“Second visit in a row and even better than before!”
Reviewed June 22, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We loved The Mousetrap so much when we stayed there for the first time in 2017 that we quickly booked to return in 2018. It was brilliant to return to the cottage, which is in a fantastic location just a few minutes walk from the town centre and quayside. The cottage was again lovely and clean and superbly equipped with everything you need for a lovely home from home. The recently redecorated bathroom is a great addition and has a lovely big bath my two year old daughter loved splashing around in. The cottage itself is very spacious and the bedrooms are nice and comfortable after a day in the sun at the stunning Wells beach. I think it’s safe to say will be returning in 2019! One quick hint if you’re visiting Wells - try the dresser crab from the stall on the quayside. Delicious.

Thanks for a great review Tom. Glad the bathroom renovation proved to be worth the effort. The Dressed Crab from Frary's is a delicious treat and worth visiting Wells for. They are caught locally just off shore and prepared at the end of the harbour. Look forward to seeing you again soon....

“Wells - delightful as ever”
Reviewed May 23, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The weather was perfect. The cottage was homely, cosy & clean. It was perfectly poesitioned being only a short walk from the centre of Wells. It was the perfect bolt hole for a getaway. The family enjoyed the peacefulness of the cottage.
Try BANG in Wells for a coffee or snack; it’s great!
We would certainly like to return to the cottage as it was so lovely for us to be together as a family. We really enjoyed ourselves, in fact we didn’t want to come home!!!

“Perfect Break”
Reviewed January 1, 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The cottage was in a perfect location opposite the Church and walkable to town. Although the cottage is not advertised allowed me to bring my two toy dogs who slept in their baskets down stairs which I thought was very kind. The cottage was cosy and warm and we had all we needed. The bed linen and bed was superior to all the cottages we have been to as I love cotton sheets. I would definitely stay again. Thanks Carl for a great Christmas break

“A great place to stay in a brilliant location”
Reviewed July 12, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A lovely cottage with modern kitchen equipped with everything you need for a perfect holiday. The décor was bright and clean and the beds very comfortable. The location meant you could walk into town within a few minutes, perfect if you want a few drinks with your evening meal! Also a bonus to have parking for two cars.

“Lovely cottage, ideal base........................”
Reviewed July 4, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Arrived to a very clean well equipped cosy cottage ideal for 5 adults but would suit 6 adults with no problem at all. Everything provided , including new dishcloths, wash up liquid, BBQ stuff ( replace if used), logs if needed (we didn't), and so on.
Main bathroom very slightly dated but very clean so OK. Beds, bedding, towels immaculate.
Wells is pretty and you can walk everywhere from the cottage ( one of our party has mobility issues but had no problems) Supermarkets ( 2) very close by. Pub virtually next door. Beach a bit of a walk ( scenic ,flowers, boats) but railway or car park available for tired legs. Nice cafe at Beach
Thanks Carl for a lovely week.
