Towns to Visit
Situated on the banks of the River Weaver, Nantwich is a medieval market town famous for the black and white timbered buildings dotted around the town. Nantwich is known for having among the highest concentrations of listed buildings in England, with particularly good examples of Tudor and Georgian architecture. It has the largest collection of historic buildings in the county, second only to nearby Chester. As a thriving market town, plus annual music, food and historic events, Nantwich really is quite special.
Chester is a city in northwest England, founded as a Roman fortress in the 1st century A.D. It's known for its extensive, well-preserved Roman walls made of local red standstone. In the old city, the Rows is a shopping district distinguished by 2-level covered arcades and Tudor-style half-timber buildings. A Roman amphitheatre, with ongoing excavations, lies just outside the old city's walls.
For all the beauty of one of England's finest medieval towns, it's the flowers you may notice first - they are everywhere. Or perhaps you will be distracted by the colourful events taking place throughout the year or Shrewsbury's picturesque cobbled alleys and squares.

The Combermere has a long and proud history as a pub - it dates from the 1540s and is a jumble of nooks and crannies, and er've tried hard to preserve the character of the building, which after all was what attracted us to the pub in the first place. It is a classic Shropshire country inn to the bottom of its venerable boots, and pretty much sums up everything we love about pubs.
