    How to get there
    On the edge of the Chester leg of the Shropshire Union canal, this is a great location to access the City centre, as well as local attractions such as Chester Zoo and the Historic Race Course. Access to the cottage is simple via main roads into Chester, Rail (with direct 2 hour trains from London), or by canal (Hoole Lane Lock No. 5, Chester)!

    The cottage is well placed and a short walk to Chester rail station. Which is along the canal path and then City Road (by Harkers Arms). Liverpool is around 1 hour in one direction and Manchester around 1 hour 20 minutes in the other. During the week there is also a fast 2 hour train direct into London.

We stayed a week, fabulous cottage, everything was provided for, there was even a bottle of wine on the table and a vase of flowers, a lovely touch, close to cafes and walks and a small village for essentials, and an easy walk along the canal to Chester centre. The pork pies from the bakery in Hool are really worth... more

Very atmospheric. Well-equipped and extremely comfortable: we felt most welcome. The books and maps about the locality and about canals were greatly appreciated.... more
