Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car not necessary
  • No pets allowed

Driftwood is situated on the River Dee, next to the Old Dee Bridge. It is a beautifully refurbished fisherman`s cottage with stunning ever changing views out of all but one window, which allows you to feed the ducks while you are having breakfast. Downstairs fully fitted kitchen with granite worktops, sitting and dining area, wood burning stove, and shower room. Spiral staircase leads to mezzanine with wardrobe and occasional single bed and the main bedroom with king size bed and TV plus en suite toilet and washbasin. Outside there is a shared patio and steps leading down to river.

It is simply the best of both worlds, being in the village of Handbridge a conservation area, with its award winning butchers, deli,newsagents and 4 pubs all on your doorstep. A stroll along the river footpath leads you to the meadows an ideal place for a picnic, complete with cows. Not many city centers can boast that. Alternatively a two minute walk over the bridge and you are in the city center where there is something for everyone including Cathedral, shopping on the famous "rows", restaurants, nightlife, art galleries, museum, the beautiful Grosvenor Park with its summer open air concerts and activities even a Roman amphitheater the list is endless. The world famous Chester Racecourse is a five minute stroll (ten minutes in stilettos) add to that the many festivals through out the year. No matter how many times you visit Chester you will always discover something different.

A car is not necessary but if you want to go further afield, we are on the boarder of North Wales with beautiful scenery, mountains, beaches, walks etc. Chester Zoo, the Blue Planet Aquarium and Cheshire Oaks outlet village are also nearby easily accessible by car or bus.
