Walking and Cycling

Cheshire is great walking country - not too demanding, but full of beautiful views, peaceful fields and quiet lanes. We have our own guide to walks around the farm, but there are some longer distance paths that pass close to the farm, too.

Sandstone Trail - a 35 mile footpath from Frodsham to Whitchurch, along the Peckforton Hills and passing Beeston Castle.

Bishop Bennett's Way - starting in Cheshire, this route meanders south along the lanes and bridlepaths into Shropshire. It commemorates a 19th century bishop who was one of the first to survey the Roman roads in this part of the country.

Cycling - the small back roads are ideal for cyclists. South Cheshire is rolling countryside, and it is quite easy to plan a route without very steep hills!

Canals - Cheshire is great canal country. Any of the canals make great walking or cycling routes - and the waterside pubs are some of the best in the county.

Grindley Brook Locks - a set of staircase locks on the Shropshire Union Canal make for interesting viewing of the boats as they drop below the main road. There's a good café and delicatessen at the locks, too.
