    “Booking was easy.”

    We received an email from Nikki the owner, explaining how to get there, where to park and the situation with the keys (in a combination locked key box next to the front door). There is a lay by opposite the cottage for loading and unloading only, but you can park 10-20meters down the road. This wasn't a problem at all. The cottage itself was clean and cosy. A lovely open planned living room/dinning room/kitchen with a very small walled back yard with a small table and two chairs. The owner left ...

    We received an email from Nikki the owner, explaining how to get there, where to park and the situation with the keys (in a combination locked key box next to the front door). There is a lay by opposite the cottage for loading and unloading only, but you can park 10-20meters down the road. This wasn't a problem at all. The cottage itself was clean and cosy. A lovely open planned living room/dinning room/kitchen with a very small walled back yard with a small table and two chairs. The owner left some food essentials (if you can call a bottle of prosecco an essential!!) including a wonderfully fresh loaf of bread. There was also tea bags, ground coffee, tub of humus, milk and butter. We stayed from a Tuesday through to a Saturday, and although we didn't spend much time in the cottage we wanted for nothing. The WiFi was adequate, the beds and bedding high quality and comfortable, the bathroom with full complement of towels, toilet roll and cleaning and some shower gel and shampoo. This is not a modern, hi-tech accommodation with power shower etc, but so well presented and maintained, and with so much character and charm that you felt relaxed as soon as you entered. Malpas itself is small, but The Old Fire Station is definitely worth a visit, as is the Fish and Chip shop and the local grocers. There is also a co-op. The pubs were all still closed for covid and there was another restaurant in town which we didn't try, but looked really nice. Chester was only 30min away, and there looked to be plenty of walks, if not in the direct area then certainly near by. We went for a wonder along the River Dee where apparently you can spot a Kingfisher and Otters early in the morning. Overall a lovely cottage that fulfilled all our needs for our short break.

About the location

MALPAS

Tarporley 12 miles; Chester 15 miles.

Malpas is a charming village deep in the south Cheshire countryside, home to Norman Motte and Bailey Castle, as well as a medieval street pattern. There are ample shops in the area, together with hotel and guest house accommodation, and scattered holiday cottages can be found tucked away in quiet parts of the town, or in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Without doubt the town's treasure is its church, this is built of rich red sandstone with good examples of fine medieval work. Malpas lies within the shadow of the Peckforton Hills, is close to Tarplorley and the Delamere Forest, with Tilston and Tushingham being within easy reach. There is access to Chester races or Bangor on Dee race course, several golf courses and fishing. It is good cycling countryside and boating is one of the pleasures of the nearby Shropshire Grand Union Canal. Cholmondeley Castle and Garden, is well worth visiting, one of the regions top tourist attractions.
