WALKING AND CYCLING
The walk follows the paved path on top of the walls. There are no gates but several steps (although if you are willing to carry a pushchair up and down the steps, it is possible to negotiate the route with a pushchair). Approximate time 1 hour.
We've put a nice selection of walks together some of which can be taken straight from the doors of the cottages on a circular route. Others which take you a bit further afield and also The Sandstone Trail which can be accessed in many places just a couple of miles from the farm. Please hover over the images for a brief description of the walks and then click the links which will direct you to Google maps and our own circular walks from the farm. There are some useful websites at the bottom of this page.
We can also supply you with an Ordnance Survey map which covers both our local area and The Sandstone Trail.
We are ideally situated on the Sustrans National Cycle Network - routes 45 & 70. We can of course store your bikes securely for you during your stay.
Delamere Forest has some great cycling trails and you can also hire bikes there. See links below for more details.
Due to our proximity to Cholmondeley and Bolesworth Castles and their equestrian events as well as being situated on the Bishop Bennett Way bridle path we offer secure grazing facilities for guests partaking in these events and wishing to ride the bridleway. Please contact us for details and click the links below for more information.
"Thank you so much for having us here. I can't begin to tell you how nice it's been to have a little bit of peace and quiet and such a beautiful cottage to grab a little bit of rest in while we can. Let's do it again next year."
"Lovely cottage. Had everything I could need even a picnic basket."
"Great location. Thank you for your help and the lovely little frizzle eggs"
