    “We booked Dragon's Den as it was one of the closest properties to Chester.”

    Communications with and from the owner; Michael (via email) were very good just prior to the week or so before our arrival as I needed to check a couple of things. The apartment was ready on arrival and we were extremely impressed with it. It is light, spacious, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Kitchen items included a microwave, halogen oven, numerous pots/pans, array of knives and glasses. I think there was also a sandwich maker although we didn't use it. There was a 4pt carton of semi skimmed milk, butter and a loaf of freshly sliced bread left for us which was very much appreciated. All towels, tea towels, oven gloves, cleaning items including washing up liquid, liquid hand soap in both the kitchen and bathroom, washing powder, anti bacterial spray, bleach and toilet rolls were all provided. We always go well prepared when self catering but it left our pre-packed items redundant! There was also spare bedding if needed and a fan heater and a pedestal fan. There are literally dozens and dozens of tourist information leaflets for not just Chester but surrounding areas, takeaway food menus, bus timetables and an array of books in the lounge including several on the history of Chester. Sadly we didn't get the time to read any of them. There are also books in the main bedroom, a chess set, playing cards and a jigsaw puzzle provided. Michael came to see us shortly after we'd arrived to welcome us and to run through how things worked e.g. the freesat/tv, procedure incase of a fire etc. My husband mentioned that I have fibromyalgia and can get cold so Michael said he'd turn the central heating up. I found the apartment to be nice and warm anyway so did have to turn some of the radiators down on some of the days but this wasn't an issue. Within the "Welcome Information" sheet there is also a suggested walking route into Chester which takes you through a very pleasant residential area. It took us around 25 mins to walk it but we're not fast walkers. Due to the time of year we didn't get the chance to sit out and enjoy the shared garden - there is a small patio area with chairs for your use. We wouldn't hestitate to recommend this apartment and certainly plan to try and return within the next 1-2 years. There is also so much to do in the area and also the surrounding area such as Liverpool that we just didn't fit it all in! Thank you again Michael for a great stay in your apartment.

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.
