    Wonderfully peaceful fantastic setting and beautiful surroundings. A great getaway and the barn is luxurious and comfortable.

The property

This lovely wooden barn is located in Malpas, one of Cheshire's prettiest locations, dotted with striking black and white timber-framed houses. Perfect for couples, this delightful retreat has been set-up as studio accommodation, laced in pastel colours, with all-round comfortable living. Accessed by open-tread steps, the interior feels spacious with an elevated ceiling and large picture window overlooking the scenic countryside with distant views of the welsh mountains.

The studio houses a modern shower room with underfloor heating and a separate stylish kitchen complete with bold blue units and wooden countertop for an effective finish.

The living space is divided between a cosy lounge, also featuring a dining table, perfect for a romantic meal after the sun sets and a bedroom area with a king-size bed and freestanding wardrobe.

Breakfast can be eaten on the east-facing balcony if the weather permits, and you will look forward to returning home after exploring the area and preparing those delicious meals, before simply relaxing in front of the TV.

Alternatively, why not enjoy a game of table tennis in your leisure time, or stroll over to the delightful meadow area which houses a precious shepherds hut, a cosy snug with a woodburner to warm those cooler evenings or barbeque in the fire pit on warmer summer nights.

There are several pubs in the village and a number of excellent ones in the area as well as good quality local shopping.

Malpas also hosts a regular Farmers’ Market, and without doubt the town's treasure is its church, built from rich red sandstone with examples of fine medieval work.

Malpas lies within the shadow of the Bickerton Hills, close to the Sandstone Trail and on the Cheshire Cycleway.

There are some wonderful walks direct from the barn and the hosts can also point you in the direction of some good cycle routes.

Bangor on Dee race course is within easy reach and walking in North Wales can be accessed within an hours drive.

An excellent base for exploring Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales.
