Mount View has been sympathetically designed to complement the architecture of Church Street, Malpas and be part of the village community, whilst retaining privacy, space and stunning countryside views.
Malpas has a wealth of character and history as well as an active local community. It is mentioned in the Domesday Book and the village retains its Norman Motte and Bailey Castle and the ancient Church of St. Oswald’s, which is clearly visible from Mount View.
Malpas Sports Club is directly opposite Mount View and the village High Street and shops are 5 minutes walk away. There are a number of good local pubs and restaurants, also independent traders such as Huxleys the bakers and Barlows electricals along with convenience stores Co-op and Londis. There is also a regular Farmers Market held in the village.
Essential services include a doctor’s surgery, a dental practice, a chemist, an optician, a Post Office, and a Fire Station. The village also has several excellent schools including Bishop Heber High School (Ofsted Outstanding); Malpas Alport Primary School (Ofsted Good) as well as a couple of pre-schools, providing a range of quality schooling to suit children of all age groups. A number of private / independent schools are also available in the area, including the White House School (Whitchurch), Abbey Gate College (Saighton Grange) and Ellesmere College (Ellesmere).
Malpas has a strong local and cultural community, hosting an annual Festival of Literature and Music, as well as more localised events such as Mardi Gras and a Scarecrow trail. There are active Churches, a Parish Council and social clubs. It could be said that Malpas is a village full of character and period charm, yet has all the benefits and amenities of a small town.
