If wide-open spaces and rolling countryside rock your socks, then these properties should head straight to the top of your list/
Oakenclough Farm, Macclesfield
The term ‘idyllic location’ could pretty much have been written for this glorious Cheshire cottage. If seclusion and cosy comforts are important to you, this one offers it all.
The views in every direction are breathtaking: expect to see hordes of artists perched on every inch of drystone wall in the warmer months, recording the ever-changing scenery of farmland, hills and woodland, particularly the iconic Shutlingsgoe hilltop. With views like this, you won’t ever feel the need to flee these shores again. You will also need to invest in some serious walking boots and a cagoule, as you’ll be out there day after day, loving the outdoor life. It’s all rather beautiful indoors too, so you have somewhere on which to rest your contented gaze night and day. The farmhouse kitchen meets every aesthetic and functional desire, with the obligatory AGA taking pride of place and a rather spectacular and ancient fireplace too. Four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a multitude of reception rooms and a boot room and laundry deliver all the space and comfort contemporary living demands, in delicious traditional style.
Mertyn Hall, Flintshire
Take a step over the border and magnificent views are virtually guaranteed – and the aspects from the rather grand 18th-century Mertyn Hall are no exception. Indeed, there is no element of this three-storey home that cannot be described with the adjective grand.
Most rooms are really rather super-grand, with many original treasures. Though it has to be said, somebody apparently decided to ‘modernise’ during the decade design forgot… Ah well, we love a project.
Wincle Grange, Macclesfield
If 360 degrees of green doesn’t appeal, look away now. There’s even a bluebelll wood. With nearly 14 acres of land to play with, a private golf course wouldn’t be out of the question – there are even farm buildings in which you can keep your buggy.
The farmhouse is delightfully quaint and brings with it every thick stone wall, deep wooden beam and stone window frame you could possibly desire. Snuggle up by the AGA and plan your dream country home.
Hillside House, Burwardsley
Brace yourself… not only does this five-bedroom home offer stunning views across Cheshire’s green and pleasant land, but in its 2.5 acres it has an indoor swimming pool, a games room, a hobbies room and a garden room.
Never was a home more designed with leisure time in mind. There are also five bedrooms, three bathrooms and a sauna. Yes, you read that right – a sauna. This pretty property is an all-round winner in our books.
