Congleton, Cheshire, England
Horseshoe Cottage is a three bedroomed self catering single storey cottage set in the grounds of Somerford Hall Farm, the old servants quarters of an 18th century stately home.
Boasting far reaching views, and an enclosed garden, we are sure that you will enjoy a relaxing stay.
One mile from the main road, and yet only a 5 minute drive to the local shops means that you get the best of both worlds.
A peaceful tranquil setting, but convenient for local amenities. We welcome families and are close to local places of interest, including The Peak District, Alton Towers, Chester Zoo, Tatton Park, Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Grange, Manchester, and have good train connections at Congleton, Holmes Chapel and Crewe. Manchester airport is only 18 miles away.
Sited on Somerford Park Farm's famous farm ride, you get to watch the horses go by...

We had a brilliant stay at Horseshoe Cottage. Lovely home for the month whilst working at the RHS Tatton Park Flower Show. Would recommend it anyone trying to find a place to stay for the show or as a holiday let. Alison and Richard went beyond what was expected to help us. Would definitely stay again!

Veterans of BBC tv programme ' The Big Painting Challenge' reunited after a year to paint, paint, paint! Superb hospitality and comfort, Alison and Richard such caring hosts who welcomed us and catered for the needs of a diverse group of friends gathered to try their luck in ' The Buxtonn Prize' painting competition.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely review! We would love to have you back whenever you feel like wielding the brushes in Cheshire and the Peak District. Let's hope it's the first of many Arty Breaks!

Our host looked after us from the work go. Very well equipped cottage. The hot tub is brilliant, very relaxing after a long day. Excellent for families. Richard and Alison really cared for us, very knowledgeable about the area, and if they did not know, they would look it up and come around to tell you. Just on the edge of the Peak District.

Management response:

Thank you for your lovely comments. We are glad you had a good time and hope to welcome you all back in the near future.
