Leighton Hall Farm Cottages, Near Neston, The Wirral, Cheshire was our chosen place to stay for a weekend of quiet countryside where we could access the busy towns and cities close by.
We chose these cottages as they were furnished to a high standard and had enough space for a group of 11 ladies all to have our own rooms. We hired all three cottages but one would be fine for a family of up to 6 people. I booked through Hoseasons Cottages who left loads of information for us on arrival with recommendations for places to visit and eat. I can hearty recommend the Greek restaurant Kri Kri in nearby Neston village.
A half hour rail journey took us into Liverpool for a trip around the Albert Dock, The Beatles Story museum, Mathew Street for The Cavern Club, and to hit the shops in Liverpool One.
The next day we spent all afternoon visiting Port Sunlight, the village Lord Lever built for his workforce when the UniLever factory was in its prime. This is a great place to visit for a history lesson and a nice leisurely Sunday stroll.
The cottages aren't far from North Wales and Chester too, I may have to return to see that part of the country for another weekend away!
