Make the most of your Chester city break with a stay at Baker’s holiday cottage

The perfect base for exploring Chester and discovering North West England and North Wales

Our cosy self-catering holiday cottage sleeps up to four guests. When you stay here you’ll be walking distance from Chester’s historic city centre – just a leisurely stroll across the River Dee. So why not leave your car in your private parking space and explore the city on foot? And after you’ve spent the day soaking up the sights, curl up on the sofa and relax. You can make it even more cosy with a real fire. Then recharge your batteries with a good nights sleep in a comfortable king size bed.

You’ll be spoilt for choice for places to eat in walking distance of the cottage. But if you prefer to eat at home you can easily do that too. When we say self-catering we mean it – you can make anything from a quick cuppa to a three course meal in our well equipped kitchen.

We welcome bookings for short city breaks or longer stays for up to four people – the two bedrooms, one with a king-size double bed and the other with two singles, are ideally suited to a family holiday or a small group of friends on a weekend city break.
