1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
Wells, Somerset, England
Delightful mews cottage in quiet cul-de-sac only three minutes walk from the historic centre of Wells, and with stunning views of the medieval Cathedral. A few hundred yards from award-winning restaurants, and with mystical Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge and Caves and the Somerset Levels very close by. Only 21 miles from Bristol and from Jane Austen's Bath. One and a half hour's by car to Stonehenge, or to the stunning Jurassic Coast of South Devon, and a similar distance from the high moorland of Exmoor and the precipitous sea cliffs of North Devon. This recently refurbished, immaculate, 4 star fully equipped cottage sleeps 2-4. The accommodation is set over three floors, with shower rooms on the ground and top floors, and a small private courtyard to the rear. There is a dedicated parking space immediately opposite.

The cottage is well formed, everything is clean and tidy. There are two toilets in the cottage which is really convenient. The cottage is located not far away from the main street, the environment is nice and quiet. Linda is nice and helpful, she introduced good restaurants and fabulous tourist sites to us. We had a warm stay there.

Management response:

Thank you for your review, and I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The view of the Cathedral from the kitchen-diner is such that the downstairs sitting room tends only to be used when we have more than a couple staying. However, we are planning to provide additional lighting there. Parking is at a premium in central Wells, with...

We had a wonderful three night stay here in August 2016. It is very much a modern cottage with a 'town house' feel. Everything we could have needed was there. Top floor bedroom was comfortable with a lovely view of the city in the near distance. Didn't make a lot of use of the kitchen but it was well set...
