FAQs

Do you welcome pets?

We are afraid that we cannot cater for animals, as the owners of the property are asthmatic and allergic to most pet hair.

Is this an entire house?

This is a private apartment within a larger house. The front three rooms have their own entrance and in private use through the day, and very occasionally in the evening. The View has it’s own entrance, parking space and is completely locked off and private.
