The private self-contained flat is newly decorated and very warm and cosy. Good cell phone coverage. Guests should feel comfortable about being independent in their separate accommodate during their stay. No smokers please.
2 hours help for each night stayed is required in exchange for queen or twin beds, free WIFI, games, books etc in the self-contained flat with washing machine etc. All meals/snacks must be self-catered.
