Self Catering


The Flat, Glencaple

The Flat offers very comfortable ground floor accommodation for two in the heart of Glencaple Village. Built in the early 19th century, it has recently been renovated to a high standard. The Flat has an interesting but very workable layout. Many years ago the building was converted into two flats and an extension built – which gives it a slightly quirky feel!
