                                                                                                      We enjoyed our time in Wells, with Lucy's Cottage proving to be an ideal base less than 200 metres from the end of Cathedral Green. For much of the time we were able to just leave the car parked up and forget about it. Access was much easier than anticipated, with the private, off street, parking much valued. The large kitchen is one of the best equipped that we have experienced and the property was warm throughout and readily maintained room temperature. A minor house-keeping task is required on small areas of the grouting on the bathroom tiles and the second from the top tread of the stairs will require some attention as it seemed to give a little when going upstairs. Thank you to Sandra & Nigel for the use of your cottage. We would recommend Lucy's Cottage to anyone looking for somewhere convenient to stay in Wells and would hope to stay there when we next go to Wells. This is our first experience of OwnersDirect which seems to work very smoothly. The only downside appears to be that OwnersDirect and HomeAway its parent organisation seem to want to fill my inbox with unrequested junk mail even though I have ticked the appropriate box for no such items.

Gave us a lot of information about the places to visit. Private parking was a bonus. Thank you Helen for introducing us to Leon and Vanessa, that really made our holiday. Hopefully, we will be back one day.
