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.

    This is a beautiful and comfortable house but is very inconvenient. There are not enough bathrooms - one lovely en-suite shower room in the master bedroom and one other bath/shower room for everyone else, 8 others in a full house, though there is a loo leading off the kitchen. One bedroom leads off the ground floor twin with a staircase that is frankly hazardous at night, and hazardous at all times for children. The bedroom it leads down to either has to use these stairs at night to get to a loo or go outside and back into the kitchen through a back door, so you can’t lock the house at night. This is less than clear on the agent’s description. The agency website also doesn’t mention there is no mobile phone signal at all and that the broadband doesn’t work if more than 3 people try to log on at the same time. You have to read the reviews to find this out. We also had to wash table knives halfway through a meal as there was only one each provided. Incredible in a house that has so many luxurious features. The house really needs a more honest description on the agent’s website.

    This is a lovely house in a stunning location. Looking out of the windows onto the garden was just a dream. The house is well equipped for large parties, we celebrated my father’s 100th birthday there, it was the perfect location for this. All in all we had a great week and we loved that it was a little off the beaten track and you could truly relax and unwind. It is definitely a place I would book again.

    A superb home set in an idyllic location. Old Castle Mill is one of those places that, once there, you don’t want to leave. Well appointed, clean and beautifully furnished, this home makes a magical venue for a special occasion or a memorable family holiday. Highly recommended.

    Excellent property, the house was beautiful and was finished to an excellent standard, it was perfect for our get together. Tesco will deliver to the house which is fab as it’s pretty rurual but peaceful and gorgeous countryside around. Andi was a great host, only small thing I would say is make sure you don’t park on the gravel hill as I almost got stuck and didn’t see the notice about not parking there until too late.
