The Heart of England/Peak District

Chester is a great base for exploring the region: rural Cheshire has many family attractions from country pubs to ancient castles, craft and antique centres. Visit Liverpool's famous Albert Dock and take a step back to the Swinging Sixties at the world-famous Cavern Club.

Travelling west for just one hour will take you to the striking Welsh mountains and beautiful coastline. This is a superb base for a varied and enjoyable vacation at any time of year!


Halton House is within walking distance of Chester's celebrated city centre taking a pleasant stroll along the Shropshire Union Canal. The neighborhood is a leafy residential suburb which is well-served by local bus services and has local pubs and small shops within easy reach.

Chester centre is steeped in history and the original streets laid out during the Roman occupation still form the heart of the city. The Roman walls and amphitheatre are the backdrop to a wealth of unique architecture including Elizabethan town houses, medieval churches, and the famous medieval shopping “Rows”.

There's an abundance of fine bars, bistros and restaurants to please every taste and budget. In the summer months visitors' can enjoy a picnic in the park or a rowing boat trip along the picturesque River Dee.

A fantastic day out at 'Chester Races' can be enjoyed at the 500 year old Roodee race course which also hosts show-jumping events and Polo matches.

Places to visit, things to see and do, festivals & events in and around Chester are far too numerous to list here but we will gladly help you plan an exciting itinerary for your stay.

Lovely spacious house in a great location. Only 20 mins walk along the canal into Chester, or the bus leaves from directly opposite the house. Would highly recommend to anyone.

"Excellent home from home in a beautiful city."

Came away for a weekend break; lovely property, excellent location to the city centre, very low cost if using taxis. Fully furnished with well kept rooms, beds were beyond comfortable. Amanda (owner) has a massive folder with details for everything you could need in the house or where to visit and how to get there.
Amanda was really helpful providing me with information before our stay and the process of booking was very simple and straightforward.

Will definitely be returning as there are more places I would like to explore. Highly recommend.

"Lovely warm comfortable House ideally placed to explore Chester"

A really comfortable house which is much larger than it looks from the outside. Excellent facilities including heating, powerful shower in main bathroom & free Wifi.

A 25 minute walk to the city centre along the Canal or a frequent bus service during the day made it an ideal base to explore the lovely city of Chester.
