Wells: Although the smallest city in England, the atmosphere is more like that of small country market town. The cathedral is one of the architectural highlights of Britain, replete with magnificent Gothic carvings, a unique scissors vault to brace the building against shifting medieval foundations, and a marvellous chapter house. It also houses a wonderful clock, with mechanical knights who exchange blows every hour. Adjoining the Cathedral is the 13th century moated Bishop’s Palace - seat of the Bishop of Bath & Wells, famous for its swans who ring, twice daily, the bell beside the drawbridge for food. The Medieval Vicar’s Close is an architectural gem. Wednesday and Saturday are market days which are held in the central market place.
Somerset Carnivals: The Somerset Carnivals are highly regarded as the largest illuminated procession in the world. They occur late on in the year at various locations including: Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Chard, Ilminster, Glastonbury, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Taunton, Wellington, Wells, Weston-Super-Mare, and Yeovil.
They go back 400 years, and are one of the most spectacular events in Somerset today. In some of the bigger locations (such as Bridgwater), you can expect to see crowds of up to 150,000.
The carnival floats are designed and built by dedicated carnival clubs around the West Country. These clubs have many members who raise money throughout the year, and work tirelessly to achieve the spectacular carnival entries. The floats take part in the parade along with other entries; these range from clowns dancing in the streets to 100ft illuminated carnival floats (some with up to 30,000 light bulbs) pulled by tractors.
Children are most welcome and the property is non smoking throughout. Feature highlights within the property include French doors leading to a secluded courtyard garden. Spacious and perfect for families, Cathedral View boasts the highest standards of cleanliness and is beautifully appointed with a stylish contemporary interior.

Why Suzanne Hart chose Wells
We both love the beautiful City of Wells with it's medieval architecture and unique atmosphere and when this property came on the market we couldn't resist it.
What makes this house unique
We fell in love with the views of Wells Cathedral and Glastonbury Tor from the house. It is only a short walk down one of the oldest streets in Wells to the centre plus there is a very good pub at the end of this street!
