A gateway to great things…
The picturesque village of Tattenhall offers rural living within a friendly and vibrant community and is just 8 miles from Chester, the best preserved walled city in England. Founded as a Roman fort in the year 79 and known as Deva, the city was one of three major Roman army bases in the UK.
Today, its bewitching beauty and unique atmosphere make Chester one of Britain's most popular places for an unforgettable short break. You'll find stores galore, all set against a background of unique treasures of antiquity and a vibrant cafe culture where outdoor dining and people watching is a legitimate pastime.
Beyond the city walls, there are many affluent Cheshire villages that are well worth a visit, including Tarporley, something of a retail therapy destination and conservation area with its handsome 18th and 19th century buildings. If you’re looking for something a little wilder, then it’s only a short car journey to Wales and some of the UK’s most iconic vistas.
The independence you want, and the peace of mind you need…
You don’t want to give up your independence, and you don’t need to – Gifford Lea offers all the support and reassurance you could hope for. Bluebird Care, one of the UK's leading homecare and live in care specialists, offer support and personalised care in the comfort and privacy of your own home 24/7.
What this means is you get peace of mind that should your needs change, your living arrangements can evolve to accommodate this. We want people to live the way they want to live for as long as they can, and we’ll do everything we can to make this happen.
More than just a plot of land…
The name Tattenhall is believed to have originated from the old English name Tata and halh meaning ‘meadow’ or ‘lea’ an open piece of grassland or field. This is apt, considering the village enjoys expansive views over open countryside all the way to the majestic vista of the Welsh mountains.
Gifford Lea isn’t full of history like some of our other villages. Instead, it has the countryside, a landscape that’s almost as old as time itself.
