Macclesfield

Macclesfield lies nestled on the edge of the Peak District. This ancient market town is in close proximity to beautiful countryside ensuring visitors can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities.

The area has a lot to offer holidaymakers of all ages, from both an historical perspective and an outdoors one. From the minute you step outside your cottage door you’ll have access to a variety of activities and attractions close by.

For those interested in the history of this prosperous town, a visit to the Macclesfield Silk Museum, Paradise Mill and the Heritage Centre offers an impressive overview of the silk trade that has contributed to the area''s growth and wealth since the early 1800s.

The English gothic-style church of St Michaels and the Georgian style Christ Church are both worth admiring and Capesthorne Hall and Adlington Hall are two of the most stunning Grade II listed country houses in the region, both very deserving of a visit.

If you enjoy outdoor activities, you will be spoilt for choice in Macclesfield. Its close proximity to the countryside allows easy access to walking trails over the Cheshire Plains and the paths through the Macclesfield Forrest, Alderley Edge and the Gritstone trails also boast breathtakingly scenery.

There are plenty of picturesque fishing spots in Macclesfield and canal boats are available for hire for those who wish to explore the waterways. A visit to Macclesfield Riverside Park is a must and will be enjoyed by all.

Discover this Cheshire town for yourself; search for cottages in Macclesfield and enjoy a perfectly picturesque countryside holiday.

    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 enjoyments including a wood burner, the result is truly spectacular and unique.

    Other buildings at the silk mill have been sympathetically converted in the last ten years and featured in interior design magazines. Michael Portillo visited during the filming of his Great British Railway Journeys where he follows routes up and down the country originally suggested in an edition of George Bradshaw’s guide. The unique ’Silk Gardens’ - seven indoor themed gardens which evoke the silk route from China - can be viewed by arrangement with the owner. Visitors can also enjoy private fishing and the farm animals such as miniature horses, sheep and chickens.

    Langley is a quiet village close to Macclesfield, with picturesque rows of mill worker’s cottages surrounded by spectacular countryside. Several small reservoirs, attractive woodland and ancient packhorse routes characterise the area, with good walks in Macclesfield Forest, up the peak of Shuttlingsloe and across to Tegg’s Nose Country Park. This is also a convenient place to stay to explore the attractions of the north west - Jodrell Bank Observatory, the vibrant cities of Manchester, Chester and Liverpool and historic houses such as Gawsworth Hall (with its summer open air theatre), Little Moreton Hall and Styal Mill.

    Dye House can be booked together with River Cottage (CC412103) to accommodate up to 8 guests.
