    The property was in an ideal location for us and we were very happy overall. It was well decorated, comfortable and helped to make our stay in Chester a good experience. The bottle of wine in the fridge was much appreciated and there was plenty of tea, instant (but not real) coffee, and other items such as cooking oil condiments, etc. It appeared clean and tidy on arrival, although we subsequently discovered a few items under bed and sofa which the cleaners had not tidied away, which spoilt the impression a bit. The facilities were generally very good, however the gas fire in the lounge wasn't working (notified to us a few days before) and this was a bit disappointing as it featured in the pictures on the website and would have been a nice focal point on the cold evenings. The central heating worked well and we were not cold, indeed too hot at times because a number of the radiator valves were not working so couldn't easily adjust the temperatures. The rear patio area is very small and completely paved over so some dog owners might not be happy with this. The rear outside light was broken, and also the ventilator/extractor in the lounge was not working. The kitchen lacks an air extractor over the cooker/oven and a couple of times the alarm went off as we were cooking. The schedule for refuse collection needs updating (the 2017 schedule was still in the property folder) We would have appreciated a cafetiere or something to prepare real coffee. The printed directions for getting there were Ok, but it is likely that clients will also use Satnav; we weren't notified that Water Tower street was closed (and has been for some time) which confused the system and we took some time to find the property. When we left we forgot a dressing gown but the owner found it (after the cleaners had denied it was there) and it was returned to us promptly - good service and much appreciated. We had a significant concern with Sykes' representatives who, although polite at all times, adopted a rigid policy of refusing to speak to my wife without my permission citing data protection issues; this is patent nonsense when dealing with relatively trivial issues and annoyed us.

The property

This beautifully-presented mid-terrace cottage is set over three floors, and is located close to all attractions right in the heart of Chester.

Great care and attention has been taken to ensure that this is a warm and welcoming property for guests to enjoy, and is an excellent base to return to after a busy day of holiday making.

On the ground floor you will find a well-equipped and spacious kitchen, leading through to an attractive living and dining area with leather seating and wooden floor.

The main bedroom is located on the first floor together with a modern stylish bathroom, and a generous landing area complete with a large comfortable armchair which can be used as a single sofa bed, the perfect place to curl up with a good book.

The single bedroom is located on the second floor.

French doors lead off the dining area to a lovely quiet walled patio area complete with table and chairs and a BBQ, ideal for cooking up some locally-sourced produce.

Stepping out of the front door of this cottage you will find all that Chester has to offer; you could take a morning stroll along the canal, hop up onto the historical Roman walls, or marvel at the choice of shops, pubs and restaurants that are just waiting to be discovered.

If you have time, be sure to include a visit to Chester Cathedral, perhaps take a boat trip along the beautiful River Dee, and for animal and nature lovers no trip to Chester would be complete without a visit to Chester Zoo or the nearby Blue Planet Aquarium.

For days out North Wales and the Peak District are both within easy driving distance.

Whatever time of the year you chose to visit, you’ll be sure to love this delightful cottage.

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.
