Before setting off on your day of exploration, head to kitchen’s breakfast bar to grab a morning coffee before preparing a fry-up for the family, all while watching the kids play with the dogs in the back garden through the floor-to-ceiling windows, perfect for a summer’s day of sunshine to warm up the room.

Upon waking, be sure to grab your bikes from the shed and cycle past the River Dee, where you can see ducks, waterfront restaurants and even occasionally an orchestra playing on the band stand. Stop for an ice cream and head to the front of the river where you can hire a variety of boats to float across the river and take in the scenes of the quaint town.

Hidcote is a lovely property, just a short walk from the action of Chester’s city centre, perfect for the whole family to relax and rejuvenate.
Chester has quite rightly been described as 'the jewel of the North-West of England'. Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of the city is that within a very small area there is evidence of every period of history - from the old walls and amphitheatre of Roman times, through medieval churches, Elizabethan timber-framed townhouses and Georgian terraces, to Victorian restorations and 21st century architecture. The city has much to offer the tourist, including excellent shopping in and around the famous Tudor 'Rows' and lovely walks along the Roman Walls, beside the River Dee and through the picturesque Grosvenor Park. Explore Chester's beautiful medieval cathedral, visit Chester Racecourse or spend a day at the world renowned Chester Zoo. Further afield, the stunning Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire and the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, are all within easy touring distance, whilst frequent rail services make Liverpool, Manchester and the North Wales coast readily accessible.
