Live the high life in Cheshire’s villages


With high-end boutiques, swanky eateries and millionaire footballers, Cheshire’s ‘Golden Triangle’ brings exclusive city treats to the countryside.

Cheshire is home to an exclusive cluster of villages and pretty market towns known locally as the ‘Golden Triangle’ thanks to vast mansions, luxury hangouts and multi-millionaire residents. Set against some of the county’s finest rolling countryside, you'll find a decadent fusion of city treats and rural charms.

Celebrity Tours run from the exclusive village of Alderley Edge, known as the champagne capital of Britain owing to its famous residents, which have included footballers Dwight Yorke, Rio Ferdinand, and David and Victoria Beckham. Seven minutes' drive north is leafy Wilmslow, a shoppers’ paradise of independent boutiques and luxury brands. Another popular celebrity hangout is the quaint village Mottram St Andrew, while Withinlee Road, Prestbury is Northern England’s most expensive street. Alderley Edge (6 miles/10km northwest of Macclesfield and 15 miles/24km south of Manchester) is 3 hours and 20 minutes' drive from London or 55 minutes by plane to Manchester.
