Motorbikes and bicycles

We have a large yard with plenty of space for turning and parking trailers.

Taxis and buses

We can arrange taxis for you with a good local company. Please remember to give us reasonable notice if you need a taxi.

There is a bus service from Christleton and Waverton into Chester, but there is no bus service running close to the farm.

Chester has a good 'park & ride' scheme. Parking in the city centre is quite expensive and sometimes hard to find, so this makes a good alternative. The closest car parks for this are at Chester Zoo (off the A41) and at Boughton Heath (by the A51 / A55 junction).

Places of worship

The nearest churches are:

  • C of E - St James', Christleton
  • Roman Catholic - St Columba, Hoole


All the mobile networks have good reception at the farm

Free wi-fi available in all rooms for guests.


We hope that your stay at Cotton Farm will be completely trouble-free, but we have details of local doctors, dentists and opticians if you have any problems.  The nearest hospital with A&E is in Chester.
