    “Basic, but great pod with everything you need for a short peaceful break, and the hot-tub was a fab inclusion.”

    Exellent location with great views in almost every direction, and the site has a really nice mowed walking area around the working farm with alpacas, goats, chicken, etc. The site is kept painstakingly clean and tidy by Nick the friendly site manager, and he works painstakingly to keep all the lawn areas mowed to perfection which keeps the site looking spot-on at all times.

The property

Holmes Chapel 4.4 miles.

Situated on Welltrough Hall Farm, overlooking a 270-acre working farmland with superb views across the Cheshire countryside, is Badger Pod.

This charming shepherd's hut, near the village of Holmes Chapel, offers cosy accommodation for a couple looking to explore an interesting region of Cheshire.

Enveloped by the peace and quiet of the area, you can kick back, relax and truly make the most of this romantic getaway.

You have a double sofa bed and TV, as well as a handy kitchenette to store the essentials and make a lovely cup of tea for your other half to enjoy fresh on the decking on a crisp morning.

There is also an en-suite shower room conveniently waking you up each morning.

On a balmy afternoon, sit out on the decking and soak up the greenery in the hot tub, with nothing to disturb you other that the sounds of birds in the trees.

You also have a gas stove for alfresco dining and later you can stroll across the fields to the village pub for a refreshing drink.

Your four-legged friends haven't been forgotten either, there is a three-kilometre grass track around the farm, a public footpath and plenty of other walking trails, along with a warm doggy shower to wash muddy paws on the return journey.

This central position in Cheshire means you are within easy reach of the cities of Chester, Manchester and Liverpool, hosting an array of attractions and activities for all tastes.

Nearby however, you have the Arley Hall Estate for pleasant walks around flourishing gardens, magnificent rooms to explore inside and a history to uncover.

You can also pay a visit to Tatton Park, the lovely market town of Knutsford and on the doorstep is the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre and observatory.

Thrill-seekers can also enjoy a day at Alton Towers or the Oulton Park motor racing circuit, both easily reached by car.

Bring your loved one to share a memorable holiday in this countryside getaway.
