Chester City Centre

The historic City of Chester is situated in the beautiful county of Cheshire - which shares borders with Shropshire, The Wirral, Lancashire and North Wales. Chester is positioned on a sandstone spur on the River Dee.

The City of Chester has a varied and fascinating history and can claim to be the only British city with such well preserved ramparts, there is a two mile walk around the original red sandstone Roman City Walls. The shopping centre of the City boasts its famous two tier shopping rows and has bars and restaurants set into the arched cellars of the buildings.

Wharton Lock Holiday Apartment is a short walk along the canalside path from the city centre of Chester. The canalside walk takes you past The Old Harkers Pub with its Real Ales and Ciders - fantastic to wash down one of their wonderful meals - the sliced roast ham, eggs and chunky chips is not to be missed!

A visit to Chester could include a day out to the world famous Chester Zoo, a boat ride on the River Dee, a meal on the Hotel Canal boat, a walk in the beautiful Grosvenor Park, a picnic in "The Meadows" by the River Dee or simply an icecream while you sit in The Groves, watchingh the ducks and swans play on the river.

"A Ray of Sunshine"

This apartment smacks of the professionalism and pride of the owners, Sandra & Graham, in wanting to provide a special holiday experience to those of us who are are lucky enough to rent Wharton Court. No I'm not a relative. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, well equipped and with bales of all the holiday information you could possibly require. Chester Rows are a 15 minute walk along the canal path where you will receive an escort from the resident mallard population. The apartment also provides a perfect base, with access, within a 5 minute drive, to all countryside routes and the endless tourist haunts.

Thank you for your wonderful comments! We are so pleased you enjoyed staying at the apartment. We look forward to hearing from you again. Sandra and Graham

"A first class apartment"

We stayed at this apartment for two weeks and could not have asked for better facilities. The place was spotless and we could not find any faults with it. It is well placed for visiting Chester city,being just a short walk along the canal path.We used public transport to visit Liverpool and surrounding areas.The furnishings were most comfortable, I would not hesitate to use this apartment again. Our thanks to Sandra and family for a most enjoyable stay.

"Fantastic Apartment with everything you would need for a break"

This apartment is gorgeous with everything you would possibly need. The owners made us feel very welcome and were really helpful. They sent detailed instructions before we arrived, which were great. The apartment is in a perfect location on the canal in Chester City Centre, and is a lovely ten minute walk into the main shopping area, past some lovely restaurants and pubs.

Thank you for the very nice review, we are please you enjoyed the apartment.

"Excellent Apartment"

This was our second stay at this apartment. It truly deserves the Gold Award that it has received. Apartment is well furnished and has everything that you could need during your stay. The centre of Chester is just a 10 - 15 minute walk along the canal path so no hassle of parking your car in the city centre. It is also ideally situated to visit North Wales and Liverpool. We took the train from Chester to Liverpool, just £4.50 for an all day ticket allowing you to get on and off the train at as many destinations as you want.

Thank you for your lovely review, we are pleased you enjoyed another stay at the apartment. At the beginning of November we are updating and renewing the apartment (as we do each year) so next time you will be able to enjoy the new Hypnos beds (as by appointment to the Queens residences) together with a new lounge suite ..... so more for you to enjoy next time!!! Thanks again Sandra and Graham
