About The Crochet Sanctuary

What is the crochet Sanctuary?

Welcome to The Crochet Sanctuary! What a Sanctuary it truly is, a stunning weekend or day of pure relaxation and crochet galore.  The Crochet Sanctuary is based at Cranage Hall Estate or Cottons Hotel & Spa. 


Cranage Hall

Cranage Hall, the original home of The Crochet Sanctuary is  set on 20 acres of landscaped gardens in the Cheshire countryside, this stately property in an Elizabethan manor 1.2 miles from Holmes Chapel and 6.9 miles from Knutsford. During your stay not only can you indulge in the fine food, yarn and workshops but you'll also get to relax and unwind in comfortable bedrooms, each guest will have their own double room as standard, no sharing, and your own bathroom, so you can starfish to your hearts content, each room includes free wifi, flat-screen TV and tea and coffee making facilities. And of course if you do become all crocheted out, then we also have access to a heated indoor pool, GHD's provided!

Cottons Hotel & Spa

Cottons Hotel & Spa is based in an affluent area with lots to do, just a mile from the hotel is the country town of Knutsford.  Cottons Hotel & Spa is a four star hotel in Cheshire with something for everyone.  The warm furnishings of standard rooms are just a tonic when you want to wind down at the end of the day.  You will be given a complimentary bathrobe and slippers when you arrive, and then you'll be free to use the expansive simming pool, whilrpool, sauna, steam room, outdoor hot tub and solarium.  Power up at the gym or in one of the fitness classes if you're feeling engergetic.  Cottons Hotel & Spa will ensure that all of our events are socially distanced, please see our guide on COVID regulations

Crochet day 

An entire weekend, albeit what everyone would love to do, is not always feasible or easy to justify especially if you are local, or you have commitments at home, so we also offer Crochet days throughout the year.  Crochet days run from 10:00 on Saturday morning until 18:00 in the evening.  Lunch is served in the restaurant (buffet style) so that we can meet all dietary requirements, unlimited snacks and refreshments, including a variety of teas, coffees and locally sourced cordials are included all throughout the day, but more importantly unlimited yarn throughout your stay! *Please note that Crochet days will not include guest designers*
