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.

    Everything! We had such a relaxing time. Loved cooking on the fire pit. It was a bonus not to have electricity, it just added to the atmosphere at night time. Warm shower next to the yurt. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night, and will definitely book again. Jayne was a fantastic host and nothing was too much trouble.

    All the twinkly lights and extra touches. I loved the kitchen hut with everything you need and the bathroom hut with lovely shower. However, the best thing for us was the secluded spot the yurt was in. Nothing to disturb you but the cows 😆

    Disliked: 

    The wind up lamps provided are not very effective. Bring your own battery lamps/touches.

    The peace and quiet, very relaxed environment, my son loved his stay here.

    Disliked: 

    The kitchen equipment was dirty, I had to wash them before I could use them. Also stale water left in the kettle.
    The centre lighting didn’t work which was quiet crucial as it’s all non electrical and these ran off batteries.

From the manager...

I can only apologize for the dirty kitchen equipment i shall be quite honest i do not check the pots and pans are clean as per house rule guests are supposed to clean and tidy after use, i just assume that they have, i shall also from now on make sure that the kettles are emptied between customers as i truly had no idea that water went stale. Had you informed me that the centre light wasn't working at the time i would have happily come and changed the batteries .
