Wings Cottage is situated within the small hamlet of Hales which was originally entirely owned by the Hales Hall Estate with every occupant employed on the Estate. Nowadays the majority of the properties are privately owned however the village has retained a strong community feel and ethos in keeping with traditional Estate lifestyle. Hales is centred around the attractive St Marys Church which sits in an elevated and commanding position. The Hales and District Club is a community owned bar and snooker club which is a popular gathering place for the locals.
A comprehensive range of amenities including schools, shops, supermarket, leisure facilities and doctors' surgery are found in nearby Market Drayton. Within a 25-mile radius are Nantwich, Shrewsbury and Newcastle-under-Lyme, all of which offer a wider range of services. The area is well served by private and state primary and secondary schools and the property is well placed for commuters with excellent road and rail links and airports within 1.5 hours' drive
This stunning area of North Shropshire is particularly popular with walkers, cyclists and equestrians who all enjoy the benefits of rural living whilst having the convenience of modern amenities within easy reach. The nearby Burntwood and Bishop's Wood are particularly popular and both historic woodlands are crisscrossed with walking and riding routes.
Wings Cottage is approached on a small, quiet country lane. A mature rhododendron hedge largely screens the property from the road, hiding the in-and-out driveway and parking area ensuring privacy and peacefulness.

This charming cottage was significantly extended on the ground floor some years ago and there is clearly potential for further extension to the first floor. To the front of the house is a substantial sitting room which is particularly light and airy and has the advantage of a bay window to the front and double doors to the garden. The dining room and snug are currently open plan but could easily be reverted to two rooms if required.
The relatively new well-equipped kitchen is situated to the rear of the house and is open plan to the conservatory which allows a large seating area with a fabulous view over the garden.
To the first floor there are three bedrooms, the master having a range of fitted wardrobes, and a family bathroom. The front two bedrooms have the advantage of far reaching, panoramic views with Peckforton Hills clearly visible in the distance.
The gardens are predominantly found to the rear of the property with substantial hedgerows and fencing ensuring complete privacy. Largely laid to lawn, the gardens are encircled by flower beds which are carefully planted with a wide selection of flowers and shrubs. To the rear of the lawn, behind the brick potting shed, is a raised bed currently home to a selection of cutting flowers which could be used as a vegetable patch. Moreover this area would be ideal for creation of a chicken run. The view to the rear is as attractive as the front with an open outlook over farmland towards The Burntwood in the distance.
Mains electric and water are connected. Oil fired central heating system. Drainage is to a private shared septic tank which is located within land owned by the Hales Estate.
