Unfortunately, due to the nature of the building, the apartment may be unsuitable for people with mobility difficulties and would be extremely difficult to access for wheelchair users due to two large steps up into, and steps up and down once in the building, coupled with narrow doorways.
We are unable to accommodate pets in the apartment building.
We do not currently have wifi connectivity at the apartment. If you have wifi at home through BT then you may be able to take advantage of a BT Hotspot in the apartment.
