Family particular Grandchildren, play a big part of their lives these days and also some travel when they can sneak away.

Why Geoff and Gwen  chose Haughton Moss

Rookery Cottage just called out to us when we were searching for a home in the Chester area from the  Lickey Hills near Birmingham in 1987. The house is an old estate cottage built in 1907 and extended sensitively by Geoff and Gwen. Countryside living beckoned and has rooted them here since.

What makes this Apartment and Shepherds Hut unique

A place to relax with great Cheshire countryside, great local pubs a place to chill yet easily accessible to Nantwich, Chester, Manchester and Liverpool. Also don’t forget the Potteries and a fantastic canal network nearby.
