    “This is a wonderful apartment in a stunning location - quite high up so lots of exercise going up and down to the centre (but we needed the exercise, so that was a good thing!”

    ). Really good that there is a parking space, as I can imagine that's not the case with a lot of properties further down. We definitely hope to stay there again in the future.
