Set high above the bustling market town of Macclesfield, the location of Eddisbury Hall Cottage is impressive from the moment you arrive. Boasting superb far reaching views across Macclesfield and the Cheshire Plains, the quaint stone built, detached cottage is located next to Eddisbury Hall and comes with shared use of the owner’s fabulous grounds, which are home to two fire pits.
Macclesfield itself lies just below the western edge of the Peak District National Park. A prosperous town, its cobbled streets are well-equipped with excellent local shops, high street names, art galleries and there is an eagerly awaited monthly market. Macclesfield Forest is also around 10 minutes’ from the property and somewhere that you can enjoy outdoor activities, such as horse riding, walking, cycling and fishing.
Away from the town, Macclesfield is surrounded by spectacular countryside and within minutes you can reach the Peak District National Park.
