Where you’ll be

Chester, United Kingdom

The locale is a quiet village with a lovely pub, The Royal Oak, (just 300m away) serving food, well worth a visit. The Swan pub is at the far end of the village.

There's a general store that's open late and a Co-op in nearby Broughton. A 5 minute drive away is the village of Dodleston and The Red Lion, a quaint gastro affair in a lovely setting.

Just a 10 minute drive away is the historic Roman city of Chester and we're 5 minutes drive from Broughton retail park, which has all the usual shops and restaurants (open until 11pm) including an M & S Food Hall and an IMAX multiscreen cinema.

Plenty of walks and open spaces to enjoy with some spectacular views across the Cheshire Plain. Of course, we're also in a prime position to travel through Wales, en route to Ireland or up to The Lake District.

Further along the motorway is the vast retail complex of Cheshire Oaks, the Blue Planet Aquarium and the fabulous Chester Zoo.

If you need dining recommendations, inspiration or guidance on where to visit, the best route or circuit and what there is to see and do, please ask - we'll make sure you make the best use of your stay in the area.

We have a cosy home with four rooms available (One of which is ensuite, another is a fully self-contained studio apartment the remaining two access a private bathroom) in a pretty, rural village called Higher Kinnerton, which is just inside Wales and a 10 minute drive in to the beautiful, historic city of Chester. I am semi-retired and live with my wife Carol. We've worked, lived and travelled in many countries and find that being a host on Airbnb brings a little bit of the world to our door. If you enjoy a comfortable and private stay but may also like socialising and open spaces, you'll fit right in. I have designed and built all of the features in our home and combined ideas, materials and technology we've encountered on our travels; comfortable beds being at the top of the list!

You can take yourself off for some peace and quiet or mix it up as you wish; we love the social side of having guests but completely respect your privacy.

All our guests can make use of the newly refurbished conservatory, gardens and meadow. The garden features a Safari Hut with lights and a heater. There's also a fire pit by the gazebo with swing seats and lights, a perfect place to chill out day or night. (Griddle some sausages or toast marshmallows!)

We'll be around to help in any way you wish.
