Location And Amenities - Hankelow Manor is situated in Hankelow about 5 miles south of Nantwich. Nantwich has a choice of shopping facilities, social amenities and schools, as well as sporting facilities. Hankelow is a charming hamlet with a chapel, the award wining White Lion pub/restaurant and duck pond. Brookfield golf course is close to the property. Audlem village centre is 1.5 miles. It is an attractive country village and provides a number of local shops including post office, chemist, butchers, local Co-operative store, and newsagents, health centre, modern primary school, two cafe's, three public houses and a wide variety of community activities.

Description - Hankelow Manor probably dates from the late 18th Century and is built of red Flemish bound brick with black headers under a hipped slate roof. The attached cottage was added in the late 19th Century. A gravelled carriage drive leads to the imposing entrance. Internally, the splendidly proportion rooms are notable for their sash windows (some with original shutters), ceiling cornices and oak floor boards. The extensive and extremely adaptable accommodation has been well maintained over the years but would benefit from a general scheme of modernisation.
