Dragon's Den is a first floor self-catering apartment above the owner's home a mile from the centre of the historic city of Chester. There is a double bedroom and a bathroom, with an open plan living area with kitchenette, dining area and sitting area with sofa bed. Outside is off road parking for one car and shared use of the enclosed lawned front garden.

Dragon's Den is an easy stroll to the city centre with its river, Roman walls and amphitheatre, cathedral, shopping and nightlife, and also makes a great touring base for Liverpool, Manchester, North Wales, Shropshire and beyond.


Perfect relaxing week
Just like to say this place as a little gem for the price. Great communication with the owners, they were away for the weekend when we arrived but the place was set up perfectly. Lovely and warm when we got there and the place was spotless. Comfortable bed in the main bedroom and our daughter set the smaller single room up within minutes of us arriving. Lounge area was light and bright with the vaulted ceiling. Kitchen area had all you need but because it's in the attic of the house head space can be a challenge especially washing up ( my excuse to get out of doing it :)). Location is within a 10 minute drive into Chester or a 30 minute walk..... All in all we would 100% recommend Dragons Den to anyone wanting a relaxing stay. Definitely will be returning :)

Just what we needed
We choose self-catering accommodation for ? location, comfort and convenience. If a place adds style and character that's a nice bonus. The Dragon's Den ticked all the boxes handsomely! It's a very clever (and totally self-contained) loft conversion above the owner Mike's bungalow. The accommodation is spacious, light, airy, and very thoughtfully furnished and equipped. The large living area is welcoming and comfortable, with two big leather sofas plus matching armchair, TV, loads of books, CDs, a classy chess set plus other games, and three drawers full of tourist information. The kitchen is dinky but has everything you need for a week. There's a thoughtful supply of kitchen essentials for people like me who manage to forget the teabags. The fridge was stocked with milk and butter, and there was a crusty loaf on the workbench. Much more useful than the usual little packets of biscuits! The bathroom is a good size, with a bath and separate shower cubicle, and lots of fluffy towels, and some sachets of shampoo in case you have forgotten that as well as the teabags. The two bedrooms have comfy beds and there's plenty of storage space. The decor is cool, clean, stylish, with some very attractive modern oak furniture. It's also quirky, with sloping ceilings (and floor), beams, and a lot of little dragons hiding in the corners. It's near a busy road, but well set back. There's a good bus service from just round the corner into Chester, but Mike's information sheet includes instructions for a very pleasant walking route, along quiet, leafy avenues and lanes. We hadn't visited Chester for twenty five years, it hasn't changed much, still a lovely city. But to see it at its best, avoid Saturday afternoon / evening ? unless you appreciate aspiring Footballers' Wives unable to stand up reliably on their heels, let alone walk, and young men with a taste for extreme hairstyling and noisy cars. The rest of the week it's a very civilised place to wander around and soak up the atmosphere! Thanks to Mike for making us feel welcome and at home. We hope to return.

A Perfect Base for Exploring Chester and Surrounding Area
We used this property as a base from which to explore Chester and surrounding area. Excellent public transport links into town but only a pleasant 20 minute walk into town. The apartment was clean, well presented and well equipped. Lot's of useful information about the local area and tourist attractions was available. As well as board games, CD's, books and jigsaws. The owners had very kindly supplied some crusty bread, butter and milk for our arrival - very thoughtful. There is a supermarket quite close to the property.
