In every sense, 4 stars Craxton Wood is a breath of fresh air. Dating from the turn of the last century, the original house is an architectural delight with exposed beams, wood panelling and fine English oil paintings scattered through a building of elegant proportions. Sympathetically extended in 1999, Craxton Wood is now one of the finest hotels in the North West of England with 72 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, elegant rose gardens and charming woodland. Yet all this secluded beauty is within easy reach of the area`s major towns and cities and, thanks to the extensive motorway network, a short distance away from the rest of the country beyond. Close to the ancient Roman town of Chester and the rugged beauty of North Wales, Craxton Wood is a country home where rural charm and modern luxury have rarely come together quite so beautifully.
