Snape Bank Farm: Spectacular sunsets

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.

    absolutely stunning location, very clean and comfy! The host were warm and welcoming. Being surrounding by the cows and the sheep whilst having a drink outside in the countryside was so relaxing and even the rain didn’t stop us! Brilliant fields to walk our dog on too, we will definitely be coming back, most like to try out the hurt or the lodge! Fabulous!
