Often referred to as one of the most desirable counties in the UK, Cheshire offers a city vibe against a backdrop of English countryside. And with plenty of shops, attractions and beauty spots to explore, it's ideal for a weekend break or holiday.
It’s mostly known for luxury hangouts, stylish boutiques and leafy villages that are home to the rich and famous. But travel to the outcrop of Alderley Edge or venture out to Cheshire’s Peak District and you’re sure to be struck by Cheshire’s natural beauty too.
Cheshire has been described by Visit England as somewhere you can really experience the high life and one of its villages has been recently named as one of the best places to live in North West England. So why not discover Cheshire for yourself on a holiday to remember?

Obsessed with all things entertainment? A visit to the multi award-winning Storyhouse in Chester is a must for those in search of blockbuster movies, epic live productions and open air theatre and cinema festivals. All under 30 minutes away from Delamere Forest.
Inside this £37m restored building there’s lots to discover. The main attractions are the boutique independent cinema and a secret storytelling den for children situated in the library. There’s also a studio theatre and 800-seat auditorium where you can watch everything from musicals to stand up comedians.

If a foodie break is more your style, you’re in the right spot. Enjoy an Alice and Wonderland themed afternoon tea just two miles from where author Lewis Carroll was born. Head to the Fishpool Inn for comforting meals in a cosy space nestled at the edge of Delamere Forest.
