The property

Wincle 1 mile.

Set on the owners’ small working livestock farm, on the edge of the Peak District National Park, is this lovely detached barn conversion.

The drive up to this cottage is simply spectacular, surrounded by beautiful sweeping countryside.

Entry is directly into the kitchen, with a large dining space and a step down into the sitting area with its cosy woodburner, the perfect place to settle beside after a long country walk.

A door leads out to the front patio area, where you can sit and take in those beautiful views.

Off the kitchen is a ground floor shower room and double bedroom, which is full of character, with a low ceiling and stone flagged floor.

The first floor offers two further bedrooms and a second bathroom.

There are many walks available pretty much from the doorstep, including the Gritstone Trail, a 35-mile walking route that is famous in the North West.

As well as walking, there are wonderful cycling opportunities to take advantage of and the surrounding area is spotted with traditional villages, most of which house a good food pub or two.

Within half an hour’s drive are the towns of Congleton and Macclesfield and the attractive market towns of Buxton and Leek, each offering a wonderful day out.

This is a beautiful cottage in a superb area, perfect for enjoying the stunning surroundings, all year round.

About the location

WINCLE

Macclesfield 5 miles; Leek 7.5 miles; Buxton 9 miles.

Wincle is a charming little village set in the Peak District National Park and almost within equal distance of the towns of Macclesfield, Buxton, Congleton and Leek. Wincle is surrounded by some beautiful scenery, with scattered farms, rolling fields and moorland, and lies next to the River Dane, offering some stunning walks. Further trails can be enjoyed nearby; within a short drive you can enjoy a ramble over the rocky Roaches surrounding Tittesworth Reservoir, or take to Buxton, which is the starting point for a host of walking and cycling pathways. Along with the wonderful walking countryside, make sure you visit the local Wincle Brewery, offering traditional beer and brewing techniques, making for a fascinating afternoon out. There are some lovely country pubs to discover scattered around, and of course, the tourist town of Buxton includes a fine selection of amenities along with some impressive architecture including the magnificent semi-circular Crescent, Pavilion Gardens and Opera House, just twenty minutes’ drive away. Wincle is a pretty little Peak District village, the perfect place for a rural retreat.
