    We choose self-catering accommodation for – location, comfort and convenience. If a place adds style and character that's a nice bonus. The Dragon's Den ticked all the boxes handsomely! It's a very clever (and totally self-contained) loft conversion above the owner Mike's bungalow. The accommodation is spacious, light, airy, and very thoughtfully furnished and equipped. The large living area is welcoming and comfortable, with two big leather sofas plus matching armchair, TV, loads of books, CDs, a classy chess set plus other games, and three drawers full of tourist information. The kitchen is dinky but has everything you need for a week. There's a thoughtful supply of kitchen essentials for people like me who manage to forget the teabags. The fridge was stocked with milk and butter, and there was a crusty loaf on the workbench. Much more useful than the usual little packets of biscuits! The bathroom is a good size, with a bath and separate shower cubicle, and lots of fluffy towels, and some sachets of shampoo in case you have forgotten that as well as the teabags. The two bedrooms have comfy beds and there's plenty of storage space. The décor is cool, clean, stylish, with some very attractive modern oak furniture. It's also quirky, with sloping ceilings (and floor), beams, and a lot of little dragons hiding in the corners. It's near a busy road, but well set back. There's a good bus service from just round the corner into Chester, but Mike's information sheet includes instructions for a very pleasant walking route, along quiet, leafy avenues and lanes. We hadn't visited Chester for twenty five years, it hasn't changed much, still a lovely city. But to see it at its best, avoid Saturday afternoon / evening – unless you appreciate aspiring Footballers' Wives unable to stand up reliably on their heels, let alone walk, and young men with a taste for extreme hairstyling and noisy cars. The rest of the week it's a very civilised place to wander around and soak up the atmosphere! Thanks to Mike for making us feel welcome and at home. We hope to return.

About the location

CHESTER

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.
