Mellor Country House
Mellor Country House is a UK charity, built in 1907, set in three acres of garden and woodland located in the pretty village of Mellor. The charity is dedicated to providing respite breaks for groups, families, carers and individuals primarily from the nearby urban areas who could not, otherwise, have a break at all. The Charity’s aim is to make a difference by providing a safe, secure, relaxing and uplifting environment for the financially and socially disadvantaged. For many of the people who stay at the house, this break from the hardships of their day-to-day existence can be their only holiday and, literally, be a life-saver.
