The Garden Cottage
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Tucked away in prime Cheshire countryside, yet just a mile from the charming and elegant market town of Knutsford, lies the Garden Cottage.
This beautiful two-bedroomed and two-bathroomed residence is a quintessentially English cottage with a contemporary twist. It has also been furnished and equipped with love, care and flair: from sumptuous fabrics right through to the finest Egyptian cotton sheets and the fluffiest robes. The Garden Cottage makes the perfect hideaway for a week, a weekend or simply a home-from-home for a night or two on a business trip.
On your doorstep: fields, farmland, space and grace. And, just a stroll away, the lovely old Dun Cow inn,
a 2010 finalist in the Cheshire Dining Pub of the Year.
