  • “The Glass House was sited perfectly ...”
    The Glass House was sited perfectly in Bollington, with walking distance to a whole range of local eateries and walks, including the canal and White Nancy. Staying in Bollington was ideal to get to the Tatton Flower Show, Jodrell Bank, National Trust properties, Peak District walks and other Derbyshire towns. We fell in love with the upstairs living area of the property. No-one should be put off when it says The Glass House is in a car park; this wasn't a problem at all, as it wasn't busy or ...
    The Glass House was sited perfectly in Bollington, with walking distance to a whole range of local eateries and walks, including the canal and White Nancy. Staying in Bollington was ideal to get to the Tatton Flower Show, Jodrell Bank, National Trust properties, Peak District walks and other Derbyshire towns. We fell in love with the upstairs living area of the property. No-one should be put off when it says The Glass House is in a car park; this wasn't a problem at all, as it wasn't busy or noisy and is not noticeable when inside. Indeed, at night time the view of lights of pubs and buildings in the main street sparkling through the wonderful window by the kitchen table gave us a connectivity with the town.

The property

The Glass House is a superb designer conversion of a former stained glass workshop right in the heart of the thriving and bustling historic town of Bollington.

It’s ideal for up for four people who want the flexibility to explore the peaks but still be able enjoy local amenities from the doorstep.

The cottage is configured “upside down” to take full advantage of the building's striking features, namely, there’s a double and a zip/link twin which can also be a double on request on the ground floor, as well as a designer bathroom.

The first floor features a beautiful open plan living/dining/kitchen area with exposed roof beams and the stunning stained glass windows serve to remind you of the previous life of this historic building.

The décor is very tasteful indeed with a nod to 70s chic, in fact as collectors, the owners have included many genuine period pieces to complete the look beautifully.

Outside there’s a private sheltered courtyard for dining alfresco.

Whether your thing is real ale, wine, fine dining, ethnic cuisine or café culture, you are absolutely spoilt for choice with seven pubs and a plethora of eateries all a very short walk from the front door.

There are stunning hill and canal walks all around and of course you are a very short hop into the peaks.

City slickers and shopaholics can get their fix with a very short commute into busy Manchester.

A fantastic base for a great holiday all year round.

About the location

BOLLINGTON

Macclesfield 4 miles; Buxton 13 miles; Manchester 20 miles.

Where the Cheshire plains meet the peaks in the “Happy Valley” sits the delightful town of Bollington. With a rich heritage in the cotton spinning industry, there’s still plenty of surviving mills and a network of canals. Standing high above the town on Kerridge Hill is the landmark of “White Nancy” built in 1817 to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Waterloo. Today the town is a thriving community within the Manchester commuter belt resulting in a very bohemian atmosphere. Unlike most places, there are still plenty of busy pubs and a bounty of eateries, bars and cafés. It’s a very short hop to the bustling city of Manchester or the majesty and breathtaking beauty of the Peak District National Park.
