Description - Cobscot Hey was built in 1866 for the Corbet Family of Adderley Hall (demolished in 1955). It was the rectory to St. Peter's Church and the home of Athelstone Corbet, son of Reginald. It passed out of Church hands in 1954 and has been a private residence since.
Cobscot Hey is a stunning, beautifully presented Victorian country house of brick construction under a slate roof, which has been extensively restored to a quite exceptional specification. Great care has been taken to create a relaxed family home offering the ability to entertain with the larger well proportioned reception rooms together with a number of smaller rooms ideally suited to modern day living.
The kitchen/breakfast/family room is very much the heart of the home with a superb range of furniture by Clive Christian. The accommodation is arranged over three floors and a basement and includes features such as shuttered sash windows, pine boarded floors, high ceilings, a fine staircase and Chesney fireplaces.

Proceed past Adderley Village Hall, next left into Rectory Lane, proceed to the T-junction, continue straight on over the disused railway bridge (signed Hawks Moor) and the property is located almost immediately on the right.

Location And Amenities - Cobscot Hey is situated on the edge of the village of Adderley in a secluded location. Adderley forms a small community on the border of Shropshire and Cheshire. There is St. Peter's Church (1635), Primary School and Village Hall with bowling green in the village.
