Description from owner

Description

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

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

Parking outside 20mins. On street parking off Eaton Rd is a 2min drive 10min walk near collage, or at Grosvenor Arms pub prior arrangements with landlady Pat. also 2 park in my drive schemes

Train station 10 min taxi ride.
Nearest Airport Liverpool or Manchester


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.

Absolutely fabulous cottage can not fault anything it's stunning from the minute you walk through the door. Every thing top notch. Really done to a high standard. Bed really really comfy didn't want to get out of it. Great shower and all the extra touches wine, chocolates, bread milk tea coffee.

“Perfect holiday cottage.”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2016

What an absolutely amazing cottage Driftwood is! I had the most perfect stay in this delightful cottage and I can fault nothing! It is beautifully furnished and decorated to a very high standard. The thought that has gone into providing everything you could possibly need is fantastic. Betty and John have carefully thought of utilising every space and I loved it all. The bed was incredibly comfortable and to wake up every day and look out over the river was a memory I shall cherish. Every morning I opened the window in the living area just so I could hear the river rushing by and the ducks quacking. Every day a couple of herons would perch on the rocks opposite and there were many cormorants drying their wings. Perfect location for walking into Chester. I grew up in Chester and will always regard it as home and now I have found the perfect bolt hold here.Thank you John and Betty.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for that lovely review we are so glad you enjoyed the cottage and its surroundings.So glad you enjoyed your time there and hope you can comeback soon. many thanks John &Betty
