This stunning conversion of a former dye house exudes character, personality, heritage and history. With its beamed, vaulted ceiling and original stone flagged flooring, the open plan living arrangement is both impressive and spacious. Industrial in design to reflect its former use, and combined with modern day luxuries including a wood burner, the result is truly spectacular and unique.
As part of the former Langley Silk Mill, the site on which the property is located is also home to the fantastic Silk Gardens, seven indoor themed gardens, which are supported by the Rural Development Programme, exploring the journey of silk starting from Xian in China. Included within these is a Mongolian Yurt, full size Terracotta Warriors and a Persian garden, all of which can be viewed by prior arrangement with the owner, as can the farm animals such as miniature horses, sheep and chickens. Guests can also take advantage of coarse fishing on site and private use of an indoor hot tub, both of which are available at an additional fee.
Langley itself is a beautiful rural village bordering Macclesfield Forest on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Popular with outdoor enthusiasts, its surrounded by spectacular countryside and is famed as the birthplace of renowned wildlife painter Charles Tunnicliffe. An ideal location for exploring not only all that the Peak District has to offer, but also the attractions of the north west including Jodrell Bank, the vibrant cities of Manchester, Chester and Liverpool and historic houses such as Gawsworth and Little Moreton Hall.Dye House (CC412109) can be booked with River Cottage (CC412103) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
