Further Information and Other Local Ideas

Just to the north of the park you will find the lovely Rostherne Mere. The pretty mere is a nice place to extend your outing with a picturesque natural lake in peaceful surroundings. The area is also a designated nature reserve where you can look out for a variety of wildfowl on the water. The mere is located less than a mile north of Tatton Hall so easily reached on foot or by bike from the park.
If you head a short distance east you could try the Mobberley Walk. The nearby village is well worth a visit with historic buildings and some excellent pubs to investigate.
Just a few miles east of the park there's another fine National Trust property at Styal Country Park and Woods. The popular park includes woodland trails along the River Bollin and the historic Quarry Bank Mill.
Just a few miles to the south there's Lower Peover where you can visit the Grade I listed church and enjoy a walk to Peover Hall. The 16th century country manor includes beautiful gardens which are open to the public on certain days. Just over a mile south of the village there's something of a hidden gem at Shakerley Mere. The pretty lake includes a 1 mile circular trail, lots of wildlife and pleasant woodland trails. There's also a fine 300 year old pub for refreshments after your exercise.
