Living in Cheshire

Cheshire is home to beautiful landscapes and rich history. With quaint towns and villages and an endless list of things to do, it’s no wonder it’s one of the most desirable places to live in the country. Here’s why we think Cheshire could be your new place to call home.

The Northern Powerhouse Strategy

There are ambitious plans to make Manchester the second biggest city in the UK. These plans include connecting all of the Northern cities, towns and rural areas together to make everywhere easily accessible, and Cheshire is included. Cheshire homeowners now enjoy increased investment in the area, a business boom, a fantastic school system and excellent transport links.

Living in Cheshire means you’re just a short commuting distance from Manchester, Liverpool and Chester and you can get to London in less than 2 hours from Crewe station. This makes it a great location for those who work in the city but want to live somewhere a little quieter.

An endless list of things to do

Whether you’re looking for family activities or something to keep you occupied on a Sunday afternoon, Cheshire is well known for being a great day out.

In our new Brook View development you’ll be situated on the border between Wincham and Northwich, here’s some of the things you can do, see and visit nearby.

For those who like retail therapy, there’s Barons Quay Shopping Centre, a leisure and retail hub where you can shop, eat, drink and relax. There’s Sticky Paws, a family dining experience you can enjoy with the kids and a cinema for a rainy day.

If you like the great outdoors, there’s Delamere Forest offering a shady oasis. There are easy-going trails for all walking abilities and places to hike and take in Liverpool’s famous skyline. There are cycling and running trails and their famous Gruffalo sculpture for the children to enjoy.

To the north of Northwich is Marbury Country Park, where you can take in the glorious views over the water to the church at Great Budworth. You can also explore the arboretum and community orchard. You can wander down the lime avenues that were a feature of the old grand estate days. If you get a membership, you can enjoy the outdoor pool on the estate on a warm summer’s day.

Down the road you can head to some other must-see spots including Tatton Park, where you can spot deer and attend the RHS Flower Show at the right time of year. There’s also the beautiful Anderton Nature Park, where you can find some unusual plants that grow due to the salt, lime, ash and clinker from the area’s historic salt and soda ash industries. You can find out more about the rare plants on the waymarked wildflower trail around the park. Next to the nature park is Anderton Boat Lift, it’s been named one of the seven wonders of the waterways in its time lifting boats and barges the 50 feet from the River Weaver Navigation to the Trent & Mersey Canal. Together with its visitor centre, coffee shop and play area it’s a great day out for the family.
