  • “Chequer Stable was extremely comfortable, and had everything we wanted.”

    It was very clean and everything had been well thought out. When we arrived, we were delighted to find that the friendly owners had provided tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine.

    It was very clean and everything had been well thought out. When we arrived, we were delighted to find that the friendly owners had provided tea, coffee, milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine. The small patio area was a real suntrap, with a good view of the llamas, ducks and poultry. We loved it and would very happily stay there again.

The property

Sandbach 3 miles.

A superb, detached cottage, located on the owner's 2 acre smallholding, ideally located close to the popular market town of Sandbach.

Dating back to 1881, this delightful cottage has been sympathetically converted from an attractive Victorian stable building, with wooden windows and doors and homely modern styling, making it ideal as a romantic retreat.

This charming cottage, next to the owner's home, offers cosy, open plan accommodation with a galleried bedroom looking onto the sitting room and a ground floor modern and stylish bathroom.

The first floor bedroom feels open and airy with skylights, a round window and a stylish glass balustrade.

Entering into the open plan living area you will find a comfortable double sofa bed and tub chair set in front of the warming woodburning stove, with a flue stretching up past the mezzanine to the roof.

The kitchenette is practical and modern with soft close doors, offering the ideal area to prepare simple home-cooked meals, to be enjoyed at the dining table.

A full length glazed door leads off the sitting room onto a gravel patio seating area, with far-reaching views and overlooking the smallholding with llamas, ducks, chickens, geese and cockerels all roaming happily together.

Sandbach is a large historic market town dating back to Saxon times, with its famous Saxon Crosses still visible in the picturesque cobbled square where it still holds regular weekly markets, and a monthly farmers' market.

Sandbach offers an array of independent specialist and high street chain stores, interspersed with gastropubs, specialist food stores and real ale pubs.

Local parks include Congleton Park and Sandbach Park with bowling greens and outdoor gym, or nearby Brereton Heath Nature Reserve with its wildlife and woodland walks.

The cottage is an ideal base to access the towns of Congleton, Alsager, Middlewich and Holmes Chapel, where you can also take the train into Manchester.

Join the Dane Valley Way, South Cheshire Way or Cheshire Ring Canal Way for miles of beautiful cycle trails.

The nearby National Trust properties of Little Moreton Hall and Tatton Hall are well worth a visit as are The Potteries at Stoke-on-Trent.

This cosy cottage is an ideal, romantic getaway or perfect touring base, from which to relax and explore the delights of the surrounding area, and the Peak District is just a half hour drive away.
