The Courtyard at Swettenham Hall is an unique collection of just eight country properties in an unrivalled rural setting with magnificent open views over lightly wooded countryside and the Dane Valley. The Stables was built in 1998 by Egerton Estates Ltd and accessed at the end of a private half mile driveway and through the wonderful parkland setting that is The Swettenham Hall Estate. The Courtyard comprises managed landscaped grounds and extensive paddocks with menage extending to approximately 7.5 acres which residents have the exclusive use of. In addition a double garage, brick built store and two allocated parking spaces with visitor spaces available. From the doorstep there are beautiful country walks to be enjoyed down onto the Dane Valley along with coarse fishing rights along the River Dane itself.
Located within some of Cheshire's most beautiful countryside in an idyllic rural situation, The Courtyard is very secluded but not isolated. Swettenham Village is about half a mile distant with many attractive period properties, a 13th Century Church and a very highly regarded local hostelry, The Swettenham Arms, well known for its good food. For the commuter, access to the nearby towns of Holmes Chapel (about 5 miles), Knutsford and Alderley Edge are about 11 miles distant and the M6 motorway is easily accessed at Holmes Chapel, junction 18. Manchester International Airport is about 17 miles away. Excellent Independant and State Primary and Secondary Schools are all easily reached at the aforementioned towns making the location not just idyllic but practical and convenient. Intercity train links available at Crewe and Macclesfield.
From Knutsford take the A537 Chelford Road for about five miles turning right at the roundabout signed Holmes Chapel. After about three miles bear left after the car dealership onto Longshoot Lane turning left at its end onto the B5392, turn first right at Withington Green, signed for Swettenham and follow this lane to its end turning left towards Swettenham Village and down the valley and up the other side passing the turning on your right for Swettenham Village itself. The driveway to Swettenhall Hall and the courtyard will then soon be seen on your right.
