Why Melanie Warburton chose Chester

The high standard of finish at the House at Waters Edge is often commented on by the guests. We have made sure the house has everything you need for an easy and comfortable stay. The locations is great for the central shopping and cultural area. I have three properties, the oldest of which is #1 on TripAdvisor for Chester and this house is not far behind.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5/5

A really lovely property which has been furnished to a very high standard. Everything needed was provided and there was a much appreciated welcome pack of food. Access to the house and gates was clear and there was extra parking nearby if we needed it. Chester is a great city and we had a great time here. The owner was very helpful and flexible allowing us to stay a couple of hours longer on check-out day as no one was going in straight after us. Thank you!

Loved this place!

Can't say enough nice things about this property. The location is great, close to town, shops and restaurants. Melanie was very helpful with answering my many questions during the booking process. Loved watching the ducks from the windows. If I was back in this area, I would stay here again.

We rented the unit for a guys trip across the pond to attend The Open. Loved the history and true English feel of the old walled city of Chester.
