The Russell is an attractive detached building; purpose built in the mid 1930’s and located on a quiet road overlooking the glen of Peasholm park. The garden to the front offers a relaxing place to sit and enjoy the views across the trees and greenery of the park where an interesting array of wildlife can be quite entertaining.

On cooler days, the same views can be enjoyed from the guest lounge.
