about elm cottage
James and Jackie bought Elm Cottage in August 2015, moving the family from Berkshire. James was in the corporate IT world, commuting to London most days, whilst Jackie was combining teaching with raising 2 daughters.
What a 'lifestyle change' it was! From the early days where we worked 7 days a week, to recruiting dedicated wardens who allowed us to share the work-load.
We hope we have created a relaxed, family & dog friendly site where you can really enjoy your holiday.
Since owning Elm Cottage, we have built 20 large, fully serviced pitches for our 'Seasonal family'.
We built the pizza oven in 2016 and it's been a great success! It is open most Fridays during July & August and all Fridays on Bank Holiday weekends. Staffed mostly by James, Jackie, their daughter Katie & our friendly long-termer, Ian. Bring along a drink & watch your pizzas being freshly made to order.
In October 2018, after listening to your reviews, we commissioned Creative Play to design & build a new children's park. We are delighted with the result & hope your children enjoy it.
A dog friendly park, Elm Cottage welcomes well behaved dogs and their owners! We have a large dedicated dog walking area within our grounds where you can let your dogs off the lead. Much enjoyed by our own fluffy family muts, Holly & Izzy!
James & Jackie
Under new management for over three years Elm Cottage is not just a business but a family home for a couple that traded in their suburban home in Berkshire for a new life in the heart of the Cheshire countryside. A true family business, Elm Cottage is not simply a heaven for James, Jackie and the children but also a home away from home for all our visitors.
