“Relaxation and Fun”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

This place is the perfect answer to any type of holiday that you would want. It has beautiful surroundings and relaxing gardens but it also provides plenty of entertainment for children. The history of this house is some what magical and it creates a beautiful atmosphere.
The inside of the house is well worth the visit as it seems untouched by todays world and the tour really lets you delve in to its history.
I would reccommend this location for everyone of every age and feel that Wells House is a timeless location. Excellent!

“Lovely”
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Didn't go into house as our children too young. My six year old has visited house previously and enjoyed. 6 euro entry into grounds ( 1 and 2 e coins req) well worth it. V pleasant walk, nice spacious playground, lovely grounds and gardens, nice coffee shop. Fountain, sun dial, life size chess and draughts. Lovely picnic area with seats and tables made from tree trunks. Kids enjoyed just exploring. Also archery. Think there's falconry at weekend. Spent 4 hours, could easily have stayed longer. Only recently opened with one or 2 works still in progress. Expect to be giving 5/5 on next visit
