Bustling town

Lymm has all of the amenities that you could wish for

One of Cheshire’s prettiest villages, Lymm is an historic market town that dates back centuries. Mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, its charming centre is a designated conservation area and home to the only Grade I listed monument in the Warrington area, the Lymm Cross.

The village centre is a bustling hub of activity, packed with an array of independent shops, quaint boutiques, quality pubs and restaurants, charming coffee shops and a good selection of everyday amenities. Lymm has an incredible sense of community that sees an annual and varied programme of local events that includes carols around the cross at Christmas, a beer festival, a duck race and a scarecrow trail. Residents in Lymm are never short of something to do.

Bordered on two sides by Lymm Dam and the Bridgewater Canal, the village has so much to offer including picturesque waterside walking routes along the canal or around the dam, which is widely recognised as one of the area’s best beauty spots and a haven for local wildlife, a swim or class at Lymm Leisure Centre or the peaceful fairways of Lymm Golf Club.
