Alsager is a pretty market town located between Crewe and the Potteries, in the South East of Cheshire. Surrounded by rolling countryside, it has easy access to walking and outdoor recreation straight from the door. Take a walk to Wedgewood’s Monument, or the ruined castle at Mow Cop - or socialise in one of the ancient pubs.

The area has a pleasant town centre, with wide streets and green spaces, bustling with local businesses and high street shops. There are good schools, a leisure centre, various sports clubs as well as a railway station and excellent proximity to the M6. A new build here offers you easy commutes with great employment opportunities, with the peaceful calm of semi-rural life.
