  • "This cottage was first class in every degree and proved very comfortable for our stay, a base for walking the Sandstone Trail."

    Our only gripe related to sporadic periods of low water pressure and an initial problem with being unable to control the temperature of the shower. However, the owners were very responsive to us reporting these issues and arranged repair immediately.

  • "Gorgeous cottage with plenty of character and a lovely spacious secure garden."

    Beautiful surrounding fields, lovely walk to the local pub. Really spacious cottage, plenty of room for 6 adults and a dog. Wonderful facilities, just what we needed. Friendly owners live nearby, but left us to it throughout our stay. Would definitely recommend.

  • "What a beautiful cottage in the perfect Tranquil countryside setting."

    The beds are so comfortable, the house is very stylish warm and welcoming and has a lovely open fire. We found the cottage very well equipped and we cooked every night including a Sunday lunch! The setting is Perfect for walking and running with a relaxed feeling of peace and quiet but so easy to get to the supermarkets or to Chester. The house sits alone in a lovely big sunny garden with a large outdoor table and chairs where we enjoyed time outside with friends. Both the owners and the housekeeper could not have been more welcoming, I didn’t want to leave and can’t wait to return.

  • "The housekeeper was very welcoming."

    She brought us some extra blankets (clean), which was wonderful, as it was unseasonably cold. It was a very quiet and relaxing break. A real “getaway from it all” holiday. Loved the downstairs bedroom. Very cosy. Thank you.

  • "The perfect "country cottage", it even had roses round the door!"

    The housekeeper was amazing and everything we needed was there, it was clean, cosy & warm and was ideal for our party of 6 adults & 2 dogs. The beautiful garden with a little stream at the side was newly fenced and totally safe for the dogs to play outside. The downstairs bedroom & en suite is ideal for elderly or less mobile guests and the upstairs bedrooms had wonderful views over the garden. The outside table & chairs was ideal for al fresco dining and from the cottage we could walk for miles along the canal or through the maize fields & country lanes. A wonderful relaxing holiday in this beautiful cottage...we will be back. Thank you

The property

Whitchurch 3 miles, Malpas 3 miles.

Resting in a rural location on the Welsh side of the bank of the brook which is the border between England and Wales, lies this traditionally-styled detached former miller’s cottage, Wolvesacre Mill Cottage.

This country home-from-home is set on the private Iscoyd Park estate in the quiet hamlet of Agden, near to Whitchurch, and makes a fabulous base for families looking to explore the delights of Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales.

Accessed down a well-made track, you enter the cottage into the kitchen, complete with a selection of appliances including an electric oven and hob, dishwasher and a handy washing machine and dryer.. Walk on through to discover the dining room and sitting room, boasting a character feel with exposed beams and an alluring open fire for cosy nights on the sofa.

Those with limited mobility can choose the ground-floor double bedroom which benefits from a generous en-suite shower room with Jack-and-Jill access to the dining room. Upstairs plays host to three other double bedrooms, each furnished in an eclectic style and with wardrobe storage. Completing the interior of Wolvesacre Mill Cottage is a large bathroom with double-ended bath, providing you with all the more reason to enjoy a soothing soak at the end of the day.

Surrounding the property are lawned areas where you can sit out for an evening drink.

Wolvesacre Mill Cottage almost adjoins The Maelor Way long distance footpath running from Grindley Brook, where it connects with the Sandstone Trail, South Cheshire Way, the Marches Way and Llangollen canal towpath, 24 miles to the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail at Bronygarth. There are plenty of local walks ideal for exercising well behaved dogs (the Cottage is within an area of working livestock and dairy farms, and so do bring a lead). Head into the bustling market town of Whitchurch or the attractive village of Malpas, and browse the selection of traditional and specialist shops before settling down for a bite at a café or restaurant/pub if you’re hungrier.

The outdoor enthusiasts of the group can look forward to plenty of walking and cycling opportunities throughout the Cheshire/Shropshire/Welsh border, particularly along the Shropshire Union and Llangollen Canals which offer charming rural waterways for much of its length.

If exploration takes you further afield then you are close to Chester, known for its best preserved medieval walls and ever-popular zoo, as well as Stoke-on-Trent, famous for its thriving pottery industry and family attractions such as Alton Towers and Trentham Estate, Llangollen for its steam heritage railway, on in to the Berwyn Mountains and Snowdonia, and National Trust properties at Chirk Castle, Erddig.or Powys Castle.

Escape to Wolvesacre Mill Cottage for that much-needed break, any time of year.
