Key features

Based in the quiet area of Ravelston, this spacious property offers the perfect respite from the hustle and bustle of the city, yet is just a 25 minute walk, or short drive away from the activity of the city centre.

Conveniently located on the ground floor with it's own private access, this 1930s lower villa comes finished to a very high standard. A rather generous driveway parks up to two vehicles, and a welcoming front garden separates the property from the street. The sunny patio to the rear of the villa creates the perfect hideaway for you to enjoy the fresh suburban air away from the city.

Three bedrooms allow a comfortable night's sleep for six guests, with one kingsize master bedroom, one double bedroom, and a further bedroom with twin beds. A traditional family bathrooms gives you the option of both a bath, and a separate shower cubicle, complete with WC and basin. The property also benefits from an additional, separate, WC and basin wash room.

Neutrally decorated, the cosy living room comes fully equipped for you to kick back and relax, hosting a three piece suite, cable TV, DVD player, and WiFi.

The fully fitted kitchen is equipped with all the mod cons, including electric oven and grill, ceramic hob, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, microwave and all utensils and crockery. A delightful dining conservatory completes this home from home.

When you're ready to explore the beautiful and historic centre of the city, a regular bus service will get you there in ten minutes. Or, if you prefer door to door service, a taxi will only set you back £6.00.

A meet and greet service is provided, whereby you will be met at the property to be provided with keys and to be shown the property. Please arrange your arrival with the property manager.

Entry to the apartment is from 16:00 onwards; however, please note that arrivals after 19:00 may incur a late arrival fee of 15 pounds for unsociable hours. Earlier entry can perhaps be arranged but depends if there is a departure at your chosen apartment that day. This can be confirmed within 48 hours of arrival. If you are arriving earlier than 16:00 on your day of arrival, it is always worth contacting the property manager as they will always endeavour to give you access as soon as possible. You may be able to arrive early and leave luggage and come back however this is not guaranteed.

The latest departure time is 11:00, however, a guaranteed later departure (up to 20:00) can be arranged for a fee of 50% of the daily rate for that day but please note this is subject to no existing booking arriving that day already.

Mike and his son Rhys were very kind and accommodating with our requests. My family loved the place as it was cosy, clean and homely. The facilities were great and the beds comfortable. My Mum says she would definitely like to stay here again.
Thanks, Mike and Rhys.


The price was so reasonable for the number of rooms and the type of property.
