It has a lovely, light dining room with glass door that overlooks the garden where there is a table and chairs. The kitchen is modern, well equipped with wooden work surfaces and slate floor. The sitting room is extremely spacious and comfortable with thoughtful decoration. The house is lit well with thoughtful touches and is always kept extremely clean. The main bedroom is very pretty and light with a recently installed king size bed. The house has a wood burner stove and central heating and is warm and cosy in the winter

Apart from the magnificent cathedral (housing one of the earliest mechanical clocks in existence and Vicars Close-the oldest continuously inhabited medieval street in Europe).
