Mayfield Farm is set in a lovely large plot in the village of Elson, just 1.5 miles to the pretty market town of Ellesmere. The area is known as the ‘Shropshire Lake District’ with the local landscape having a series of nine meres which were formed by the retreat of glaciers during the last ice age. They are unique in Britain as they do not have a flow of water into them to maintain the water level. The largest mere sits beside Ellesmere’s town, and has a Green Flag award for being one of the best green spaces in the country. It is surrounded by woodland walks, gardens and historic parkland.

Ellesmere offers a welcoming mix of independent shops including a traditional butcher, baker, weekly market and a supermarket together with a variety of cafes, pubs, inns and restaurants. It also hosts a number of festivals throughout the year which include local artists and crafters.

The medieval county town of Shrewsbury, famed for the birth place of Charles Darwin, provides more extensive shopping and leisure facilities including Theatre Severn and Quarry Park which hosts the famous flower show in August. The city of Chester offers a wide selection of bars and restaurants.

There are many leisure opportunities in the area including sailing, boating on the Shropshire Union Canal, racing at Bangor-on-Dee and Chester Racecourse along with a number of renowned golf courses nearby. The area is also very popular with those who wish to take advantage of the numerous scenic walks and footpaths this area provides.

There are a number of well-regarded schools within the area in both the state and independent sector, including Ellesmere College, Lakelands Academy, Packwood Haugh, Oswestry School, Moreton Hall, along with renowned schools in Shrewsbury and Chester.

Mayfield Farm is located within easy access of the A5 and M54 which provide access to the Midlands and national motorway network. Crewe station offers a direct rail service to London Euston. Regional airports include Manchester, Liverpool and
