A spacious, comfortable holiday home on the Cheshire side of the small (steep) hillside village of Mow Cop, Cheshire/Staffordshire border. With ample space for six guests plus baby. We are the perfect base to enjoy the many hiking, cycling and sight-seeing opportunities available in the area. Ideally situated if you want to get away from everything.

No parties or events to be held & no groups of under 25’s.
Under Folly Cottage is purely for private guests not business trips or workmen/women

The space
The house comprises


Fully kitted out kitchen/diner.

Living room to relax in after a day out with blankets and games. Smart TV with TV apps such as Netflix, that you can log in to. There are also plenty of HDMI ports for you to plug in a fire stick etc

Bedroom 2 - Twin beds. ( or Super King - please request when booking).

Bedroom 3 - Double & Single bed.

Ground floor WC and large wash hand basin. (Down a step).

FIRST FLOOR - rooms within pitch of roof.

Principle Bedroom with Super King size bed (can be made up with 2 single duvets - please request when booking) and cot (120 x 60).

Bathroom with WC, sink and bath with shower over.

All bedrooms come with a dressing tables, hairdryer and make-up remover.

If you are visiting with children we have retractable stair Gates at the top and bottom of the stairs. High Chairs , Bed Rails and Travel Cots (in addition to the Cot in Principle Bedroom) are available to request. I do not supply cot duvets as I find guests like to bring their own sleeping bags etc. I do provide fitted cot sheets.

Outside, we have a lovely decked patio with dining area, (there are steps on the patio and it is open to the side of the house with no gates).

Space for two cars on the front driveway, we cannot accommodate large Vans, trailers or horseboxes. The drive is at an angle - it’s best to reverse on it. Low cars may prefer to park on the road.

There is a 13Amp weather proof socket ideal for charging electric vehicles if you bring your own hookup cable etc - please let me know if you need this switched on. As all vehicles are different we are not able to put a cost to this extra and would appreciate if you left cash to cover the electricity used - 30p per kWh.m

Mow Cop, England, United Kingdom

Mow Cop sits on the edge of the Gritstone Trail and is a short distance from the Peak District and many other hiking routes in the area. Cyclists will also love being literally next door to the famous ‘Killer Mile’ (#36 on Strava’s top 100 climbs). We are very lucky to have a brand new Pump Park in Kidsgrove only 2 miles away.
In close proximity (in some cases visible from the cottage!) are some of the best tourist destinations in the region. Nearby National Trust properties include Mow Cop Folly, Little Moreton Hall, Biddulph Grange, Quarry Bank, Hare Hill and Nether Alderley Mill. The beautiful Cheshire countryside can be explored at Alderley Edge, Tatton Park, Dunham Massey and Lyme Park.

Astbury Mere is worth a visit and ideal to walk or run round (Congleton Parkrun - 9am Saturday mornings).

Unesco World Heritage site Jodrell Bank is only a 20 minute drive away.

For a taste of Staffordshire’s pottery heritage, it is only a short drive to the Wedgewood, Emma Bridgewater, Churchill, Spode and Portmeirion factories.

Other fantastic places to visit include Chester, Chester Zoo, Beeston Castle, Peckforton Hills, Trentham Gardens and Trentham Monkey World. Alton Towers is only 45 minutes drive from the cottage. Gullivers World Warrington is only 45 minute drive away .

Soft Play. - Castaway Congleton is an ideal place to tire out the little ones.

Affinity Outlet Staffordshire is a 10 minute drive with Nike, M&S, Clarks, Denby,Next & plenty of other outlet shops all undercover, plus a Costa.
