Wonderful views, fresh air and a lovely stroll - what more could you ask for?
I flew over to the UK last month to visit and chill with all my friends I met at Uni! Yep, I missed them that much!
One of the days, my friend Olivia took me to Tegg’s Nose Country Park which is very close to Macclesfield in Cheshire. It lies 380 meters above the western edge of the Peak District National Park.
I was lucky enough to have been driven up to Tegg’s Nose - but in terms of public transport, best way there is to get off at the Macclesfield station and grab a Taxi. Its a short 10 minutes ride up to Tegg’s Nose from there!
I can’t believe I haven't visited this place during my three years in Manchester! It’s such a nice area to unwind, chill and enjoy the stunning views of the nearby Macclesfield Forest and the far Welsh Hills and Liverpool. And If you squint and look carefully enough you can even see Manchester’s Beetham Tower from there.
The Tegg’s Nose Trail takes you in a large loop around the hills and on your trek you’ll see sheep and cattle graze the land and birds swooping by. Take your time and enjoy the views and that should last you no longer than 30 minutes. I would highly recommend wearing wellies or shoes you won’t mind getting dirty as the landscape of the area is varied with both meadow and moorland conditions on the rocky slopes and woodland at the base of the summit.
After the short trek we stopped by Tegg’s Nose Tea Room which is located right at the entrance of the country park for a cup of hot chocolate :)
