No Mans Heath, which is known locally as Nomansheath, is a village in the unitary authority of Cheshire West and Chester and the ceremonial county of Cheshire, England. It lies two miles east of the village of Malpas and north west of Whitchurch, Shropshire. Originally on the A41 road, there is now a bypass. Bickleywood is a very small settlement about 1 km to the east.

There is no church in the village, due to the proximity of the church in Tushingham but there are The Wheatsheaf Inn, a non-conformist chapel (disused) and a small telephone exchange (which was called Noman's Heath in the days when exchanges had names) in close proximity to one another.

The southern section of the Sandstone Trail 30-mile footpath passes just east the village, while the 200-mile Marches Way footpath passes just south. The Sustrans Regional Route 70 cycleway passes through the village, running out from Malpas.

Just over two miles east of the village is the 19th century Cholmondeley Castle and gardens. Just to the north is the well preserved Iron Age hillfort of Maiden Castle, spectacularly sited above the Dee valley.

The Whitchurch and Tattenhall Railway used to pass within a kilometre of the village but the nearest station was Malpas railway station which was nearly three kilometres away and actually in Hampton Heath.
