Cheshire is a prosperous county that boasts superb hotels, lovely old pubs and country inns offering comfortable rooms, high quality food, great wine lists, unbeatable real ales, and an all-round warm and friendly welcome. You’ll be well catered for.


There are more than a dozen high-quality Cheshire hotels either on or very close to the Sandstone Trail, and a similar number of traditional Cheshire country pubs and inns within easy walking distance of the Trail. They range from small country house hotels like the Heathercliffe, near Frodsham, to luxurious establishments such as stately Willington Hall, at Willington, or the stunning mock-medieval Peckforton Castle Hotel, high on the Peckforton Hills, at the heart of the Sandstone Trail.
