A common hall and airy staircase lead up to the first serviced apartment to be opened in Preston. An entrance Vestibule gives on to the living room and kitchen to the left and the bedroom and bathroom to the right.


The sun-filled living room which has three large double-glazed sash windows in the south west and south east walls fuses a subtle mixture of modern furnishing within an array of period fixtures. Gorgeous views over Avenham Park and the River Ribble can be enjoyed during the day and screened off at night using the original Victorian wood shutters which fold out from the architraves.

Thermostatically controlled central heating keeps the apartment nice and warm and a real flame feature gas fire can provide a more intimate atmosphere for a quiet evening in. A library of CDs, DVDs and a range of books are available for your use and enjoyment.

Opening off the living room is a fully equipped kitchen featuring a gas hob, electric oven, an integrated fridge and separate freezer.

The very spacious and tall bedroom is fitted with a king size bed and utilises a number of modern and period features, including the original Victorian marble fireplace which has been restored for decorative effect. A separate dressing room next to the bedroom houses a closet with ample clothes-hanging space and storage for your cases. Ironing facilities are also housed in this closet.

Beyond the dressing room is a very spacious modern bathroom with a bath and shower, W.C. and vanity sink. It also contains a washer and drier and plenty of folding space for your personal laundry. The bathroom overlooks a landscaped courtyard and the estates’ private garden which is available for all guests’ use. Summer barbeques may be cooked by guests in this quiet, personal space.
