There are well regarded schools in the area including King's and
Queen's School at Chester, Abbey Gate College at Saighton, and the Grange School at Hartford.

The area is easily accessible to the M53/M56 motorway networks (approximately 14 miles), and the A55 with its links to the North Wales coastline is approximately

Barn Heyes is a beautifully presented Grade II listed house which was originally two cottages. The original timber framed wing of the house is believed to date from the 17th Century and the property is the quintessential country house retaining many wonderful features including exposed oak supports and wall and ceiling beams throughout. The current owners have carried out a sympathetic scheme of refurbishment including the installation of a new kitchen and bathrooms (2013).
A solid timber door opens into a reception hall with York flagstone floor and oak staircase. The hall gives access to all the principal reception rooms. The drawing room is a cosy family space with inglenook fireplace, beams and double French doors to the garden. The formal dining room has a spectacular oak framed wall and lovely view towards the garden. The dining room leads through to the kitchen/breakfast room which has a fitted Cheshire kitchen with central island and Aga. Double glass doors lead from the kitchen to the conservatory creating a fantastic bright and airy entertaining space with lovely views of the garden.
In 2012 the vendors converted the garage to create a superb family room with utility area off. This space could easily be adapted for use as self-contained accommodation.
On the first floor is a galleried landing with an attractive picture window. On this floor is the master bedroom with en suite, four further bedrooms and a family bathroom.
Barn Heyes is approached through a five bar timber gate leading to a gravelled parking area bordered by a sandstone wall and mature shrubs. The property has very pretty gardens which are mainly laid to lawn at the front with well stocked flower beds and hedged borders.To the side is an entertaining terrace and there is a further raised terrace perfect for taking advantage of the magnificent views.
The vendor rents on license a small piece of land from the Bolesworth Estate, approximately £25 per annum.
