The bright nursery is a large room with a kingsize bed and 2 singles and room for any cribs or cots. Extra twin/single beds can be added to most of the bedrooms as needed. The house is a 1-minute walk from the nearest park which has a playground, and there are lots of kids activities in the area.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 2 nights. The house is set over 3 floors with a lot of stairs but there are stair gates on all of them. Pets considered on a case-by-case basis.

Highlights of the local area include a local artisan bakery, a regular farmer’s market held in the park, and Pollok Park, one of Europe’s largest green spaces with Highland Cattle, Clydesdale horses and Pollok House.

Outgoing and friendly couple living on Glasgow Southside with our beautiful daughter and another baby due soon. A perfect location for us - surrounded by amazing architecture, 8 minutes from the city centre and 5 minutes from some of the largest parks in Europe. We both like to work hard during the week and relax at weekends. Glasgow is our beloved city, a magical combination of culture and people, yet near the coast and hills. We love the outdoors, dogs, walking, cycling, family time and eating out. We especially like other families to enjoy our home so Kid & Coe seems the perfect choice.

Prams, rockets and spitfires

Known for its art school and its architecture, Glasgow’s museums and galleries are a must see. Kids will love the Kelvingrove’s suspended Spitfire; Glasgow Science Centre is ideal for hands-on fun, while The Riverside Museum is packed with transport items from prams to rockets and is in a stunning Zaha Hadid-designed building. For a little more culture, why not visit the Tron Theatre for storytelling sessions for babies and toddlers, or take a day trip to Edinburgh, an hour away by train or car, for a two-city break.
