English Country Cottages

An inspiring collection of properties chosen for their character, luxury and heritage, all graded 4 star and above.


This spacious property is a great base for the whole family to get together and enjoy a relaxing holiday in beautiful Cheshire.

Dating back to the 1700’s and following a huge successful restoration and conversion project, Old Castle Mill now provides spacious accommodation. This detached house and annexe is set within immaculate grounds in a quiet setting, just outside of Malpas in south west Cheshire. Malpas, although an old market town, is actually classed as a large village, made up of half timbered ancient buildings, a Grade I listed church and Cholmondeley Castle. It boasts everything you could ever need from a small town, and it’s proximity to Chester, and the Shropshire and north Wales borders, makes it an excellent location for exploring several parts of the UK at once.
Visit the walled city of Chester, with its excellent shopping and nightlife, racecourse, the River Dee and the second most photographed clock in the UK next to Big Ben. Visit Llangollen in north Wales, with its horse drawn canal barges, steam railway, Pontcysyllte Aqueduct which you can canoe over, and white water activities such as rafting, tubing and gorge walking, or slightly further afield is Snowdonia. Shropshire, one of England’s most attractive counties, has plenty of places to visit, including Shrewsbury, Ironbridge and Bridgnorth. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    What a fantastic location to celebrate my mum's 60th surprise birthday with all the family. The property is beautifully decorated and clean! The grounds are well maintained and perfect for the children and dogs in our party. The water bottles, biscuits/sweets in the rooms were a lovely touch as was the bread, eggs and milk left in the kitchen on our arrival. We didn't want to leave.

    The location was beautiful, and I can’t imagine a more picturesque setting to the rear, being surrounded by streams - the dog loved it! The house was beautiful, and as a construction degree student I loved the interior design. The area was good too, rural enough to be out of the hubbub but not too far from Chester or Nantwich. My only problem was that as we used all the bedrooms and my grandfather needs level access so had the annex bedroom, my husband and I in the ground floor bedroom had to either go outside and into the kitchen to use the toilet or risk intruding on the people in the bedroom above ours and going two flights of stairs to the toilet. That was not a reason to not comeback though, and are planning to return for our tenth anniversary!

    Response on behalf of the owner; Thank you for your feedback, so glad you enjoyed your break and looking forward to welcoming you back. We try hard to make improvements to what we offer at Oldcastle Mill in response to guests’ feedback. In this particular instance, there is nothing to be done unfortunately. The layout of the bedrooms is described accurately in the property description: there is a twin room which gives access to a lower double bedroom via a dedicated staircase. The lower double bedroom has external access to the lower floor which has a cloakroom with toilet and washbasin. Access is through a tiny courtyard, no more than three or four steps outside from the bedroom trifold door to the lower ground floor French doors. We hope this clarifies things for potential future guests.

    One of the best holiday rentals I have stayed in. We stayed here for a weekend as a group of 11 women and had the loveliest time. Old Castle Mill is a beautifully kept house with gorgeous scenery, making it ideal for walks. The house itself has everything you need and all the rooms are stunning and very clean. The owner is a lovely lady. She could not have done more to make us feel right at home and the welcome gift of fresh milk, eggs and bread was a wonderful gesture. Thank you for a lovely stay xxx

    This was a perfect place for our family group of 10 to spend a weekend. The house is amazing, very comfortable and well equipped. We arrived to find muffins, bread, milk and eggs which was very welcome and Andi showed me how the Aga works (easy). I was a bit concerned before we arrived as I'd had an email after booking to say there was no Wi-Fi, but thankfully for our young people there was! The first night the heating wasn't working p but after reporting it someone came out promptly and fixed it and then it was lovely and warm. One thing to be aware of is that the ground floor double room does not have access to the ground floor without going up through the twin room.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; We appreciate your detailed review and lovely comments. Hoping to welcome you back in future. The bedroom accessed through a door from the ground floor has a dedicated staircase leading down to a double bedroom below. This lower bedroom does have access through trifold doors over a tiny outside courtyard area and into the dining room via double doors so that there is access to toilet facilities without disturbing anyone in the room above.
