The market town of Whitchurch is about a mile and a half away and provides a wide range of facilities including restaurants, shops, schools, churches and a supermarket. The major centers of Shrewsbury and Chester are both within easy driving distance of about 20 miles and the M6 motorway (Junction 16) is just beyond Nantwich via the new Barthomley- Hough link (18 miles). There are intercity trains at Crewe Station (2 hours to London Euston) and a link to Whitchurch Station (20 minutes).
