North-facing outdoor room - lots of windows + french doors let in sunshine, 10m across driveway/garden to our sunny character Main House (for shared kitchen, bathroom, breakfast area & living room where you can enjoy exchanges with other travellers) & Unlimited B'band or Wi-Fi, gives you a peaceful retreat, 2km to central Cathedral Square.
Note, all guests must be at least 18 years of age.
Please note: 1) This Sleep Out room is across the gravel driveway from the Main House where the shared bathroom and kitchen are situated. You need to walk around 10-15 steps across the gravel every time you want to access the bathroom, kitchen or outside Toilet House. 2) This room has a partition wall shared with the next room, and there is a window and a door in the wall. Although these are covered with curtains, it is possible to hear conversation in the next room. 3) The Sunny Conservatory is very sunny - due to lots of north-facing and west-facing windows, it can get really hot on a fine summer's day. Please confirm this is definitely the room you want to stay in.
Quiet enjoyment is the theme of the house. Please relax and make use of the shared bathroom and kitchen as your own home - don't forget to dry and put away your dishes after each meal, always leave the bathroom "in a better condition than you found it" and we will all be very happy!
Help with heavy items is warmly appreciated, e.g. mowing the lawn (hand mower), moving furniture (comes up more often than you might think!)
No pets, no smoking. Sorry, no guests under 18 years of age.

Love travels in Europe, classical music and singing (choral and folk), learning languages like French and Chinese, philosophy, tai chi (taijiquan) and all my work roles in publishing, translation, interpreting and admin.
I love Dorothy Dunnett, Georgette Heyer, and read around 10 books a week. I mostly cook Mediterranean vegetarian (I do eat eggs and dairy) but other people in the house eat whatever they like. There are usually a few working holiday-makers and language students from every nationality around, as I enjoy their dynamism and openness to new experiences.
I want to make the most of Life, and for me that means enjoying the challenges and evolution.
