Why stay here ...

Messuage Farm CL is a lovely family run site in a quiet location with views across the fields to the Pennines.

The site is a well maintained flat grassed area and there are also hardstanding pitches available for all weather visits.

Dogs are welcome and we have a 1.7 mile stone path around our field for walkers and dogs to enjoy.

We have many local village pubs providing good food. Our CL is also located within easy reach of the shops, restaurants and facilities of the towns and villages of Congleton, Holmes Chapel, Macclesfield, Alderley Edge and Knutsford. Messuage Farm CL is a great base from which to explore the beautiful countryside and historic scenes of Cheshire and Staffordshire, favourites include the stately halls  and gardens of Arley, Capesthorne, Tatton and Gawsworth. We are within close proximity of Jodrell Bank Radio Telescope and across the field from Clonter Opera.

On the farm we have goats, alpacas, hens and an abundance of wildlife. We often have fresh eggs for sale and our outdoor reared goat meat too.

Messuage Farm
We have never visited this area before, needed somewhere to stay for our visit to Tatton park. We were so pleased on arrival to see what a lovely place this was. We had a very nice welcome from the owners,who showed us where everything was. The site was nice manicured field. Plenty of animals to see. And very nice off road walks round the farm. It was very peaceful place. As it was so hot, we didn’t go out every day,and enjoyed our surrounding. Their were eggs to buy on site. And plenty of fields of wild flower fields. We would love to visit their again.

Very Good "Away from it All "CL in Cheshire

Messuage Farm
As the title says this CL is tucked away in countryside about 3-4 miles north of Congleton. The route in as specified in the S.D. should be followed as it's easy to find if you do. Otherwise you can approach from the A535 from Holmes Chapel or Chelford and pick up the route in from Lower Withington. The entrance is wide enough for all units and the lane is quiet generally. It is a large spacious C.L. with grass and hardstanding pitches (which are near to the farm buildings. Not a lot else one can say as the Elsan point, water and electric are all to hand. The only downside depends on what you want to do when on the C.L. When we stayed 2 other units were using it to visit relatives or have them visit the site and they found it perfectly situated, some others just wanted to chill out after such a long period of lockdown but we wanted to get stuck into serious walking, for which we had to travel a bit of a distance but anyone seriously wanting quiet lanes to cycle in would be catered for. It would suit anyone wishing to visit Jodrell Bank, about 5 minutes drive away. Shopping provisions catered for in Congleton. Owners very pleasant and we found nothing to complain about at all. They did request Bank Transfer for funds so best checking if you don't want to do that.

Visiting Friends

Messuage Farm
We picked this site as it was only a few miles from our friends and we are glad we did, it's a lovely site. The pitches are well spaced out, you don't feel you are on top of your neighbour. The farm was quiet and we were welcome to see the goats and Alpaca's. The farm path was excellent for a morning run and at 1.7 mile you can do laps and pick a drink on the way past the van. There are cycle routes going past the entrance to the farm and they link up with a number of others in the area. We had a great time and would definitely go back again when visiting our friends.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Messuage Farm
First thing to say is that it is most important that you follow the directions given in the site handbook and do not use your satnav, or you will have to negotiate some narrow lanes unsuitable for a caravan. We were given a warm welcome by Mr Kennerley and immediately felt at home. The pitches are well-spaced as the field is very spacious, so you won't have any trouble with noisy neighbours. The site is very basic with one water tap sited in a barn, but you don't need any more. A very quiet, rural site situated in the heart of the country. What we really appreciated was that the grass was cut and the clippings taken away, which is not always the case on all certified locations. I hesitate to praise the site any more, or it will become too popular, but we would certainly stay there again.

A lovely spot in the countryside

Messuage Farm
This was our 2nd visit to Messuage Farm and we weren't disappointed. It's in a lovely spot, surrounded by fields and woodland. We pitched overlooking the pumpkin patch and goat field. Very Autumnal! It rained a lot while we were there but the grassed pitch we were on was pretty much ok. The dog walk on the farm is brilliant - either for a quick wee walk or as a start to a longer trip out. It's not far from where we live so is perfect for a quick getaway for us. We were very pleased to see that The Black Swan pub has re-opened. It's very close to visit - literally across the lane and field. It also has easy access to local places of interest such as Jodrell Bank. We took the dog up to Macclesfield Forest - about 20 minutes away. There's a little stall by the lane selling seasonal produce - we had some amazing heritage tomatoes. We can highly recommend this little gem.
