About the Development

Some locations have a charming country setting, while others have easy access to the city. Some have great shopping and leisure close by, while others have great local schools. But at The Pastures you can have them all, and so much more, making it the perfect place for you and your family.

Just minutes from the area’s largest shopping and leisure centre at McArthur Glen Designer Outlet at Cheshire Oaks, yet surrounded by open West Cheshire countryside, The Pastures has so much to offer. There’s an easy commute to both Chester and Liverpool, a superb selection of local schools, and if that’s not enough, don’t forget the beaches and mountains of North Wales and the classic golf courses of Cheshire all within easy reach too, giving you the enviable lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of.

Coming soon, The Pastures offers a choice of three and four bedroom homes near Chester from Redrow’s award winning Heritage Collection, which combines the best of traditional architecture with modern, family friendly interiors. With so much so close, these are sure to be sought after homes, so register your interest today to be the first to know the news as this development progresses.


There are several nearby convenience stores, with a large Sainsbury’s at Cheshire Oaks and a Costco store just five minutes away, as well as Morrisons, Asda, Aldi and Iceland all within easy reach.
For GPs, register with Hope Farm Medical Centre, around a mile away (Sat Nav CH66 2WW, call 0151 357 3777), while dentists can be found at Great Sutton Dental Practice (Sat Nav CH66 3PG, call 0151 339 9487).


If you enjoy eating out, then you are in the right place at The Pastures, with friendly local pubs, big name chains and even Michelin starred restaurants to choose from. Locally you’ll enjoy the pub grub of The Woodland, The Old Wirral Hundred and the Harvester at Stanney Oaks. For a wider selection, head to the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village at Cheshire Oaks, where you’ll find a whole host of your favourite names, from Wagamama to Yo Sushi, Pizza Hut to Prezzo, Zizzi to Las Iguanas.
For more formal dining, head into the city, where you’ll find a selection of sophisticated restaurants, including the Michelin star winner Simon Radley at the Grosvenor Hotel.


The Pastures may enjoy a delightful semi-rural location, but that doesn’t mean settling for just one village school. Here you’ll have a choice of top quality primary schools, all within easy reach, including Meadow Community Primary, which was rated ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted, as well as Capenhurst CofE Primary and St Oswalds’s Primary, both of which were rated ‘good’.
For older pupils, The Whitby High School is close by, with Ellesmere Port Catholic High and Upton by Chester High School offering ‘good’ rated alternatives.
Chester also has some of the finest independent education on offer, with the historic King’s School and Queen’s School both taking day pupils. The University of Chester and the many universities of Liverpool are also within easy reach for stay at home students who want to save on hall fees.


People travel from far and wide to enjoy the attractions at The Coliseum and the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet at Cheshire Oaks, but for you it is just a few minutes’ drive to enjoy a multi-screen cinema with iMax, a world class aquarium at Blue Planet and so much more. Head into Chester and you’ll find everything from one of the UK’s leading zoos to fascinating Roman ruins to explore, as well as cinemas and theatres and the famous Chester Races.
The more active will enjoy a work out at Mollington Health and Leisure Club, David Lloyd at Cheshire Oaks or Ellesmere Port Sports Village, while the Royal Liverpool Golf Club, home of the Open in 2022, is just a short driveaway.


Shoppers will be spoiled for choice at The Pastures. At the McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Village at Cheshire Oaks you’ll find all of your favourite brands at generous discounts, while the adjacent Coliseum has a flagship Marks and Spencer and many other leading shops and stores. Jump a train to Chester and you can explore the intriguing independents nestled amongst the famous Rows, as well as the impressive Browns of Chester Debenhams department store and a large pedestrianised high street. Nearby Ellesmere Port also has lots to offer, including the Port Arcades and an extensive market featuring over 150 stalls.


The North West is known for its extensive motorway network, and you can access this just minutes away at the M53/M56 interchange, which links to the M6 in around twenty minutes. Even closer is the A41, which connects Chester and Birkenhead, while the A55 North Wales Expressway can be reached easily via Deeside. Chester is around 5miles, Birkenhead 12miles, Liverpool 15miles and Manchester just under 40miles.
Merseyrail trains from nearby Capenhurst Station reach Chester in just 10minutes, where you can find connections across the country and direct to London in around two hours. There are also regular trains to Liverpool taking around half an hour.
For family holidays, weekend breaks and business trips, Liverpool John Lennon Airport is just over 20 miles away and Manchester Airport is around 30miles.
