Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great 4 bedroom property for extended families with children who can safely manage steep stairs. Having the park across the road is a real benefit; the monkeys, the Design Centre and the Museum. The cottage is luxurious, comfortable and very well equipped for self caterers. The shopping centre is very close. The Hollybank zip line and bike tracks, 30 minutes away, were a very exciting experience. We had a fabulous time. Thank you.
