Ray and Sue have lived in Caton for 17 yrs, and saw the exciting potential when purchasing the property which is now, The Quarters ! Ray is originally from Manchester, Sue has moved around more, but also originates from the North of England. Our love of the north is clearly demonstrated by the number of maps and books which we have for guests to borrow; we are both keen walkers, and can assist with walks of different levels, and some beautiful vistas await you, We both work part time, so have plenty of time to ensure that the apartment is spick and span for your arrival. Rays background is in teaching, Sue has a Learning disability nursing background, and has a lot of experience working with people with an ASC.

The Quarters is a flexible space, and suitable for all, visiting friends and family, or taking a break. A warm welcome awaits you, we greet with a bottle of wine, milk tea and coffee. Our expert local knowledge is an added bonus, we can point you in the direction of great vistas and eateries ! Open for twelve years, we have welcomed guests from 24 different countries, and from all over the UK. We also have plenty of maps and walking, and cycling books for you to borrow, to enhance your visit. Bought as offices, complete refurbishment has ensured that the inclusive nature of The Quarters was in place from the very beginning. Extra width doors, all sockets and switches at a metre high, and an excellent bathroom which is spacious and cosy, show a subtle but effective specification for wheelchair users. The huge windows were retained making a light airy, and comfortable holiday apartment, complimented by a private garden with a stream flowing down the side, ideal for relaxing or entertaining. Explore this diverse area- City Coast Countryside, its all here !
