Our magnificent Regency property in the heart of the Roman city of Chester is perfectly situated atop the ancient Walls, overlooking the magnificent river Dee. Chester’s many city centre attractions, including the famous racecourse, theatre, cathedral, shops, bars and restaurants, are just a gentle stroll away.

Chester’s world renowned zoo is a short drive away. Further afield, stunning Snowdonia, the Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire, the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, Liverpool and Manchester are all within easy touring distance…

Edgar House Luxurious Open Plan Lounge

Full Details

Edgar’s super luxurious and quirky interiors offer a wonderful blend of tradition, bold contemporary design and modern comfort, and since we refurbished the property it has been featured in various magazines.

The fabulous large open plan kitchen, dining and living space is perfect for entertaining. Relax in the cosy library / snug or play until your heart is content in the fun filled games room (air hockey, table football, darts and a juke box).

Enjoy a night at the movies in the wonderful cinema / TV room, which is equipped with Sky / BT sport and internet connection for streaming your favourite films from your Netflix or Amazon account.

Edgar’s modern kitchen is gorgeous and very well equipped. However, if you don’t feel like cooking we will recommend some of Chester’s best restaurants (see our Guide to Chester) or introduce you to one of our amazing private chefs who will cook up a treat for you “at home” at Edgar!

Seven luxurious ensuite bedrooms sleep up to 14 people. Three of those bedrooms have super king size beds and four offer zip/link beds for added flexibility. One of the bedrooms (the Copper Suite) has its own lounge with a small sofa double bed, taking the maximum house capacity to 16 if required.

In summer months dine outside on Edgar’s spectacular river view patio, once described by renowned travel writer Alistair Sawday as “Chester’s equivalent of the Royal Box”. There is plenty of outside seating to eat, drink, sit back and relax whilst listening to the river Dee flow over the tidal weir.

Chester’s world renowned zoo is a short drive away. Further afield, stunning Snowdonia, the Welsh mountains and coastline, the quaint market towns and villages of Cheshire, the Wirral Peninsula with its first class golf courses, Liverpool and Manchester are all within easy touring distance.

Where to find us


“Just about the best location.  The whole house is stunning - better than a home from home!

For an oldie Granny like me to share it with three generations of family - playing games in the Games Room, watching a film in the Cinema Room and eating and laughing in the elegant Dining Room - was the best holiday ever!”

Margaret C

"We stayed at Edgar House for my friends 50th Birthday, what a delightful, stunning property this is. Everything was just perfect from the location, bedrooms, ensuite, lounge and kitchen area, downstairs cinema room to the outside seating area.

I cannot recommend this property enough it was superb for a special celebration and I would definitely recommend and look forward to returning."

Rachael P

"Given the photographs on the website, we went to Edgar House with very high expectations. It’s fair to say that this stunning property exceeded those expectations. It has been tastefully refurbished and certainly has the wow factor.

There was no fighting over who got the best bedroom, they are all fantastic. The large kitchen/living/dining area is a great space where we could enjoy each other’s company. The cinema room was a nice place to get some quiet time to watch some movies. The games room was also a nice place to escape to, particularly for the younger members of the group. In short, a stunning property in an enviable location - we absolutely loved it."

Paul J

"We were lucky enough to book Edgar House for a corporate drinks reception evening in the Summer of 2023, and we were not disappointed.

Edgar House matched our clients brand and requirements perfectly. We brought in a catering team, and external bar company and flowers throughout making the most of the fantastic, light and modern communal spaces, alongside utilising the outdoor space for games and conversation in the sunshine. The team at Edgar House treated the booking with the utmost care throughout and the event was a huge success."
