It’s one of the most expensive places to live outside London which makes it out of reach of ordinary mortals - or does it? There are ways you can experience the Prestbury lifestyle without the millionaire bank balance... and here’s how

Dine at


Why? It’s a neighbourhood restaurant with considerable class. A lovely dining room, contemporary British and European cooking and as you might expect given the name (Bacchus is the Roman god of wine) a terrific wine list. Book now for Christmas.

Feel local at

Prestbury’s Farm Shop

Why? Here is the kind of shop that reminds you that you’re in country village, but one with its fair share of glam. The store has a celebrity owner - Coronation Street actor Charlie Lawson, who with partner Debbie Stanley is now a purveyor of pukka produce. Locals shop here for free range game, locally produced fruit and vegetables, sauces jams, pickles and more. Meat is reared locally in Cheshire and sourced from local farmers and there are fresh bakes and beers, wines and spirits to tempt shoppers.

Shop at

De Moura

Why? If anything embodies the understated yet uber luxe Prestbury lifestyle it is this shop with its meticulously curated collections of gifts and interior objects. Here you can find brands that you’d usually find in a major city such as Persol, Tatteossian, Bellerby& Co Globes, Havana Cigars and more. Delve into their connoisseur’s collection of fine wines and champagnes, or find that perfect Christmas gift for someone you love. The boutique is open six days a week but if you’re so busy you can’t make it in conventional hours, you can even arrange for a private viewing by appointment

Drink at

The Legh Arms

Why? Who wouldn’t want to cosy up in a pub that has old world charm in spades? Originating from the 16th century, this is the place to sit by a roaring fire on a cold winter’s day with a pint of ale or a bottle of wine, or enjoy lunch or dinner and if you want to stay the night, you can in the super-comfy rooms.

St Peter's Church, Prestbury St Peter's Church, Prestbury


St Peter’s Church

Why? This picturesque Grade I listed village church with its Norman Chapel, dating from 1175 is worth visiting in its own right, but head there at Christmas Eve for carols around the crib, and you may find you can’t get in. Hundreds attend the service over the festive season. We are not mentioning any names but it could be a chance to rub shoulders with celebrities such as footballers and soap stars who live in the area, without having to spend a penny.
