Things To Do in Hale Village

Nestling in the timeless village of Hale on the Mersey estuary, with miles of waterfront walks and access to both natural beauty and important heritage, all on your doorstep.

Get away from the big city with your four legged friends and explore the delights of this hidden gem in north west England. Childe of Hale was the name given to John Middleton, a 9 foot 3 inch local legend who lived in the cottage and slept with his feet out of the window.

Take a short stroll to one of the two casual outdoor pubs in the village, perfect for planning days out or stopping off on the way home.

Take pooch for a walk around Hale Park, visit beautiful St Mary’s Church and take the path eastwards down to the banks of the River Mersey, which spreads out to its widest point before heading to the Irish Sea.

Follow the path all the way around the headland, past John Lennon Airport, and discover Speke Hall. This is a National Trust property, based on a beautiful stately home in acres of gardens, and has a dog friendly cafe to stop off in for refreshments.

Next door is the Speke and Garston Coastal Reserve, which hugs the estuary to the north west, and is extremely popular with hikers and migrating birds.

Your furry friends will love exploring this huge natural waterfront area, and you can also watch the planes take off overhead.

A very short drive to the north west takes you into Liverpool, which boasts some superb parks as well as its famous visitor attractions and shops for everything you could want.

Cross over to Birkenhead and the Wirral peninsula, with its fabulous views of the Irish Sea. Ferries cross to the Isle of Man, Belfast and Dublin regularly, if you fancy a day trip across the water.

Our Thoughts

Childe of Hale Cottage is a unique holiday home in a unique part of the world. You might love it so much you don’t want to go out, just sit in and admire the beamed interior as you sit around the fireplace.

Pooch will love the back garden, and you can keep an eye on your four-legged friends from the Dutch door in the kitchen.

The village is begging to be explored, and there are two dog friendly pubs a few hundred yards away, so you really are spoiled for choice.

Explore the riverside paths with your canine companions, following the headland round to beautiful Speke Hall, and the hidden gem of a nature reserve which adjoins it. Liverpool is just next door, so you and your party have the best of both worlds.
