Short stay: Edgar House, Chester, UK
Formerly a boutique hotel, Chester’s white-painted Edgar House is one of the city’s most iconic residences. Today this Georgian property serves as a luxury holiday home that can sleep up to 16 people in sumptuous comfort whilst overlooking the River Dee. Purchased by entrepreneur Mark Ellis in 2021, it is the first in a series of high-end properties that make up Daisy Joy Escapes, with holiday homes in Anglesey and Cumbria to follow soon.
We were given a warm, in-person greeting – a rarity for self-catering accommodation where nowadays it’s commonly self-access via a key obtained from a security box – by Caroline, the house manager, who kindly gave us a short tour of the property and explained how various things worked. Welcome folders within Edgar House provide additional information to make the most of your holiday and Caroline assured us she was only a call away if we needed anything.
The main entrance to Edgar House takes you into the top floor of this property that sleeps up to 16 people. On this floor alone, there are five generously-proportioned bedrooms, all en suite, and each with their own character. The Horse Room (Bedroom 1), with its subtle horse-print wallpaper, and The Zoo Room (Bedroom 2), with its slightly bolder animal print walls, each draw on two of Chester’s most famous attractions and have balconies with views of the city wall and River Dee below.
