Things to do in Kelsall, Cheshire
Kelsall is a pretty Cheshire village with rural charm yet near exciting and varied visitor attractions. There is a genuine warmth and friendliness in the people who are fortunate to live in this beautiful area.
A settlement has existed here since the times when the Romans passed through the village on the Salary Route - transporting the salt from Northwich to the garrison at Chester.
Change and modernisation has happened slowly and with great care to protect the oldest parts of the village and the lovely old cottages.
The community centre and the social club provide a pleasant meeting place and the tennis club and bowling green are always well attended.
Walkers enjoy a wide choice of footpaths leading to the wonderful Sandstone trail and the Eddisbury Way or to follow the Shropshire Union canal towpath meandering through the meadows.
Characterful pubs provide locally sourced food, real ales & excellent wines.
The Morris Dancer pub and the common land alongside is the aptly named venue for the Chester Folk festival in May when visiting hoards descends to enjoy an explosion of music and dance.
At the top of Kelsall hill lies part of the ancient Delamere forest with its interesting visitor centre and fascinating wetland areas with its varied wildlife. For the more energetic, there are mountain bikes for hire for exploring the many trails.
To the South, the mighty Beeston Castle provides views over the Cheshire plain with a wealth of information about the Natural history of the area.
To the East, the old Coaching town of Tarporley with its lovely shops best seen at Christmas with its Dickensian atmosphere or dressed in bunting for the Summer Carnival.
Do make time to visit one day - Kelsall is a great base for a relaxing and enjoyable break, and you'll be made very welcome!
