Map & Directions

Road Directions

Leave the motorway and head for Congleton. From Congleton town centre follow signs for Buxton A54. After approximately 3 miles you will reach traffic lights on a narrow bridge over the River Dane, carry on along this road under the railway viaduct and the property can be found at the next entrance on the right hand side with a large boulder at the bottom of the drive on a left hand bend.

Public Transport Directions

By rail: Macclesfield - 5 miles. Leave Macclesfield on the A523 to Leek. At Bosley crossroads (where the A523 crosses the A54) turn right to Congleton, over the canal, over an old railway bridge and we are the second farm entrance on the left with a big boulder at the bottom of the drive on a right hand bend.
