Food, farms and football

Right on the high street of leafy Alderley Edge, you’ll find De Trafford Arms – a quaint and historic country pub hotel in Cheshire. Built over 200 years ago, this inn has been a beacon for Cheshire tourists and Alderley locals through generations. The old farming town is now the residence of many famous footballers and regularly appears on the Real Housewives of Cheshire television show.

From De Trafford Arms, visit the iconic Jodrell Bank in nearby Macclesfield or head up to the Anderton Boat Lift Visitor Centre in Northwich for some man-made marvels. For something more natural, visit Tatton Park in Knutsford to see stunning gardens come rain or shine. Then, once your legs have had enough, come back to the pub for one of our classic British dishes and a few drinks before you hit the hay. 

More about Cheshire

Cheshire has a reputation as a countryside haven that’s as picturesque as it is filled with culture and history. Bordered by Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Derbyshire, Staffordshire and the Welsh counties of Wrexham and Flintshire, you can use Cheshire as a stepping stone to explore lots more lovely places.

Stretching over 900 square miles, Cheshire’s largest settlements are Warrington, Chester and Crewe, with hundreds of smaller towns and villages dotted across the area. Visiting each one will leave you with a different taste. From Chester’s historic buildings to the brutalist architecture of Ellesmere Port, there’s something for everyone.

If history and culture is your wheelhouse, make sure to visit Little Morton Hall in Congleton, a preserved old hall that was founded in 1895 and is now a historic site. There’s also various other National Trust sites to experience like Walton Hall and Gardens in Warrington.

There’s no end to activities that cater to the whole family, whether you’re a tourist or local. Visit BeWILDerwood in Whitchurch, a rural amusement park that makes use of the surrounding woods to bring joy to children and adults alike. And for something a little less physical, explore the Hack Green Secret Nuclear Bunker to see the newly declassified location of one of the government's secret underground bunkers during the Cold War.

With so much to discover across Cheshire, there truly is an activity or experience for everyone. And after a day of exploration, you’ll be as excited to jump into a warm bed in one of our cosy country pub hotels as you were to see the sights. Book a room today to begin your Cheshire adventure.
