|With its combination of shops, pubs, modern and traditional houses and fine community facilities, Tattenhall is a typical rural Cheshire small town - an ideal spot at which to stop and replenish supplies while touring the county's delightful countryside.|
The nearby Peckforton Hills
form part of a sandstone ridge that rises above
the Cheshire Plain in the west of the county.
Magnificent walking country, the hills provide panoramic views across a patchwork landscape of hedges, trees and ponds.
Also, within ten minutes drive of Tattenhall are two famous castles. The ruins of 13th century Beeston, destroyed in the English Civil War three hundred years ago, stand dramatically on a craggy, tree covered hill.
The steep climb to the top is rewarded with views as far as North Wales in the West and the Pennines in the East.
|Peckforton Castle, just a short distance away, is a perfect Victorian copy of a medieval fortification. It was used as the location for the Hollywood production of Robin Hood, starring Patrick Bergin and Uma Thurmann.|
