Broomedge Farm holiday cottages are luxurious and well-appointed holiday rental cottages. Located on a quiet farm near Lymm in the Cheshire countryside, between Manchester and Liverpool.

Broomedge Farm Cottages make the perfect holiday cottage or holiday rental for anyone exploring the Northwest.
Less than 10 minutes from the motorway network yet in a peaceful location, they are only half an hour from Manchester centre and Salford Quays, and about 45 minutes from Chester and Liverpool. Manchester and Liverpool airports are easily accessible.

The cottages have been made out of an 18th century dairy parlour and have been finished to an exceptionally high standard, making them a very comfortable place to stay. Many of the original features have been kept, such as the beams and the windows. The high roof gives a wonderful feeling of space.

The cottages are laid out in an attractive open-plan style, with separate lounge, dining and kitchen areas - making them feel cosy yet spacious. Overall, they are quietly understated - the use of wooden floors throughout, together with sumptuous soft furnishings and flexible lighting gives a feeling of Scandinavian themes mixed with traditional rural architecture. The bathrooms are fully fitted, with power shower, bath and heated towel rail.

Each cottage has the following features and facilities -

  • Original beams and windows
  • Double-glazed throughout
