  • "Fantastic Opulent, comfy and practical."

    Location is great 5 min walk to the centre of Chester and lots to watch on the river.

    Thank you Sheila for your feedback which we always love to hear. Edgar House really is situated in the best location in Chester. Property Owner

  • "Stunning house in the perfect location."

    Everything you could need was catered for, from toiletries, detergent, to condiments in the kitchen. Loved the decor and the huge blackout curtains in the bedrooms meant we weren't woken early by the light (something which I often find an issue when staying in other properties). The pictures on the website don't do the size of the property/rooms justice. It's huge! Couldn't ask for a better location with views of the river and a 5 minute walk into the city centre.

    We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay at Edgar House enjoying all that it has to offer both inside & out. We love how our guests get that extra element of surprise & wow factor when they arrive at the house when the see how big the property actually is in real life! Property Owner

  • "This property was absolutely beautiful, immaculately clean and excellently presented."

    Everything you could possibly want for your stay was at hand. Caroline met us on arrival to show us around and provided us with bread milk butter etc and her amazing millionaires shortcake.We had family and friends staying with us and there was ample space for everyone. The bedrooms all equipped with en suite facilities, safety deposit box, ironing board and flat screen tv all rooms had an individual theme. The beds were super comfortable. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need and the 2 dishwashers were great.The cinema room and games room were well used. The garden was well laid out and we would like to possibly return in the warmer months to take advantage of the garden area and views from the balconies. We were central to all the restaurants and town centre within a couple of minutes walking. I would like to definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for that bit of luxury and relaxation. Caroline was on call if we needed any assistance but we didn’t everything was provided for. Also parking was brilliant no worries there. Excellent property thank you so much

The property

The luxurious holiday home of Edgar House sits in the heart of Chester, Cheshire, atop the ancient Roman Walls overlooking the magnificent River Dee and weir.

The property enjoys a central location with many bars, restaurants, cafés, shops, the famous racecourse and Grosvenor Park just a short stroll away, making it the perfect setting for a large family of 16’s self-catering break.

Internally, Edgar's exquisite interiors offer a wonderful blend of tradition, bold, contemporary design, and conveniences.

It’s a wonderful place for family get-togethers, with a beautifully furnished and contemporary open-plan living space, perfect for entertaining in the evening, thanks to the Smart TV and Bluetooth surround sound, as the designated chef cooks up a storm, utilising a wealth of quality appliances along the way.

Take dinner outside to the spectacular garden patio, once described by renowned travel writer Alistair Sawday as “Chester’s equivalent of the Royal Box”; there is plenty of external seating to sit back and savour your favourite drink whilst listening to River Dee flow by.

After dinner, why not retreat to the cinema/TV room and enjoy a movie on the large Smart TV, or to the games room, a fabulous space enjoying a Bluetooth jukebox, and a range of entertainments, including darts and table football.

Alternatively, you can settle down in the library/snug and curl up with a captivating book.

When you’re ready to catch some sleep, there are seven well-presented en-suite bedrooms, spread over two floors, accommodating up to 16 guests.

Three of the bedrooms have super-king-size beds and four offer zip/link beds for added flexibility.

One of the rooms, the family room, has its own private lounge area with a double sofa bed – as well as a freestanding copper bath; ideal for those seeking a little bit of privacy away from the larger group!

Chester has been dubbed "the jewel of the North-West of England," and one of the most fascinating aspects of the city is that it contains remnants of every period of history, from Roman walls and amphitheatres to medieval churches, Elizabethan and Georgian architecture, to Victorian restorations and 21st-century buildings.

The city has a lot to offer visitors, such as superb shopping in and around the renowned Tudor 'Rows' and delightful strolls along the historic, Roman Walls, alongside the River Dee, and through the beautiful Grosvenor Park.

Tour Chester Racecourse, spend the day at the world-famous Chester Zoo or wander around the breath-taking cathedral.

The spectacular Welsh highlands, including the Cader Idris and Eryri (Snowdonia) ranges, the seashore, the picturesque market towns and villages of Cheshire, and the Wirral Peninsula with its world-class golf courses are all within easy reach.

For a truly spectacular getaway for all the family, in a marvellous location with riverside views, choose Edgar House.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £1000.

About the location


Liverpool 17 miles; Manchester 36 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 townhouses 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.
