  • “We have stayed at the studio before so all was as expected nice and quiet looking out onto trees and garden which was very relaxing.”

    Just as a note - there were no dishes with lids to enable anything to be heated or cooked in the microwave and also the said microwave was sat on top of the fridge freezer which for somone that is just under 5 foot - to high to use safely.

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.

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.
