You don’t have to be a Cheshire Wife to enjoy Cheshire life

If there’s ever been a county that has a vast variety of house prices it’s Cheshire.  From Halton to Alderley Edge, Warrington to Wilmslow, there’s something for everyone.

We have all heard of the Cheshire Wives and their mansions but there are lots of us in lovely locations where property prices aren’t as expensive.

Outside Warrington alongside the Bridgewater Canal our location is close to some lovely Cheshire countryside and villages. We’ve been here for 21 years and it’s been a fab place to bring up our boys.

With the new Mersey Gateway Bridge commuting is easier than ever.  This means it’s now easy access to Liverpool as well as Chester and Manchester, and these transport links are keeping the housing market strong.

Local highlights are:

Walton Hall Gardens, situated amidst 32 acres of parkland and award winning Green Flag gardens and Children’s Zoo.

Daresbury, the birthplace of Lewis Carroll has a museum dedicated to Alice in Wonderland. As depicted in the  stained glass windows of the near 150 year old All Saints Church.

There are a number of nature reserves. Moore village comprises almost 200 acres of woodland, meadows, lakes and ponds. Home to many diverse species of plants, animals, birds and other wildlife. A wonderful area for walks with the family.

The medieval museum of Norton Priory is a haven for children’s activities and wildlife adventures. A very family friendly venue with a stunning walled garden and grounds.

Then for a bit of retail therapy there’s Stockton Heath with shops, restaurants, cafes and canal side pubs.

Wether you want a detached house or an apartment there is such variety you’ll find something in your price range. Even new developments fit in with the environment. One of the smaller Laurus Homes developments is within easy access to all the locations mentioned, and some great primary schools too. Which is often top of the list for family home buyers.

  • Love this Lorraine as I love living in Cheshire. It’s certainly a varied county with so much to do and see. We have been in our house for 17 years, and whilst I would love to live in Frodsham one day, for now I will settle for being only 5 minutes up the road x
