    It's one of the larger house spiders, Tegenaria sp. There are several species which you can't separate from a photo.

        What I wrote was probably out of date. There has been a revision of Tegenaria genus and some of the larger species have been lumped together in one species called Eratigena (a synonym* of Tegenaria) atrica - this incorporates T. gigantea, saeva and atrica. But I don't know if everyone accepts it.


        * ooops, I meant anagram
