Crag Hall is an imposing sandstone Georgian country house, with elevated views over the Peak District National Park. Near Cheshire’s eastern boundary, in the hamlet of Wildboarclough, which nestles within Macclesfield Forest, once a Royal Hunting territory, where legend has it the last wild boar of England were hunted.

With breath-taking views over some of the country’s most beautiful wild scenery, including the magnificent Shutlingsloe (the ‘Matterhorn of Cheshire’). The panoramic views are worth the steep climb. On a clear day you can see the views reach over the Cheshire plain and Peak District, to the Clwydian Hills, the Mersey estuary and to the industrial landscape of the River Trent.

For a change of scene the local pub is within walking distance and the towns of Macclesfield and Buxton are within an easy drive distance, both 15 minutes away.
