We spent 3 wonderful days at Dane cottage which is an amazing 3 storey cottage with lovely views into the valley and the sound of running water accompanying everything you do. Hilary was most welcoming and helpful before and on arrival and left us messages and treats to ease our stay. There are gorgeous walks, a good pub and Wincle brewery all within easy reach. The wonderful Roaches and Lud's church are a must. The perfect end to a long walk was lying in the bath listening to the river and birds whilst drinking a cup of tea and / or glass of something stronger. Bliss. As long as you bring the bare food essentials to last your stay, as there is no shop close by, and we didn't want to drive anywhere!....you are set for a delightful retreat. We wish we had been able to stay much longer and plan to return
Everything you could ever want in a cottage. Five star accommodation Great views nothing was to much trouble Thanks Jane & Lindsay
An idyllic retreat in this beautiful area, Dane Cottage is impeccable, décor is so tasteful, felt at home as soon as we arrived, three nights is not enough, views are amazing, many lovely walks from the doorstep plus a cosy pub & a brewery, what more could you want! we have had such a memorable stay, just fantastic..Thank you.
We have just come back from a wonderful weekend in this beautiful cottage. I do not have one bad word to say. It is idyllic and the description is completely accurate; magical and romantic. The cottage is warm, beautifully decorated, very cosy and comfortable with all amenities and a log fire. The location is stunning. We spent most of the weekend watching a kingfisher fly up and down the river stopping periodically to looking for fish, less than 5mins walk away from the cottage! There is an abundance of wildlife surrounding the cottage. We also enjoyed drinking at the local brewery, eating at the pub which is across the road, getting ice cream from the local farm and generally staring out of the cottage windows fixated by the fabulous scenery including herons, horses, playful lambs and ducks! Hilary, the owner is so very welcoming and very easy to get hold of; she is excellent at replying to emails. I would definitely recommend this cottage. Overall wonderful weekend, I wish we were still there now… Thank you!
Just returned from our stay at this beautiful property where we spent three unforgettable days. We arrived in the dark and opened the door to a warm and cosy welcome (Thank you Hilary for the extra treats)
It is a prefect place to unwind, relax and switch off from a busy outside world, there is however a good wifi connection if needed.
We found the amenities which are located across three floors to be of an exceptional high standard which is in keeping with Hilary and Andrews other property on the outskirts of Congleton.
The views from the cottage invites you to take walks, we were lucky to wake up to snow on the morning of our second day and raced in search of our boots and wellies.. We made very good use of the nearby Ship Inn which is only a short walk from the cottage, the food and ale is excellent and we found the locals fun and friendly. We have stayed in both properties owned by Hilary and Andrew and now feel spoilt for choice but we are sure to revisit both again soon to explore more and no doubt lose ourselves again in these amazing properties in excellent locations..
Our 2nd stay at Wincle. I was attending a course in Macclesfield, and it was our wedding anniversary so it made sense to stay in Wincle. Love the cosiness, cleanliness and comfort. We have also booked Congleton for New Year! (will be our 2nd stay there too) I can highly recommend both properties if you enjoy quality self catering, with many added lovely finishing touches...
