Full Details

A delightful detached, period cottage with origins dating back to the 17th Century, packed with character and charming features yet sensitively re-modelled for the convenience of modern day living.

Set along the original Tang Lane, now part of Green Lane, this beautiful cottage was originally located in the ancient area of Tang, one of the oldest neighbourhoods in present day Romiley. In 1973, the property was sympathetically extended and redesigned to provide the practical family accommodation on offer today.

Some walls are angled, one or two rooms are irregular in shape and windows are positioned at varying heights! - this all adds to the character this charming cottage offers throughout.


Through the front, you access a small brick porch, ideal for discarding coats and shoes, before entering through a timber panel latched door into the Lounge. A bright triple aspect room with a magnificent brick fireplace and hearth with a cast iron log burner, complimented by polished timber floors and exposed ceiling beams, which really authenticate this home. A large opening takes you into the second dual aspect reception room, current set out as a dining room.

With the extension of the polished floors and beamed ceiling, beyond the living rooms lies a country kitchen, which doesn't disappoint! Fitted with a range of cream cupboards topped by timber work surfaces, enhanced by a ‘Belfast' ceramic sink and a cooking range fitted within a stone fireplace surround. A central breakfast bar provides a perfect space for a lunchtime snack or preparation space for those extended baking days. Aside from there being provision and space for modern appliances, there is room to accommodate seating or a small dining table if required.

To the rear of the cottage is a separate room overlooking the rear garden. Currently used in part as a utility area and study, this is a versatile space, perhaps for use as a winter snug or summer garden lounge.

An ‘L' shaped first floor landing provides access to all bedrooms and the family bathroom. The spacious master bedroom is to the rear. A light, bright three window room with vaulted timber ceiling providing plenty of space for bedroom furniture. Two further bedrooms are situated to the front and there is a centrally positioned family bathroom with a superb freestanding rolltop bath and separate shower cubical.

Accessed from Tang Lane is a driveway allowing parking for at least two cars and leading to a timber garage. The rear and side gardens are easily maintained, being mainly paved with stone walling, raised beds and a raised decking area which leads to a timber shed.


Cobble Cottage can be found on the quiet back water of Green Lane, close to the canal bridge leading to Hatherlow. The property can also be accessed from Urwick Road. A short stroll to Romiley village and you have access to all the local amenities including shops, restaurants, café bars, schools and Romiley train station. You are only minutes from being able to eat out at the popular Spread Eagle and the Duke of York public houses, two of the oldest coaching inns in the area. Most importantly, from your front door, you are on the edge of the Peak Forrest canal and close to Chadkirk country park and woodlands where you can easily escape for endless miles of country walks or cycle rides.
