For couples looking for a quiet, romantic break away from chrome and gloss, to families with teenagers where they can all enjoy the doorstep delights of a bustling city, this property will not disappoint.
Choosing this cottage as your holiday home will have you enchanted from the moment you step inside, the period features blend beautifully with comfy seating and ample dining space.
The stairs are very steep up to the second floor bedroom, however it is well worth the effort as this room has cathedral views, and if holidaying with a teenager, they will love the space and privacy this allows.
Outside everything is on your doorstep; from dining Italian, Turkish, French or Spanish, sampling a glass of British ale over a plate of good old fish and chips, to maybe enjoying traditional Viennese chocolate cake with a morning coffee, all are available within a few minutes’ walk along the pedestrianised High Street.
Alternatively, for those romantics among us, a river trip is just the thing, finished off by an evening at the Marlowe Theatre.
This lovely, cosy cottage is a real find.
