Mere Farm – Astbury near Congleton

Sunday 17th July 2022

We’re staying on a working farm that is also a Britstop ( which as members means we can stay free) and even though it doesn’t advertise the fact, it has a five van site. The fridge hasn’t been operating too well on gas and as you need the beer to be cold, we opted for a pitch with electricity for £12.50 a night.

The farm is open to the public with a petting zoo, small shops operate out of the farm buildings, there’s a farm shop, butchers and fishmongers amongst others. A pleasant place for families to visit.

Shopping area.

There are good walks out from the site and you can walk to the local town Congleton. After the evening meal we walked the few hundred metres to the village where there is a fascinating church and a very hospitable pub where we enjoyed a cooling drink.

Sadly no information about this intriguing tomb.
Hollow Yew tree reputed to be over 2,000 years old.
Nice outdoor seating area to the rear.
