  • “Great position so close to town.”

    Award loading and unloading but expected that as it’s a second floor flat. Loo took 3 flushes to get loo paper flushed. That should be looked at!

Ely also offers a beautiful waterside area on the River Great Ouse where you can enjoy relaxing boat trips, leisurely riverside walks, explore the antique shops, or visit the Babylon Art Gallery.
