Thornley Groves - Altrincham

16-18 Lloyd Street, Altrincham, WA14 2DE

Enjoying over 15 years' experience in Estate Agency and recently celebrating 14 years of working for the company. My name is Douglas Plant and I am the Branch Manager of our Altrincham office; proud to offer a comprehensive, energetic and enthusiastic service in relation to property Sales and Lettings. I am fiercely proud to be an independent Estate Agent as are my team of property professionals.

My family were born and bred in Altrincham and Hale, along with my wife Lauren, who is also part of the TG family. My 3yr old daughter Isabelle attends pre-school in Timperley and I look forward to her maturing and growing up in such a safe and friendly area with excellent schools. With an International airport on our doorstep I also look forward, with a little anxiety, about taking her on her first flight overseas.

My team benefits from a perfect combination of qualified and experienced people who have worked together for a number of years. Lori McPherson, Assistant Manager, was promoted from the vibrant city centre market and prides herself on her ability to meet both her vendors and buyers requirements, Tracey Bentham, Sales Manager, has been working for Thornley Groves for over 20 years and has a wealth of experience that is second to none. Colette Raftery and Charlotte Murray are highly motivated sales consultants that are full of enthusiasm and love nothing more than agreeing sales, and providing superb customer service.

Altrincham itself is a diverse market town with property prices ranging from £100,000 to £2 million. The area has always proved to be a popular and attractive location due to its well renowned schools, both state and private for all age groups along with excellent commuter links including motorways, Manchester International airport and the Metrolink network. The town centre provides a variety of restaurants, coffee bars, designer boutiques and high street retailers, and a visit to the recently refurbished 19th Century Market Hall is highly recommended to experience a selection of locally produced food and drink!

Thornley Groves Altrincham Branch is also directly linked with our Hale Branch providing the benefit of two markets as well as ensuring that no opportunity will be missed or overlooked to secure a sale or letting. You can visit our office's 7 days a week 8:30am until 6pm most days or pop in on our late night on a Wednesday (in the Summer months only) until 8pm to meet the team and discuss your next move. We look forward to meeting you and for a personal, no obligation chat about your requirements please do give us a call.


Thank you for visiting the Thornley Groves Lettings page, my name is Rachel Plowman and I am the Lettings Manager for our Altrincham and Hale branches. I have worked in this Lettings Department for five years and I have an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of the Lettings process. I am your personal point of contact when you are looking to rent out your property in this area or indeed any of the periphery locations in Cheshire. Managing three Lettings Consultants and a Lettings Administrator over the two offices, we work in a close, growing and successful team. Whether we are working with Investors, regular Landlord's that we have built good relationships with or home owners who are looking to move, our team can help you achieve the most for your investment whilst ensuring we find the most appropriate Tenant for the property. Collectively our Altrincham and Hale branches remain market leaders within the area, providing a wide range of properties from £300pcm - £15,000pcm. Most people who move to Hale fall in love with the vibrant village atmosphere enhanced by the fashionable wine bars and eateries including many upmarket restaurants, boutique shops and independently run bakers, butchers and delicatessens. Whilst Altrincham is an extremely popular, convenient and well established market town and is enjoying somewhat of a renaissance. Both Hale and Altrincham are desirable places to live within the South Manchester area, they are home to nationally renowned outstanding local schools and great transport links into Manchester City Centre, Manchester Airport and Chester.

The rental market is benefitting from an all-time high demand for properties to rent in this area with rents increasing rapidly throughout this popular suburb. To ensure the best possible rentals and tenants are secured for our Landlords we often carry out open houses as well as being open for viewings 7 days a week, providing considerable added value to the process.

Thornley Groves is an award winning estate agent that is open seven days a week, with late night opening on a Wednesday until 9pm (in the Summer months only) and out of hours accompanied viewings at a time to suit the viewer. I would be delighted to discuss the rental value of your property and the variety of services that we have to offer so please feel free to call me or email me at.



My name is Keeley Child and I am the Director for our two, well established and vibrant, Property Management Departments in the City Centre and South Manchester. Following my studies at Alderley Edge School for Girls I was keen to get stuck into working life. Having always had a passion for property and a love of people, property management is the perfect fit for me, I haven't looked back since! 12 years of experience within this industry has given me a comprehensive insight into all aspects of Property Management. I am supported by Lucy Davies, who is our Department Manager for our South Manchester Property Management Department (also covering North Manchester). Lucy has come from our busy City Centre Property Management department and knows all to well how to handle a well established Property Management Team.
