We were charged for accommodation in self-catering Knowsley cottage. Although we accepted the cottage attached to the house after we were informed that the Knowsley cottage was booked for the night, our accommodation was below average. No wash basin for dishes, no spoons, no dishclothes, etc. We feel that we should have been charged less for this accommodation. We never saw the actual Knowsley Cottage!

We had a wonderful, restful stay at the well-appointed Knowsley Country Cottage. It is very peaceful, and we enjoyed the garden and the walks on the farm.

We had a fabulous time at Knowsley over the Easter Weekend. The cottage is spacious and comfy. We lit up the fire in the fire-place every night which made it warm and cosy inside. We were even allowed to bring my sister's dog with - and Casey enjoyed the open space outside. We did the green and red trail on bike - loved the scenery and the peaceful tranquillity of the 'platteland'.
