Looking at available activities in the Willaston area, there are several golf courses, as well as parks and botanic gardens providing countryside walks and cycle routes aplenty. The new development will provide an ideal base from which to embrace all the region has to offer, from outdoor activities to the West and North, as well as big city fun in Liverpool less than an hour away. Another notable feature is that Willaston hosts an annual festival with parades, various food stalls, games, fancy dress and for particular novelty interest, the World Worm Charming Championships which take place in the village and have done every year since 1980!
Willaston is able to offer a range of enjoyable activities and nearby destinations to visit within a short journey of the development at Willow Grange. With an observatory in Jodrell Bank, Tatton and Lyme parks, castles in Cholmondeley and Peckforton and stunning halls at Arley and Capesthorne are just a small selection. If you’re in search of further cultural highs, the Crewe Heritage Centre and the Lyceum are both fantastic, while Nantwich’s timber-framed shops offer a striking charm. For anyone seeking out some physically-challenging sporting pursuits, there’s the nearby North Staffs Ski Club with dry slopes.
There are several quality schools, a good hospital (Crewe Leighton), pubs, restaurants, bars and cafes, as well as plenty of local shops. If more intense retail therapy is called for, then Nantwich and Crewe offer a range of options, and it’s not too much further on to Stoke-on-Trent or the Freeport Talke designer outlet village. In terms of transport, Willaston is provided for by some of the UK’s major road networks being close enough to hop onto, while far enough away to not cause visual or noise disturbance. As well as the M6 in proximity, Crewe railway station is close by and provides a starting point for train journeys to anywhere in the country. If you’re looking to take a flight, the closest airport is Manchester, which is around an hour’s drive to the north.
