Warm, light, airy ground floor flat with high ceilings, nicely furnished, very comfortable. Sole use of garden terrace with garden furniture, toddler swing and slide. Ramp (or a few steps) to the front door; once inside everything is on one level.
Brilliant location in quiet street with adjacent, private off-street parking. 2 minutes walk to Newport Arch, about 7 minutes to cathedral (level walk along quaint Bailgate with boutiques, restaurants, pubs.)
Spotlessly clean throughout and in excellent decorative order. Lovely big living/ dining room overlooking garden with sofa bed (if needed), dining table for 4, large flat-screen TV and DVD player, magazines and a few small toys and children's books. Spacious modern kitchen/ breakfast room (seating for 2 but fully equipped for 4) with oven, grill, hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, coffee machine, dishwasher and larder fridge (n.b. no ice box nor freezer). No washing machine but a drying-rack provided for hand-washed items, also iron and ironing board. Large, stylish bathroom with toiletries and plenty of fluffy towels (walk-in shower, no tub).
Plentiful supplies of instant coffee, tea bags, sugar, washing-up liquid, dishwasher tablets, kitchen foil, clingfilm, as well as coffee pods, top-quality fudge, still mineral water and a pint of fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. Dish cloth and tea towel provided and even table napkins.
Excellent communication with owner (phone, email) as regards access, allocated parking etc.
A few trivial negatives; the double bedroom is small with a standard-size bed (not queen or king-size) and a bedside table and lamp just on one side, and it has a hanging rail and hangers but no shelves nor drawer space, so it was really not possible to fully unpack our suitcase (no problem for 2 nights but maybe the situation could be helped if the bed had drawers under, or maybe a chest of drawers could be provided elsewhere in the flat). Plenty of mirrors but none are full-length. Not possible to make ice nor store any frozen groceries as there is no ice box or freezer.
Even so we would definitely recommend to family and friends and may very well return ourselves.
