotton Farm…

As foodies and farmers, we have sourced local or home grown produce where we can. Our Sausages and bacon are from the local family run Rose Farm Shop whilst our organic tomatoes and free-range eggs are home grown (when in season of course).

The flour for our bread is milled at Walk Mill - the beautifully restored water mill across the fields from Cotton Farm. All the bread is freshly made at Cotton Farm by Clare, who trained at Prue Leith’s cookery school.

When the orchards and veggie patch are ripe for the picking, you’ll find rhubarb, plums, strawberries and warming spiced apple porridge on the table, too.

Our haloes are shining at Cotton Farm as we do ‘our bit’ for the local community and minimise our carbon footprint, whilst producing a scrumptious breakfast for our guests.

February 2011

The days are slowly getting longer and warmer and new arrivals at Cotton Farm are putting smiles on everyone’s faces. The first snowdrops are peeping through the grass in great carpets of delicate white, bringing a splash of colour to the previously drab winter garden and even the daffodils are showing signs of life. However, the most exciting new arrivals, without a doubt, are the lambs.  Watching them bounce around the fields makes the bleak cold winter feel miles away.  Here are a couple of photos of our favourite additions to farm life…

Don’t forget that to take advantage of our Springtime Offer; three nights for the price of two, your arrival must be on either a Sunday, Monday or Tuesday. But hurry as this fantastic offer ends on 12th April 2011.

To make your stay at Cotton Farm more comfortable and relaxing we now provide our guests with luxury bath robes and a decanter of sherry in the bedrooms. Our homemade marmalade has just been potted up and it tastes delicious with our freshly made Cotton Farm bread, baked with flour grown and milled from the adjacent farm.  If this isn’t enough we now accept credit cards and, within the next week, we will be offering a facility for online bookings to make life easier and more efficient.
