Holmes Chapel is a charming Cheshire village with a rich history including the old cotton mills, which gave rise to this development's name. Nestled in the Dane Valley, with the River Dane meandering around its northern reaches, the village is perfect for those who love the outdoors. Surrounded by picturesque scenery, The Cottons is the ideal base for walkers, cyclists, horse riders and golfers to enjoy everything the desirable area has to offer.

The village has all the amenities you could need, with a small shopping precinct which hosts a supermarket, general stores, bakery and hardware store. There's a new Aldi store planned for the village, with a proposed opening date of December 2016. And you'll also find a well-stocked library, sports clubs and a number of bars, cafés and restaurants.

Filled with history and character, Holmes Chapel has an impressive array of listed buildings including St Luke's Church (see image right) which is Grade I listed and built in about 1430. The Grade II Twemlow Viaduct to the north-east of the village is a spectacle (see the front cover image) - dated 1841, it was built to span the River Dane and can still be enjoyed today in all its glory.

Holmes Chapel has a close association with the nearby town of Middlewich which hosts an annual folk and boat festival which attracts 400 narrowboats and thousands of visitors each year over three days. Regular farmers markets are also held throughout the year as well as ad hoc events such as the Roman Festival.

Outstanding schooling for all…

If you have children, living at The Cottons means you'll have well-regarded schooling on your doorstep. There is one secondary school, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive School (One Direction's Harry Styles was a student there!), and two primary schools: Holmes Chapel Primary School and Hermitage Primary School. All the schools mentioned have an impressive ‘outstanding' rating by Ofsted.

With its highly sought-after location, excellent schools and handy commuter links The Cottons could be the ideal choice if you're looking for a new home.

About Developer

Charles Church - The Name on the Finest Homes

When Charles and Susanna Church laid the foundations of their first home in 1965, they were doing more than building a desirable residence. They were turning their vision of the perfect home into a benchmark for quality and a legacy for future generations to appreciate.

In the intervening years, Charles Church has grown to establish itself as one of the countrys foremost housebuilding brands whilst maintaining its unrivalled reputation for the design and quality of the homes it builds.

Over four decades later, their principles remain the cornerstone of every home we build. Charles Churchs philosophy of combining aesthetically pleasing designs with traditional building techniques is as relevant today as it was then, and the company prides itself on the sympathetic way in which its homes are designed to harmonise with their surroundings. Wherever possible, many period or regional features are incorporated, including its trademark brick and knapped flint combination, decorative tile hanging and the use of natural stone.

Perhaps best known for its traditional designs, Charles Church has not remained rooted in the past, however, and has evolved to ensure that it continues to meet and exceed the demands of a new generation of homeowners. That is why you will now find an impressive array of Charles Church homes to suit all lifestyles in both rural and city centre locations. Not only does the scope of its developments now encompass traditional design reflecting the prevailing local architecture, but also embraces contemporary and exciting architectural styles and breathes new life into redundant historic and commercial buildings through their sensitive conversion and restoration.

What remains the same, however, is the companys emphasis on exacting standards and attention to detail at every stage of the construction process, enabling it to achieve in its homes a totally unmistakable quality and sense of style. The results of this unique combination of principles have been rewarded with numerous prestigious consumer and industry awards over the years.

The ultimate winner however, is the buyer of a Charles Church home.
