  • “We stayed at Glenwyllan for the weekend, 3 couples celebrating an anniversary and birthdays missed due to the pandemic.”

    A super house, comfortable and clean with great facilities. There was everything we needed in the kitchen, plenty of space throughout and we even managed a sit in the lovely garden. Just a 20 minute walk into Chester. We’d have loved to stay for longer. Would certainly recommend to others, so glad we found Glenwyllan.

The property

Within a short walk of the centre of the Roman city of Chester, sits this wonderful period property, Glenwyllan, arranged over three floors and boasting beautiful features.

Suited to a family or a group of people looking to enjoy the sights of this ancient settlement, this four-bedroom house provides gorgeous accommodation.

Enter through the front door and be immediately greeted by the original Minton tiled floor, leading you to the first room at the front of the house; the sitting room.

A feature fireplace sits centre stage alongside the Smart TV, so you can spread out on the plush sofas and log into your Netflix account to enjoy a relaxing evening in after a busy day.

Beneath the high ceilings with classic cornice coving, move to the next room for a quiet moment, designed as a media or games room, it makes for a great place to wind down, whether you find that solace in a book or a video game.

Continue your journey and find the stylish kitchen with a country farmhouse vibe thanks to the homely wooden table where the whole party can gather around for a special occasion, with a delicious home-cooked meal prepared in the amply equipped kitchen and utility room beyond containing a host of appliances.

Enjoy lunches outside in the enclosed back garden where the pups can run around on the lawn as you set up a feast on the picnic bench when Chester is enjoying some sun.

As well as the ground-floor shower room which holds a sparkling and large double shower cubicle, when you head upstairs to the first floor there is another bathroom holding an original claw foot roll-top bath dating back to around 1902 and in wonderful condition, so you can take pleasure in having a hot soak in the evening.

Also on this first floor are three bedrooms, with two attractive double rooms with vibrant feature wallpaper and a master king-size featuring a pretty brass bed frame, large bay windows overlooking the front and benefiting from an en-suite shower room as well.

The final room and completing this grand interior is the twin room on the second floor where you can pull up the blind on the velux window in the morning to flood the sunlight in to wake you up to another exciting day in this ancient city.

Begin your journey around Chester with a walk around the Roman walls, a fantastic way to see so much of the city including the beautiful River Dee, the canal and the racecourse.

Walk under the famous Eastgate Clock and hop off to wander inside the incredible Chester Cathedral and marvel at the architecture and history.

Indulge in some excellent shopping within the Grosvenor Precinct where a host of your favourite retailers are based, or take a short drive or bus journey over to Cheshire Oaks Outlet Village for discount designer stores.

A visit to Chester wouldn't be complete without a great day out at Chester Zoo, with new exhibits, rare and endangered animals, talks by Zoo Rangers and advertised feeding times, this attraction is not to be missed.

Glenwyllan is a homely and historic abode enjoying a fabulous location in Chester.

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.
