Very charming place

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this very nice place for our short stay.

Unfortunately, the weather was not with us. The flat provided everything we needed plus quite some selection of entertainment for bad weather.

Penicuik allows for easy access to Edinbourgh.

It was a great place for our short stay.

07/06/2017 stay in the appartment

Het appartement is heel schoon en ligt op een prima uitvalsplek.

Voor ons was het wel heel erg vol met prachtige persoonlijke verzamelingen. Het overweldigde ons heel erg.
