Welcome to Jarman Farm, Sutton, Macclesfield

As a working farm, there is lots to see. In addition to the traditional chickens, sheep and young cattle, Jarman Farm is home to a number of privately owned horses. Weekends and summer evenings are a hive of activity, grooming, and schooling in the menage.
Adjoining the site is a well-stocked coarse fishing pond. If you want to try your hand at landing a 20lb carp, Jarman Farm Campsite guests can buy a half-day pass for £4, or a full day for £7. (8am to 8pm in the summer, barbless hooks only, and no keep nets).
For those who want to walk, cycle, or study wild birds, Jarman Farm is on the edge of Macclesfield Forest. This is an area of woodland surrounding three reservoirs and dominated by the Teggs Nose Country Park vantage point.
Amongst the woodland are many trails for walkers and mountain bikers, whilst the reservoirs themselves are home to numerous waterfowl, and in particular the Trentabank Heronry
The campsite at Jarman Farm is an ideal base for exploring east Cheshire, the Peak District, or Macclesfield itself.
The 15th century Gawsworth Hall and its summer season of open-air theatre productions are just a few minutes away.
The radio telescope at Jodrell Bank is just 8 miles from Jarman Farm.
There are several very good Pubs serving food in easy walking distance of the Caravan Site. These include the Kings Head, The Churchouse, The Lamb and the wonderfully restored circa 1500's award winning eatery Sutton Hall whose former owners include the infamous Lord Lucan.
