Cottage
The cottage has been freshly decorated and carefully furnished to create a comfortable home from home in a quiet residential area convenient for Chester city centre. It sleeps up to 4 guests in one double and one twin bedroom. Guests have free access to the cottage wi-fi and exclusive use of the off street parking bay immediately in front of the house. We offer short breaks from 3 nights and longer stays up to 14 nights. It's unlikely that we would be able to accommodate a longer stay as we use the cottage regularly ourselves. Our usual changeover days are weekdays, although sometimes we can offer weekend arrival days, particularly outside of the peak holiday season in July and August.

About the neighbourhood
Chester is a beautiful old English city with a unique walled centre. It’s in North West England on a loop in the river Dee. The city is rich in history from its days as an ancient Roman port to its medieval buildings which give the city centre its uniquely English character. These buildings now house a wealth of shops, cafes and restaurants, making Chester a great place for a weekend city break. Chester is also home to the UK’s number one zoo, set in award winning gardens and a short drive or bus ride from the city centre. Baker’s cottage is in an Edwardian terrace in a quiet residential area with a wide mix of housing stock as you might expect in an area convenient to a city centre.
Getting around
The Cross, which is generally accepted as marking Chester city centre, is 0.8 miles which, at average walking speed is about 15 minutes from the house. Although it is easily walkable, we appreciate that guests may not want to walk after a long day's shopping or late at night and in that case we recommend using one of the reasonably priced and reliable local taxi firms (we provide their phone numbers in the cottage).
