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.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

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

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.

So good we're going back!

This is an excellent site for what we want to do during a trip away, plenty of places to visit, good traffic free dog walk from the site, and a quiet open flat yet sheltered site. It is quite easily accessed, although the last 0.25ml is along a rather narrow lane. The site itself is a large grass paddock beyond the farm yard but there is also a large hardstanding area with it's own EHUs. The dog walk is a hard track of 1.7mls length around the farm fields, and there is a separate 0.5ml hard path to the nearby pub. There area many places of interest close by, including Biddulph Grange Gardens, Style & Quarry Bank, Alderley Edge and Jodrell Bank. There is both an Aldi and Morrison's at Congleton for the essential provisions, and the farm itself sells goat meat, from it's own herd of goats. The lanes around the area are popular with road cyclist which is an indication of how quiet they are. We enjoyed our stay here last month that we've already booked to return.

Excellent site for the money

Stayed here for quite a few nights in a large 30ft motorhome. The owners were lovely and made us feel very welcome. They were very accommodating. As it’s winter we stayed on the hard standing area which is quite large and right next to the grassy bit should the weather improve. Site is down a county lane but not to far to the nearest pub or shops. Overall a very good site for the price and wouldn’t hesitate to return.

Great choice

Wanted a location suitable for visiting a number of National Trust properties and Messuage Farm seemed a good choice. We were definitely not disappointed. Prior to our arrival it had poured with rain for days and so the spacious hard standing area (not shown on the site photos) was superb. Good basic amenities and the stone path provides a lovely leisurely walk free from traffic to enjoy the countryside and view the goats. Very quiet and peaceful site offering a good enough excuse for a return visit at any time of year.
