View from the farm

General

  • Peaceful and secluded site on a working farm five miles from Crewe
  • Within walking distance of two thatched black and white pubs
  • Under an hour's drive from Alton Towers and Cheshire

What a lovely little place – and within walking distance of a thatched black and white pub that that the Snape Bank Farm owners say is an absolute must.

Peace and quiet reigns at this off-grid, secluded and rural site, on a small working farm with beef suckler cows and rare breed sheep (and hens; farm eggs are available for your morning fry-up). This is a land of serene countryside walks and spectacular sunsets, teeny old-fashioned Cheshire villages, and family days out to keep kids occupied for weeks: Alton Towers is less than an hour's drive away.

The yurt for hire is in a secluded suntrap on the farm, and comes with its own bathroom facility with shower and composting toilet. It's equipped too with a camp-style kitchen cooker, cutlery and crockery for four persons, pots pans and a kettle, plus bedding for the double bed. Logs for the woodburner can be purchased from the site,

Snape Bank is within simple strolling distance of the old village of Barthomley and the White Lion pub; the White Lion of Weston is within walking distance in the other direction. Further afield, Crewe is five miles away and Chester is within an hour's drive.

The team can book off-road experiences for guests with a bit of notice: just let them know your requirements when you book.

    Really peaceful area, the yurt is comfortable and homely with all the commodities you’d need for a short stay. If you want to escape the real world and relax there is no better place to stay! We don’t live far from here but still worthwhile for that escape. Toilet & shower facilities good too and eco-friendly

    We adore this peaceful haven. It's great to find such a magical place , in a busy world. The facilities include a very comfortable bed, a hot shower in a very clean bathroom , magical lighting and a handy camping stove. The owners are so friendly and helpful. Its lovely to wake up to bird song. Bring a bottle of wine and a good book and you'll really enjoy your stay. We'll be back soon ☺

    What a little gem, tucked away in a corner of a field in Crewe you could be anywhere.
    The Yurt and bathroom facilites were very clean, there was everything we could need in the camping kitchen and a BBQ available to use outside.The bed was super comfy and the log burner quickly warmed up the yurt at night (logs are 5.00 from the owners and its plenty for all night)

    I think this little place will get better and better over time as more things are added and we will definitely be back again. It was a lovely relaxing night away.
