Situated at the foot of the Peak District, Mellor has for centuries provided an ideal location for the ever changing residents who have occupied this area. Today we have the ideal location to provide Mellor Country House guests with a picturesque and relaxing environment away from the pressures of city life.
Predominantly a ribbon development, the village starts at the bottom of a valley in Longhurst Lane and extends for 3 miles. The road winds up a hill becoming Moor End Road where most of the older part of the village is situated.
The Church of St Thomas 's dominates the hill overlooking the village and surrounding countryside.
The residents of Mellor village take an active part in fundraising not only for the House but a lot of related charities. In March an annual walk around the boundaries raises money for various charities including Cancer Research. This is well supported as the countryside around Mellor is magnificent.
Hare and Hounds pub at Mill Brow have supported Mellor Country house over the past few years, and is well worth a visit.
Royal Oak in Mellor also a great supporter of our Open Day and events on our doorstep, and many of our visitors have enjoyed a good meal in a lovely setting, very well recommended.
Midland Hotel in Marple Bridge has donated table and chairs to support us with the refurbishment of the dining room, a quaint village to visit and experience
