Baker’s Cottage In a nutshell:
Sleeps up to four people.
Two bedrooms: one with a king-size double bed and one with two single beds.
A family bathroom with a bath and separate walk-in shower.
Comfortable living room with open fireplace, Freeview TV and DVD player.
Smoke free environment.
Exclusive off-road parking space immediately in front of the house.
Free access to the cottage Wi-Fi.
Sorry, but no dogs or other pets allowed (apart from registered assistance dogs).

The cosy living room is a peaceful space where you can curl up on the sofa and relax after a busy day exploring Chester. The central heating keeps the house toasty and warm in Winter and you can light the fire to make it feel even more cosy.

The dining room is the heart of the cottage where meals around the large table are a leisurely, sociable affair. Here you can spread out, play board games or plan your holiday activities (you’ll have free access to the cottage Wi-Fi).

The dining room opens on to the kitchen and you can open the French windows onto the small private yard to let in fresh air on warm days.

The kitchen is well-equipped for self-catering, although you’ll soon find that Chester has a wealth of places to eat out within easy walking distance!

When you arrive you’ll find fresh milk in the fridge and a welcome tray with coffee, tea, sugar and biscuits to help you unwind after your journey.

If you want to make a quick cuppa or cook a three course meal you should find everything you need is here.

Both bedrooms are upstairs on the first floor and are pleasantly decorated and furnished with comfortable beds to ensure that you can truly relax and re-charge your batteries.

Baker’s Cottage is conveniently situated in an area of Chester known as Handbridge, on the south side of the River Dee. The house is in an Edwardian terrace in a quiet residential area away from the main road with a wide mix of housing stock as you might expect in an area near to a city centre. A short walk brings you to the local shops, pubs and cafes of Handbridge.

Most people will find the easiest and most pleasant way to access the city is on foot. From Handbridge you can cross the river by the Old Dee bridge or Queens Park footbridge which bring you to the city walls and the riverside Groves. Here you’ll find cafes, restaurants, a waterside pub, Cheshire ice cream stalls and boat trips.

From the riverside you have the option to walk along the top of the city wall right into the city centre. There are also routes through the Roman gardens and Grosvenor Park, both of which bring you to the edge of the main shopping and restaurant areas.

The city’s shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants are mainly within or very close to the city walls. The centre is very compact so you can reach most of the main attractions within 20 to 30 minutes walk including Chester cathedral. The main exception is Chester Zoo which is on the outskirts of the city and about a 20 minute drive away.

Many of our previous guests rate the convenient location of the cottage as one of its most memorable features.

If you don’t feel like walking back after a long day’s shopping and sightseeing there are regular buses between Handbridge and Chester bus station. There are also a couple of guided bus tours, although they can’t go into the pedestrianised city centre.

If it’s late at night you can get a taxi to the door from one of the taxi ranks dotted around the city centre or the Kingkabs office in Bridge Street.

You can drive into the city but parking can be expensive.

A gem of a place

By Caroline P on 22-Oct-2023

The property has a lovely feel to it and has everything you need for your stay. There''s lots of helpful tips and instructions framed on the wall in appropriate locations. The welcome treats are always welcome as are the basic cooking ingredients such as oil, herbs, salt and pepper etc. The property is in a quiet location and is very close to Chester centre. It''s a great property.

Jo was a fabulous host

By Poppy C on 26-Mar-2023

Jo was a fabulous host from the moment I booked- plenty of useful info about the house and area and she was very friendly to contact. The house was perfect for our stay- comfortable and homely. It’s in a quiet location but a 10-15 minute walk has you in the centre with so many shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from.

Beautiful home from home

By Mel W on 19-Mar-2023

Beautiful home from home within a few minutes walk of the centre of Chester. Spotlessly clean and everything you could need is catered for at the cottage. Lovely food at The Ship Inn in Handbridge. We would definitely stay at Jo’s cottage again.
