A charming family house in a wonderful rural setting


Gallowsclough Farm is set back from a quiet country lane in a
wonderfully tranquil position with fantastic rural views.

Oakmere is well placed for commuting to the retail and commercial centres of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester with good road links to the M56, connecting with the M6. Both Manchester and Liverpool Airports are with easy reach and Crewe and Chester have mainline rail services to London Euston (1 ½ hours and 2 hours respectively).

Tarporley is an extremely popular village which has a thriving high street with a range of independent shops and a good range of pubs and restaurants. In 2008 it was ranked third in Britain's Top Ten Perfect Villages. Northwich is a bustling market town with a very attractive conservation area.

The city of Chester is about 13 miles away and offers an excellent range of commercial and retail services, as well as leading schools such as King's, Queen's and Abbeygate College. Another outstanding independent school, The Grange, Hartford, is only about 5 miles away.

There are first rate sports and leisure facilities in the area with Portal Hotel Golf and Spa at Tarporley and Sandiway and Delamere Forest golf courses both nearby. Walking, riding and cycling are well catered for in Delamere Forest and there is sailing at Manley Mere


Gallowsclough Farm is approximately 200 years old and was originally used as a drover's resting point. The house has been sympathetically extended over the years and now provides spacious family accommodation in a wonderful rural setting.

The front door is under a covered porch and opens into a dining hall which has a quarry tiled floor, log burner and brick chimneypiece. Double glass doors lead through to the drawing room which has a inglenook fireplace, original beams and windows along one side of the room which look towards the paddock. The kitchen, to the other side of the dining hall has a range of fitted cupboards, a breakfast bar and oil fired Aga and leads through to a breakfast room and utility area.

The current owner runs a business from home and has two offices which are accessed from the drawing room and the dining hall. The office space overlooks a very attractive pond with fields beyond and this area would be ideal to create a garden room.

Stairs from the drawing room lead up to the first floor and a very
attractive galleried seating area which has a picture window designed to take maximum advantage of the view. There are four bedrooms on this floor and three bath/shower rooms.

The house is approached via a sweeping tree lined driveway running past the paddock and leading to the front of the house and a double garage with workshop off.

The gardens at Gallowsclough Farm are a magnificent feature with a variety of mature trees and shrubs, lawns and two ornamental ponds. There is a particularly pleasant paved entertaining area looking towards the lily pond.

Acreage: 3 Acres
