"Beautiful, well furnished and spotless"

My wife and I stayed at the Light Well with two friends from 1st to 8th September and we all had a fantastic stay in what is excellent accommodation. The house is beautifully fitted and furnished throughout, it is spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. Julie, the owner, is the perfect host - friendly, helpful and customer focussed. There is ample parking for two vehicles and although only about a ten to twelve minute walk to the Minster, we were never disturbed by any traffic noise despite its handy location.
