With the exception of the bathrooms, every room has a flat screen TV. Netflix is available in the living room. There are DVD players in the bedrooms. Power shower in all three bathrooms and bath with shower in the main bathroom. The House at Waters Edge sits on the Shropshire Union Canal, so enjoys great views, peace and quiet to the front and a privileged gated courtyard and parking at the rear. Five minutes walk to the race course, and a short stroll into the city centre along the walls, the tow path or the main road. There is no need to drive as everything in the city is within easy walking distance. Late check out may be available on race days - just ask to check. The owners also have two other houses listed with Holiday Lettings. The River House (Home ID 167690) and, next door to it, the new Riverside Apartment (Home ID 5521353.) All properties sleep up to 6 adults, with at least two bathrooms and two parking spaces. Chester has plenty of events to enjoy from Food and Drink festival to the Races. Good golf around Chester and Hoylake on the Wirral and a great base for the Open Golf in Southport. Chester itself is full of wonderful shops hidden in the Tudor rows, good restaurants, museums and great connections to North Wales, Liverpool and Manchester. A wonderful place for family or friends to enjoy the beautiful city of Chester and surrounding area.More

The King Charles Tower is where King Charles I watched the Battle of Rowton Heath and it is sited as the most impressive tower on the walls.Chester is the capital city of Cheshire. Once a Roman city, Deva, evidence of Roman occupation can be seen at the nearby amphitheatre, the walls that surround the city and the many archaeological finds in the museums. The centre of Chester is an an architectural feast with Roman, Saxon, Tudor and Victorian buildings and sites...
