    “A lovely property.”

    Well situated and equipped. I would not hesitate to go back. ...

    Well situated and equipped. I would not hesitate to go back. My only issue was around parking. The space at the back of the property is very tight - not suitable for an estate or bigger car. It would have been useful to have known this. I contacted Sykes in advance to ask about parking for a 2nd car and was told the owner did not provide a permit and that I would need to buy one (£30) & a link to do this was helpfully e-mailed to me. However there is a permit in the house for use parking in the roads around the property so buying a permit was an unnecessary expense. Unfortunately the map accompanying the permit did not show where it could be used as the info claimed - it was just a google map print out. I searched the internet to no avail. I did find spaces I thought it could be used for in but they did say for 'residents' and the permit said 'visitor' so I was not sure, and those spaces were always full. Some of the surrounding roads have unrestricted parking. So neither permit was really necessary in the end and the parking was not a problem.

Ideal for couples or friends, this slate cottage has been thoughtfully designed, with a high-quality finish and plush furnishings welcoming you inside.

The living room is open-plan and situated on the lower ground level, with a dining area and kitchen, wonderfully appointed for preparing those tasty evening meals together.

Nestled on the ground floor, just off the hallway is the bathroom, followed by a double bedroom with its very own en-suite.

Two further bedrooms rest upstairs on the first floor.
