The quaint village of Caldy sits on the western side of the Wirral Peninsula, neighbouring West Kirby, and is one of the area’s most beautiful villages.
Many locations within the village provide stunning views out across the River Dee, but it is the National Trust-owned Caldy Hill where visitors and residents alike take time to marvel at the beauty stretched out ahead of them.
Caldy Hill provides panoramic views out over the Dee Estuary to Hilbre Island, and beyond Hilbre in to the North Sea. On a clear day, you’re able to see for many miles, and it’s a popular spot for both keen walkers, and those who are looking to escape for some fresh air and revitalising coastal views.
Back in to the village, the architecture of many of the buildings will leave you breathless. Much of Caldy is built from local sandstone, and as one of the region’s most affluent areas, a drive around the tree-lined and quiet streets will leave you in awe of the expansive and impressive properties.
Caldy still boasts a beautiful village green which comes alive with perfectly manicured green lawn and colourful blooms around its border during the spring and summer months. For outdoor enthusiasts, they can also join the Wirral Way in Caldy as it follows the trail left by the railway station that stood in the village until 1954.
This is a beautiful part of Wirral, and one in easy reach of West Kirby and Thurstaston. If you’re looking for accommodation in Caldy, then 42 Caldy Road Bed and Breakfast is a great option, an award-winning and family-run business that offers guests stunning views across to Wales.
A regular bus service runs through Caldy between West Kirby and Heswall, and with the Merseyrail line serving West Kirby, it provides an easy access route to the rest of Wirral, and beyond.
