The larger settlement of Marple is nearby and just beyond is Stockport, both offering a wider range of facilities and amenities.

Given the close proximity to the A6, there are quick links to the Manchester Eastern Link Road and the M60. Alternatively, the A6 is a perfect link into the Peak District with large areas of AONB’s and leisure drives and outriding.

There are railway stations at Middlewood and Marple, both providing connections to Manchester and further afield.
There are a number of state and private schools within the area. High Lane and Marple offer both primary and secondary schools.
Higher Fold Farm has been run as a livery yard in recent years. The vendors report that the occupation rates were excellent and there has always been keen interest in the use of the indoor arena.

Higher Fold Farm is located just off the Windlehurst road, linking High Lane and Marple. From the roadway a sweeping driveway takes you to the secured access to the property. Beyond the gateway is a large parking and turning area with the equestrian buildings surrounding.
The dwelling is built of brick under a slate roof, whilst most of the elevations have been rendered. From the main entrance, there is a boot room leading to a good-sized hallway, which has fitted cupboards and a downstairs WC adjacent.
