There is a traditional pub (5 mins walk) "The Mount" with an outstanding beer garden positioned on the riverbank and if it's gourmet food in a breathtaking location you're after, try "Et Alia" at the Red House.

Cosy cottage in excellent location

This homely little cottage for 2 is warm and comfortable, exceptionally clean, well equipped and everything is of very high quality. Don’t be put off by no parking it wasn’t a problem we parked just along the road (free) plenty of spaces. The cottage is conveniently situated for the city centre and races, just an easy 15/20 minute walk. We’ll definitely return for another lovely weekend here.

Cosy Christmas

We had booked nearly a year in advance for Christmas and decided around September to add another night this was easily sorted. Gaynor messaged us on the morning of arrival to check what time we were expected to arrive and also called us to go through some of the information we needed. Throughout the stay Gaynor was contactable and this really made us feel at ease. The cottage was really clean and Gaynor had decorated it for us which was a really lovely extra touch. This is one of the best equipped places I have ever stayed, bath robes, towels, books, puzzles, everything you could ever need in the kitchen, hairdryer and so on. This made our stay really easy as it was a home away from home. There is a full size fridge and freezer either side of the oven, a washing machine, tumble dryer and a dishwasher. We were provided with a basket of wood for the log burner, the WiFi was strong and the tv connected easily to Netflix. We enjoyed the hot tub daily and the space the cottage gave us. There was plenty of free road parking, we had no problems finding a nearby space in the 9 days we were there. This really is a hidden gem and Gaynor is a superb host. I hope we can return next year.

A Perfect Cottage!

A beautiful cottage with everything that you could wish for! Spotlessly clean and inviting, so lovely and cosy. Gaynor the owner kept us updated at all times, nothing was too much trouble at all and all the little personal touches around the cottage added to the homely feel. The bottle of fizz and cake were a lovely surprise. The hot tub was great after our shopping trip and day at Chester Zoo! Excellent location for getting into town and seeing local sites. Thank you for a wonderful few days

Perfect getaway

I have just returned from a fantastic trip to Chester, staying in this wonderfully quaint yet modern cottage. It is a short walk to Chester and only a couple of minutes to ‘ The Mount’ public house, which as the name suggests sits on high ground with views over the river Dee. Gaynor was available to answer and questions and give recommendations for dining etc. Her cottage is maintained and cleaned to the highest standards, but the highlight is the very private garden which is not overlooked by any properties, so relaxing in the hot tub is just that. In short, I can’t recommend this place enough.

Cosy and comfortable, more than you could ever need to enjoy a fantastic holiday!

Cosy and comfortable, met all of our expectations and more! Everything you would need to enjoy your stay is provided in Elv cottages. The cottage benefits from safe car parking, and a lovely hot tub! It was walking distance into the centre of Chester and there were beautiful views of the river Dee to enjoy on the walk home. Gaynor (the owner) was on hand to provide us with excellent recommendations for places to visit and places to eat... we could enjoy these places in a short drive each day. Overall 10/10 experience and we would highly recommend to everyone.

Just wonderful!

I didn't expect this to be honest and when I say this,it's because it is extraordinary!The personal touch in every little thing that the cottage offers is truly amazing and you can see that the owner went above and beyond to make the guests at home! It is a home far from home that makes our holiday perfect!
