Wells is England’s smallest city, nestling in the glorious Mendip Hills, and is full of stunning architecture, fabulous restaurants, bistros and shops and friendly people. There are charming cobbled streets amongst the main shopping area, all dominated by the majestic 12th century Cathedral and Bishop’s Palace. Perfectly placed in the heart of Somerset, Wells is within easy reach of a host of Somerset attractions including Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Regency Bath and historic city Bristol.


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.

About Suzanne Hart

We live in a village just outside of Cheddar which is about 7 miles from Wells.

Suzanne Hart purchased this house in 2007

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Great base to explore a fantastic Catedral City

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Wells for a weekend reunion at a friends nearby home. We were 5 - our two giorls, and my sister also staying with us. Cathedral view was the perect base for a lovely time in Wells. It is a spectacualr place, and the Cathedral and Bishops gardens are a must see, and the house is the perfect 10 min walk from all the areas of town that should be visited. Everything in the house was as described, and check in was easy (and we even were able to check in early thanks to the owners generosity). We booked it due to the number of posative reviews, and we were very happy with our choice. It is places like this that are the reason we rely on Home away for many of our vacation needs when traveliing across europe.

A beautiful apartment in beautiful Wells

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay we had here in Wells. This property is absolutely terrific. From the first contact with Suzanne til the day of departure, the process was as smooth as anyone could ask for. And the apartment is very comfortable and so well equipped - even a clothesline and clothes pins to hang laundry on the patio. It was immaculately clean and a wealth of information on the area was provided. The stairs to the 3rd floor gave us good exercise, but could be a problem for some guests. Thank you Suzanne for sharing your property with us and we will DEFINITELY stay here again if we have the good fortune to be able to return to southwest England.

The City of Wells is an ideal base for touring the West Country, with Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Regency Bath, Bristol and the seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare all in close proximity. For those who like to get some exercise there is excellent walking in the nearby Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (the West Mendip Way starts just half a mile from St Thomas Mews) with cycling and bird watching on the Somerset Levels. Sporting facilities in the area include racing at Wincanton and Bath, golf at Wells and near Oakhill. There is also a leisure centre in Wells.
