    Local information

    • Noonstones enjoys a spectacular elevated setting on the western side of Bosley Cloud with far reaching westerly views over the Cheshire Plain. Timbersbrook is a pretty stone built village, surrounded by beautiful countryside and situated on the ‘Gritstone Trail', a well-known local walk. The Macclesfield Canal below Bosley Cloud has a tow path providing a pleasant walking/cycling route and extends to the major canal networks. The market town of Congleton, in the foothills of the Peak District, is a small, thriving old textile town straddling the river Dane and serves a large rural community. It has a comprehensive range of shopping, recreational and commercial facilities and is well placed for access to Macclesfield, Wilmslow and Manchester. Junction 17 on the M6 is about 9 miles away and provides convenient access to The Potteries and to the commercial and industrial centres of the North West. There are local primary and secondary schools in Congleton and private schools in Macclesfield and South Manchester, many of which provide coach services locally.
    • Built circa 1805, Noonstone is a substantial and impressive country residence in a commanding, elevated setting within nearly 2.3 acres of garden and paddock plus a second paddock rented on an annual basis from the National Trust of almost an acre. The property has a colourful history, having been a wayside inn during the 19th century until losing its license in 1897. In the 1920's it became a Gentleman's Residence and it is apparent this re-incarnation was carried out with little regard to cost. Canadian oak floors, staircase and balustrade, internal doors and fitted cupboards were installed and the rooms configured for entertaining on a lavish scale including a 43' reception hall, a 34' drawing room and a billiards room. The design ensured the principal rooms took full advantage of the breathtaking sunsets and extensive views.
