Lakeside Cottage offers an oasis of tranquillity within the beautiful grounds of a historic mansion and is ideal for two couples or a family to embark on an adventure in the Cheshire countryside.

Lakeside Cottage is a charming and traditional character cottage set on the grounds of Grade I listed Jacobean mansion which is the residence of the family that owns it. The cottage exudes period glamour through details including exposed wooden ceiling beams and a 400-year-old sandstone fireplace complete with wood burner, whilst luxuries include a sumptuous slipper bath. As the name suggests, there are views of the lake just outside, whilst the estate grounds offer nineteen acres of gorgeous gardens and parkland to explore, including a walking trail that leads to a 1,000-year-old chestnut tree.

The trail follows Cheshire’s Sandstone Ridge and offers spectacular views of the countryside. Or, take a stroll in Delamere Forest which is also home to Go Ape where thrilling adventures in the treetops can be had along rope walkways and zip-wires.
