About The Owner

The owners are a married couple. Living 20 minutes away.

The Owner purchased this house in 2006

Why The Owner chose Mendip (Glastonbury)

We choose this property because it is a lovely, individual house with character. We felt it was ideally located.

What makes this house unique

Staying at this house, you can really experience what it feels like to live in Wells as it has great character and ambience. The garden is lovely to look out on and sit in. To be able to walk out of the door and reach the amenities in a minute is wonderful.
