You may not have heard of it, but Cheadle Hulme is an affluent Greater Manchester suburb, which is home to more than 26,000 people. Just eight miles from Manchester City Centre and five miles from Manchester Airport, its quaint village appearance and cosmopolitan vibe make the area popular with families, downsizers and young professionals alike – with those working in the city able to reach Manchester Piccadilly in 16 minutes by train or the airport in 15 minutes by car.
The village centre has a variety of independent shops, florists and coffee shops – with Platform 5 next to the train station a great place to go for a quick coffee and light bite on the way to work. There is also a large Waitrose and a superb mix of restaurants and pubs. The John Millington, a pub and restaurant transformed from a beautiful historic Grade II listed hall, is ideal for enjoying a glass of wine with its cosy intimate areas and quaint period features. Lovers of craft beer usually head to The Chiverton Tap, a new pub opened by local residents passionate about their beer. And there’s the always lively Gusto where locals go to enjoy a cocktail or sample their signature Deli Board.
For entertainment, Cheadle Hulme has a thriving amateur theatre scene with two theatres, the Players Theatre and Chads Theatre. And for sport and leisure, residents are spoilt for choice. There’s Ladybridge Park Residents Sports and Social Club; Old Meadow Park on Station Road where regular community events are held; Cheadle Hulme Sports Centre; and two prestigious golf courses, Cheadle Golf Club, which is the second oldest golf club in Cheshire, and Bramall Park Golf Club. Close by is Bramall Hall, a Grade I listed Tudor manor house situated in 70 acres of stunning parkland featuring lakes, woodland and gardens – all open to the public.
If you have children, Cheadle Hulme has excellent schools with the independent Cheadle Hulme School, where former BBC Political Editor Nick Robinson was educated, the pick of the bunch.
With 17% rental growth predicted in Manchester over next five years (Savills), strong tenant demand and high rental yields (in excess of 5%) are attracting both UK and overseas investors. The city is also a focus for Chinese investors – Beijing Engineering Construction Group are investing £800 million in Manchester’s Airport City development, less than five miles from Cheadle Hulme. Already a top European city for business location, the Government’s Northern Powerhouse agenda promoting growth and regeneration outside London will further enhance Greater Manchester’s appeal and growth prospects.
