“Unique house in a perfect location”
Reviewed 29 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We rented the Douglas Cottage for our Easter holiday this year, and we were very happy with that decision. The house was absolutely fantastic, like a small private castle. The hosts were extreamly friendly and helpful. The location could not have been better. It`s in the city centre 2-3 minutes walk from the city walls. Still it was quite and not a lot of traffic in the street outside. Sometimes it could be a bit difficult to park, but normally there was a free spot within minutes. I would definitely recommend this property.

“This place has the wow factor!!”
Reviewed 18 March 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We booked here after looking at the fantastic pictures on line and we weren't disappointed! Barbara and Andy greeted us with a warm welcome and a lovely welcome basket with some breakfast goodies! The place has been decorated and furnished to a very high spec and was immaculate! The attention to detail was noticeable, from lovely fluffy towels to lots of reading material about the area. A real home from home! Very comfortable! The location was perfect, just a short walk into the centre of Chester. Would highly recommend Douglas cottage and will certainly stay again in the future.

What an excellent holiday cottage find, so close to Chester city town centre and all other necessities. But the cottage itself, well it is something else and the owners should be proud of themselves for offering this beautiful, exceptionally clean, tidy and comfortable home. The extras were an additional bonus. We stayed in the cottage for 11 days and were reluctant to leave. We will definitely be returning. Thank you so much.

“BEST EVER”

This apartment was so much more than what the pictures and description show. Barbara and Andy were wonderful and greeted us upon arrival. They explained everything and showed us all the rooms. She did all the decorating and it is incredible. Andy did all the renovation and his attention to detail is amazing. You can walk everywhere and the Waitrose's grocery is easy to walk if you taxi back with a lot of groceries. We had a wonderful stay in an incredible apartment and thoroughly enjoyed Chester. This apartment is quiet which is what we like. Everything you need is provided, comfy beds and the owners are very accessible here and in person. Our security deposit was refunded in a timely manner and we thank you for such an amazing stay.
