Brimming with breath taking scenery and dramatic landscapes as well as bustling towns and cities, Cheshire offers something for just about everybody. The active amongst us can enjoy the Cheshire countryside and wildlife on foot, with a hike up to White Nancy; the iconic Grade II listed folly that dominates the Cheshire Plain. Let imaginations run wild with a walk through the legend filled woods of Alderley Edge to Stormy Point, the setting for Alan Garner’s novel The Weirdstone of Brisingamen. Cheshire is full of country parks for you to relax in, wander through wildflower meadows, or simply sit and take in the views as you discover your own retreat.
If you are looking for something a little less energetic, take a leisurely stroll around one of the quaint towns and villages that Cheshire has to offer. Cheshire has many market towns with their independent galleries, wine bars, boutiques and fantastic markets selling delicious Cheshire produce.
The county is also teeming with history and character- Chester itself is one of the best preserved walled Roman cities in the UK, which just over the Welsh border there is an amazing collection of ancient castles. Visit Capesthorne Hall, a filming location for Pride and Prejudice or Tatton Park with its scenic lake and roaming deer.
If pure relaxation is more your thing, Cheshire is home to numerous Spas and Golf resorts. Try Cottons with its outdoor Jacuzzi, Rookery Hall with its dramatic entrance, or Peckforton Castle for a relaxing weekend.
When in Cheshire you are never far from a quaint English pub serving really great ales and traditional pub classics. However, Cheshire is also home to numerous truly great restaurants and bistros. Simon Rimmer from ‘Sunday Brunch’ has two restaurants in both Didsbury and Hale, whilst Simon Radley has Michelin Starred restaurant at The Grosvenor Chester, and nearby Manchester is the UK’s new food hub, outgrowing London with the number of new openings each week.
Whilst maintaining its rural and tranquil setting, Cheshire is also well connected to the rest of the UK. Crewe has the fastest train route to London at only 1.5 hours and soon set to be the home of HS2. Manchester, Chester and Liverpool are also within easy commute times from the quaintest villages and Manchester airport is there to connect to the rest of the world.
