Located in a small village just three miles south of the historic city of Chester, The Old Farmhouse is an ideal base from which to explore the area. The 'Park and Ride' facility into Chester is a few minutes away (click www.visitchester.com for details of Chester's attractions), as is the beautiful Shropshire Union Canal.
The city walls, dating from Roman times, take 1 1/2 hours at a leisurely pace to walk around. En route you will pass the famous Eastgate clock, the Roman gardens, the river-bank, the oldest racecourse in England, the King Charles' tower from where the ill-fated monarch watched the Battle of Rowton Moor, and the Cathedral, a place of worship since 992. The black and white Rows (two-tiered medieval shops with covered walk-ways) are unique to Chester and in summer the Town Crier greets visitors at the Cross at Mid-day. The Zoo is world famous and the largest garden zoo in Britain.
Chester is also the ideal base for visiting North Wales with its castles, beaches and mountains and the Wirral peninsula with the Ness gardens and The Lady Lever Art gallery.
The Old Farmhouse is a delightful 18th century building. Built circa 1750 it only ceased to be a farm in 1963. A road-bridge was built over the canal in 1770 so the Egg farm would not be cut off from the main road now known as the A41. Thus Eggbridge Lane was named!
A warm welcome to this AA 4-star rated house from your host, Jane, is assured, with tea/ coffee being served in the lounge or on the patio on arrival.
