Stylish contemporary interior at Smithy Barn, Sandiway, Cheshire

Cheshire is a quintessentially British corner of the country, with everything from countryside and coast to cultural centres and kids’ attractions on offer all year round. And, if you’re on the hunt for an ideal spot from which to explore the West Country and Welsh Borders, then look no further than Smithy Barn, in Sandiway just 15 miles from Chester.

A classic Victorian barn conversion with a twist

A perfect spot for couples, Smithy Barn is a characterful, contemporary barn conversion that’s full of style from the moment you enter. Victorian red brick walls and a local slate roof give way to a sumptuously modern monochrome interior, featuring exposed beams, chic furnishings and a spiral staircase up to the mezzanine level sleeping area.

The property features all mod cons, including Wi-Fi and Freeview TV, and you can enjoy the half-acre of lawns complete with garden furniture. Conveniently, it’s within walking distance of pubs and amenities, within five miles of Go Ape and Delamere Forest, and just an hour from Manchester on the train.

Rural holidays in Cheshire

Cheshire nestles on the north end of the Welsh border, with villages of local red sandstone and thatched roofs, and rolling green countryside.

The area boasts a host of attractions for the whole family. Chester is a hive of historical sites, from the mediaeval walls to the Gothic cathedral and Roman Gardens, while just outside there’s the Tudor Little Moreton Hall and Quarry Bank Mill, built during the industrial revolution. You can also keep the kids happy with a trip to Chester Zoo, Crocky Tail or Ice Cream Farm.
