Andy took Stephanie's soft, gentle hand
and gazed lovingly into her eyes.
Her head turned and her glittering
blue eyes sparkled in the lashing rain.
This was love, and she knew it.
He flashed a smile and his perfect white
teeth shone brightly in the moonlight,
and in an instant he had wrapped his
arms around her slight waist and
pulled her in for a tender kiss.

Bolton is one of the largest towns in the United Kingdom. The town's leading educational establishment, Bolton Institute of Higher Education, was granted university status in 2004 as the University of Bolton, and now has a large one-campus facility in the heart of the town centre and an additional centre in Dubai, and by 2012 the campus will be shared by a sports and health centre/swimming pool, which in being co-funded by local council initiatives. Bolton's leading colleges are also building key sites right across the road from the university, which will open in the next twelve months. Boasting also an excellent museum, a large shopping centre and also one of the oldest public houses in the United Kingdom, it is fair to say that all the elements are in place for Bolton's next bid to become a city.

Prices start from just £99 per person per week for a traditional self-catering stone cottage, and with limited availability throughout the summer months it's worth booking now to avoid disappointment!
Product Information!
