Lovely clean and tidy bedroom and ensuite bathroom. We had a terrace overlooking a pleasing garden where we were able to enjoy the afternoon sun with a pot of tea. There are lots of lovely Victorian features in the breakfast room which also looks onto the garden.

Steve and Steph went out of their way to give us a comfortable stay. We don't like sharing a breakfast table so our meal time was tailored to our being on our own. We were also offered breakfast in our room. My husband wanted another pillow and he was offered a choice of filling.We were also given fresh milk in... More

A great three night stay in Wells. Steve was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The room was lovely with a balcony and view out over the beautiful garden. It was also nice to have the tea / biscuits supply topped and a fresh bottle of water each day. Breakfast was delicious with plenty of choice. The B&B was... More

HIghfield is what a B&B should be--spotless, comfortably furnished, with owners who clearly enjoy their work. The breakfast room is lovely with a view to the garden (and Toby the tortoise) and the fresh fruit cup with luscious strawberries was a very welcome way to start breakfast. Steve's restaurant advice was very good as well. Wells is such a pretty... More

My friend and I stayed for three nights over the last weekend and both of us agreed it would be difficult to improve on it. Steve & Steph gave us a warm welcome and continued to be friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Plenty of parking space on the property. A lovely gracefully furnished house only a 10 minute walk... More

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 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!

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
