Welcome to alderford

Nestled in north Shropshire, bordering Cheshire and Wales, we are a small family run business, always looking for ways to innovate and grow.

alderford is a great place to meet with family and friends, whatever the season. The lake is surrounded by countryside with designated walks for visitors. We have a lakeside café that, like the Alder tree, provides shelter, warmth and comfort. And it’s in here that we share our love for good homemade food and favourite Shropshire and Cheshire produce.

Rob & Christina.
