    Damson Cottage is one of two Cheshire Hunt holiday cottages in Rainow on the Cheshire border. Damson and Orchard (CH004) are the result of a barn conversion completed in 2008. The original building dating back to the 1850's is situated next to a local landmark, the former Cheshire Hunt Inn from which the Hunt used to ride. Described by the Peak District Authority as a property of architectural interest, the barn is located on a small track, which winds its way up through the valley, which forms part of the well-known walkers' path, the Gritstone Trail. The luxury self-catering retreat has been individually furnished and has its own unique character. Enjoying wonderful views over the open countryside the cottage is within walking distance of the old mill village of Bollington, with its pubs, restaurants, local shops and parks.
    The holiday rental provides an excellent base for visitors to reach many of the attractions in the Peak District such as the well-known spa town of Buxton and the underground caverns at Castleton. A short distance away from a number of attractions in neighbouring Cheshire, holiday guests have many places to visit including three National Trust Properties; Tatton Park, Dunham Massey and Lyme Park. Manchester with its excellent museums, shops and restaurants is a 45-minute drive away and the picturesque Roman city of Chester is an hour away for those who wish to travel a bit further afield.
    Damson and Orchard Cottages have their own separate facilities but are available for hire together for extended family holidays to accommodate 11 Guests. Manchester Airport is 30 minutes' drive away and Macclesfield train station a 10-minute drive away, which provides good train connections and a regular 2-hour train service to London. A games room with full size table tennis and pool tables is available for the use of the occupants of both Damson and Orchard Cottages and is located within the grounds of the barn.
    Further places within the area to visit include:
    Poole's Cavern and Country Park - Visit and explore the vast caves and crystals that have been created. www.poolescavern.co.uk
    Dunge Valley Hidden Gardens www.dungevalley.co.uk
    Macclesfield Silk Museum www.silkmacclesfield.org.uk

    "Lovely conversion. Warm and very clean cottage. Fanatastic woodburner and loads of games for children. Lots of space and helpful owner. Did not feel it was a luxury rural retreat however compared to other properties we have stayed in. Duvets and towels were a bit thin. An enjoyable holiday nonetheless."

    "Our first visit. Very impressed with the house and the surrounding area. Visited Speedwell Cavern. Highly recommend the town of Bakewell. A delight and those cakes! Enjoyed The Poachers and The Viceroy (for Indian food). Both within easy walking distance. "

    "Our third visit and it never disappoints. The house is so welcoming and oozes with 'relaxation'. I agree Olivers is great. Had Sunday lunch there. Ate at the Vale - good food and beer! Our sons delighted in the walks with the symbols. Also walking along the canals is enjoyable. Muddy, so come prepared with wellies. Thanks for the scones and eggs - delicious. NH, Derbyshire"
