The property

Chester 2 miles. A pretty, detached sandstone cottage in the tranquil hamlet of Eccleston, two miles from the historic walled city of Chester. Converted from a Grade II listed outbuilding, dating back to the 17th century, adjacent to the owner’s home, on the Duke of Westminster’s Estate, this Chester cottage was formerly a photographer’s studio and now makes a fantastic holiday base. Inside this Chester cottage is a traditionally-furnished, spacious living area with a contemporary feel, original beams and double patio doors from where far-reaching country views can be seen, plus your holiday home also offers a cosy kitchen, stylish shower room and a spacious king-size double bedroom, again taking in the beautiful views of the countryside down to the River Dee. Outside this Eccleston cottage, a rear patio and a delightful, secluded, lawned garden next to the owner’s chicken run, makes for the perfect spot to relax and unwind, and with an abundant herb garden available, your culinary skills can be put to the test. From the bottom of the garden, a gate leads across fields to the River Dee from where you can enjoy a riverside walk into Chester, with its many shops, restaurants and traditional pubs, renowned racecourse, and Grade I listed medieval battlements. This Chester cottage is ideal for walkers and those who enjoy the outdoors, as this is a fascinating area to explore. With lots of things going on in and around Chester, such as the Chester Races, Cholmondley Pageant of Power and music festivals, this is a fantastic holiday base. A very welcoming Chester cottage, ideal for couples and the perfect spot for visiting the local area.

    • “Peaceful retreat”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “From the friendly arrival until the time we left we felt relaxed and comfortable in this delightful converted studio. Situated adjacent (literally) to the burial place of the Dukes of Westminster, only two miles down a quiet road from the centre of Chester, and a quarter of a mile's walk from the River Dee we had a relaxed week here. Furniture, kitchen fittings, and amenities all of excellent quality, not too far from Sainsburys for food shopping, and with loads of places to visit in the area from Port Sunlight to Chirk Castle.”

    • “We had a great stay at this lovely, cosy cottage which is situated in a very quiet area, over looking the countryside. Cottage had all we needed for a relaxing week away, and owners Gary and Chris very helpful. Chester near, and the Cathedral is a must to visit. Plenty of places to visit which are not too far away. We will definitely go back.”

About the location


Liverpool 19 miles;

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 and around the famous Tudor 'Rows' and lovely walks along the Roman Walls, beside the River Dee and through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Explore Chester's beautiful medieval cathedral, visit Chester Racecourse or spend a day at the world renowned Chester Zoo. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire and the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, are all within easy touring distance, whilst frequent rail services make Liverpool, Manchester and the North Wales coast readily accessible.
