Lovely house good location.
We had a very nice stay at the blue door. The house was clean and in a great location for a five minute walk in to Chester which has a vast array of shops and lots of character. Also nicely situated for a walk on the walls or along the canal side or to Chester racecourse. The train station was about a 15 minute walk , there?s a very nice pub just outside the station which was handy for a quick breakfast before catching the train. Much easier to catch train to Liverpool than drive, train fares very reasonable too.

The Blue Door
The house was very clean and perfectly placed to go to Liverpool and very close to the centre of Chester, the canal and the wall around Chester .We were based 5 minutes from an extremely nice pub that served lovely meals, Telfords Warehouse. Coming from living in a bungalow it was good exercise going up and down the stairs! Chester was a really sweet place to visit and again a couple of nice pubs called The Pied Bull in the centre of Chester and The Cellar, 5 minutes from the station were also recommended for food and atmosphere. The surrounding countryside was very scenic and if you get the chance to go a little further a field Snugbury's ice cream parlour was an amazing taste explosion! All in all a very relaxing holiday and plenty of room for 4 adults.

Very nice house, everything you would want and a short walk to the city walls and canal. Cheap and easy transport to Liverpool so dont need a car. Only down side was parking for one car.

Great town house
We had a lovely week at the Blue door, the house is immaculately clean and warm. And only a very short walk up the hill to the town centre which is such a lovely place to visit. Lots of restaurants close by you don't need to drive anywhere. Parking at the blue door is for one car only which was great for us as most of the week it was only my husband and myself. Our son came to visit us for the weekend and found free parking on the next street along but this is not available during the week, although there is a pay carpark by the railway station 5 minutes away. We never fully found out how to work the Apple T.V. as there was no instructions but this was our fault as we could have asked. The Wi-Fi was great and very fast. Please remember when you visit to bring everything you need to start you off i.e. salt/pepper milk dishwasher tablets etc but if you forget the shops are so near it?s not a problem . I loved cooking in the large kitchen but couldn?t cook lasagne or casserole as we couldn?t find an oven dish to cook this in, however there is oven trays and pots and pans so all good. We had a lovely week in a lovely house in a lovely town. We would very much recommend this property

Home from home
Having stayed a few times around the Chester area, at various other locations , and to varying degrees of satisfaction, this is by far and away the best we've been to . The location is superb , with short walks to all the interesting parts the city has to offer . Having young children, I was looking for something that would not only be well located but give us the comfort we would get in a quality hotel ....it didn't disappoint . Tony, the owner , was very welcoming and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was what we wanted. The property itself is excellent , clean and spacious, as well as having every thing you would expect in a modern home. The kids felt like they were at home and were really sad to leave. We are hoping to visit the city in early summer and will make this our first choice...
