A Victorian Welsh Congregational Chapel, solidly built and now converted into apartments, one on each of the three floors. There’s a car park directly opposite and you can walk to everything – endless beautiful shops (this is WAG central) cafes and restaurants. The City wall is 100 yards away, a mini Hadrian’s Wall which you can climb up and walk along for city views. The river Dee has intriguing walks along its banks – and more places to eat.
You let yourself in with an entry code to find light and bright spaces, not cramped, with good sized bedrooms and hanging space, photos of Chester on the walls and open plan living rooms and kitchens. In the top two flats you come across the odd archway or part of a stained glass window to remind you of the bones of the building. The ground floor apartment has a small patio area with heaters.
Shop till you drop, brush up on your Roman history at the Grosvenor Museum or just people-watch in the cafes. You’ll return to much comfort and warmth, a pub round the corner and restaurants and cocktail bars aplenty. It’s also deliciously quiet considering how close to the action you are.
