The Chantry

The Chantry is tucked away in the quiet backwater of Sandbach Heath, one of Cheshire’s best kept secrets of tranquil, rural living.

Only 15 minutes south of the county’s exorbitant “Golden Triangle”, the affordable area around Sandbach Heath boasts mile after mile of gently undulating meadows, leafy lanes and woodlands, with glorious views out to Mow Cop and the Peak District National Park. As the song goes, “On a clear day you can see forever” which is possibly why this part of Cheshire is home to the famous Jodrell Bank observatory.

Served by Cheshire East Council, Sandbach Heath is anything but remote for commuters. The Chantry is on the doorstep of Britain’s longest M6 motorway, accessed at Junction 17. You can easily reach Manchester or Chester in around half an hour.

In the 18th and 19th Centuries, Sandbach was a major staging post along routes to London, Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool. The mode and speed of travel may have changed, but this central location is still as accessible.

The heritage town of Sandbach is nearby and offers its own railway station, linking up to the main line at Crewe, with fast access to Glasgow, London, Chester, North Wales, Manchester, Derby and Shrewsbury. The network also takes you easily to Holyhead Ferry Port and to the various international airports at Manchester, Birmingham, Blackpool and Liverpool John Lennon.

Wherever life takes you, coming home to Sandbach Heath is the most breathable, spacious experience. Hardly a traffic light interrupts your meandering drive home through gently rolling countryside.

Local Information

Leisure Facilities

Sandbach offers a nearby market town with its 16th Century cobbled square hosting colourful stalls, craft fairs and community activities, central to a tempting choice of specialist shops. A modern library faces the square where there is ample car parking within the one-way system. You also have a choice of three local supermarkets, the largest in Congleton town centre. Excellent care is integrated into this affluent community, with doctors, vets, nursery schools and elegant care homes proudly available, with several new establishments enhancing the spirit of progress with style.

Dingle Wood in Sandbach is a delightful day out. Nestling on the banks of Arclid Brook, the wildlife reserve has a new wooden footbridge, a favourite with anyone who loves to play Pooh sticks.

A glorious remnant of the area’s salt-mining heritage are the eleven Sandbach flashes.

These picturesque waterscapes teem with waders and wild birds after whose recent sightings we have named our three home styles at The Chantry.

A highly acclaimed jaunt is to The Swettenham Arms nestling behind the 13th Century parish church in the tiny village of Swettenham. Revel in the fragrance of their lavender garden, partake of sumptuous homecooked food, and just maybe you’ll glimpse their ghost, said to have been a resident at the Nunnery which was the pub’s former incarnation in ancient days.

You will never be short of family adventures, making memories at Astbury Mere Country Park with its scenic lake and trails, or exploring over 2,500 kilometres of stone trails in the Peak District National Park, including traversing the traditional salt routes. Visit Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire’s famous ‘crooked house’ with its moat and half-timbered charm. Also Mow Cop castle folly, some 335m above sea level, affords you spectacular views across the Cheshire and Staffordshire landscape, if you can brave ‘the killer mile’ climb!

For walkers and cyclists, there are local, scenic routes nearby, covering anything from a leisurely 6km dog stroll to a strenuous 64km hike. Little wonder that the population here is healthier than the national average.


Sandbach Heath is served by its own charming primary school, just two minutes’ walk from The Chantry. There are three top rated schools: Sandbach High School and Sixth Form College, Holmes Chapel Comprehensive, and Alsager School. You also have a choice of private and free schools including Sandbach School for boys, established in 1677, Cransley School on the Belmont Hall estate, Terra Nova in Holmes chapel and The Ryleys in Alderley Edge, all within comfortable striking distance.
