About us

A family run business.

4 Generations In The Making and 60 years experience, the Cowap’s passion lies in sourcing excellent food, providing the best customer service and luxurious accommodation and experiences throughout every aspect of the business.

Our 5 bedroom  boutique hotel is situated on Tarporley High Street, Phil and Ed are the brothers that drive and progress the business forward. After the success of their Highland Hotel in Scotland – Muckrach, Phil and Ed decided that a hotel nearer to home would be an exciting new venture for them. Just down the road, the family runs The Hollies Farm Shop. An award winning farm shop located in the heart of the Cheshire countryside including; 2 Farm Shops, 2 coffee shops and a Deli Bar, a Delicatessen, 2 Butcheries, 2 Gift Barns and five 5-star  luxury self-catering lodges with hot tubs.


Back in 1959 is when the Cowap’s first began business as farmers selling vegetables on the side of the road to passers by with nothing but an honesty box. 60 years later, The Hollies Farm Shop has grown to be a multi award winning business and one of the most recognised in the North West. Phil and Ed felt as though Tarporley High Street was the perfect location to open a boutique hotel, as they both went to school and grew up in Tarporley it was close to their heart’s and a familiar area. So when the old HSBC bank came up for sale in Tarporley, Ed and Phil just couldn’t resist.


Brothers Phil and Ed put their interior design ideas together, influenced by their favourite restaurants, bars and boutique hotels around the world and, of course, Tarporley itself to create 32 by The Hollies.
