Nestled between Wilmslow and picturesque Alderley Edge, this elegant lodge gives you all the charm of a country hotel only 12 miles from Manchester. Dating back to the 1880s and dripping with original features and luxurious touches, it’s amongst some of the most characterful accommodation in Cheshire. In fact, it was once one of the grandest private residences in wealthy Alderley Edge. Today it offers 10 comfy, modern rooms and a cosy pub and restaurant, where you can savour fresh, seasonal food in the warmth of a crackling open fire. Alderley Edge may boast the highest number of millionaires per square mile in the country, but there’s much more to this pretty village than star watching. It’s built upon a sandstone escarpment that overlooks the Cheshire Plain, where walkers will find many picturesque routes criss-crossing its beautiful scenery. The National Trust’s Quarry Bank Mill and stylish Knutsford are also well worth a visit
