Pets - Dog Policy
Guests in Dairyman's Cottage, the Miller's House and the Carter's Lodge are welcome to bring their dogs to Millmoor Farm, but to ensure their safety and the safety of others, we ask the following -
- All dogs must be house-trained, and must be kept off furniture and beds. They must be well-behaved and friendly towards other dogs and people.
- While on our farm - all dogs must be kept on a lead in the farmyard and garden areas. Leads can be removed outside of these areas, but only if there are no animals in the field.
(Please note that some other farmers in the area insist that dogs are on a lead all the time they are on their land, and we ask that you respect their wishes.)
- Owners must bring everything they need for their dogs, including food, food bowls and bedding.
- A small charge of £4.00 per dog per day is made and we allow no more than 2 dogs at any one time in Dairyman's Cottage and Miller's House.
- Dogs must not be left alone in the cottages at any time unless they are in a cage.
Other pets - other pets can be brought with you by arrangement only at the time of booking.
Sorry - no pets can be brought by guests staying in either Farmhouse Wing or the Drovers Barn.
Places to Eat
We are always happy to suggest a place to eat - we have an up-to-date folder that you can borrow with details.
Here is a selection of places:
- The Wheatsheaf Inn, No Mans Heath - under a mile from the farm. A traditional English country pub, with great home-cooked food and a good selection of draught beers.
- Cholmondeley Arms, Cholmondeley - excellent gastropub using local produce
- Willeymoor Lock Tavern, Willeymoor, Whitchurch - lovely canalside pub serving good food with good beers.
- The Dusty Miller, offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere within a period building dating to the mid eighteenth century. Originally a Corn Mill, converted in the mid 1970's a lot of the original features are retained.
Malpas has cafés, pubs, restaurants and a fish & chip shop. Whitchurch has several good restaurants and takeaways.
Chester offers a complete range of cuisines and prices. Try the Onion Ring - Cheshire's own restaurant finder.
We hope that you will have a trouble-free stay with us, but we have full details of local doctors, dentists and opticians should you need any help.
