LOCATION '' Of all the villages I have been to in Cheshire in the course of writing my walks, Marbury has made the strongest impression on me. Perhaps the principal of 'less is more' applies, but for tranquillity, I have found nowhere like it. A perfect example of rural England at its best.'' Written by Keith Carter writing for Cheshire Life and printed in 10th Oct 2012 edition Marbury is an extremely popular rural village, having a historic 15th Century hill top church (St. Michaels), which has sweeping views towards Marbury Hall. The village has two meres which are renowned as fishing and bird watching spots. The village green boasts a magnificent oak tree planted in 1814. The village hall provides an impressive base for a range of local events. Community spirit is perfectly encapsulated by 'Marbury Merry Days', which attracts visitors from all over the region to its many stalls and shows. Marbury is also close to Cholmondeley Castle & Gardens, Hill Valley Golf & Country Club, Beeston Castle and the famous Sandstone Trail. The Shropshire Union Canal folds around the outskirts of the village providing many miles of easy walking paths and picturesque locks, in addition to waterside pubs. There is also the recently opened 'Swan Pub' located in the centre of the Village.
Marbury, despite its rural charm, is situated conveniently close to both the A49 and A41. Many commercial centres can be easily reached including Manchester (47 miles), Chester (20 miles), Shrewsbury (28 miles) and Crewe Railway Station can be found within 9 miles which offers main line trains to Manchester, Birmingham and London. The M6 motorway network is also used as a convenient commuting base. For local shopping the historic towns of Nantwich, Whitchurch and Tarporley offer a wide range of facilities from supermarkets and market days to sport centres and leisure activities. The region also has a good choice of schools catering for all ages in both the public and private sectors.
The historic town of Whitchurch, located approx. 3 miles away, boasts 3 supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury's & Lidl, a post office, restaurants, pubs & a regular farmers market.
GENERAL REMARKS Cornflower Mews, Marbury represents the very best in rural living and is situated in the idyllic setting of Marbury Hall Farm, which as a whole is surrounded by meadows, meres and mature stately trees. From the arched windows in the splendid & elegant Sitting Dining Room a wonderful view can be enjoyed over the garden to neighbouring pond, and the area is arguably one of the finest backdrops in South Cheshire. The present owners have sensitively restored & refurbished the property having overseen the magnificent conversion themselves and were able to choose the exceptional fixtures and fittings, and this is immediately self evident upon inspection as a superb range of high grade materials are used throughout.
