Holmes Chapel is a charming Cheshire village with a rich history including the old cotton mills, which gave rise to this development's name. Nestled in the Dane Valley, with the River Dane meandering around its northern reaches, the village is perfect for those who love the outdoors. Surrounded by picturesque scenery, The Cottons is the ideal base for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and golfers to enjoy everything the desirable area has to offer.

The village has all the amenities you could need, with a small shopping precinct which hosts a supermarket, general stores, bakery and hardware store. There's a new Aldi store planned for the village, with a proposed opening date of December 2016. And you'll also find a well-stocked library, sports clubs and a number of bars, caf├ęs and restaurants.

Filled with history and character, Holmes Chapel has an impressive array of listed buildings including St Luke's Church (see image right) which is Grade I listed and built in about 1430. The Grade II Twemlow Viaduct to the north-east of the village is a spectacle (see the front cover image) - dated 1841, it was built to span the River Dane and can still be enjoyed today in all its glory.

Holmes Chapel has a close association with the nearby town of Middlewich which hosts an annual folk and boat festival which attracts 400 narrowboats and thousands of visitors each year over three days. Regular farmers markets are also held throughout the year as well as ad hoc events such as the Roman Festival.

Outstanding schooling for all…

If you have children, living at The Cottons means you'll have well-regarded schooling on your doorstep. There is one secondary school, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School (One Direction's Harry Styles was a student there!), and two primary schools: Holmes Chapel Primary School and Hermitage Primary School. All the schools mentioned have an impressive ‘outstanding' rating by Ofsted.

With its highly sought-after location, excellent schools and handy commuter links The Cottons could be the ideal choice if you're looking for a new home.
