Hale Village is situated north of the River Mersey and just 2 miles from Liverpool John Lennon Airport and around 9 miles from Liverpool City Centre. It is renowned locally for it’s beautiful thatched houses, picturesque agricultural land and for the Childe of Hale (John Middleton 1578 -1623) who was said to be 9 feet 3 inches tall. His cottage and grave are both located in the village.
Although only a small village, Hale has a lot to offer visitors. There are plenty of walks to enjoy. The Trans Pennine Trail which runs through Hale Village is popular with cyclists and hikers and offers visitors the opportunity to explore the village after which a nice place to wind down is the Childe of Hale pub situated in the heart of the village serving food daily. Further down towards the shore line is the Hale Head Lighthouse which is now a private residence but is a good starting point for a leisurely walk along the coast line.
Hale hosts it’s own carnival every year in June in Hale Park where there is plenty for families to enjoy. The park itself was originally part of Hale Hall which was sadly demolished.
Hale has amenities such as a Post Office/Grocery Store, Pharmacy, Hairdressers, Newsagents and a Restaurant. It really is a unique place to stay whilst being close enough to Liverpool if you wish to go sightseeing. You are sure to see some wildlife. There is even a pony sanctuary nearby.
