Here's two for consideration.
Gibraltar Farm. Silverdale....Open all year, easy to get to from M6 and there are all the amenities a 15mins. walk in the village. What folks call 'the best pub in the world' is also there....and I for one couldn't agree more!
The Cotton Arms, Wrenbury, just south of Nantwich, Cheshire.....Nice rally field behind the pub. All amenities, and there is an excellent wooden building for functions. Superb pub with excellent beers and well priced food on offer and nice walks along the canal which runs past the site. A small supermarket is a few minutes walk from the site.
