We are on a quiet historic block of terraced cottages with gardens, a friendly family feel and peaceful after the busy city, but only 15 minutes to the centre by bus.

Getting around

Yes there is a 49 bus direct from the bottom of our street to the city centre and back and also the 35 bus goes all the way to the airport.
