'The Vestry' is an 1846 church building, now a delightful studio cottage for couples, families or business trips with easy access to Manchester airport/city. On the edge of the Peak District it includes a comfortable double bed, 2 single beds on the mezzanine. Relax in front of the wood burning stove, or on the lovely rear deck overlooking our brook and woodland. It’s an easy 5 minute walk to the village with great pubs, shops and restaurants.

The space
Lovingly renovated over the past 5 years, we have transformed The Vestry into a calming, private sanctuary full of character, history and interest.

With its own entrance and the ability to self check in - this property is perfect if you are currently wanting to have a break away from being at home without the worry of sharing facilities with other people. We have subscribed to the Airbnb 'Commitment to Clean' which means you can be assured of a safe space to enjoy some much needed time away.

The Vestry comfortably sleeps 4, with the main bed on the ground floor and 2 single beds on the mezzanine level. You do need to climb a ladder up to mezzanine so we recommend that only children over 7 should sleep up top. For younger children, or those who need access to the bathroom during the night, we can provide an additional single bed on the ground floor. The mezzanine isn't just for children however, and adults can also sleep up there (just watch the head height) as it can be a little tight (see photos).

There is an en-suite bathroom with a fabulous shower, and we provide towels and toiletries, as well as all linen, duvets and pillows. If you're planning to stay for more than a few days, we're happy to do a change over of linen and towels during your stay. (Please ensure you ask us to so we know to have the linen ready for you)

The wood burning stove will be ready to light on arrival, so you can enjoy the warmth and ambience of a real fire! There are plenty of board games too, and in the summer the children are welcome to play in the courtyard.

We provide a selection of teas, coffee and milk for your arrival so you can settle in after your drive, and there is a variety of cereals for breakfast. In the kitchenette there is an under-counter fridge freezer and microwave. We are within an easy walk to the village and we find a lot of our guests like to eat out when they are here, and with a variety of cafes, delis and restaurants there are lots of great options to choose from.

The bi-fold doors open up to a very private deck, overlooking the brook and our woodland, which is full of wildlife. This is a beautiful, secluded spot, with a table and chairs perfect for breakfast, or an end-of-day G&T or glass of wine!

You can park on our driveway or smaller cars can drive into the courtyard - there is additional parking around the corner from the property should you need it.

Poynton is a fantastic village for walking and cycling and The Vestry is perfectly located. From the front door you can walk to many of the accessible footpaths that weave through the village, up towards the canal and Lyme Park or down through the Village and over to Poynton Pool. We are available to give you any guidance and recommend places to go to should you need it.

Guest access
While The Vestry is on our property, situated in the courtyard behind our house, it and the lovely deck area is all yours and very private with its own entrance door access.

We have a key safe for self check in, and while we are generally at home and available if you have any questions, due to current safe distancing we will leave you to settle in and come and go as you please. Our guests really feel they are away from it all and often comment on how idyllic the location is.

Other things to note
The kitchenette includes a toaster, kettle, cafetiere, microwave oven and under counter fridge freezer, so its not a full kitchen. We do supply cereals, tea, milk, coffee, bowls, plates and cutlery, glasses. If you require any further kitchen equipment feel free to ask and we can organize that for you.
There isnt aTV - but with good wifi you can watch TV on screens/tablets. We do have a bluetooth DAB radio, and a selection of magazines, board games and cards.
There isnt any washing machine either although we can recommend a laundry if you need to do washing.
They have a church service at 10am and 6pm on a Sunday, and a band which practices from 9am Sunday morning. We share an adjoining wall with the church so please note you will hear the band in the morning.

Location

Poynton, England, United Kingdom

Poynton is a lovely small town with a distinctly village feel. It's located on the edge of the Peak District National Park, and separated from the Manchester conurbation by a large area of green belt, giving Poynton a semi rural character with a huge amount of green space.

We have a great selection of cafes, delis, and restaurants in the village, and lots of independent shops giving it a unique feel. There are a couple of great pubs (The Farmers Arms offers great food), bars and we also have a fantastic live music venue - The Acoustic Lounge - with gigs every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Further away from the village centre, we have some classic country pubs serving great food.

The train station is about 1.5 miles away with direct routes to Manchester and we have a regular bus route too.
