Traditional stone cottage sleeping three, located in the historic city of Wells, just a short walk from the famous cathedral and a choice of restaurants and bistros.

This property enjoys a fantastic location just a short walk from Wells city centre. Despite being known as England’s smallest city, there is plenty to delight visitors to Wells, not least the city’s stunning cathedral. There is a good range of independent shops in the town, which make it a lovely place to spend an afternoon browsing and sampling the food in the local eateries, including the well-regarded gastro pub which guests will find just 200 yards from the property’s front door. Further afield, but still within easy reach, local attractions include Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, historic Glastonbury, and the discount shopping village at Street.

Coming through the front door of this attractive period property, guests take one step down to enter the cosy lounge. It is easy to relax here, with the tasteful muted colours, two comfortable sofas, warming flame-effect electric fire, TV, DVD, and hi-fi, making it the perfect space to unwind after a busy day of sightseeing. The kitchen/diner just across the hallway from the lounge, has a table seating four, and is equipped with an oven, hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, and washing machine. Stairs lead from the kitchen to the first-floor accommodation where there are two bedrooms. The master bedroom is a pretty double room with a beamed ceiling, whilst the other room is a restful single room. The bathroom, also located on the first floor, has a shower-over-bath and WC.

Outside, there is a modestly sized but lovely patio garden with garden furniture and a BBQ. Roadside parking is generally available close to the property.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

A excellent location and a well equipped cottage certainly perfect for two people. It was good to be able to walk into the centre of Wells including the Cathedral in ten minutes. Wells itself is a wonderful city I live near York and Wells beats it hands down. Parking is sometimes a little difficult but can usually be found reasonably close to the cRead moreottage. I would suggest the hedge at the front of the cottage needs reducing the patio area is very dark and uninviting . A very good base Hide

Great location and lovely cottage, parking for an elderly couple could be an issue. Plenty to do in Wells and the surrounding area especially Bath. Cottage very well equipped but definitely needs a replacement double bed.

After two postponements due to covid, we finally had our week here. Really lovely cottage, comfortable and well equipped. Exactly suited our requirements. Just five minutes past the Cathedral to the Market place and another five along the main street to the majority of the pubs and restaurants. Altogether a lovely City, and a great base for BristolRead more, Bath etc. Hard to find, even when you are standing right by it; behind a high hedge near No. 48 and through a GREEN gate (not red as in the notes).

A super, well appointed cottage in a great location. Very accommodating owners. The internet very slow so if you are planning on working on-line it maybe worth checking with the owner. That didn't spoil our enjoyment as we love walking and it's in a great position for that.

Absolutely brilliant location just a short walk to the cathedral. Very cosy cottage, well equipped. Owners provided various welcome extras which were very much appreciated especially the wine and sweetie jar! There were condiments to get you started eg olive oil, which was really helpful. Also there was plenty of anti Covid hand gel provided in theRead more kitchen and bathroom. We were worried about the on street parking before we went but we always found a spot close to the cottage.
