    “Very nice little cottage with great views.”

    Had an issue with the wood burning stove, the owners did all they reasonably could to fix it and were very apologetic. My only issue with the cottage would be with on street parking which was indicated in the Cottage description. Where they wanted me to park was on the verge at the start of an S bend on a narrow, fast, fairly busy country road. I think this is dangerous. The owners parked there too and even had a red flashing light in their back window as a warning, so I'm pretty sure they know ...

The owners parked there too and even had a red flashing light in their back window as a warning, so I'm pretty sure they know it is dangerous too even though they said it had never caused an accident. The trouble is that there isn't any real alternative; I parked in the local pub car park for a couple of nights but there is nothing else in the immediate vicinity

    "We are pleased to hear that you both enjoyed No 4 and the views and gave the cottage a score of 100% in this regard. We were sorry to hear that you remained uneasy about parking your car alongside the verge for the remainder of your stay. On road parking is commonplace in Rainow, and we understand that it is a compromise that often comes with countryside living. The reason that we place a light in the rear of our car at night ,is due to the absence of street lighting and our location within the Rainow Conservation Area. However, there is a light on the outside of No 4 that can be used as desired. Rainow has traffic traveling into Macclesfield at key times of the day, then reducing with little traffic particularly in the evening and overnight.Vehicles leaving the village will have been traveling toward the cottages at a restricted speed before climbing the hill. Those traveling past the cottages should be slowing down to ensure they adhere to the speed restrictions in situ in the village. We thank you for drawing our attention to your concerns and hope that we have reassured you that our parking arrangements have not resulted in any incident to date." - Sykes owner relations
