  • "This property was immaculately clean with lovely views of the grounds of Capesthorne Hall from all the windows."

    It is ideal for 2 couples staying as the two bedrooms are on different floors and both have their own bathroom. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped, only missing a washing machine, although we would have appreciated better quality pans. There was a small welcome pack of coffee and tea, biscuits, water and a bottle of prosecco. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets were also provided. The location was very peaceful as the grounds are only open to the public 2 afternoons a week, we enjoyed lovely quiet walks and runs through the grounds, around the lake and through the woods. The Hall itself is well worth a visit on the afternoons that it is open to the public. We had a very enjoyable week here and can absolutely recommend.

    Thank you. We appreciate your feedback and are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Property Owner

  • "What a wonderful location, for us."

    You do have to travel to do anything; but as this location was close to family, it was awesome. Plenty of living space for a 2 bed facility Lots of outside space for the children to roam, safely and explore. Would have no problems in highly recommending this accommodation.

  • "Probably the fridge should have a freezer compartment."

    Also warn older clients that the stairs are quite steep.

    Dear Shirley, thank you for your feedback. We have now purchased a small worktop freezer for South Tower cottage and will ask Sykes to amend the description to mention the steep stairs. I do hope you get the chance to stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "After a terrible trip with motorway delays it was great to finally arrive at South Tower to such lovely accommodation."

    All info emailed in advance re how to get into the Hall grounds. Lovely dining room and lounge, kitchen has everything you need with views over the grass towards the lake. Lovely small private garden. Great bedrooms and bathrooms. I would say there’s alot of stairs in the property in case people struggle or have small children. My parents stayed at the lakeside cottage, smaller living space , no views and next to the bigger property for 12 so not ideal if that’s booked as likely to be noisy. Nice to mooch around the grounds and woodland area too. They were filming an advert in the grounds during our stay.m for one day. We were given prior notice and left some Prosecco on our doorstep as it over ran. Nice touch. South tower was a great base for us and we would stay there again.

  • "We had an absolutely fabulous stay at the cottage in the grounds of Capesthorne Hall."

    This was where we married in 2006 and we loved going back to visit. Great location, short drive from nearest town and the grounds are beautiful, perfect for kids to run around or romantic walks in the woods and around the lake. The cottage has everything you need, very well equipped kitchen and generally throughout. The decor is lovely, clearly a lot of thought went into the design of each room and it is stylish but very comfortable also. Staff are very helpful and friendly. The cottage was spotless and everything was super clean, clearly important at the present time. We will definitely be going back to stay here!

Walking through the signposted gate and past your private garden, enter into the hallway and choose to take a seat in the sitting room where you can unwind on the sofa or one of the snug tub chairs beneath the character high ceilings, whilst the television provides entertainment for your evening.

The kitchen is a contemporary area hosting a wide selection of amenities to assist you in your home-cooking when you're not exploring the delicious eateries of Alderley Edge or Macclesfield.

Or why not head to the town of Macclesfield for the day, enjoy the bustling town centre and treat yourself to some shopping or catch a film at the cinema on a rainy day.
