The market town of Whitchurch offers a variety of social and leisure facilities with specialist shops on a bustling high street. The historic City of Chester, which boasts defensive walls constructed by the Romans, provides extensive shopping along with a broad range of commercial and social facilities. The area is extremely well served educationally with a superb selection of both primary and secondary state and private schools with the well respected Bishop Heber High School and Malpas Alport Primary School being only two miles distant. The local area is steeped in history and natural beauty. The Sandstone Trail is considered by many to provide some of the best walking in South Cheshire and there are a plethora of footpaths and bridlepaths criss-crossing the surrounding farmland. With excellent road links and nearby rail links, along with a number of international airports within 1.5 hours’ drive, this property would be ideal for those needing to commute further afield for work. This attractive cottage combines the best of both worlds offering the opportunity for a truly traditional village lifestyle whilst still being within close proximity of urban facilities.
