The local area guide to living in Tarporley

Tarporley boasts a pleasing combination of historic and modern buildings, housed in a traditional village atmosphere. It’s widely considered to be one of the most postcard-perfect villages in Cheshire. Situated 10 miles from Nantwich and 11 miles from Chester, Tarporley sits comfortably in the Cheshire countryside. The settlement has been here for centuries, and earned its name from the Old English for ‘pear wood near a hill,’ or ‘Toepelei’ which is what it is named in the Domesday Book.

The village retains historic buildings such as St Helen’s Church, which dates back to the 15th century. Yet there is no shortage of modern conveniences, including services, shops, a community centre, and schools. This helps make it a pleasant place to live beyond its charming appearance.
