Little Bollington is a small village in north Cheshire, just outside the southern edge of the Manchester conurbation. The village is located at the northern tip of the area governed by Cheshire East Council
The village is in a very attractive rural setting. It lies within the National Trust Estate, which is a large area of farmland centred around Dunham Massey Hall and Park, a major visitor attraction. The Bridgewater Canal runs along the edge of the village and passes over the River Bollin. There are numerous public footpaths and the area is included in several Cheshire walking guidebooks.
