Castle Farm

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Dog-friendly accommodation on a Cheshire farm on the Gritstone Trail
  • A 10-minute drive to Mow Cop Castle; 35 minutes to The Roaches
  • Pet-friendly pub, canal walk and farm shop within walking distance

Once you’ve cast yourself away to Castle Farm in the Cheshire countryside, castles, farm parks and countryside trails won’t be far away. This dog-friendly site is on part of the Gritstone Trail, a 35-mile route that runs the length of the Pennines and ends at Mow Cop Castle (55 minutes’ walk or 10 minutes’ drive away).

Walking’s a sure way to take in the local scenery here, as the local canal is just half an hour’s walk away – and it leads the way all the way to Stoke-On-Trent Trent in one direction and Marple in the other.

There are pub pitstops along the route but if you want to fuel up before setting off, the closest pub (dog-friendly) is just 15 minutes’ walk down the lane. As well as homemade food, there’s a play area there for kids to run about. Another pub is 20 minutes' walk away, or a 10-minute drive will get you to Mossley’s dog-friendly pub with a beer garden and good grub.

There are places to put your feet up on the site too and nice scenery to go along with them, from sunsets through the trees to views over the Shropshire Hills and Astbury’s church in the distance, with barn and tawny owls sometimes flying by in the early evening.

The site has a woodland garden, barbecue area and firepit and on the farm, there’s a paddock with pet goats and sheep, plus secure parking in the farmyard or in the grassland and woodlands to the rear, down a small valley towards a stream.

    For me, the personal touches made all the difference : the radiators left on to warm the van up, the advice on local walks, places to visit nearby.. It all made Hana and I feel really welcome!

    Lodge was clean, warm and a great lay out with everything we needed. Nicola and Mick were great hosts, friendly and nothin was too much trouble. Feeding the goats and sheep was fab, the gorgeous Bella and Bernie (the dogs) made us laugh especially the cheeky Bella. Thank you for a wonderful stay

    The peacefulness, the solitude, being totally in nature. The hosts Nic and Mick were absolutely AMAZING! They couldn't have made us feel more welcomed! They went above and beyond👏we were the first guests to stay in the retro caravan, which was so cosy, homely, spotlessly clean, it had everything we needed. Lovely pub just a short walk away. We were invited to a charity event in the village and we had such a lovely time! The people made us feel so welcome! We left feeling recharged, revamped and ready to face reality again!!😂my dog loved it too, had plenty of walks around the place. Can't recommend this place enough!! The perfect haven for peace, being in nature, reconnecting but also plenty to do just short distances away. We will most DEFINITELY be returning! Many thanks to the hosts with the most, Nic and Mick!! Xxx

Local attractions

Kids in your clan? There shouldn’t be any need to worry about activities that will keep up with their attention span, as Glebe Farm (five minutes’ drive) has animal petting and a farm shop and Alcumlow Hall Farm (10 minutes) has a play area, ice cream parlour and blacksmithing experiences. Plus, over at the arboretum at Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre’s arboretum (25 minutes), there are some cool telescopes.

For the full-on outdoors, Tittesworth Reservoir (25 minutes) might fit the bill. There's walking, birdwatching, watersports and fishing here, but for rock climbing and hiking, The Roaches (35 minutes) is a popular prominent rocky landscape above Leek (a market town, 25 minutes' drive).

You might want to map out the way to some historical sites too, beginning with the National Trust’s Tudor manor house at Little Moreton Hall (10 minutes) and the Victorian Biddulph Grange Garden (10 minutes), along with the 73-acre Biddulph Grange Country Park (10 minutes) - plenty of space to explore, including a pool and restored boathouse. On the National Heritage List, there’s Mow Cop Castle (10 minutes) and St Mary's Church (five minutes).
