Fantastic location. Douglas Cottage was spotless. Gorgeous cottage with every facility including wifi. Andy and Barbara were very welcoming and at the end of a phone to answer our queries. Lovely welcome basket too and shown round by this lovely couple. We would recommend and hope to be back soon.

“Unbeatable for welcome, comfort , and cleanliness.”
Reviewed 30 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Our second visit to Douglas cottage was a huge success, (first visit Dec 2012). From the warm welcome Andrew and Barbara gave us to the cosy atmosphere of the cottage everything was just as we remembered it. This being a 'girls weekend' meant we really appreciated being literally 'just round the corner' from the main high street with all the shops and restaurants, add to this cosy evenings in the sitting room and you've the ingredients for the perfect break. Our last visit being in the winter meant we didn't really get to appreciate the pretty courtyard the cottage offers - but this years late sunshine brought it into its own. I honestly feel that no one could fail to love this place - in my opinion the perfect cottage in a beautiful historic city.

“Lovely cottage, great location”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Stayed 3 nights early August. Just two of us and cottage lived up to expectations set by pictures. Great for two, OK size for 4 but would be tight on space for any more.
A lot of care and thought has gone into furnishing and decorating the cottage - much appreciated by us. It is NOT a bland holiday rental.
Lots of restaurants, bars and cafe's nearby, also lovely park and the River Dee. All easy walking.
Strongly recommend and hope to visit again.
Be aware - we found some of the restaurants we would have liked to eaten at were closed evenings Mon, Tue and Wens.
Strongly recommend the Hop on/off bus, especially go in morning when we had a superb real live guide!

“Just perfect, thank you!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Thanks to Barbara and Andrew for welcoming us warmly to your cottage. It was a perfect way to spend our last week of travels before returning to Australia. We were back home visiting Chester to see family and friends. Travelled with our two adult children and there was plenty of space for us all. Bath Street is a fantastic spot. Close to everything and it was great to walk the walls again, something Graham and I used to do every Sunday when we were teenagers. Nice to have parking at the front of the house and if we didn't get a spot in the evening after a day out, we parked around the corner and moved the car when a spot became available, which didn't take very long. The cottage was immaculate, and the basket of goodies left was most appreciated, many thanks. Lots of thought has been put into making sure you have everything you need from a first aid kit to washing powder and plenty of tea and coffee. I would recommend a stay at Douglas Cottage to everyone!

“PERFECT except the parking situation”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We had a very friendly welcome, the house was very clean in a TOP condition and ( city) location. Not cheap but it`s the money worth. This place is highly recommendable for a family with two kids.

Douglas Cottage has a superb central location within Chester City centre, few yards from all amenities and attractions eg shops, restaurants, Grosvernor Park, River Dee, Roman amphitheatre, famous rows etc. Therefore parking is by permit supplied at no extra cost ( guests must display the permit in the car windscreen )

A warm welcome awaits you at Douglas Cottage
