About the local area

Middlewich is a small town with a long history in the heart of the county of Cheshire. It is known for its scenic heritage waterways and colourful canal boats. Many stately homes and gardens are near. The big cities of Manchester and Liverpool are easily accessible. Historic Chester, one of the most visited places in England, is 30 minutes away. You will find a 900 year-old cathedral, medieval timbered buildings, Roman amphitheatre, and complete city walls. Both Chester and nearby Nantwich have very good eating, shopping and attractions.

Chester, County Capital – Here is a busy city which is not too big but has plenty of interest from beautiful cathedral, architecture and its famous city walls to shops, cafes, museums, restaurants  and even a traditional Town Crier to shout out his announcements.

Nantwich is fairly small but has room for a large and beautiful church, a local museum, a bustling market and many public activities. And a visit to Snugbury’s Dairy Farm for their home-made ice-cream is popular all year round.

Cheshire Waterways – This area is known for its scenic rivers, canals and narrowboats. We are a two-minute walk away from interesting and historic waterside walks. The famous Anderton Boat Lift can also be visited and this is where boats are raised and lowered between river and canal – amazing heritage engineering. Maybe we can board one of these tiny houseboats or chat to the boaters.
