Cheshire Life

Just 20 minutes from the lovely walled town of Chester is the rural community of Beeston.
There are ruins of an old castle with sweeping views across the Cheshire plains and the opportunity of seeing rural life in action. A dairy ice-cream farm and a candle workshop factory are two popular attractions set admist the south Cheshire rural countryside.

    I really enjoy the smaller places when travelling. This town has a little bit of everything. I enjoyed reading about it. Loved the cow to cone tips, that place looked like a fun place to visit...thanks

    Believe it or not I did this candle making before. Yes, ME. And I actually am not sure I would like beer flavored ice cream. And no, I am not running a fever. ;P
