A Stay at Pickmere Country House

Pickmere Country House

We stayed at the Country House while attending a conference in Manchester. This was a great venue, it is close enough to the city to make an easy commute, and is in the picturesque countryside. It is indeed the best of both worlds.

On our arrival we were given a warm welcome, and quickly shown to our room. The room in the annex was comfortable, clean, and easy to access. The shower had plenty of hot water, and the bed while firm, was still very comfortable.

Garden Annex

There is a well tended garden, and there are tables and a patio area from which to enjoy it.

Garden View

The breakfast was first rate. The food was fresh, and local eggs and sausages were on the menu. The honey on offer was from a local bee-keeper and was raw and very good indeed. There was a wide range of cereals and fresh and dried fruits as well.

the hotel also offers evening meals, and has a fully licenced bar.  There is also a nearby pub, and several restaurants are available in adjoining villages.

The staff were wonderful, and really seemed they wanted to please. They went out of their way to provide for our needs, and even at breakfast weren’t prepared for us to leave the table wanting for anything.

Annex Room

This was a great country retreat, even while visiting a big city. It is really a first choice destination.
