The Blue House in Malpas

Welcome to The Blue House. Set on the site of an exclusive and operational leading stud farm, the property can be found in the charming village of Bickerton, surrounded by no less than 64 acres of beautiful Cheshire countryside. A truly rural environment, the far reaching views are simply stunning, and accompanied wonderfully by the countryside sounds of a horse’s neigh, and small dogs roaming free. The cottage itself is beautifully furnished and traditional in style, with an open plan living space and bright and airy bedrooms. The picturesque village of Malpas is around a 10-minute drive from the cottage, and is home to several pubs as well as good quality local shopping, and a regular farmers’ market. Tarporley, with its vibrant high street and independent shops, can be reached in around 20 minutes, and as one of the country’s prettiest villages, is well worth a visit. The historic walled city of Chester with its whole host of visitor attractions can be reached in around 30 minutes. Aside from Cheshire towns and villages, the location also makes a perfect base for exploring the visitor attractions of Shropshire and North Wales, with the popular beach resorts of Rhyl, Prestatyn and Talacre all within an hour’s drive. Other nearby attractions include both Chester and Bangor on Dee racecourses, Delamere Forest, Cholmondeley Castle and Gardens, Peckforton and Beeston Castle, and the Shropshire Grand Union Canal. The Sandstone Trail, one of the finest and most popular long distance walks in North West England, can be picked up nearby, as can the Cheshire Cycleway. Finally Bolesworth Estate, home of Bolesworth International Horse Show and CarFest North, is just a 10-minute drive, offering a fine selection of year round events. Shop 4 miles, pub and restaurant 1¾ miles.
