You’re just a five-minute stroll from Holmes Chapel, a pretty village overlooking the walking paradise that is the Dane Valley. Trip-worthy Cheshire attractions include the Anderton Boat Lift, and the ancient Roman walled city of Chester. Once you've done this, explore the market town of Nantwich and shop for a bargain, then visit the Wedgewood Visitor Centre and world-famous Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre that houses the Lovell Radio Telescope. For animal-lovers, Chester Zoo is under an hour away.
