English Country Cottages

From a touch of luxury to characterful heritage, experience one of our truly inspiring holiday properties.


Gated, detached farmhouse, for larger groups of family and friends, with stabling available, woodland walks and fishing lake.

Tucked away behind electric gates in the beautiful Cheshire countryside, this substantial 18th-century detached farmhouse has been recently renovated and is very well equipped, yet still retains all its charm and character. The spacious, bright and inviting accommodation featuring exposed brick fireplaces, wooden beams, galleried landing and lead light windows, plus all the recreational facilities on offer, combine to make this an ideal holiday experience. The well laid out and mature gardens with a well stocked decorative pond provides a secluded, attractive and relaxing environment. Within the grounds is private stabling for up to three horses available for guests. A further part of the extensive grounds comprise 30 acres of farmland including 8 acres of woodland with forest trail which boasts livery stabling and its own fishing lake complete with cabin. On the woodland walk there are several summer houses conveniently placed where guests can rest and take in the sights and sounds of the abundant wildlife to be found all around. Many of the region’s country estates and historic houses such as Tatton Park, Arley Hall, Dunham House and Gawsworth Hall, to name but a few, are within easy reach and a golf course is on the doorstep. The historic village of Knutsford offers an abundance of top class restaurants and cafes together with its individual shopping facilities along its narrow streets. The Cheshire Smokehouse in Wilmslow is well worth a visit. The airport is 5½ miles, Manchester and the Trafford Centre, 8 miles, Old Trafford cricket ground, 15 miles. Chester and Liverpool are 28 miles and the Peak District, with its stunning scenery and many attractions is only 20 miles. Wales or The Lake District can be reached in 1-2 hours. Shops and pub 1½ miles.

    Very comfortable stay with very pleasant landlords who were easily contactable if there were any issues. We had plenty of fun in the games room and found the cottage to be very comfortable.

    We had a lovely weekend celebrating my mums 60th birthday with family. A lovely house with all the equipment we needed to cater for us all. We enjoyed using the hot tub and games room and had nice walks in the surrounding area. The key holder Heather was very helpful when we needed to arrange collecting the key and when the electric gate broke she was very quick to get it fixed. A lovely big house to get family together in a central location.

    We have young children (aged 5,3 and a baby) the cottage was an excellent choice for us. We received a very warm welcome on arrival, it was clean and warm and very welcoming. The games room was a fantastic space for the kids to let off steam and the house itself v well equipt and comfortable. We will definitely return.

    Great set up, thoroughly enjoyable. A few "buts" room roof leaks spoiling use of facilities and games room stove didn't seem to draw properly. Grill pan/rack ill fitting and no handle. Shortage of some kitchen saucepans etc. But hey what, what lovely rooms, bathrooms, hot tube etc. Yes we would go again.

    Absolutely fantastic. Very welcoming (hampers and towels etc). Hot tub was perfect (even in the cold winter!). Games room was brilliant, and location was 15mins from Manchester city centre. Had a great time, and the owner ensured we were okay. The guys had a great reunion here and we will be definitely re-booking in the near future. I just want to thank the owners for a lovely cottage.

    Lovely comfortable house - great accommodation. Attentive hosts/owners who resolved our minor issue with the heating (we couldn't find the controller!) within about 5 minutes. Lovely welcome basket of goodies. Would go back.

    We are three families with young children and had a great stay in Ivy House Farm. We found it clean, spacious, warm and well-equipped. The woodland nearby was perfect for short walks and it was lovely for the kids to be able to see horses in the fields and to pick blackberries. The photos don't do the house justice. Its décor won't be to everyone's taste, but it feels fresh and clean and was ideal for our family break.

    The property itself was lovely, very spacious and in a good location for visiting the surrounding attractions. We did, however, have a few issues during our stay. 1. The free view tv box in the sitting room was old, did not work and had exposed wires which could have electrocuted somebody. We replaced it and were told by the owner they would repay us but this has not happened. 2. The fifth bedroom had two very small beds (probably only suitable for under 10s), it had no storage facility, very poor mattresses and duvets which were grubby. 3. The general cleanliness was sub-standard (stains on cushions and floors, finger prints on tv and windows, fridge not clean etc). 4. About 30% of the light bulbs either did not work or were missing. Money should be reinvested to bring the property up to the level expected for the star rating it has and the amount charged to stay in it. It needs a thorough clean.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Thank you for your feedback and glad you found the property spacious and in a good location. Sorry to hear you had a few issues during your stay with the Freeview box, this has been rectified and we want to thank you in helping resolve this. With regard to the beds in the 5th bedroom, these are standard single beds, with sprung mattresses which are only just over 12 months old. We were shocked to hear the duvets were grubby as we change our bedding every change over and this is sent to laundry each time. With regards to cleanliness, we take great pride in making sure our property is of a high standard and we have a caretaker who cleans our property. We would have addressed these issues if we were contacted by sending the cleaner back to do a re-clean. On checking the light bulbs, we have found 2 not working and apologise for this, they have now been replaced.

    The property was spacious allowing all to gather together or each to find their own space. The facilities were as described and perfectly adequate for our stay. The house and garden were clean and tidy but the decor was tired and generally the appearance was of a house that needs some TLC. This was of little concern to us and did not affect the quality of our holiday.
