Orchard Cottage is one of two Cheshire Hunt holiday cottages in Rainow on the Cheshire border. Orchard and Damson Cottage are the result of a barn conversion completed in 2008. The original building dating back to the 1850’s is situated next to a local landmark, the former Cheshire Hunt Inn from which the Hunt used to ride. The cottages have their own separate facilities but are available for hire together for extended family holidays to accommodate 11 guests.
Described by the Peak District Authority as a property of architectural interest, the barn is located on a small track, which winds its way up through the valley, which forms part of the well-known walkers’ path, the Gritstone Trail. The luxury self-catering retreat has been individually furnished and has its own unique character. Enjoying wonderful views over the open countryside, the cottage is within walking distance of the old mill village of Bollington, with its pubs, restaurants, local shops and parks.

"We stayed three nights and I cannot recommend the place highly enough. It had everything we needed for a short stay, the car park was very close and the views were of the rolling Devonish countryside. We were literally less than 5 minutes drive from 2 Supermarkets and the Park & Ride for Dartmouth. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed to cook as well as a small selection of helpful key essentials (tea, coffee, cooking oil, salt/ pepper, washing liquid, etc. As a family we like to explore and stay somewhere different. In this case we'd make an exception."
"Brilliant location, lovely out door space for kids to play, spotless chalet would definitely go again!"
"Thank you Gemma for hosting us in your lovely chalet - a short drive into Dartmouth and a fantastic view of the River Dart estuary. Beds all very comfy and a pleasant surprise that it can sleep 6! Great value! Many thanks!"
