Just over the Welsh border, sandwiched between Chester in England and Wrexham in Wales, is the countryside village of Rossett. Though trains have stopped running to Rossett, the village can be easily accessed from the flat roads to the north and east, or from the mountain roads that travel to Rossett from within Wales.
Rossett's history can be traced back to the Domesday Book, which mentions the building of the village's first mill, the Lower Mill, 1086. An Upper Mill was built in 1474 and both still stand to this day, having undergone renovations over the years.
Another piece of Rossett history still stands in the form of Trevalyn Hall, which records suggest was built in 1576 by John Trevor III.
Rossett is an attractive little place with a country market held at the church hall every Saturday. Self-catering holiday cottages in Rossett and the surrounding countryside are the perfect base for a hill-walking or cycling holiday, as well as being within reach of local attractions such as Chester Zoo and Knowsley Safari Park.
