Great location

This was in a great location and this house is an amazing historic place with all the comforts of home. Guy has done a great job melding the historic with the modern as well as creature comforts. The house is right next to an amazing 8th Century Cathedral, the High street and a 10 minute walk to the train station. Checking in and out were a breeze. We hope to return this summer. Well done Guy.
