In a tucked away corner of the North West peninsula, lies the Wirral. Propped up between Liverpool and Cheshire, also close by to Chester and then Manchester, West Wirral has a lot to offer for those looking for high quality food and drink and pursuits.
The Wirral is the perfect place to own or rent a property in order to get superb coastal views. Looking out to North Wales, the views are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Wirral’s top attractions.
Key areas are West Kirby, Hoylake, Heswall, Caldy and Parkgate, all of which are ideal for those with high powered city jobs in Liverpool or Manchester, seeking a sanctuary to return home to each evening.
West Kirby Beach is a summer hotspot. With the nearby Marine Lake, a mile in circumference there are a host of sailing or watersports activities to undertake, or walk around the lake on the footpath finished off with a well earned coffee or drink at one of West Kirby’s extensive range of bars.
West Kirby’s yacht club is a member’s only experience nearby, but also the perfect venue for a private function. Ideal to get the champagne flowing on an early summers evening.
With a footpath leading to Hoylake and the beach there ‘Red Rocks’ those looking for a more secluded spot can set off on foot.
Arguably the most picturesque spot on the Peninsula, Caldy Beach is remote, extremely picturesque and still quiet on a beautiful summer’s day due to its location. Harder to reach on foot, but just five minutes by car from West Kirby, those who know how to find it, certainly are in the know.
Wildlife and Coast
Further along, is the historic South Wirral coastal resort of Parkgate. Accessible by driving, or walking or cycling down the coastal path ‘The Wirral Way’ there is plenty of nature to be seen along the way.
Parkgate’s top attraction is the old ice cream shop. Traditional and famous, Nicholls of Parkgate is busy even in the winter months. Parkgate too has a great view of the coast, so is a good spot to enjoy an ice cream even sitting in the car or from one of the top restaurants lining the front Parkgate Parade.
Food and Drink
The Wirral is filled with restaurants of any kind, popular with both regular clientele, tourists or those looking for something new.
A special mention must be given to Fraiche Restaurant based in the village of Oxton, on the Wirral. The Michelin star restaurant only seats fifteen at a time, and is usually booked up months at a time, but is worth the wait. Chef Mark Wilkinson is a master of his craft.
Goldmine for Golfers
There are countless golf courses on the Wirral, most notably the Royal Liverpool golf course, located in Hoylake. The Royal Liverpool has twice hosted the Golf Open Championship, in 2006 and 2014 when Rory McElroy won the competition.
For other keen sporty types there are a host of tennis clubs and horse riding facilities amongst other pursuits and clubs to join.
Propeller Lettings Agency covers all the key areas of the Wirral and the North West Peninsula and has a lot to offer residents and non-residents alike. It has something to offer everyone of any age and has particular appeal to those working in the city, seeking a luxurious and adaptable place to live.
