Glen Brook was the original name given to 50 Craig Walk in 1904. A substantia house it was divided into two duplex apartments in 1984. I bought the house in March 2018 and live in Apartment 1, which takes up the ground and basement floors. Apartment 2 is for guests consisting of the first and second floors with use of the communal hallway and front door. Each flat is approx. 1000sq ft - so there is plenty of space. Once I've established a pleasant seating area in the front - very small - garden, guests will be welcome to relax there. I use the back yard where various recycling bins are kept, not convenient for guests, so no need to dispose of the rubbish.
Having punched in the code for the key lock box and opened the front door guests proceed to the door marked 2. Coats and shoes can be left here, but not mandatary, unless it's raining and muddy! The house is fully carpeted.
1st floor = kitchen, bathroom and sitting room.
The kitchen seats 6 people and there is a fridge/ freezer, electric cooker and hob, toaster, microwave and rice cooker. There is also a washer/dryer, dishwasher, iron and ironing board. All crockery, glasses, silverware, cooking utensils, dishes, tea towel, first aid etc are for guests to use. Complimentary breakfast items, tea, coffee, oil, condiments and rice are also included.

The sitting room is cosy and well decorated and has two sofas, one being a sofa bed. The large Chinese cupboard contains extra bed-linen and pillows for the sofa bed. Guests with laptops find the desk useful and everyone enjoys the Lake District maps and books - especially the illustrated map on the desk.
