With nearby transport links by tram and train. The property was very well furnished with everything you would need including a very relaxing deck and garden. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, kichen was well appointed and open plan living area extremely functional.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The house is situated very close to the motorway and public transport into the town if preferred .. the town is a 15 min walk away (although it is up hill) which you could spend a good couple of days exploring. The house was a fantastic base and everyone had a comfortable stay. Everything we needed for a home from home. The pool gave cooling relief from the heat and it was a lovely area to sit in in the evening after dinner. We will be recommending it to anyone who wants to stay in this area.
