What makes a stay at Garden Quarter unique?

The house overlooks the former Parade Ground, the main visual centre piece of the development. It is an area of green open space, surrounded by trees, but also has seating areas. There are nature trails and woodland walks within the surrounding landscaping.
The house is furnished and maintained to the highest standards: king size bed with pristine bed linen; leather seating; Nespresso coffee machine; free wifi. There is also free car parking.
What is the capacity for Garden Quarter?
The bedroom has one king size bed, but it is possible to put a blow up mattress up for a child for a short stay.
