 Neston is a short distance from the A540 Chester to West Kirby road, it nestles into the Cheshire countryside providing a peaceful setting for its regular, historic Friday Market.

 Parkgate is down the road which is very pleasant and popular for walks, its distinctive architecture is an indication of its historic roots and many of the old coaching houses provide for local pubs and places to eat. It’s got excellent transport links for Chester the Wirral and Liverpool. Free car parking makes it an attractive place to stop and its close proximity to the Wirral Country Park provides access for walkers and cyclists alike.
