“Great property in a great location”
Reviewed 19 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

A lovely property in a great location in Chester. There property is bright, spacious and well maintained and within easy walking distance of the city centre. The city walls are literally minutes away. There were 5 adults and one child in our party and there was plenty of room for us all. A buggy and travel cot was provided as well which was great. The owner Melanie is also really helpful and available to answer any questions. We were originally due to stay in December but were unable to travel on the day due to a storm. Melanie let us rearrange until February and again until April as the train line was still closed! We really appreciated this flexibility. I would highly recommend this property and will definitely stay again on our next visit.

“Fabulous house !”
Reviewed 17 January 2016 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed in the house for 3 nights over new year , there were six adults and a child. There was plenty of room and the house was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the key was not there on arrival but this was rectified quickly. There was a lovely welcome pack left. The house is in a fantastic position overlooking the canal and within walking distance of Chester center. We liked it so much we have booked to go again.

How easy was key pickup/access to the property?

Great to know you enjoyed yourselves so much that you are coming back again. It's always nice to hear that house works so well for a family group of three generations and you had a lovely New Year. Apologies again about the key collection fitting in with your early arrival. Fortunately I'm only ever a phone call away. We shall be doubly vigilant and at the ready for your next visit in Spring - I think the baby ducklings will be trying out their water wings on the canal!

“Excellent place to stay in chester”
Reviewed 5 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

Location is great for the city centre and close to nice restaurants. The house is very nicely furnished and well maintained. We stayed for new year with family and the place was perfect for a lovely relaxing stay. It has everything you need and they even leave bits of food in the kitchen. We have just booked our second stay for March and can't wait to go back again! Thanks Melanie for looking after us!

We can't wait for you to come back! You were such lovely guests and it was so nice to meet you and your family. I'm so pleased the house worked well for you. Grandparents on the ground floor enjoying their own privacy and your family on the top floor with the bath for your little girl.
Thank you for being such considerate guests. See you in March.

“Absolutely deserves its excellent reviewa”
Reviewed 29 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

We stayed here as a family group over Christmas, and had a wonderful time. The house was in stunning condition when we arrived and Melanie Warburton (the owner) added a number of little Christmas touches - including a tree - in a way which was quite exceptional. Melanie was also very friendly and welcoming in all the booking process and her advance e-mails were very helpful.

The house itself is modern in a small enclosed mini estate in Chester - just beside the canal - as advertised. It is also just next to the City walls and therefore a very easy walk into the middle of town with all of its shops, restaurants and bars. The complex of canals, locks and tow paths around it is well worth a look round in its own right, and the Telford Warehouse pub got a very high rating from my sons. Overall it is hard to see it being better located.

All in all it absolutely deserves its excellent reviews and I would unhesitatingly recommend it.

“Girls weekend away, Christmas shopping ”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This was our second year staying at this wonderful house. There were 6 of us again this year. The house is perfect, it is in an ideal location. Close enough to the centre, yet no noise at all.
We love the fact that every bedroom has a bathroom, so there's no queuing for the bathroom. All the rooms are decorated beautifully. The beds are lovely and comfortable.
The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The house is decorated and kept to a very high standard. We will definitely be booking again.
I did contact Melanie regarding a DVD player and she responded straight away. I love how friendly and helpful the owners are.
