As described this is a good place to stay for visiting the city, as you can walk. Despite this it is in a quiet location near the river, which is also a pleasant walk. Close to shops, pubs and eating venues in the pretty city of Nelson.
The cottage is neat and tidy and has everything you need for your stay. Roz sent me detailed instructions on how to kind the cottage and the keys etc and left detailed information on the cottage. Furnishings were a bit "retro"...beds were nice and comfortable .
