Number 7 Longport
Described by Alastair Sawday as 'a delightful, unexpected hideaway just a five-minute walk from the cathedral', this self-contained cottage is the perfect pitstop for those who like their own space (it's tucked away across a courtyard from the owners' house) but someone else to do the cooking. 'You breakfast in the main house or in the courtyard on sunny days,' he explains.
