"Perfect stop-off point"

This apartment was perfect for our needs. Lovely to find two singles rather than the usual twin - son/daughter understandably reluctant to share now they are older. Apartment was beautifully clean and had everything we needed. The pub just up the road was friendly and the apartment couldn't be closer to the wonderful Trans-Pennine Way. Worth stopping just up the way at the Huskar Pit Memorial too - very moving.
I would thoroughly recommend this apartment as perfect stop-off for a night or short break.
