A very high standard of service

Very happy with the service from Camsure. They provided a very high standard of service. Very quick in booking a date for inspection of the property and the report was sent the following day. They were more than happy to telephone me and talk through the report on anything I had worries about or queries.

What's it like to live in Chester?

The historic city of Chester dates back to 79 AD and has a population of around 80,000. It may be small but it boasts an 11th-century Cathedral, the oldest city walls in the UK (over 2000 years old) and the biggest Roman amphitheatre in Britain. With such a rich and interesting history, it's little wonder that Chester is a tourist hot spot.

People also flock to the city to enjoy its undercover shopping centres crammed full of fashion boutiques, independent shops and big high street names. You'll find everything from high-end fashion and antiques to handmade jewellery and local produce.

Chester has parks and green spaces galore but the jewel in the crown must surely be Grosvenor Park. This award-winning, Grade-II listed park was opened in 1867 and has been enjoyed ever since. With stunning views over the River Dee, it's a paradise for joggers, dog walkers and families alike.

With first-rate schools and lower than average crime rates; together with fantastic restaurants, cafés and bars (plus the world-renowned Chester Zoo), it's the ideal place to put down roots.

It's also popular with newspaper critics. In 2018 The Times called the city "a national treasure" and named it the second-best place to live in the northwest. Quite an accolade.

So, for those who find big cities overwhelming but still want the urban buzz, Chester is the perfect choice.

We could not have had better service

We had a survey for a prospective house purchase carried out by Steven James. He was absolutely brilliant and could not have been more helpful. After completing his survey he took the trouble to ring us and give us a quick appraisal lwhich put our minds at rest. We received the full survey report the same evening. We could not have had better service.
