Additional amenities & feature info
The house is full of little details that make this more of a home than your normal holiday accommodation: organic cotton, pocket sprung beds, a selection of books and games, a cosy fire, a double oven, fresh herbs in the walled garden, and a liberal scattering of paintings and curios make the River House a very pleasant experience. Fresh Egyptian bed linen and towels are provided. There is a welcome pack on arrival. The house is stocked with kitchen essentials such as oil, condiments, herbs, tin foil, cling film, kitchen roll, tea, coffee, sugar. Perfect for a family to stroll along the river and feed the ducks or enjoy the music on the bandstand. Great for an extra special romantic break with all the luxury of a boutique hotel. The perfect treat for a group of friends on a weekend away, enjoying the shops and restaurants. The ideal base for a to relax and get ready for a special occasion such as a graduation, a family wedding or christening in Chester.
