Local information

  • The desirable Hamlet of Acton lies about half a mile Northwest on the outskirts of the historic market town of Nantwich. It is a small village mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Acton Grange and Cobblestone Cottage are close to St Marys Church and Acton Church of England Primary School (about 1/4 mile distant). Acton is known for Dorfold Hall, a magnificent Jacobean Stately home. The area is agricultural, with dairy farming the main industry. Around a third of the area falls within the Dorfold Estate. Historically, agriculture was the major employer, but it has now been overtaken by the service industries, with many residents commuting significant distances outside the parish to work.
  • Four major motorways which cross Cheshire ensure fast access to the key commercial centres of Britain and are linked to Nantwich by the A500 Link Road. Manchester Airport, one of Europe's busiest and fastest developing, is within a 45-minute drive of Nantwich. Frequent trains from Crewe railway station link Cheshire to London-Euston in only 1hr 30mins.
  • Manchester and Liverpool offer alternative big city entertainment. Internationally famous football teams, theatres and concert halls are just some of the many attractions.
  • Wychwood Park Golf Club, designed to European PGA tour standards, is approximately 8 miles distant. The historic market town of Nantwich is 2 miles away. Nantwich is renowned for its beautiful architecture and character. Nantwich offers a good selection of independent shops, eateries, restaurants and bars but also provides more extensive facilities including supermarkets and leisure centre. The attractive Roman city of Chester is approximately 18 miles away.
