About the Development
Cheshire offers a lifestyle like no other, with rolling open countryside speckled with sophisticated small towns, with great schools, excellent commuter links and the Peak District National Park right on your doorstep, it’s no surprise that Congleton is one of Cheshire’s most sought after places to live. Which means that the three and four bedroom family homes at Cranberry Gardens, coming soon from Redrow Homes, will sell out fast.
Cranberry Gardens will be located just to the north of the town, within easy reach of both primary and senior schools, and just a short bus ride from the station, with connections to Manchester in just 40 minutes. Make sure you don’t miss out on these much-anticipated new homes in Congleton. Register your interest today and get all the latest updates, plus first refusal on the pick of the plots. Remember, with Help to Buy, you only need 5% deposit to secure your new Congleton home.
AmenitiesThere is an M&S Food and a Tesco Extra store within easy reach of the development, serving both day to day and weekly shopping needs.

DiningTrip Advisor lists no less than 65 restaurants and eateries in the small town, giving you an unrivalled selection to choose from with something for every taste and budget. KingfishR, 26 West Street, Reubens and Purple Pakora all come highly recommended, as do local gastro pubs the Brownlow Inn, The Rising Sun and the Castle Inn.
Sunday lunch at Stock at The Pavillion is the highlight of the week, and conveniently close to home, while Nobanno Lakeside Indian restaurant makes for a romantic evening out.
EducationIn a reversal of the usual pattern, it is older pupils who will have less far to go for school, with Eaton Bank Academy just a short walk from the development. Eaton Bank is rated ‘good with outstanding features’ by Ofsted and is a highly popular school delivering great results. Congleton High School offers an alternative, and is ranked ‘good’ by Ofsted.
Primary pupils have a short school run to either Buglawton Primary, Havannah Primary or St Mary’s Catholic Primary, all just a few minutes drive away and all ranked ‘good’.
Congleton boast excellent leisure facilities, with a nine-hole golf course at Congleton Golf Club, and 18 holes at Astbury Golf Club. Congleton Leisure Centre has top class facilities, including a pool and Astbury Mere offers something different with a wide range of watersports.
Head east for the Peak District, Britain’s first ever National Park, and discover over 550 square miles of stunning landscape to explore, by road, by bike or on foot. Step back in time at the carefully preserved half timber Little Moreton Hall, or reach for the stars at nearby Jodrell Bank, home of the BBC’s Stargazing Live.
For evening entertainment, check out the Daneside Theatre, or take a short drive to Clonter Opera Theatre. Cinemac in nearby Macclesfield is your nearest cinema, showing all the latest releases.
ShoppingJust like the town itself, Congleton shopping blends the best of old and new, with everything from a traditional market, every Tuesday and Saturday at the Bridestones Centre, to the modern Congleton retail Park. There is also an excellent choice of famous names and independent boutiques in the town centre, completing your shopping experience.
If your prefer mall shopping, jump a train to Stoke, for the Potteries, or Macclesfield for the Grosvenor Shopping Centre, or ride into Manchester for the ultimate mix of pedestrianised streets and famous flagship stores in and around the Arndale. Freeport Talke, just 8miles to the south, is also worth a day out for designer labels at discount prices.
