Knutsford and Wilmslow are leafy, and very popular, market towns nestled in the Cheshire countryside with excellent transport connections to the vibrant city of Manchester. Many of our team live within walking distance, enjoying the many family-friendly amenities and excellent restaurants and bars in the towns, with others choosing to commute from Manchester with its rich industrial heritage, cultural events, shopping and great nightlife… and not forgetting its world-famous sporting successes!
