Dive in and start practising your back stroke and you can fully appreciate the twinkling starlit LED suspended ceiling. There is underwater lighting, underfloor heating and a duo of waterfalls that bring the relaxing sound of running water into this most impressive space. For the ultimate health spa relaxation experience, hop into the hot tub and then choose the sauna or steam room, or both, located next to the pool to sweat out the stress.
And imagine the pool parties this room could host, with three sets of double doors opening out onto a huge garden terrace. The party pad facilities continue with a luxury bespoke bar in the room next door hand built by high end furniture company Clive Christian. Complete with a range of optics, wine cooler and an abundance of built-in shelves, this is the place for party guests to pick up their cocktail before enjoying the leisure complex or wandering around the three acres of land.
Charlie Kannreuther, head of residential at Savills in Cheshire, comments: “Croeshowell Hall is a wonderfully impressive house and which truly comes into its own when the owners are entertaining. Grand reception rooms give way to some fantastic leisure facilities including a spectacular swimming pool and an entertaining room with a huge solid oak cocktail bar.”

Dating from the 18th century, Croeshowell Hall is an elegant, Regency-style country mansion that greets you with a fresh, white-washed façade, period multi-paned windows and portico columned entrance. As all good country manors should be able to boast, Croeshowell Hall is approached through electric wrought iron gates then down a sweeping gravel drive which leads to a parking and turning area beneath the south east front.
Within a courtyard to the side of the property is a detached building containing a most impressive leisure complex which is fully alarmed with intercom system, telephone line, broadband connection, flat screen televisions, sound system, mood lighting, underfloor heating and pressurised hot water and that’s just the start of the impressive features.
The bar is the hub of the partying within this impressive leisure building, with the solid oak bar by Clive Christian incorporating built-in shelving, wine coolers, dishwasher and sink. The room has a huge wall of glass that floods the space with light and views, and bifold doors that provide seamless access outside so the party can spill out to the garden, hopefully without spilling any drinks. Once outside party-goers can enjoy the views from the elevated terrace and food from the BBQ area.
The indoor heated pool is five-star hotel standard, with luxury additions including waterfalls and a hot tub in the corner. There are three sets of French doors that means the pool party can spill out into the garden.
Come the evening and the pool room can offer an enchanting ambience with the LED lights within the suspended ceiling making it feel like your are swimming under the stars with no chance of getting wet or cold or bitten by bugs.
Welcome to the steam room, accessed directly from the pool side, where there is also a handy shower to wash away the sweat before you dive back into the pool.
There’s a sauna next to the pool too, completing the impressive spa facilities that surely are visited regularly and is the place to party with friends or relax in peaceful solitude.
The arcade games room is found off the hallway, which has oak flooring, French doors to the garden and internal bifolding doors opening into the swimming pool area. Off the arcade games room is a changing room with fitted units, sink and drainer.
The gym is a good size to accommodate a variety of machines and weights, with mirrored walls and oak flooring plus an ensuite cloakroom.
But the fun isn’t done in the leisure suite because on the first floor there’s a home cinema waiting for you to arrive with the popcorn and choose your movie.
There’s a games room on the first floor of the leisure suite too, which could easily be used as extra accommodation if required.
Every country manor deserves an impressive entrance hall to set the tone as soon as a guest arrives, and Croeshowell Hall can certainly provide that thanks to the remaining period features – sweeping cantilevered staircase, wall panelling, cornicing, panelled internal doors and visually warming wooden floor.
The formal dining room is so spacious it can easily accommodate a baby grand piano, as well as impressing dinner guests with yummy period features and added charm, including a decorative cast iron fireplace on a slate hearth beneath a marble surround, hand painted cornice and parquet floor which can easily distract them from their food.
The spectacular kitchen is by Clive Christian and includes bevelled slate work surfaces which is replicated in the adjoining utility room, and the central island unit has an oak work surface with integrated breakfast bar. Appliances include a four oven electric Aga with two hot plates and an electric hob, Villeroy & Boch twin ceramic sinks, Quooker style boiling hot water tap, Meile oven and dishwasher and Amtico floor which extends into the utility room. Within the utility room are twin fridge freezer units, a wine cooler, ceramic sinks, an additional dishwasher and plumbing for two washing machines. Below the kitchen is a cellar and beyond the kitchen is a cloakroom and a spacious and quiet study.
The drawing room is an elegant and sophisticated space, featuring a marble fireplace as a home for a multi-fuel Aga stove, panelled walls, decorative cornice and window shutters.
Behind the inner hall to the rear of the property is a beautifully fitted orangery which has oak flooring, French windows to the garden and wood burning stove – what a special spot to sit and relax, whatever the weather, and watch the seasons change and the wildlife wander around the garden.
The family room is a warm and inviting space for watching the match, listening to music and chatting with friends.
The principal bedroom is so vast even a large four-poster bed and massive dressing table structure, both by Clive Christian furniture, can easily be welcomed with lots of room left to spare.
The principal bedroom’s dressing room, covered in bespoke oak wardrobes and storage created again by Clive Christian furniture, is larger than most people’s main bedrooms.
The principal bedroom’s ensuite boasts more luxury with a marble lined shower with body jets, twin hand basins, and a sunken bath with marble surround that can offer two views of the grounds from the bubbles.
More oak to find in the bespoke family bathroom.
There are five bedrooms inside the manor house at the moment, but if a sixth were required the principal bedroom’s dressing room could be sacrificed or downstairs there are two studies that could offer flexible sleeping accommodation.
The property includes a one-bed annexe – ideal for multi-generational living, guests or even used as staff accommodation such as a nanny, should the new owner come with an entourage.
It’s compact in the annexe – with a living room with integrated kitchen and an ensuite bedroom but all beautifully done.
Plenty of places to sit and socialise or find peace, from house hugging patios to elevated terraces to the summerhouse.
Formal walled garden is a beautiful feature of the property, connecting back to the days when it was a ‘must-have’ for any well-respected country pad.
The manor house has private, mature gardens that surround it and include a mini woodland and a vast lawned area, smaller than it once was as a country estate but large enough to definitely justify a ride-on mower.
