The property

Tucked away on the outskirts of Helsby a stone's throw from the market town of Frodsham, Cheshire, is this delightful end-terrace, Sandstone Cottage, 78 Bates Lane.

Enjoying a peaceful location on a quiet road and easy access to the bustling cities of Chester and Liverpool, 78 Bates Lane is the perfect dwelling for a couples retreat to Cheshire.

Be welcomed into the homely living/dining room, where you can look forward to curling up on the plush armchairs with your loved one and selecting your favourite film from the 32'' Smart TV, as the electric fire adds a warmth and glow to the space.

As you start to feel peckish, head into the kitchen to impress your other half with a flavourful meal, utilising the electric oven, gas hob, microwave and fridge/freezer.

Settle down at the dining table for two and pop open a bottle of fizz, as you tuck-in to a delicious meal and toast to a wonderful getaway.

Wash away the day with an indulgent soak in the bath or refreshing shower, before stepping into the warm embrace of a fluffy towel courtes of the heated towel rail.

As your eyes grow heavy, climb into the sumptuous king-size bed to drift off ahead of a day of adventures.

Awake from a leisurely slumber and prepare for the day in style, followed by coffee out on the small, shared patio before setting out to explore.

Explore the local area, where you will find a good selection of pubs and restaurants for those evenings where you don't feel like cooking, as well as nearby shops for stocking up on fresh ingredients to whip up your loved one's favourite meal.

Helsby is in the heart of Sandstone Trail country and there are walks from the door to Helsby Hill and to nearby Frodsham Hill with access to lots of other lovely areas and pubs on foot or by car; Delamere Forest is also just a short drive away.

For a memorable day out, head to the historic city of Chester, where you can wander the Roman Walls which envelope the town, picnic in the Roman Amphitheatre, set sail along the River Dee on a guided boat tour or delve into the city's heritage at the Grosvenor Museum and imposing cathedral.

In the city you can also find Storyhouse, a place offering a unique theatre and hospitality experience, whilst resting across the road from the historic cathedral.

You will be spoilt for choice with the ample selection of shops and eateries, as well as the famous and most photographed Eastgate Clock.

Chester is also home to the renowned racecourse which plays host to the annual Chester Races which take place from May-September.

Be sure to pay a visit to the popular attraction of Chester Zoo, where you can spend the day meeting a wide variety of exotic animals, watching feeding sessions and wandering the ornate gardens.

Just a little further is Ellesmere Port, where you will find the much-loved Cheshire Oaks Shopping Outlet, the National Waterways Museum and the Blue Planet Aquarium, as well as miniature golf and bowling.

For an unforgettable stay in Cheshire, look no further than 78 Bates Lane.
