Settled on the outskirts of the quaint village of Adlington, a stone's throw away from the historic town of Bollington, rests this delightful mid-terrace holiday home, Fox Bank Cottage.

About the location


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.
