Holiday cottages and self-catering accommodation in Chester
Look through our collection of holiday cottages in Chester and start planning your ideal getaway in the wonderful county of Cheshire, on the edge of the Welsh Borders. For a short break or a longer getaway, whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple, with a family or in a group, the historic city of Chester is an enchanting destination for a self-catering holiday. There’s so much to discover, from the city’s defensive walls to its 1,000-year-old cathedral and its Roman amphitheatre. Have a flutter at the racecourse, take a walking tour around the sights or indulge in some retail therapy – a vibrant selection of high-quality shops are housed in its unique, two-tier Rows galleries. From fine dining to afternoon tea, this welcoming city also has a vibrant food scene in which to indulge.
While you can easily leave the car behind and spend your whole break exploring the city on foot, you may also wish to book some outdoor activities beyond Chester itself. Why not sail up the River Dee on a pleasure cruise or – for the thrill-seekers among you – try some white-water kayaking? For walking, cycling or a treetop adventure, head to Delamere Forest, 11 miles away, and let off steam or simply enjoy the oasis of peace and quiet. For family activities, take the children to see Europe’s largest collection of sharks in the Blue Planet Aquarium, 6 miles away, or the 20,000 animals in the world-renowned Chester Zoo, 3.5 miles away.
