Situated on the western edge of the Peak District National Park, the luxurious self catering holiday cottages offer accommodation in the village of Rainow. They are located in the grounds of Kerridge End House, a former Gentleman’s residence built in 1837 for John Mellor. Kerridge End is in the conservation area of the village, which lies in the foothills of the Pennines, straddling the Cheshire boundary of the Peak District National Park.
Rainow is blessed with a massive network of well-maintained footpaths, in total 44 miles, varying from quiet rambles to tough hill walking on rugged moors. The famous Gritstone Trail runs through the village. For the cyclists there are the Riding the Ridges and the Grit and Gears cycle routes close by.
