The Experience

A ten-minute stroll over the old river Dee bridge takes you from your gem of a holiday let into the charming walled town of Chester with its myriad boutique shops, bustling cafes and Cathedral. And you’re perfectly placed for Snowdonia, Liverpool and even Manchester. You step through the striking red door of this Grade II listed 1896 cottage into the hall. Branca, a seasoned traveller, has used her knowledge and flair to create a restful place to unwind: a comfy living room with wooden floors and squishy sofas in front of the fire, a smart dining room and a well-equipped kitchen where you can release your inner Nigella. All is neat as a pin and there are lots of lovely touches: hairdryers, logs for the wood-burner, Smart TV, games, books… Upstairs to three light, airy bedrooms with super mattresses, rugs on stripped floors and a neutral palette and it’s back downstairs for the spoiling bathroom stocked with Neal’s Yard goodies and fluffy towels. Outside there’s a courtyard area with barbecue and bike storage; and best of all there’s free on street parking out the back.

What a great stay we had at Overleigh Road! The cottage was cosy, beautifully thought out and convenient for all the amenities in Chester. Branca was excellent in her communications with us and treated us to a lovely welcome hamper. We will return!

What a wonderful place! To have to work away from home, particularly during lockdown, is a daunting prospect, but Branca made me feel so welcome. The beautiful cottage is spotless, warm and cosy. Biscuits, wine and fire wood were provided. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you both. I look forward to a return visit in less challenging times.

I just can’t say enough about how pleased my friend and I were with this property. Communication with Branca was very efficient and the welcome goodies and fizz were such a nice touch. The location of the house is excellent. It is just outside the centre and is a pleasant walk. We were bowled over As soon as we walked in the house. Everything is of the highest quality. The beds were incredibly comfortable and the carpet in the front bedroom was so soft! I can honestly say that there is not one thing that could be improved upon in this property. You will not regret staying here!

Karen, Nottingham

Highly recommended! Overleigh Road is situated in a quiet residential area, just a pleasant short walk to the City of Chester. Behind the dark red solid door of Number 30 awaits a sympathetically renovated Victorian Cottage, with three double-sized bedrooms, two separate living areas complete with log burning stoves, a modern kitchen and 1.5 bathrooms. Beautifully furnished, and appointed throughout with everything necessary to ensure comfortable accommodation. Your hosts Branca & John have also compiled a file of maps, events and info to interest all ages and members of the family. Enjoy!


A truly beautiful and warm home from home. Overleigh road is a picturesque walk to the centre of Chester and somewhere we all looked forward to returning at the end of tiring days out! The owners were most thoughtful. Makes me want to find another reason to visit Chester...!

Sarah, Richmond

A beautifully presented cottage with everything we needed for our stay. The owners were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were all spotless clean and the cottage itself is perfectly located for a weekend (or longer!) in Chester. I would highly recommend this property.

Sarah, Ballygally

I can't rate it high enough, we had such a beautiful stay. The cottage was beautiful and extremely clean, everything you needed was there. You are close to everything and there was a fabulous handbook provided by the owners which helped us enormously when exploring Chester. Thank you Branca and John we will certainly be returning and be recommending you to all our friends xx

Tara, Bristol

Absolutely amazing cottage very close to the city centre. One of the most pleasant nights sleep I've had in a while. Pure linen sheets! The owner had left an amazing welcome hamper equipped with prosecco! I would definitely recommend and will be staying again on our next visit to Chester

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Branca & John Pinto da Cruz

  • Explore beautiful Chester, by foot, by bike, by boat...Walk the historic walls any time, any weather, for a different perspective of the city. Tours abound - cathedral tours, ghost tours, free tours, walking tours, bus tours and, of course, Roman tours.
  • Take in a day at the races at the Roodee, the oldest racecourse in England. On a sunny day, take a seat in the Architect beer garden just over the road and hear the crowds cheer. Culture hits a new high with the 'Storyhouse' Theatre opening its doors
  • We're going to the Zoo...Chester's is the biggest and best in Europe...you need a day to give it justice but you'll be glad you did. Try Go Ape at Delemere Forest or build sandcastles on the beaches of the Wirral or North Wales, all a short drive away
  • Take a break from the sight-seeing with afternoon tea in the stunning Grosvenor Hotel, or grab a take-away cuppa and find yourself a bench in the Roman Gardens. Shop shop shop...Chester Rows, Cheshire Oaks...venture to LiverpoolOne or Manchester's Trafford
  • Chester centre is full of lovely places to dine and drink, or you can pop to Notting ''Hoole'' grab a cocktail in the stylish Suburbs, a beer in the relaxed Faulkner pub then have a feast in the Sticky Walnut or Delhi Street (best Indian in town)
  • If your boots are made for walking, try Cheshire's Sandstone and Crocky trails. The stunning Wirral peninsula with country parks and beautiful sunsets. Take in the views at Hoylake, home of the Royal Liverpool golf course, host of the Open golf tournament
