EXPLORING CHESHIRE’S GOLDEN TRIANGLE

I would love to be on the road every single day to discover something new. Or I could easily travel throughout the UK all year around. It’s what we both love doing and could never get bored of. But if everything was available to you anytime you want it, it’s no longer special, is it? cheshire’s golden triangle

 
 

What I’m about to say now might surprise or even shock some of you. I do watch ‘The Real Housewives of Cheshire’ because I find it highly amusing. Not only do the housewives (who aren’t really housewives but business women) usually have strong discussions or fights about something, I’m even more interested in the places they visit here in the UK. Whether it’s a café or some mansion, I usually write it down so we can check it out ourselves. Most of the women live in Cheshire’s Golden Triangle, one of the most affluent areas around Wilmslow, Alderley Edge and Prestbury. You will find actors and football players here so the number of impressive mansions is enormous.cheshire’s golden triangle

 
 

It was while I watched the series that I discovered Alderley Edge. The little village that we only passed by car looked lovely but that day we wanted to go to the famous sandstone ridge where you can go for nice walks and have a great view towards Cheshire’s plain from Stormy Point. You also find the pub The Wizard of Edge here which looks absolutely wonderful.

 
 

After that we drove to Mobberley where we already went some months ago (find the post here). I loved it so much there that I couldn’t wait to go back. While walking around we stumbled upon The Church Inn and fell in love. As you usually need to make a reservation if you want to go for a Sunday Roast, we noted that next time we’re in the area. You also find phone boxes with books in Mobberley. It’s an exchange and it’s amazing, isn’t it?

 
 

Enough of the written word though. You can watch my latest vlog on YouTube. Find it on my channel and don’t forget to subscribe.

There is also plenty of activity on Halloween.
Much love

Hey Julia, It’s beautiful there and the area so lovely. Sadly we didn’t have time for the caves but I would love to go back. And thanks so much for mentioning Halloween, this gives me great ideas. Have a great weekend.x

I enjoyed the photos thanks Kirsten. We also had that programme here except ours was called The housewives of Auckland’ – I watched it once and never again – but it was interesting to see – very contrived of course. I can see it was worth watching from your end as you would end up having some good places to visit!

Glad you like the photos Ruth, thank you. Hahah I know, the programme is in every major city I think. I don’t take it seriously at all, on the contrary I find it extremely funny. But I have to admit the places they go to are always beautiful and so many of them nearby or within easy distance, so it’s great to get some ideas for photos.x

I think you would love it Nancy, so many places to see if you ask me and close to North Wales as well.

Hi again Kristen,
I forgot to mention the “Queensgate” next to the Queens hotel by the Railway Station at the end of the shopping centre going towards Wilmslow. It was built in the 1970s on some derelict land and looks like a Victorian street with shop windows originally they were pubs but I think they are now Restaurants and are well worth a visit, I hope they are still there, i haven’t been that way for a number of years.
