About the property

Cottage in Wells, Somerset, England, UK - Fully Refurbished, In A Small Close, 2 Minutes Walk From The Historic Cathedral And Bishops Palace

This lovely cottage, with its relaxing rooms & all the facilities to provide a home away from home, is in the heart of Wells, England’s smallest city. Unusually for Wells it offers a parking space, so you can park your car, relax and explore all Wells has to offer.

Facilities include kitchen/diner, lounge with stairs to first floor; double and twin bedrooms, sleeping 4 (with space for travel cot); modern bathroom including bath with electric shower over and heated towel rail.

The Cathedral is probably the best known historic building in Wells, but there are lots more to discover. Vicars Close, said to be the oldest continuously inhabited street in Europe, the Bishops Palace, still home to the Bishop of Bath and Wells, a tablet commemorating William Penn who founded Pennsylvania.

A fabulous market is held in Wells twice a week offering a wealth of goods. All this within 5 minutes walk! For outdoor types, the Somerset levels offer excellent flora and fauna and bird-watching, with renowned RSPB sites. For walkers, a vast wealth of footpaths criss-cross the area, including The East and West Mendip Way, provide something for all ranges of age and ability.

Cosy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Lucy's cottage is a little ripper! Very conveniently located, warm, comfortable - and we greatly appreciated the Christmas decorations and mince pies. Would certainly come again. (Noted in the guest book that some people have stayed 2, 3 and 4 times - says it all, doesn't it?)

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review and our 5 stars, and your comments in our guest book, they're very much appreciated. We're pleased you found Lucy's so welcoming, and hope it met all your expectations. As you gathered from our guest book, we have guests who make multiple visits, (current guest on visit no.6, and already booked for next year), so hopefully we're doing something right. Have a fabulous Christmas and hope to be able to welcome you back again on your next visit to the UK.

Lovely homely cottage

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cozy cottage, with everything you need. Literally a stroll to the Cathedral and town, handy for Longleat, Western, Stourhead, Bath etc. Parking not as bad as some said we have a large family car (Zafira) and managed with care. Would highly recommend.

Wonderful cottage in the heart of Wells.

  • 5 of 5

We found it to be a very comfortable home right in the heart of Wells. Also with a good sized, well-equipped kitchen-dining room and comfortable beds in 2 bedrooms upstairs. Everything we needed was provided and we enjoyed our 4 day stay. It was just a few minutes’ walk to the Cathedral and Town Centre which we really appreciated.

Lovely, cosy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

Have stayed in this cottage several times because we love it! Cosy, comfortable and has everything you need for a thoroughly enjoyable stay. Excellent position within 5 mins' walk of the cathedral/Market Place. Useful parking space - very rare in Wells! - if only for a small car. (Tip: drive forwards into the space and reverse out round the building and into the area in front of No.1 next door - then you'll be able to drive forward out into the street at a straighter angle, to avoid scraping wheels; we have learnt this to our cost!) We will certainly visit Lucy's Cottage again.
