Other things to note
Car Parking - there are 4 pay and display car parks within 1 min walk of the apartment. Maximum parking is 3 hours on the St Edward St and Market Place ones and costs less than £2. The High St car parks are longer stay and cost less than £3. The charges are only applied between the hours of 09:30-15:30 Monday- Saturday. FREE Sundays and after 15:30 until 09:30 in the morning. On street parking is restricted on St Edwards and High St to just 30mins. But unrestricted on Strangeman St, Britannia St, Gladstone St if you can find a spot.
Please note: the Market Place (square) holds a weekly antiques market so is closed for parking from Friday evening until Saturday evening.
Always double check the street signage for any event or car parking restrictions as they can change from time to time and I'd hate for any unwanted parking fines.
Number of guests must be confirmed when booking - bedding and towels will be provided and charged for accordingly
Born in Leek, but I now live and work in Luxembourg with my family. Shepherds View is my base in Leek when I visit family & friends. It's too nice to be empty so I want to share it!
