Well behaved pets by arrangement, please inquire about our pet policy.

Plenty of safe on street parking is available. Please note that due to the steep driveway and steps into the house this property is not suitable for mobility impaired guests.

We take our guest safety seriously and after speaking with the experts have invested in an Airguard Sanitization Machine (as used in MIQ and Medical Facilities) which ensures the entire house and contents are fully sanitized between guests using fogging technology..
