Your “Home from Home” 4 Star (Graded by Visit Scotland) "Self-Catering" Apartment in Pollokshields on Glasgow’s leafy South Side which will cater for your every need in a safe and prestigious environment. Apartments have a tranquil and safe atmosphere and are quietly situated on the ground floor of a small, private residential apartment block in the highly desirable Millionaires' district of Pollokshields. Pollokshields was Glasgow’s first garden suburb and still retains that old Victorian charm relating back to its history when it served the rich Victorian merchants who established the City of Glasgow. It is sometimes hard to believe, as you stroll along the tree lined avenues with their grand architecture, that you are only 5 mins from the bustling City Centre and just 2/3 mins to the M8/M77/M74 Motorways which means that it is easy head off in any direction. Dumbreck Train Station on the Paisley Canal Line is a 2 minute walk away and a short 5 minute hop will take you straight into the centre of Glasgow. Local buses are also nearby. The exclusive, up-market Sherbrooke Castle Hotel is closeby and the Bar and Restaurant are open to non-residents with a small local convenience store nearby. Not only this, but you will be ideally and centrally situated to enable you to visit Edinburgh, Loch Lomond, Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument, Ayrshire (Rabbie Burns/Auld Lang Syne Country), all of which are only a short 40 minute drive away. After your busy day, you will be able to come home to Sherbrooke and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine or perhaps even “A Wee Dram of Scotch Whisky” relaxing on the pleasant outdoor terrace (in front of Sherbrooke 2) with its seating and planters.
Elevated and set well back from a quiet road surrounded by trees and garden, from your large north-facing windows you can enjoy unique wonderful panoramic views north over the city spotting many of Glasgow's famous landmarks and as far as The Campsie Fells, at the foot of which you might like to go and visit Dumgoyne Whisky Distillery and The Trossachs (the beginning of The Scottish Highlands). So much of Scotland to discover right on your doorstep!

We are considering moving to a house with some self catering accommodation. I would use the set up at Sherbrooke as a model of best practice.
