Cottage | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 7
Award winning self catering holiday cottage on a working sheep & beef farm near Malpas in beautiful South Cheshire, just 14 miles from historic Chester.
Drovers Barn was opened in December 2010. The farm is set amongst the beautiful valleys on the South Cheshire/Shropshire Borders, and the perfect peaceful retreat for those wishing to get away from it all. As Millmoor is a working sheep and beef farm, guests may help feed the calves, collect the hen's eggs for breakfast, bottle feed the baby lambs (seasonal) and visit the rare breeds of pigs. Families are welcome and we have a play area and ride on tractors for their pleasure. Coarse fishing is also available. There are several excellent local restaurants for dining out, the nearest being the Wheatsheaf Inn, only ¾ of a mile away.
Drovers Barn has been finished to a high Four Star and is perfect for families of up to 7 people. There are three bedrooms comprising of a triple, double and master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The sitting room is located on the first floor so you can make the most of the fantastic views and the balcony. The kitchen is equipped with everything you would expect to find for an enjoyable and successful self catering holiday.
The cottages offer the perfect retreat for couples wishing to get away from it all and young families on holiday. We have designed two circular walks around the fields surrounding the cottages which have proved very popular.
The cottage sits at the entry to the farm and has ample parking in front for up to 3 cars. It is completely surrounded by farm life. There are Gloucester Old spot pigs yards away, baby lambs in the paddock surrounding the cottage in the spring months and baby calves just around the corner. 3 beautiful horses graze in a field just in front.

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.
