Eastham is cited as one of the oldest villages on the Wirral Peninsula and has been inhabited since Anglo Saxon times. The name derives from its location, 'ham' (home) situated to the east of Willaston, which was then the principal development.
The development is ideally placed off the A41 with speedy access to the nearby M53 and M56 motorways, and their routes to the vibrant cities of Chester, Liverpool and Manchester. Eastham Rake railway station is a short drive away and is on the Liverpool to Chester line via Birkenhead and Hooton. There are also bus stops in the village for the X8 bus which runs between Chester and Liverpool. The development location makes it perfectly placed for commuting, shopping and nightlife.
Eastham itself has all the amenities you would want from a village, such as cafés and pubs, a deli, hairdressers and takeaway. The nearby village of Bromborough offers a selection of supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Just up the A41, the Croft retail and leisure park hosts a cinema, chain restaurants and high street retailers.
The surrounding area has a plentiful supply of places to visit. Eastham Country Park has 100 acres of woodland, offering peaceful walks, birdwatching and orienteering. Historic Port Sunlight is home to beautiful architecture, a world-famous art gallery and a fascinating museum.
For those with children, Heygarth Primary School has a good Ofsted report as does the Bethany Day Nursery. There is a choice of secondary schools in the area including South Wirral High School and Wirral Grammar School for boys and girls.
Eastham is a fantastic choice of location, blending both character and convenience.
