While for leisure, the Squash and Tennis Club lies close at hand with the city centre itself only a 15 mins walk.

The inviting room retains all its classic Victorian detailing with coving, picture rail, deep wainscoting and culminates in the delightful moulded, feather motif ceiling rose. The rich hues of the solid wood flooring are echoed in the imposing fireplace of exposed brick with characterful ‘raw’ timber mantelpiece, home to a Multi-fuel stove set on a tile hearth.
Dining Room – The traditional formal Dining Room, charmingly denoted by the fruit and vegetable moulding of the ceiling rose, offers a lovely setting for the gathering of family and friends, and enjoys a window fitted with shutters looking out to the side garden.
