This independent 3 star commended guest house is based in a 150 year old farmhouse in a countryside setting near Manchester Airport. Great if you want to stay somewhere with a bit of character, instead of your average modern airport hotel. There aren’t any reviews of Rylands Farm on the internet at the moment, so we can’t give you a guest rating yet. Sorry! (March 2010.)
Address: Altrincham Road, Wilmslow, Cheshire, SK9 4LT.
Phone: 01625 535646
The guest house is near the village of Wilmslow, about 10 minutes’ drive from Manchester Airport. The farm has views of the surrounding countryside and there are restaurants nearby.
There’s free parking at the farm for residents and long term parking is available for a charge. It costs £25 for 1 week and £40 for 2 weeks. Any further weeks are £12.
Check-in/out and breakfast
You can check in from 2 pm and check out by 10.30 am. A Full English breakfast is served between 7 am and 9 am during the week or 8 am to 10 am on weekends. If you’ve got to leave earlier than that for your flight (poor you!) just let the owners know and they’ll supply you with a Continental breakfast.
They provide courtesy travel to and from the airport, depending on the time of your flight. We’d advise you to check if they’ll be able to pick you up when you’re booking your room. Generally, the service is available between 7 am (8 am on weekends and Bank Holidays) and 8.30 pm. If they can’t take you, a taxi will cost about £8.
The accommodation is in a 150 year old farmhouse with wooden beams and rustic décor. The owners have some pet rabbits, which are always a hit with the kids. Guests can make use of the Honesty Bar and the sunny conservatory. Evening meals are served on weekdays, and also at the weekends by special arrangement.
Every bedroom has its own front door, so you can step right out into the Cheshire countryside. There are 7 twin or double rooms and 2 family rooms. They’re all en suite and have a TV and tea and coffee making facilities. You can borrow an alarm clock or hairdryer if necessary.
Unfortunately there aren’t any facilities for disabled guests here.
To get here by car, exit the M6 at Junction 20 and the M56 and Junction 6. You will find the guest house on the A538 towards Wilmslow. The nearest train station is at Manchester Airport.
Rylands Farm has views of the airport from rooms 2 and 3 and from the grounds.
