This cosy property is ideally located for visiting Chester, Liverpool and an abundance of National Trust properties.
Enjoying their rural location set deep within Cheshire’s most scenic countryside, Rookery Cottages are a fantastic couple of properties just 12 miles from the beautiful Roman walled city of Chester. Both The Rookery Shepherd’s Hut (ref UKC188) and The Rookery Apartment (ref E4238) make for a fantastic holiday in rural Cheshire countryside. The Rookery Shepherd’s Hut is located in the grounds of the owner’s home, but enjoys its own seclusion with a private patio, seating area, chiminea and exclusive use of its own wooden hot tub that is chemical free, providing a natural bathing experience. It’s perfect for couples looking for something a bit different for their romantic escape to the country. A modern take on the traditional shepherd’s hut, this unique property successfully combines all of its original rustic charm with all the modern comforts you need from a holiday home. Hand built by a company who specialises in bespoke shepherd’s huts, this small but perfectly formed hut is beautifully presented with solid wood flooring and quality furnishings throughout.
The Rookery Apartment is actually a wing of the owners’ home, so help is always at hand. The Rookery Apartment and The Rookery Shepherd’s Hut each accommodate 2 people. Located in the village of Haughton, the two properties provide the perfect base from which to explore Cheshire and its neighbouring counties, with great local pubs and easy access into Nantwich, 6 miles, and the historic walled city of Chester, with its vast array of shops, pubs and restaurants, famous racecourse and zoo, all just 12 miles away.
There are lots of great walking opportunities in the area including the Sandstone Trail and walks along the local canal network, and as Cheshire is noted as a ‘flat’ county, it is also perfect for cyclists. Other activities available locally include golf, fishing, horse riding and canal boat hire. There are many National Trust properties within easy reach, including Little Moreton Hall, Erdigg and Tatton Park. Other places of interest nearby include Beeston Castle, Cholmondeley Castle Gardens and the Anderton Boat Lift. The many attractions of Liverpool including The Beatles Story and the Albert Docks are under 30 miles, and Manchester is under an hour’s drive. There is also easy access into North Wales, and Llandudno is approximately 1 hour by car. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 300 yards.
