The main road through the village, Chester Road (B5130), links Chester, which is less than a mile to the north, with the villages of Farndon and Aldford to the south. The A55 (North Wales Expressway) passes through the south of the village, but is not directly accessible at Huntington.

The village includes a few shops, a post office, Huntington Primary School and St Luke's Church of England Church. Recreational open spaces include a village green, Jubilee Field and the 30 acres of wetland, woodland and meadows of Caldy Nature Park.citeweb|url=http://www.huntington-chester.co.uk/home_page_1.htm|title=Huntington Village website|work=Huntington Parish Council|accessdate=3 April|accessyear=2008] [citeweb|url=http://www.clocsen.org/caldy/welcome.html|title=Caldy Nature Park|work=Friends of Caldy Nature Park|accessdate=25 May|accessyear=2007]
