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.

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.

Please note

    Lovely quiet area and scenic. The yurt was beautifully set out and had all we needed for camping. The owner was very welcoming and ensured we had all we needed.
    Pleasant walk across fields to a pub.
    Compost loo took a bit of getting used to but didn’t spoil the weekend.

    We enjoyed our 4 night stay very much. Just a few minutes from the M6 but undisturbed by traffic noise.
    Yurt so cosy even when it rained.
    Our hosts Jane and Jim so welcoming and really helpful.
    Local pub the White Lion offering a high standard of food.
    Locally made Snugburys ice cream a must to visit.
    Chester Zoo and Blue Planet Aquarium just 33 miles away and both outstanding.

    Disliked: 

    Some may find the compostable toilet offputting but it was clean and free from flies.It was a big bonus having our own toilet and shower room.

Secluded yurt with great facilities and friendly owners! 20/08/2018

  • Liked: 

    Lovely farm which this secluded yurt is based. It is only about 40 minutes from alton towers so great if your spending the day there and want to have somewhere picturesque all to yourself. There's a double bed with two camp beds underneath and an outside bean bag for laying out on in this nice weather! The yurt is actually in a bit of a dip and there is only cows and sheep nearby so it really is private and just lovely. The toilet/shower facility is also your own and nice and clean. Really is a sun trap too! It has a log fire if it is chilly at night. A really great place, been twice this summer and want to go back again! Good for all the family and couples.
