  • "High standard of decor and small attentions to detail in the cottage."

    It was in pleasant walking distance to Chester but also had very good public transport links nearby. Enjoyed the small local community of Handbridge on our doorstep and all of the amenities it offered.

The property

A lovely Grade II listed end-terrace cottage, ideally situated a short stroll from the River Dee and the Roman walls of the picturesque city of Chester.

Beautifully furnished throughout, the property has a contemporary feel mixed with period features and is ideal for families or couples who want to experience the magic of Chester.

Downstairs, the cottage offers a comfy sitting room with beautiful wooden floors and period features, and the stone floored dining room is next door, where you can relax in front of the inglenook fireplace and light the woodburning stove, or on warm evenings you can throw open the French doors and sit in the courtyard with a glass of wine.

The dining room leads onto a well-equipped modern kitchen.

Upstairs there are two bedrooms; the master suite boasts a king-size bed, superb built-in wardrobes, wooden beams and a luxurious en-suite with Jacuzzi bath and underfloor heating, a perfect place to rest your tired feet after an exciting day exploring the city.

Step out of the cottage and you can discover the delightful area of Handbridge with a fine selection of pubs serving good food, charming independent stores and Edgar’s Field, a public park with a children’s play area and riverside walks.

Within minutes you will be walking over the River Dee and taking in the views down towards the famous suspension bridge and the river cruise boats.

Leading onto one of Chester’s main streets, you will find an abundance of fine bars, bistros and restaurants to please every taste and budget.

The architecture of Chester will not fail to impress with its stunning Cathedral, Roman amphitheatre and famous Rows filled with a heady mixture of independent shops and famous names.

Don’t forget the world famous Chester Zoo which inspired the BBC TV drama Our Zoo.

With Chester being so close to the gorgeous Welsh coast and the Snowdonia National Park, there are many things to keep you entertained all year round at this charming city centre 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.
