Property Description

Driving through richly wooded grounds on our mature 27 acre estate the traditional whitewashed country house is set among carefully tended lawns and gardens. In this rural setting there is plenty for those wanting relaxation. If you prefer the bustle of City life, the hotel is 10 minutes from the heart of Chester and only 5 minutes away from one of Britains largest shopping outlets Cheshire Oaks.Set in a rural location there is plenty for those wanting relaxation or if you prefer the Hotel is seven miles away from the hustle and bustle of city life. The city of Chester has a breathtaking heritage stretching back to the Roman times. Among its great treasures from the past are the most complete city walls in Britain, the unique famous rows of medieval shopping galleries, the 900 year old cathedral and the oldest horse racing regatta in the country. The many restaurants, bars and street entertainers will satisfy the most discerning visitor. Quite what turns a good hotel into a great one can be difficult to understand. Often it comes down to the subtle differences like the service you receive or the food served. At Craxton Wood, we believe the calibre of both marks us out to be something special.
