The Rookery Apartment

Haughton Taporley Cheshire CW6 9RN 01829 260 069

We say

Gwen and Geoff Burdett ran the Rookery caravan site for years, and a very nice place it was too, nestled in the heart of the beautiful Cheshire countryside in the village of Haughton, near Nantwich. However, they've given it up to focus on the Rookery self-catering apartment – along with a well-appointed Shepherd's Hut – which provides fresh and contemporary self-catering accommodation for two. The apartment has a kitchen and shower room on the ground floor and a galleried living room and double bedroom above, and is a unique and cosy place to stay, and is very well equipped, with TV and DVD, wifi and everything you need in the kitchen, including a microwave. It is in a great location too: just 12 miles from Chester and handy for various local attractions, including canal boat rides, Cholmondeley Castle Gardens and Beeston Castle, not to mention the walking and cycling you can do in the surrounding area. There's also a nice pub – the Nag's Head – just two minutes' walk away. Altogether an excellent and affordable place to stay if you want to explore this part of Cheshire.

Getting There

Take the A51 southeast out of Chester and turn right onto the A49 at Taporley, the A49, and turn right about a mile and a half past the A534 onto Long Lane – signposted to Haughton. The site is on the right a couple of miles down this road, about half a mile past the Nag's Head pub.
