Around Millmoor Farm

Millmoor Farm offers "Experience Breaks" giving everyone the chance to see and get involved in some of the most exciting and rewarding events in the Farming Calendar!

Millmoor Lambing Experience.
sheepFsheep_2rom the 1st January until the 1st March, why not enjoy an out of season break to see the unique experience of watching lambs being born. You can view the ewes throughout the day and evening and even help feed the new born lambs etc.

Please note, for medical reasons, this is unsuitable for women who are pregnant.

Please contact us for further information on these new Breaks

There are plenty of things to do without leaving the farm!

We have a children's play area and you can see any of the animals - all you have to do is ask us. You can even help us feed them and look after them.

There are many footpaths and bridleways - just ask us for a map.

Please see the ideas below or in the menu on the left.

Cholmondeley Castle Gardens (just 5 miles away)
Romantic gardens, rambling woodland walks around the lake and a children's farm and play area make this a great family day out. There's a full programme of events throughout the year, too.

Cheshire Ice Cream Farm
Not only 30+ flavours of wonderful creamy ice cream, but also a tea room, farm shop, gift shop, animal corner and indoor and outdoor play areas!

Candle Workshops
Try your hand at making your own candles! - or just buy some of the lovely ready-made candles.

Beeston Castle
Perched on an outcrop above the Cheshire Plain, Beeston Castle was a built in the 13th century, by an earl of Chester. It is a stiff walk to the top, but the views make it all worthwhile. The crag on which Beeston sits shows the power of the ice sheets that once covered Cheshire - one side has been gouged into a steep cliff, while the other is a more gentle slope, making it a perfect place for a fortress.

Crocky Trail (Waverton, Chester)
This is quite unique! - an adventure trail that is a cross between a playground and an assault course, set in the middle of Cheshire fields! Kids just love the challenges it sets them - working out how to get round, under and through the mazes, swings, slides, bridges and tunnels exercises the brain as well as the body!

Grindley Brook Locks
A set of staircase locks on the Shropshire Union Canal make for interesting viewing of the boats as they drop below the main road. There's a good café and delicatessen at the locks, too.

Hampton Springs Fishery
This is a lovely fishery just a couple of miles away. It has 12 acres of water across 8 lakes, with a great variety of coarse fish. Plenty of car parking and a café make this a fisherman's dream!

Malpas Yesteryear Rally
Every September, traction engines, tractors and old vehicles of every description are on display. You can see craft displays and exhibitions of how things used to be done. It's a great day out!
