The perfect farm cottage, convenient to Wells and its cathedral, an ideal host in Gill Cumming.

5 of 5
A wonderful to wake to and to end the day with. Equipped kitchen. Firewood provided in abundance. Comfortable bed. The shower, always important when we travel, gave warm/hot water in abundance. The cottage has its own secure enclosure and we never felt any need to lock our doors. We stayed three nights and drove to Stonehenge, Glastonbury, and many other areas we hoped to visit. Highest recommendation!

Lovely, lovely, lovely

5 of 5
A little pocket of peacefulness. Surrounded by fields and plenty of little villages to visit. The cottage was lovely and modern on the inside with all mod-cons whilst looking fantastically country, cottage like in appearance. Spending the evenings eating dinner outside in the sunshine whilst watching the farmers cutting their fields were the simple pleasures we were looking for during a week of peace and quiet. Whilst being only 1/2 hour from Bath which is always a good city to stroll around if you miss a little hustle and bustle.
