An elegant house and a surprising find on the edge of this busy city. Tim (Canadian) and Biddy are a creative pair. Guests have their own sunny yellow sitting room, bedrooms are inviting and you’ll find art, antiques, flowers, Tim’s photos and beautiful handmade furniture throughout. Breakfast is jam-packed: seasonal fruit from the allotment, greenhouse tomatoes, homemade muesli and marmalade, local market produce – out on the terrace if sunny; the garden is a picture of bluebells in spring. The Cathedral has the tallest spire in the country, Stonehenge is nearby and there are festivals to be enjoyed throughout the year.
