Local Attractions

Given Stoneyfold Park’s location in the historic village of Bosley, Cheshire, visitors and residents are ideally placed to explore everything that this part of the North West has to offer. From the energetic to the sedate, from the town to the countryside, from the historic to the contemporary, there is something for everyone within easy reach of Stoneyfold.

We are located on the A523, three miles from Macclesfield. This allows easy access to the golf courses of Macclesfield, Prestbury, and the five star courses at Mottram Hall and Shrigley Hall. For those wishing to travel further afield, there is a nine hole course and driving range at Adlington, approximately eight miles away.

A visit to this part of the world would be incomplete without a trip to the Peak District National Park, the first and for many the most appealing of our National Parks. For the more energetic, a day long walk to the famous Kinder Scout is a must, whereas those who prefer a gentle stroll can enjoy many of the paths that wind their way through Macclesfield Forest.

Nearby Bosley Reservoir is a popular location with dedicated birders, as is Macclesfield Forest, where a number of herons have resided for many years.

The coarse angler is also well catered for at the reservoir, and at Thomas Telford’s Macclesfield Canal, which runs through Bosley. For the fly fisherman, you are but a stone’s throw from the historically important Dove and Wye, the latter running through the centre of Bakewell where large trout can be easily observed in the crystal clear water.

If you like to browse the shops, Macclesfield, the famous town whose fortune was made through the silk trade, is only five minutes drive away. The quaint villages of Bakewell, Hope and Castleton nestling in the heart of the Peak District, boast a range of modern and traditional shops, and are all within easy access of Stoneyfold Caravan Park.

It would not be possible to describe the joys of rural Cheshire without mentioning the traditional pub. The traditional pub, serving cask ales in front of roaring fires is rapidly disappearing from the much of the country. However, you have no fear of remaining parched for too long in this part of Cheshire. Within a five mile radius of Stoneyfold, there are some fantastic, award-winning pubs serving real ale and excellent food made with local produce. We can recommend The Fool’s Nook in Sutton, The Leather’s Smithy in Langley, The Crag in Wildboarclough, The Ryles Arms in Higher Sutton and the Ship Inn in Wincle.
