Could this village be the perfect place to indulge in the good life?

Tattenhall is one of those idyllic Cheshire villages that could easily be the backdrop for a cosy Sunday night TV drama.

With its pretty houses, church and village hall, it’s Midsommer Murders (without the murders) and of course it’s a lovely location for an afternoon pottering in the shops, dining in a lovely restaurant and enjoying the laid back country lifestyle.

The village can trace its history back to the Domesday book and has a history rich in agriculture, so if you want Cheshire produce, this is certainly the place to find it. Do as you would in any rural village in France or Italy and stock up on fine foods, local cheeses and dairy products and locally sourced meats.

It’s the agricultural heritage on which Tattenhall has built its wealth and if anywhere embodies the good life it’s here but it isn’t all just Tudor style buildings and village tranquillity. Tattenhall has its own Marina which ups the ante over other local villages and with the big city Chester just down the road, those who live here have the best of all worlds.

As we approach Christmas, it’s a good place to get into the seasonal spirit with a little festive shopping spree. Like many smaller locations, independent businesses are the perfect place to discover unique ranges of home and garden accessories, vintage items, candles, toiletries, cards, gifts , flowers and plants.

Time for refreshment and there are lots of lovely inns and restaurants to enthral the visitor - Tattenhall even has its very own ice cream version of ‘Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory where you can enjoy a delicious cone in what is reckoned to be the world’s largest ice cream parlour or, experience everything from ice cream cone diggers to playing candylicious crazy golf.
