    “The house was great and the welcome package lovely and we all loved the hot tub.”


    The only problem we had was with the out dated directions. Every single group that drove to the property got lost. And it really stressed us out especially with kids and dogs in the car late at night. Some people where driving around for more than an hour. The directions are fine right up to the last little bit where the directions talk about finding a white gate with the name of the house on it. Well there are 3 white gates around crag hall and not one of them is the front entrance to the house. Plus the 'bothy' sign isn't visible because it's on the open brown gate which is pushed back out of the way. My two suggestions would be to maybe get the house name/sign put out on the side of the road where you can see it and please please, take of the bit about the white gate from your directions or paint the gate white. Apart from that we had a great holiday. Thanks

About the location


Buxton 7 miles; Macclesfield 7 miles.

Claiming to be where the last wild boar in England was hunted, Wildboarclough is a sleepy little village rich in history and characteristic builds. Set on the western edges of the Peak District National Park, equidistant between Macclesfield and the spa town of Buxton, this is an idyllic spot from which to discover the many delightful towns and villages of the area. There are some wonderful walks surrounding the village and for those seeking a challenge, make sure to climb Shuttlingsloe, the ‘Matterhorn of Cheshire’, which rises steeply to the western outskirts of Wildboarclough. The little ones will love a visit to Blaze Farm, where they can meet the animals and enjoy the natural trails, whilst everyone will relish a homemade ice cream on the farm before heading home! The Ship Inn, the second highest pub in the UK, is just three miles to the north, providing the perfect spot for a pint of local ale and a bite to eat after a bracing walk. Spend the day in the beautiful town of Buxton, just a short drive away, with its seasonal festivals and events, grand structures, pretty gardens, theatres, shops and range of restaurants. A short drive to Macclesfield in the opposite direction offers the opportunity to discover the history, mills and museums of this former silk manufacturing town. The whole of the Peak District National Park is at your fingertips from this lovely location.
