Why stay here ...

Our quiet CL is located about 4 miles from Malpas which is a picturesque village deep in the south Cheshire countryside which still retains its Norman motte and bailey castle. 

Egerton Manor Farm is convenient for The Sandstone trail which is a 55-kilometre (34 mi) long distance walkers' path.

Malpas is a great base for exploring Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales. 

Malpas also hosts a regular Farmers’ Market.  

Our local pub The Cholmondeley Arms hosts regular quiz nights and Jazz sessions and serves good home cooked food. Adjacent to Cholmondeley Castle, the Cholmondeley Arms is probably one of England’s most unique pubs. It sits inside a former Victorian village schoolhouse on Lord Cholmondeley’s estate. Dating back to 1862 the school was converted in 1988 and it was the first public house on the estate for over a century!The old schoolhouse was converted into a village pub pub and still maintains many of its original features.

Timothy looks forward to welcoming you to his CL.

chill out time

What a beautiful site! Just returned from a long weekend here. Not far off the A49 to get to it but enough to be away from noisy traffic. Timothy and Ivan made us feel very welcome. WC and shower were a great extra for a CL and very clean and shower instantly hot. Pitch was level hardstanding with decent access for our 4 berth down a gravel driveway. We have no motor mover but had no problem pitching. Site was full while we stayed and obviously popular. Loved strolling with our dogs around the fantastic gardens with lavender and fruit trees you have to see to believe.A small fishing pond is tranquil and a good spot to relax on the bench. A family of moorhens inhabit the pond and they have a dove cote full of beautiful white doves. We also saw goldcrests while we walked in the gardens. There are bullocks in the field at the back of the site but apart from the mooing were no problem. We walked the dogs down the lanes locally which only get the occassional tractor coming through. We were amused by the robot lawn mowers which look like mini Bugatti Veyrons, the dogs weren't so sure! Water suppy,bins and WC waste just across the lawn near shower/WC. Great spot for nipping over one border to Wales and the other into Shropshire. We explored Malpas,Llangollen, Whitchurch and Market Drayton. All in all a peaceful weekend break. We will definitely return.

GREAT CL.

We have been to Manor farm several times over the past couple of years and have just returned from another great weekend. The owners and very welcoming and the CL is in a really quiet and peaceful location. The gardens are wonderful and the CL is very well maintained. There is ample space for caravans to park and there is a large grassed area where you can also park, should you choose when the weather is dry. The toilet and shower are both clean and tidy and well maintained. This CL is close to the Cholmondeley Arms out which has a great menu, great selection of drinks and the manager even gave us a lift back to the CL on Saturday evening. Definitely worth a visit. The CL is also away from any sources of light pollution and as we discovered on Thursday evening when the sky is clear you have an amazing view of the stars and moon. Overall a great stay and we plan to return again very soon. Many Thanks!

Heaven on Earth

This site is in a beautiful part of the world, and Tim and Ivan immediately made us welcome, and showed us around the site. We had a lovely pitch overlooking fields, and the gardens are absolutely stunning. We found the robot lawnmowers very entertaining! We loved the "shed shower" and "shed loo", both of which are great. The site is located in an easy place to make a base for the surrounding area, and the nearby village of Malpas and the Cholmondeley Arms are lovely and well worth a visit. Tim and Ivan made us very welcome and at home, and even shared some spare plums from their tress - lovely. The site is very peaceful, and we had a fantastic week, and left refreshed and rejuvenated. We cannot recommend this site enough, and will definitely be returning in the near future.

Good but could be GREAT!!

Just returned from our weekend at Manor Farm. I echo all of the previous reviewers comments. The gardens and site are kept immaculate. We had to do some serious manoeuvring to get on the last remaining pitch (we don't have a mover). There are trees which encroach on the pitches too which reduces the space available. There were 6 vans on site all weekend although the one next to us left Saturday and a replacement pitched on the field where we were told we couldn't pitch on our Friday arrival :-( Prices were also put up by £4 a night to £20 due to Dogfest at Cholmondeley Castle, we were pre warned but our neighbours said they were not! As my title suggests this is a good CL but could be a GREAT CL if the pitches were spaced out more into the adjoining field which it seems is used as and when. There would then be loads of space for the 6 caravans!

Friendly site in beautiful countryside

Had a really enjoyable stay at this site recently. The site is on the owners large estate, which has a beautiful pond and formal gardens. The area is peaceful and the owners are very friendly. You are surrounded by trees and fields, lots of nice walks and good pub nearby. The only downside is the field is too small for 5 vans to be comfortable - you are VERY close to next van esp if you are the middle van like us - the end ones are OK (ask for an end pitch). There is an empty field next to it and it's a shame vans can't go on here as would make the site perfect! The shower cubicle was really good, but the toilet was in a shed and I didnt feel this gave enough privacy as was next to owners house so people back and to a lot around it and walls very thin if you know what I mean! It could also be locked from outside too! and just needs a few more toilet rolls in there. Toilet and shower very clean though. There were some dogs off leads and the owners need to just remind people that they should keep them on leads so that they don't bother other people and other people's dogs. All in all though a lovely place, friendly owners, peaceful and great walking around and about - we will definitely be back.
