The property

Macclesfield 3.4 miles.

4 Washpool Cottage is a delightful stone-fronted cottage built in the 1830s, that can be found sitting in the luscious green village of Rainow.

Within reaching distance of the bustling town of Macclesfield, this charming pet-friendly property provides the perfect setting for your next rural retreat, whether you’re a couple or a small family of four.

Open up the pretty cottage door and step into the well-thought country kitchen, home to a plethora of handy appliances all of which can be used to rustle up a delectable meal or tasty treats for a quiet night spent indoors.

Wander through to the warm embrace of the sitting room and feel the character of the exposed stone walls and original stone fireplace with striking multi-fuel stove, to keep you warm on those cold winter nights.

Cosy up on one the plush cream sofa settling down to watch an entertaining movie on the television or curl up on the attractive armchair to lose yourself in an enthralling tale from your favourite book.

Spend some time in the tranquillity of the conservatory where you can discuss important plans for your time in the area, before heading out into the well-kept garden and admiring the breath-taking views of the rolling countryside as you bask in the sunshine and dine alfresco with a picnic on the patio area.

Climb the beautiful oak staircase to the first floor and be greeted by the bright and airy space of the stylish bathroom; draw yourself a bath and while away the hour with some peace and quiet as you soak up the suds and recall your most memorable moments from the holiday so far.

Saunter through to your bedroom for the week, whether it be the spacious double bedroom with striking gold bed frame and delightful chest of drawers, or the snug double bedroom where you lay your head to rest at the end of an action-packed day of exploring.

When ready to get out and about in the local area, start your day with a visit to the Ingersley Vale Waterfall or a hike up Macc View for outstanding scenery.

History buffs will relish in a trip to the nearby town of Macclesfield where they can discover the rich and captivating history of Armoury Towers and Fence Alms Houses or the Priests House that rests in the quintessential village of Prestbury.

Hop in the car and head for Buxton where you can swing from treetops with a Go Ape experience or stroll the grounds of The Pavilion Gardens.

For a memorable holiday to the countryside, stay at 4 Washpool Cottage.
