Bijou bolt-hole for two in sleepy Cheshire countryside

The sleepy Cheshire countryside south of Manchester and Merseyside is a sort of secret escape between the Peak District and North Wales – not so secret among the well-heeled footballers that buy country mansions here, but an in-the-know destination for anyone seeking a bit of rural peace and quiet while being a short drive from posh little market towns and national park landscapes. If that sounds like you, then the Hayloft is a perfect little base, a charming redbrick conversion that's in the grounds of a country property but also nice and private with fields all around. Knutsford is just five miles away – a typically monied Cheshire town of interior design shops, antique centres and delis – while the classy spa town of Buxton, deep in the Peak District, is close enough for lunch and a mooch around.

Where they used to pack hay is now a cosy space for a couple, done out in an attractive, contemporary country style of exposed brick and floorboards under solid timber beams. There's a mezzanine level above that maintains the height and light, but all the living space is downstairs on one level. A tiled shower-room and double bedroom lies on one side, open-plan kitchen-diner and lounge on the other, and while the bedroom is compact, there's plenty of leisure space beyond. There's a twin sofa and bucket chair in the lounge, a little dining area under the beams, and a decent-sized country kitchen with everything you need for cooking cosy meals.

Patio doors from the lounge lead out on to a private outdoor space with garden furniture and field views. There's bike storage – and some nice, flat rides hereabouts – and because this is Cheshire, not only can you bring your dog (there are outside kennels) but also your horse, if you tell them in advance. The village pub is a mile away, the nearest shop a couple of miles, though if you're not stocking up in local organic farm shops and artisan delis, you're not doing Cheshire right.



Upon entering this charming property, you will find to the right, a metro-tiled, contemporary walk-through shower room that leads onto the cosy double bedroom, decorated in soft dusky pink tones.

Back in the main living area, you have an open plan kitchen/diner and lounge, with a quirky mezzanine level above, with limited head height, suitable for adults only -care should be taken on the ladder!

The kitchen provides plenty of space for preparing a meal and includes a large SMEG fridge, integrated electric cooker & hob, kettle and toaster; with views onto the patio and fields beyond.

Patio doors, lead off the lounge area onto your own low walled, paved patio area; complete with lighting, BBQ and garden furniture for alfresco dining-the perfect spot to take in the views of the surrounding fields.

Adjacent to the property, guests will find parking, bike storage, electric car charging, enclosed dog kennel and stables-all available via prior arrangement.

The Hayloft is situated on the grounds of another residence, where your warm and welcoming host resides.


The Hayloft is located five miles from the vibrant market town of Knutsford and just two miles from Holmes Chapel. The property is suitable for business travellers, located 5 miles from Alderley Park business park, and welcome hampers can be arranged in advance of your stay with essentials. Please also note this property is located on a quiet, country lane and accessed via a secure, gated entrance. 


Available all year.
