Chester 3 miles.
The pretty Cheshire village of Christleton offers visitors a shop, a traditional village inn serving food, an historic church and a large pond, home to the resident ducks! Just 3 miles away, the Roman city of Chester has quite rightly been described as 'the jewel of the North-West of England'. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the city is that within a very small area there is evidence of every period of history - from the old walls and amphitheatre of Roman times, through medieval churches, Elizabethan timber-framed town houses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The city has much to offer the tourist, including excellent shopping, in the famous Rows, and lovely walks within the city boundaries - around the old Roman walls, along The Groves beside the River Dee or through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, and the market towns and villages of Cheshire, are all within easy touring distance, whilst the nearby Wirral Peninsula has many splendid courses to tempt the golfing enthusiast.

Location was fantastic. Easy walk along canal to down-town Chester. Would recommend self-catering cottages to everyone. Cosy place with plenty of space. We had a wonderful time.

Nice roomy cottage with all the facilities we needed. Situation good for visiting Chester using Park and Ride and other attractions nearby. Walk along the canal to Chester about 40 mins very pleasant. Pubs very friendly and the food good.

The location of the cottage is perfect for relaxing and as using as a base to visit lots of attractions. There was lots of information for visitors at the cottage and the owners are lovely people running a fabulous holiday home. I would love to stay at this property again in the future.

Easy access to Chester, the Park and Ride was very good. The situation of the cottage next to the canal was lovely for walking. Very good pubs and restaurants close by.
