Thanks to Steve for being our host. We stopped without any reservation on saturday evening. It was a warm welcome. The room and the view from the balkony over the garden had been lovely. We got helpful recommandations for restaurants. The breakfast, even with gluten free bread, was a good start in the day. A stay here will be a... More

This place has a beautiful gardens for the visitors and is with in walking distance to everything Wells can offer. I will definitely not hesitate... More

This is a really lovely place to stay - a beautiful large Edwardian house, decorated and furnished in that era and an equally large and beautiful garden (which guests can use!). Stephanie and Steve are very friendly welcoming hosts, providing useful local information and a delicious and substantial breakfast every morning - everything you could possibly wish for! If you're... More

This was my second stay at the B & B now, although it was my brothers 4th time I believe. 5 of us in our party, so 3 out of the 4 rooms taken by us. Very friendly owners, on hand with local knowledge and a friendly chat. Good value for money, very clean and comfortable, everything that you could... More

City of Wells is sm. beautiful, cathedral, Bishop's Palace & moat plus parish/civic ch., but Wells is worth it for this real gem. Fantastic, words fail me. Beautifully kept, no money spared. Superb room, balcony overlooking well kept garden. Fantastic, only thing like many, many other places, needs a wall rail over bath for those, like me,who have difficulty climbing... More

Stayed here two nights. Lovely welcome, lovely people and a adorable snoring dog called Rupert. Nice room with a balcony looking over a lovely garden and great views. Breakfast was good quality and tasty- they have something for everybody (Anything specific not a problem if asked for night before). The fruit salad and juice is a lovely touch when you... More

Steve and Stephanie Trebble are delightful, charming, very helpful and accommodating hosts. Their home is a 100-year-old three or four story brick home built in classic Edwardian style. Steve and Stephanie have fully renovated the home to return it to its original style and grace. The home has been fitted throughout with period pieces of furniture and décor that make... More

During a Mendip Way walking trip we stayed one night at this nice and comfortable B&B. We felt very welcomed by our friendly hosts and got two clean and nicely decorated bedrooms on suite. One room had a balcony with a lovely view into the nice garden. In the morning they served a well prepared and generous breakfast. Stefanie arranged... More

We received a warm welcome and were shown into bright clean rooms. Inside the house was impeccable, furnished in a traditional style, and the gardens looked glorious in the sunlight. We had views from our balcony to St Cuthberts and to Glastonbury Tor. Our hosts knew Wells very well and explained clearly how to get to where we wanted to... More

Lovely rooms, comfy beds and generous and delicious breakfast. Came here with the family for one night. Walking distance to the town centre. Wish we had had more time to relax in their lovely garden. They were also very accommodating as we changed our booking at the last minute. Will be back!!
