Formerly the country seat of the Armistead family, De Vere Cranage Estate Hotel is still very much a rural retreat today, tucked away in a peaceful corner of Cheshire. Designed by celebrated British architect Lewis Wyatt, red brick, warm yellow sandstone, and pretty green lawns wait to greet you at this Grade II listed building. Here 21st-century style complements the rich heritage of the building; creating an eclectic mix of historic and new, where we will enjoy contemporary dining.
