As promised here is my report on the cottage at 1 Water Lane in Salisbury. Wow! What a beautiful little cottage - two up, two down (with an extra room on the main floor for the kitchen and on the top floor for a bathroom) end of terrace , on a pedestrian walkway with just a small tributary of the river Avon passing by. The only noise was from the ducks in this shallow water. The house itself was filled with all mod cons and extremely comfortable. I loved being there. Everything is fairly small, but for the two of us it was perfect. There are two bedrooms upstairs, one smaller than the other, and a large bathroom. Downstairs there is a sitting room with good lighting for reading and knitting, dining room (with a window giving views to the spire of the cathedral) and a kitchen. Outside in the yard at the back is a shed which houses the washer and dryer and also a small freezer. The owner met us and gave us excellent instructions on how to use all the appliances etc. Once we found our way around the city we got our groceries mainly at Sainsbury's which is fairly close by, but also took advantage of the market on Tuesdays and Saturdays and bought food there too. There are lots of restaurants in the town, but we tended to cater for ourselves for our big meal at night, having sandwiches or similar somewhere when we were out for the day. We paid 1 pound for a city map at the Information Centre and that was well worth it to help us find our way around. We bought a Rover pass for the buses and spent a day at Devizes, Chippenham, Trowbridge, then back to Devizes where we caught the last bus of the day back to Salisbury with 5 minutes to spare! We walked across the Watermeadows to Harnham Mill and had our Sunday lunch at the pub there. Beautiful views of the cathedral from the walk - apparently that is the location where Constable painted his famous picture of the Cathedral. We went into the Cathedral, and also into the parish church in the city. The latter was built for worship services while the cathedral was under construction. It is a lovely place in itself. All in all, a great holiday in a lovely city with beautiful architecture and interesting buildings. I know this was supposed to be only about self-catering so I will end by saying that we highly recommend this little cottage.
