Rebuilt in the 1880’s on the site of the former coaching inn, The Swan is a glorious example of Victorian architecture, with striking Tudor Revival half-timbered gables atop red-brick chequered walls. Standing opposite the 13th century Grade I listed St Oswald’s Church, where Cromwell’s troops rested after the bloody Battle of Winwick Pass, The Swan is at the heart of the historic village of Winwick.

Just three miles north of Warrington and close to the M62, Winwick is on the old Warrington to Wigan turnpike road, and the present Swan stands on the site of an earlier coaching inn of the same name. Listed in the Domesday Book in 1086, visitors can literally walk through history in Winwick. The Winwick Walk winds through the Cheshire countryside, traversing The Swan, St Oswald’s Church, the famous Winwick Hospital, and St Oswald’s Well – dedicated to St Oswald, saint and king of Northumbria. The well water is believed to have special healing powers.

Winwick Parish is surrounded by the attractive countryside of Sankey Valley – from its wooded hillsides and lowlands to the panoramic heights of purple moorland and wild hills. The coast-to-coast Trans-Pennine Trail passes close by at Sankey Valley Country Park.

The historic Swan Inn is a perfect point from which to explore the Cheshire countryside, with a lovely beer garden for al fresco dining in summer, and a delicious seasonal pub menu and Sunday roasts served all-year-round.
