Harrop Fold is a perfect location for anyone wishing to follow the Cheshire Literary & Film Trail, being minutes from the setting of Alan Garner's latest book, Thursbitch, and a short drive from Lyme Park, the film setting for Pride & Prejudice.  The trail is available on a map within the rooms.

Rainow and its area offer a huge selection of things to do and see from exploring the Peaks and Plains of Cheshire to admiring the natural beauty of the Peak District National Park, and   A footpath from the door leads to the Gritstone Trail or one of the many other footpaths that cross over Harrop Fold’s land including a Wild Flower Circular Walk from Bollington.
