Our traditional working sheep farm is situated at 1200 ft above sea level, on the quiet, unspoiled western side of the Peak District National Park in Rainow, near Macclesfield, Cheshire. We enjoy excellent open countryside with far-reaching views over the Cheshire Plain to the Welsh mountains.

We are ideally located for exploring the magnificent scenery of the Peak District and Cheshire, with many footpaths straight from the door, from quiet rambles to tough hill walking on rugged moors.

We have two adjoining holiday cottages, Croft Cottage which sleeps 6, and Meadow Cottage which sleeps 4. Both cottages can be booked together and they can be opened up to sleep a group of 10.

Holiday Cottages

Both cottages were previously used as haylofts for our working farm, but have since been renovated to a very high standard as self catering holiday cottages. The spacious interior retains many of its original features including oak beams and exposed stone work giving the place warmth and character.

The cottages also benefit from modern luxuries such as free Wi-Fi throughout and cosy under floor heating. The cottages have been turned upside down to take advantage of the properties character and views of the surrounding Peak District countryside - which can be best appreciated from the first floor living area, hence the unusual layout.

Both cottages have a lounge with a large colour TV, free-view channels, DVD player and a play station. There is also an integral kitchen/dining room with a microwave, oven, hobs, kettle and come fully stocked with pots, pans, cutlery and some essentials for when you first arrive like tea bags, coffee and sugar.

Both cottages have a bathroom with a power shower. There is oil central heating and under floor heating throughout both cottages with all fuel and power included in the price of the cottage. All bed linen and towels are also included in the price of the cottage.

Both cottages have their own separate patio area with garden furniture and plenty of off-road parking.

Cots, highchairs and stair gates are available upon request.

Sorry, no pets and no smoking please.
