Navigate Chester’s ancient City walls. Seek out an Aladdin’s cave amidst the maze of bijou shops in the City Rows. But keep an eye on the Eastgate Clock! Leave yourself time to enjoy all this charming English country house hotel has to offer.
Beyond the medieval City walls of Chester, surrounded by secluded gardens and leafy grounds, lies an elegant 18th century Georgian country manor house. A quiet retreat, away from the hustle and bustle. A place to kick back and reflect on the day’s explorations. A haven for food-lovers.
Turn back the clock to reveal Rowton Hall’s turbulent past – the Battle of Rowton Heath took place in its grounds during the English Civil War. Today, the contrast couldn’t be greater. Laid-back Summer lounging on sunny garden terraces; cosy Winter evenings by crackling log fires in the bar.
The Spa completes this picture of serenity – designed for a restfulness with luxurious spa treatment rooms, a dedicated spa relaxation area and the shimmering blue waters of the indoor pool set against the lush green lawns of the walled garden beyond.
When the Head Chef and gardener work together, great things happen. Homegrown ingredients, picked straight from the kitchen garden are cooked up with the very best produce the region has to offer. Warm up your tastebuds for resplendent dining in the oak-panelled Langdale Restaurant.
A little over two miles away, the Roman walled city of Chester beckons – the only city in Britain completely encircled by its ancient walls. Take in city landmarks as you stroll the walls – the 1,000 year-old Chester Cathedral; the Norman castle; Chester Racecourse; the ornate Eastgate Clock, commemorating Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee; and the largest Roman amphitheatre in Britain. Wander into the heart of the city and step into the Middle Ages – explore the plethora of shops tucked into the nooks and crannies of Chester’s famous black and white timbered Rows.
Welcome to Rowton Hall Hotel & Spa – a country house oasis with one of Britain’s most celebrated historic cities at its doorstep.
