Set on a working dairy farm, The Old Dairy is an ideal base from which to explore both quaint market towns of Cheshire and lakes and mountains North Wales.

Set in over 100 acres of farmland, on a working dairy farm, The Old Dairy offers comfortable holiday accommodation, ideal for couples looking for a relaxing break in the countryside. Located between Malpas in Cheshire and Whitchurch in Shropshire, it is the ideal base from which to enjoy the delights of both of these beautiful counties as well as being close to the border with North Wales. This former dairy, which is attached to the main farm house, has been converted into a comfortable, studio style, holiday home which offers plenty of space for two to enjoy. There is a large L-shaped living room which also serves as the bedroom with king sized bed, as well as plenty of living space in which to relax and unwind. There is a separate kitchen and shower room. As all the accommodation is on the ground floor, it is ideal for people who are less mobile. The Old Dairy has its own patio/seating area as well as parking. There are some excellent walks in the area, and there is direct access from the grounds onto Marches Way and the Sandstone Trail is nearby. For avid cyclists, the regional cycleway passes through the village. The small village of No Man’s Heath, which has a local dining pub and a well-stocked village shop is just 2 miles from Malpas which offers a good selection of shops, pubs and restaurants as well as monthly farmers’ and crafts market. Whitchurch (6 miles) has a train station and for visitors who are simply wanting to enjoy the local walks and maybe leave their car at home, the owners can arrange transportation to the accommodation. Places of interest nearby include 19th century Cholmondeley Castle and Gardens (2 miles), Nantwich (11 miles), Chester (15 miles) and Wrexham (15 miles). Visitors who enjoy horse racing can choose to visit either Chester races (15 miles) or Bangor-on-Dee (10 miles). Shop ½ mile, pub ¾ mile, restaurant 2 miles.

    Lovely peaceful cottage. We had a lovely stay there. It was great to have the welcome pack and the homemade scones were delicious - thanks!

    Highly recommended. Although on a working farmyard, it was private, quiet, and there were no dogs. The location is good for driving to several National Trust properties, as well as Cholmondeley Castle etc. From Chester Rail Station, you can get a Merseyrail Day Saver ticket for £5.20 that will get to you Liverpool (James St and Lime St) and back as long as you avoid the early morning peak. The same ticket can get you to other attractions too - Merseyrail have a good website about it.

    The cottage was comfortable and well equipped, the farmyard itself was a little shabby.

    Great accommodation, Ann had thought of everything you could need right down to a dish sponge. The wine, flowers, scones and jam on arrival where a nice surprise.
