Franklin's View has a charming and cosy atmosphere befitting of a holiday cottage. The open plan living and dining area has a bright and airy feel which is encouraged by the large panoramic windows, looking over the rooftops to the Harbour and Scapa Flow. Franklin's View boasts its' own private and secluded garden with drying green and garden furniture (ideal for a BBQ or relaxing) Franklin's View sleeps four people in two cosy bedrooms one of which is a double and the other a twin each with cupboards and hanging storage. The bathroom has a fully tiled floor with a walk in shower....Franklin's View has a charming and cosy atmosphere befitting of a holiday cottage.
