Edgar House Gallery
Edgar’s super luxurious and quirky interiors offer a wonderful blend of tradition, bold contemporary design and modern comfort.
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 16 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 and can be used as a family room if required with two children on a sofa bed.
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.

OUR Chester GUIDE – The Very Best of Chester
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 in a unique and contemporary design, and certainly has the wow factor…All of the bedrooms are en-suite and all are large. There was no fighting over who got the best bedroom, they are all fantastic. The large L-shaped kitchen/living/dining area is a great space where we could all comfortably enjoy each other’s company…The picture and sound in the cinema room are of high quality and that was a nice place to go and get some quiet time to watch some Christmas movies. The games room was also a nice place to escape to, particularly for the younger members of the group. The house was in the perfect location for us...In short, a stunning property in an enviable location - we absolutely loved it.Paul J
“Edgar House exceeded all of our expectations. Although we knew beforehand that it is in a super location overlooking the river and close to the city, we could not have imagined its stunning interiors. Every single room was a delight. The choice of decor, furnishings and fabrics are wonderful. It was wonderful to have such a well equipped kitchen. A weekend was not enough. I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Edgar House made a special birthday spectacular.”Helen E
"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
We were all blown away by Edgar House. The refurb has been done beautifully. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were and the quality bedlinen! As a group with ages from 5 - 80 everyone had space whether playing air hockey in the games room, reading quietly in the library or watching a movie in the cinema room - perfect. The kitchen was well equipped and the chefs among us found everything they needed. There was plenty of tableware and two dishwashers so we didn't run out. (Grandpa fell in love with the coffee machine and ordered one for himself!!) The location couldn't be better - everything was walkable. Chester is a wonderful City, fantastic choice of restaurants and great shopping. The fitness enthusiasts were able to run every day along the City wall and even ran to Wales on occasions!!Jenny D
“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
