The interior is modern, elegant and comfortable. The lounge has a large sofa, log fire, HDLCD TV and DVD and iPod speaker system. The DVD library has some 15 DVDs for you to choose from. The kitchen is fully equipped (no oven), but if you don't feel like cooking the cottage is a two minute walk from a huge range of restaurants, cafes and take aways.
The romantic bedroom has a queen size bed, and private balcony from which you can enjoy tree top views with glimpses of the city, glorious sunsets and star gaze at night through the telescope. The bathroom has a spa bath, fluffy robes and towels. Massages can also be arranged by appointment, to ensure you are completely relaxed.
