This delightful cottage is nestled on the outskirts of the picturesque Peak District National Park.
Nestled in a picturesque location, this character terraced cottage, built around 1820, makes for a perfect romantic rural retreat. The peaceful multi-tiered garden holds an elevated position above the River Bollin, and the cosy living room, with its oak floor and exposed beams, is home to a wood burning stove. A freestanding roll-top bath takes pride of place in the bathroom. The stunning countryside surroundings of Tegg’s Nose, Langley Reservoirs, and Macclesfield Forest, not to mention a selection of cosy country pubs are all within easy walking distance.
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 walking available in Macclesfield Forest, up the peak of Shutlingsloe and across to Tegg’s Nose Country Park. A convenient place to stay and 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 are all easily accessible, as is the Peak District National Park.
The owners of Hall Yard Cottage live a stones throw away where they have sympathetically converted an old silk mill and its buildings which have 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, and the unique ’Silk Gardens’ - seven indoor themed gardens which evoke the silk route from China can be viewed by prior arrangement with the owner. Visitors can also enjoy private fishing and the farm animals on-site such as miniature horses, sheep and chickens. Shop 1½ miles, pub 350 yards, restaurant ¾ mile.
Hall Yard Cottage can be booked together with River Cottage (CC412103) and Dye House (CC412109), both 25 yards away, to accommodate up to 12 guests.
