Located in an area of outstanding beauty, yet close to Liverpool, Chester and less than 1 hour from Manchester. Garden Lodge B&B in Irby is an ideal base for Wirral, North Wales and the North West.
The perfect location for sailing, birdwatching, golf, walking and all leisure & cultural activities close to Hoylake – Venue of the 2014 Open Golf Championship.
