If you are looking for new ideas for places to walk in Cheshire and Greater Manchester, here are a few of my favourites.

Lyme Park:  Disley, Cheshire

I love Lyme Park. It was one of the first places we visited when we moved to this area over 16 years ago. It’s a large estate managed by the National Trust. Every time you go, you can walk a different route through trees, up and down hills, with amazing views. You might even get to see the deer. You might be familiar with pictures of The Cage, which sits at the top of a hill with 360-degree views.

The Carrs and Styal Woods
Wilmslow and Styal Cheshire.

An easy walk alongside the river in The Carrs will bring you to Styal Woods. You can walk through the woods to Quarry Bank Mill, where you can access more wonderful woodland and water. I love walking around these woods all year round to see the changes the seasons bring to the woodland. I’ve even spotted a Kingfisher once or twice, too.

Fletcher Moss
Didsbury, Manchester

Here, you can walk in the lovely botanical gardens, stroll by the river, or into Stenner Woods. One of the most striking features where many people like to take photos (including me) is the avenue of tall Poplar trees.

Bramhall Park
Bramhall Stockport

Bramhall Park is a superb green space in the grounds of 14th-century Bramhall Hall. The park consists of landscaped green areas, woodland, ponds and streams with various trails to explore.

I have yet to mention that all these places have great cafes!!! How strange, I wonder, that I like walking in parks where you can get a coffee and something good to eat!!
