Carden Green Cottage
Cottage | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Carden Green Cottage is a fully restored mid-Victorian semi-detached country cottage with extensive private gardens that was originally part of the Carden Estate.
The cottage sits in a peaceful hidden hamlet of South Cheshire, overlooking the village green and has fine views of the Welsh hills. It's bordered by the Carden Park Hotel golf course.
The cottage has been renovated and completely modernised using only traditional methods and the highest quality materials, painstakingly maintaining the integrity of the old building. Visit England recently rated it 5 stars and the cottages have featured in Cheshire Life and The Sunday Times.

The Heart of England/Peak District
Carden Historic Cottages in Cheshire are in partnership with Carden Park Hotel. This entitles all cottage residents to free use of the hotel pool and leisure facilities, the same entitlements as hotel residents. Other Hotel facilities include two impressive championship golf courses with a fantastic club house, a Go Ape ropes course, quad biking and four-wheel drive course. Redmonds Restaurant provides award winning fine dining, serving local produce, or there is relaxed dining in the Brassiere.
The Cock o'Barton bar and restaurant is close by and provides fine dining and contemporary interiors in their recently renovated pub. The Bull at Shocklach and the Pheasant Inn, Burwardsley on the pretty Sandstone Trail are worth the drive out too, as serve excellent food. The Carden Arms pub is our local and is a working village pub with good beer.
The larger villages of Malpas and Tattenhall are three and four miles away and are complete with pubs, butchers, well stocked village stores, Post Offices and restaurants such as Try Thai, in Tattenhall. We also recommend a meal at the Grosvenor Arms by the river Dee in nearby Aldford on the Duke of Westminster's estate. It never disappoints.
Walkers can find lovely scenic walks with memorable views along the Sandstone trail on the National Trust owned Bickerton Hills, less than three miles away with free parking.
The historic Roman city of Chester is twelve miles away. Chester is a walled Roman city with the historic Chester Cathedral within the walls and St. John's Church overlooking the river. There are lovely strolls through the town park to the river Dee where you can hire a rowing boat or jump on the open topped tour bus. There is excellent traditional shopping on the world famous medieval rows, as well as on Watergate and Bridge Street and for a treat walk through Godstalls passage to enter the grounds of the cathedral. A lunch at the five star Chester Grosvenor Hotel in its Brassiere is highly recommended as is their Michelin starred Arkle restaurant.
The National Trust properties of Erddig, Chirk Castle, Powys Castle are within easy reach. Nearby is Cholmondeley Castle, eight miles away, whose privately owned grounds and tea rooms are exemplary. They have excellent late spring and summer flowers including spectacular azaleas and rhododendrons. Less than five miles away, Beeston Castle in its glorious setting is well worth a visit to walk up, as the view from the top gives a spectacular vista over Cheshire and surrounding counties.
The Dee valley at Llangollen is also a fascinating place for a day out and we can recommend a meal on the river Dee at The Mill. The taxidermist, who stuffs the road kill that we find has a most unusual and interesting shop! Go for a steam train ride on Llangollen railway, with a farmers market at the end of the track, or enjoy a horse drawn canal boat trip.
The Cheshire Oaks outlet village has numerous designer shops, boasting to be one of the biggest and best in Europe and is easily accessible 20 minutes away.
The very pretty market town of Shrewsbury is less than a forty minute dive away. A visit makes a lovely day out with many privately owned shops, museums and a beautiful park bound by the river Severn.
Alternatively, for a day out in Liverpool, park at Hooton and take a day return train to Liverpool Lime Street. The Albert Dock is the 5th most visited tourist attraction in England, and definitely worth a visit, as is the Lady Leverhulme art gallery on the Wirral.
