Property Description

Explorer John McDouall Stuart was born in this house in 1815 and later emigrated ‘down under’ where he led the first expedition to cross Australia from south to north in 1862. He is a celebrated figure in Australia, where he has a 950-mile highway named after him. The holiday apartment, which sleeps 2, occupies the upper two floors of a three-storey B-listed building. The rooms have been decorated in keeping with the style of the building, retaining period features, such as the window shutters.

There is a spacious living/dining area, with a large dining table that seats 6, and plenty of comfortable seating where you can relax and take in the breath-taking views out to sea. There is a TV with DVD player.

Off the living room is a well-equipped kitchen with hob, oven, microwave, dishwasher, toaster, kettle and fridge. A washing machine/dryer is located in a cupboard off the living room.

On the upper floor is a comfortable twin bedroom with sloped ceiling and lovely sea views. There is also a modern bathroom with toilet, sink and shower on the upper level.

Freshly-laundered towels and bed-linen are all provided.

The apartment is accessed via an external stone staircase. There is no lift access.
This is a non-smoking property and we do not allow pets.
There is plenty of parking on the street outside the apartment.

Travel cot and camp bed available on request
