Knutsford is a prosperous Cheshire market town, located 14 miles south-west of Manchester city centre, forming part of Cheshire’s “golden triangle” - an area of unrivalled affluence in the north of England.

Knutsford has a strong range of high-end, independent retailers and restaurateurs alongside some more aspirational national multiples including OKA (one of only two stores in the north of England), Waterstones, JoJo Maman Bebe, Fat Face, Jaegar, Barbour, Hetherington Newman (only other store is in Holland Park, London), Waitrose, Piccolino, Gusto, Botanist amongst others.

Another indicator for the affluence of Knutsford is that the town features showrooms for both Tesla (one of only three showrooms in the north of England) and Bentley (one of 4 showrooms in the north).
