About our home

We offer a four bedroom double upper family apartment, comprising the top two floors of a three floor, semi-detached Victorian house. The property dates back to 1890 and enjoys many period features, adding character and charm. We have renovated the interior to a high standard, making it both contemporary and comfortable. We have a large, bay-windowed, lounge with working fireplace, a cosy family room/playroom (stocked with ample toys and TV/DVD), sunny kitchen with all mod cons and glass-roofed dining area. There are four bedrooms, with beds to sleep seven. The master bedroom has an en-suite with free-standing bath and shower cubicle. There is a family bath/shower room downstairs. There is additional sleeping for two on a sofa-bed in the lounge, along with two travel cots if needed. There is off-street parking and the large leafy garden has toys and a 10' trampoline. The house has wireless internet.
