Attraction Information

This tourist attraction is based around Edwardian stables dating back to 1896, with a beautiful central cobbled courtyard.  It’s now home to numerous small independent shops selling everything from Yankee Candles, Mexican silver jewellery and Pip Studio china to golf wear, artisan gifts, cupcakes, greeting cards, children’s clothes and traditional sweets to name a few!

Stroll around the village, which is also home to a small garden nursery, an upmarket pet shop, an aquatics centre, fashionable lady’s boutiques, furniture shops and huge antique emporiums.

But if shopping isn’t your thing then enjoy one of our many activities!  Blakemere offers a gem of fantastic outdoor and indoor activities for all ages – there’s archery, Segway, crazy golf, a play barn and low ropes, pottery painting, glass blazing, card making, micro-brewery tours and more.  So, there’s no excuse not to enjoy some great new experiences, whatever your age!

Choose to visit one of our many events organised throughout the year at Blakemere from family events such as an Easter Bunny Trail, a Countryside Fair and a Zombie Pirate Treasure Trail to adult only events like our Gin & Prosecco Festivals.  And at Christmas, do something really special and book tickets for Blakemere’s Christmas Woodland where lively festive characters entertain you and lead you on a magical journey through real Cheshire woodland in search of Father Christmas. Or book to have Breakfast or a Banquet with Santa, just visit our website for more details.

There are many stories that Edward VII, when he was Prince of Wales, stayed at Blakemere when hunting locally.  It was Edward VII who introduced the practice of eating roast beef and potatoes with horseradish sauce and Yorkshire pudding on Sundays, a meal that remains a staple British favourite today.  Maybe that’s why The Village Restaurant & Coffee Bar on Blakemere are so famous for their Sunday Carvery, it’s popular too for its great selection of breakfasts, snacks, lunches and fabulous afternoon teas. We also have a gorgeous Tea Room serving a selection of teas, coffees and cakes in Pip Studio china, located within the courtyard itself.

Nestled between woodland and a small copse on Blakemere Village is a tranquil and relaxing touring park where you can continue your brilliant adventure and stay on hardstanding fully services pitches or camp in a meadow.  Enjoy luxurious showers and toilets, family and disabled shower rooms, plus a small laundry room with both a washer and dryer, there’s also a small shop stocking the basics and a few essentials and a Den with free Wi-Fi to keep in touch with the outside world!  Why not stay with us and enjoy all of the delights of Blakemere such as a falconry experience, or be a brewer for the day on our micro-brewery, or pamper yourself in our beauty salon and hairdressers after a couple of hours of shopping around the village.

Come and enjoy 24 hours at Blakemere, there’s so much to do, we think you’ll need to stay longer.

Organised events

When an event is organised Blakemere will try its upmost to make sure that plenty of easy access is provided and the designated area of the event is free from obstacles with plenty of room to manoeuvre whether it is in a marquee, a field event or within the cobbled courtyard. Please note that field events can make the ground less stable and flat and therefore care should be taken when entering. If the ground becomes too unstable or difficult to pass through then every attempt will be made to provide a floor covering to help with the conditions.
