The Bostock Hall Estate is at the very geographical heart of the county of Cheshire. P J Livesey redeveloped the Estate in the late 90’s, refurbishing the Grade II Georgian Manor house into six apartments, the impressive estate buildings into homes and new accommodation within the Walled Garden and The Courtyard. The Estate offers a peaceful, tranquil and secure ‘village’ environment for all residents, affording a real community feel.
Despite its rural location there is an excellent range of local shops in Davenham including local store, Post Office and garage in addition to the Village Hall, Café and Pubs including The Hayhurst Arms which is within walking distance of the Estate. A wider range of amenities are available in the nearby town of Northwich. Local recreational facilities include Delamere and Hartford Golf clubs and Davenham village has its own cricket club. In Northwich there is a sports club, gyms, football club and racket sports facilities in addition to horse racing at Chester and Bangor-on-Dee with various professional riding schools and liveries available locally.
Commuting to the commercial centres of the North West and beyond is straightforward with easy access to the M6 and the property is within 2 miles of Winsford which has a connecting train at Crewe train station providing a 1hr 35 direct service to London Euston. There are international airports at Manchester & Liverpool respectively.
