Our View

Built by Sir Randle Mainwaring in 1585, Peover Hall was extended in the 1760s, and much later, used as a HQ for General Patton's Third Army who were in training for the D-Day Landings in 1944. By the time the then-owners - the Brooks family - returned in 1950 the place was in a terrible state, partly thanks to a fire caused by a careless GI. A major restoration programme was undertaken, and this splendid house is the result. Oak panelling, a long gallery and many antiques and other items make for a fascinating visit, and the gardens are home to a 500-year old oak and an avenue of pleached lime trees.

About the area

Discover Cheshire

Nestled between the Welsh hills and Derbyshire Peaks, the Cheshire plains make an ideal location to take things slow and mess around in boats. Cheshire has more than 200 miles (302 km) of man-made waterways, more than any other county in England. The Cheshire Ring is formed from the Rochdale, Ashton, Peak Forest, Macclesfield, Trent and Mersey and Bridgewater canals. This route takes you through a lot of Cheshire, and bits of other counties as well.

While exploring the county’s waterways, covering ground on foot or admiring the typical white plaster and black timber-frame houses, make sure to have a taste of Cheshire’s most famous produce. Although Cheddar has become Britain’s most popular cheese (accounting for over half of the cheese sales in the UK), it was once Cheshire cheese that was in every workman’s pocket back in the 18th century. Its moist, crumbly texture and slightly salty taste mean it goes well with fruit, peppers or tomatoes. As well as the usual white, there are also red and blue veined varieties.
