With our own love of travel and visiting new places, our aim was always to create a home for travellers, a peaceful little haven where you can completely relax. A home which has everything you need - because when you have invested time in finding somewhere you like, spent hard-earned cash and looked forward to a trip away for a while, you really deserve not to worry about a thing. A place which would be as welcoming in our English winter than at the height of summer, and has its own little story in the history of Chester. We want you to be able to put your feet up and instantly feel at home after a day sightseeing our beautiful city, in a home that suits everyone - families, couples, individuals, of all ages, all nationalities and for all occasions. We love welcoming people from all over and one of the most rewarding elements of being a Superhost is the interaction with our guests, in person or not, it opens up the world! We are so proud of Chester, and being part of it. Walk the walls, in any weather, it gives you a different perspective of the city.
Handbridge is a beautiful village just over the Old Dee Bridge from Chester, easy walking distance to the city. It has many listed buildings of its own & some lovely walks. There are a number of good local pubs & cafes serving food, a petrol station, pharmacist, newsagents & an award winning butchers. The cottage’s close proximity to the city means you can easily explore it by foot, whether you want to shop, cruise on the river, check out the Roodee race calendar, discover the city walls with their nooks and crannies or you can even 'get on yer bike' on its many cycle routes. Discover the hidden gems within the cobbled streets & don't forget to look up. Spend a few moments people watching from the walls, wander into the shops that line its way. Stop for a cuppa or an ice cream in the Roman gardens or by the bandstand on the River Dee. Watch the boats & the world go by or feed the ducks on the weir. If you want to rest your legs, hop on & off the Open top bus tour, take a boat or canal trip. At any time of year, there are events, exhibitions, festivals, shows, markets & a host of cultural activities. Always, Chester is a beautiful place to visit.
