Why Live in Timperley?
Nestled in the desirable Greater Manchester borough of Trafford, the village of Timperley is one of the North West’s top locations to settle down.
Positioned on the scenic Bridgewater Canal and within the town of Altrincham — voted the Sunday Times’ “Best Place to Live” 2020 — Timperley has everything you need for you and your family to lead the life of luxury you deserve. Find everything you need to know about your new home, below.
A Tight-Knit Community
One of the greatest benefits of living in the bustling village of Timperley is that you can always rely on the community to have something exciting planned.
Timperley’s fantastic sporting events take place at Timperley Sports Club, which hosts matches from the local cricket, hockey and lacrosse teams. Timperley FC, one of the area’s largest junior football clubs, also regularly play matches here. Altrincham & District Athletics Club, which has been running for more than 50 years, is also located just a 5-minute walk from Bakers Court.
Outside of the outstanding sport offering, the community comes together on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays for Altrincham’s outdoor market, and Tuesday to Sunday in the market house. The market is one of the finest foodie hotspots in the North, featuring everything from farm fresh eggs you can take home and scramble to bao buns you can tuck into straight away.
For a delicious evening drink, Bar in the Village provides an excellent cocktail selection that you can enjoy with friends and family or a choice of locally sourced beers to quench your thirst. Plenty of traditional Northern pubs also exist in Timperley, including the Stonemasons and Hare & Hounds. These fantastic locations allow you to enjoy a pint of lager while socialising with your friends and neighbours, ensuring you really feel at home in the village community.
Step Into Nature
The buzzing community is only one of the exciting aspects you’ll have available to you when moving to Timperley. On days when you fancy escaping to a green retreat, nature is never far from you. The iconic Dunham Massey Hall and Gardens are less than 15 minutes’ drive from Bakers Court, making a day out at the National Trust site a necessity.
For a wander slightly further afield, Tatton Park is less than 20 minutes away by far and provides endless views and greenery. If you want to catch a glimpse of some stunning wildlife, it is also home to a deer park filled with fauna that is sure to leave you feeling relaxed and renewed.
An Identity Of Its Own
Timperley has the best of both worlds. Boasting the larger, luxurious housing seen in many Cheshire villages and the friendly communities that are so common throughout the county of Greater Manchester, Timperley has formed its own identity as a unique and desirable place to be. Its mix of shops and supermarkets, as well as small independent bars and restaurants (including the mouth-watering family-run Little Italy Timperley), mean that Timperley has an atmosphere unlike any other village.
Everyday Life In Timperley
The day to day routine in Timperley is one that you can settle into with ease. Timperley has its own stop on the Greater Manchester Metrolink line, making travel around the region as simple as hopping onto a tram. A direct route to Manchester Piccadilly from Timperley also makes the area ideal for commuters, providing easy access to giant Manchester businesses such as Boohoo, UKFast and The Co-op.
For your children, Timperley’s education offering is excellent. Wellington High School is rated good by Ofsted and is a five-minute drive from Bakers Court, so returning home for family time is quick and easy. Little ones are sure to love Willows Primary School, also highly rated. Timperley also benefits from being in the catchment area of the prestigious Sale and Altrincham Grammar Schools, known for their commitment to children’s development. Fantastic transport links to Manchester also means that students who want to save on city-centre accommodation costs can commute from home to Manchester University or Manchester Metropolitan.
Busy families will also enjoy the easy access to all the essential amenities that Timperley provides. Sainsbury’s, Co-op and Iceland all have branches in the village, meaning fresh and delicious groceries are always at hand.
