Farmhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
The Farmhouse Wing is set in a beautiful location on the Cheshire/Shropshire border on our working Beef and Sheep Farm. We have lots of other animals on the farm, including pigs, hens, horses, sheep dogs, geese to name a few. We enjoy allowing our guests to get up close to the animals and allowing them to engage in farm life ie collecting the eggs, feeding the baby lambs, helping feed the calves their milk. For this reason, we have lots of families returning year after year for their annual holiday. We also attract couples wishing to get away from it all and have a peaceful break but in a great location for Chester and it's many attractions.
Farmhouse Wing his is a completely self-contained part of the old farmhouse, that has been modernised throughout. The farmhouse dates from the 17th century, and has all the interesting features and architecture you'd expect from a house that dates from the time of Oliver Cromwell and the English Civil War! There is a lovely inglenook fireplace with modern log burner stove in the lounge, which has the original oak beams.

The Heart of England/Peak District
South Cheshire is gentle, rolling countryside - a real patchwork of villages and fields. You wouldn't guess you're so close to Chester. It's quiet and peaceful, and is situated at the top of the Welsh Marches. Still a farming area, it has many small businesses tucked away in between the farms.
There are plenty of local facilities, including shops selling an excellent range of top-quality foods. You can buy a selection of them from us at Millmoor Farm - but if there's anything else you need just ask us for advice. Rare breed meats, free range eggs, top-quality local cheeses and lovely local jams and preserves - we're spoiled for choice!
Although all the major supermarkets deliver direct to the cottages, why not try our local foods for a change? - it will make your stay at Millmoor Farm all the more enjoyable and memorable. You can help yourself to the foods we sell at any time - there's an honesty box at the back door of the farmhouse.
The Wheatsheaf Inn in No Mans Heath is under a mile from the farm. It's a traditional English country pub, with great home-cooked food and a good selection of draught beers.
Malpas is a lovely little town just minutes from Millmoor Farm. It is set high up on a sandstone ridge with a picturesque church and castle mound. There are great views over the Dee Valley into Wales, Cheshire and Shropshire, just yards from the High Street. There is a newsagent, post office and town small supermarkets (both stay open until 10pm), plus a farmshop, bank, café, restaurants, pubs, gift shops, pet shop, electrical shops and grill works. Millmoor Farm is also on the Marches Way footpath and we have even designed two circular walks to do on our farm. The sandstone trail is about a mile away and we are also situated just off the Cheshire Cycle Route. There are several National Trust properties to discover in the area, including Erddig and Little Moreton Hall. However, the main reason people love this area is to visit Chester and all it's attractions, particularly Chester Zoo and the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm. A real must for families.
