Lyme Wood Grange

Lyme Wood Grange is set in the idyllic village of Audlem and surrounded by lush countryside, in the heart of a friendly and thriving community. The 13th Century St James' Church stands right at the heart of the village and presides over the attractive streets still adorned with traditional wooden shop-fronts and flower displays. But while Audlem retains its picturesque village charm, there's still an excellent range of shops, trades and local amenities at hand. Everything you'll need from a pharmacy to the post-office and all just a short stroll from the development.

Audlem also has plenty of places to eat, drink and meet the friendly locals with a Cafe, a Deli and three first-rate pubs in the village alone.
