About this property

Elegant and inviting dog-friendly Empress Cottage is set within the Combermere Abbey Estate, one of Cheshire’s most historic gems, on the border of Shropshire and Cheshire. Surrounded by 1000 acres of stunning ancient parkland and woods, there is much to explore with your furry friend! With 900 years of history, the characterful buildings and landscape both inspire and captivate guests. This romantic two-bedroom cottage was named for and inspired by Elizabeth the Empress of Austria. A keen horsewoman, she rented Combermere for three years to hunt with the Wynnstay Hunt at the end of the 19th century and had to be sewn into her riding habit daily. The cottage was created from three loose-boxes and a stable, and some of the original dividers have been reused in the sitting room. Ideal for a small family, the cottage features traditional decor, gorgeous furnishings and a cosy wood-burning stove for Fido to snooze beside. The Pleasure Gardens make a lovely uplifting space to wander through, and the trail through the Garden Wood leads to gorgeous countryside views. With so many beautiful walks from your doorstep, Empress Cottage will be a favourite with your canine companion. 

Dine with Your Dog

Empress Cottage features area set for 4 and a fully integrated kitchen for home-cooking. If you fancy venturing out for food, Alderford Lake and Cafe makes a lovely spot for some tea and cake with your four-legged friend. Combermere Arms also allow well behaved pooches in the bar area.

Bow wow factor

Four-legged friends are free to stretch their legs around the stunning Pleasure Gardens and the Garden Wood. Plus, your pet will receive a welcome pack on arrival!
