Cheshire autumn walks, great pubs and perfect properties

With the changing of the season comes the glorious bursts of autumn colour, and what better way to experience the wonder of this time of year than with a country walk. Even better to be able to access the wonderful Cheshire countryside a hop, skip and jump from your own home, and even better to be able to round off your hike than with a well-deserved pint at a country pub! We feature a couple of great walks with country pubs in Cheshire and two fabulous properties for sale close by…

There’s no denying that a walk around Beeston Castle, Peckforton Hills and the Cheshire Plain is a perfect way to spend a Sunday. There’s a great walk with a wonderful pub at the end, beginning at Beeston Castle car park.

Once you’ve taken in the beauty of the castle, and perhaps stopped for a morning coffee at the cafe, head south on the Sandstone Trail, where a 44 minute leisurely walk takes you through country lanes, through the edge of the forest at Peckforton Castle and along the pretty lanes to your final destination: The Pheasant Inn, Burwardsley, where a welcoming pint and a hearty lunch or dinner awaits the wear traveller!

A finalist in the Great British Pub Awards 2021 and named in Tom Parker-Bowles and Olly Smith’s “100 Best Places to Eat and Drink Outside in England”, and with roots that can be traced to 1650, The Pheasant Inn is perfect for a cosy autumn get together around open fires, with freshly cooked wholesome food awarded an AA rosette and featuring in the Michelin Good Pub and Egon Ronay guides. 

The Chapel situated in Burwardsley near Tattenhall, accessed off a picturesque country lane overlooking open countryside and within walking distance of the Sandstone Trail and across the road from The Pheasant Inn is an attractive, five bedroom former Chapel sympathetically restored and extended occupying a highly sought-after location with spectacular views.
