Once the festive period is behind us, whether you’re planning on doing dry January or fancy a health kick, you might be feeling a little bit down in the dumps and need a pick-me-up from the new year dip. Well, Cheshire has the answer! Here are a few ideas to suit everyone to get you started...

Mere Golf Resort & Spa

3. Getting Out And About

Or perhaps pampering and relaxation just doesn’t hit the spot, maybe you’d like to get out and about to the Cheshire plains. Explore the Sandstone Ridge which covers 230 sq km of landscape between Frodsham and Malpas. The ridge is rich in history and wildlife, so why not get your hiking boots on and experience the picturesque views of Cheshire. Whether you are simply looking for a quiet stroll out in the country or you want to challenge yourself and walk the full length of the 55km trail - there is a walk for everybody.

4. Hibernate Away From Home

Fancy taking your loved ones off for a weekend away somewhere? Find a lovely cottage and have a break from all the madness after the festive period. There is plenty to see and do if you want to go and explore - or you could just lounge around in your pyjamas with a hot chocolate.

5. Shop the January Sales

Maybe you don’t have the January blues and shopping for Christmas just wasn’t enough. Take a trip to Chester and make a day of it with the vast range of eateries in the city centre to suit every tastebud. Snap up some brilliant bargains to start off your New Year, New You, or refresh your wardrobe!

6. Eat Yourself Happy!

The most important part of a fresh start to the new year is a happy tummy. Head to The Pheasant Inn, an award winning inn, for good, honest wholesome food or visit the Bear's Paw, a characterful luxury country inn, offering gastro pub style food using local and seasonal produce. Bring your canine friends to the Fishpool Inn, where you will experience log fires and a warm welcome in unique, ambient surroundings. Indulge in sumptuous sparkling afternoon tea (including prosecco) at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa, a real indulgent treat!
