Weeks stay at this beautiful cottage
This cottage is beautiful it has been restored beautifully, it is a perfect size for a couple with everything you could wish for and spotlessly clean. The owners were brilliant at keeping in touch and sending all the information required. Wells is a lovely city with a nice range of shops and restuarants. Parking can be a challenge although we managed to get a space everyday, however when you are parked you dont really want to lose your space by going outside of Wells in the evening, unless you are prepared to get a taxi.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful cottage, great location
St Ethelreda's is a beautiful place to stay, with extremely attractive decor and furnishings. The cottage is in a great central location making access to the city easy, but it is also tucked away so stays nice and quiet. The interior is fantastically kitted out and has everything you could possibly need. The exterior is old and beautiful. Parking is also no problem in the local streets. We were provided with a lovely welcome pack to get us started too which was great! We will definitely be back and highly recommend a stay here! Thanks very much Helen and Mark.

Wells "Mews" cottage
Wonderfully clean and well appointed property very close to the city centre. We loved the "mews" feel of the location which was remarkably free from traffic noise. Would definitely return next time we're down Somerset way. Helen & Mark were excellent owners who helped with lots of useful info of things happening in the local area.

5/5 Excellent

Peace and quiet in Wells
Everything was top class, so much thought has been used in the fittings in this gorgeous cottage, even though it's a stone's throw from the centre, it is so peaceful and quiet.
