The property

Malpas 1.6 miles.

The Mission Room is a rural retreat steeped in history.

Once forming part of the homestead of a Cheshire farmworker’s cottage this converted Shippon and Dairy lies on the outskirts of Malpas village in Cheshire.

Close to the site of a timber-framed chapel, affectionately known as “The Tabernacle”, it was a regular local meeting place.

This ground-floor property is an idyllic escape for busy professionals, as a writer’s or artist’s retreat as well as a perfect hub for walkers and active couples of all ages; why not enjoy a romantic weekend break, or a relaxing last-minute holiday.

The seasonal gardens have been designed by Matthew Wilson and remain an ongoing conservation project to attract bees and all manner of wildlife.

Ample off-road parking enables guests to arrive with ease and get settled into this stunning abode.

Combining history and contemporary, The Mission Room is a luxury barn conversion and extension; prepare your favourite meals in the well-equipped kitchen with dining for four, featuring cupboard space and a fridge/freezer to stock up on local produce for your self-catering stay, as well as a Belfast sink, electric oven and hob.

Take one step up to the sitting room and spot the original tall, cathedral ceilings, wooden beams and exposed brickwork, where you can curl up on the sofa next to the warm glow of the woodburning stove.

Rustic beams and exposed brickwork are featured in the double bedroom, and there’s a skylight for star gazing in the king-size room with a patio door leading out to the garden.

Freshen up in the smart bathroom that adds decadence to your stay with marble tiling, sensory lights, double ended bath and walk-in shower to get ready in style.

Step outside into your very own fairy-tale sanctuary to wander the gardens, admire the luscious plant life and gather next to the pond for a picnic when the sun is shining.

Enjoy the outdoor seating area on the revived crazy paved patio providing the perfect setting to toast your holiday retreat and dine alfresco.

Meander down the gravel path beneath the developing laburnum arch to overlook the seasonal wildflower meadow.

Rainy days won't stop you from enjoying this splendid garden thanks to the external conservatory with seating in a snug space to relax with a good book and a hot drink.

Venture into the local village of Malpas to where ample shops offer the self-catering essentials and there are a range of places serving delicious food and drink including a delicatessen and a traditional inn dating back to the 16th century.

Head into the city of Chester to explore the historic walls, coliseum, and the grand cathedral resting in the picture-perfect city centre or take advantage of The Mission Room’s prime location near the Shropshire and North Wales borders or you can even travel further afield to Manchester.

The neighbouring town of Wrexham is home to the 16th-century gothic Parish Church of St Giles with its imposing bell tower and learn about the eccentric history at the County Borough Museum, while Welsh castles Chirk and Powis and the splendid Erddig House can also be easily reached from the property.

Ideal for garden-lovers searching for a peaceful refuge away from the hustle and bustle, enjoy a tranquil week away, or even a short break at this wonderful country escape.

About the location


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 traditional inns, one being The Lion at Malpas, a quintessentially British inn serving delicious food and drink, with beautifully designed seating spaces to relax in, it dates back to the 16th century and is a real gem. The area is scattered with holiday cottages, found tucked away in quiet parts of the town, or in the beautiful surrounding countryside. Without doubt the town's treasure is its church, 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.
