Tatton Mere may be the larger of the meres within the grounds, the smaller one being the Melchett Mere, but it isn’t the largest in Cheshire. That honour belongs to Rostherne Mere, a National Nature Reserve that lies just to the north of the grounds of Tatton Park.
You can spot many bird species at Rostherne Mere and it’s one of the best places to witness starlings murmurations in the county. There is also plenty of woodland nearby which are covered by blankets of bluebells in the Spring.
Just south of the mere is the Grade I listed St Mary’s Church, this sandstone building is full of history and is well worth a visit for the impressive interior and sculptures within.
The village of Rostherne itself, is one of the prettiest in the county, the quaint cottages covered in wisteria provide a picture postcard snapshot of Cheshire village life.
