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.

About Sandra Denmeade

We have always lived on the Mendips and would be delighted to help anyone with information that will help them make the most of their holiday in Somerset. We are keen walkers and know lots of footpaths and good places to visit.

Sandra Denmeade purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Sandra Denmeade chose Mendip (Glastonbury)

We love Wells because it's such a very friendly city. It's so small & easy to get around, with lots of independent businesses offering a wide variety of food, goods & activities to suit all tastes. You're also right in the middle of beautiful surrounding countryside, so it offers the perfect mix.

Cosy Cottage spotlessly clean

  • 5 of 5

A little gem of a cottage, literally around the corner from Wells Cathedral, perfect location.

I suggest Google Earth, if you have it, as you can see exactly where the cottage is, otherwise its easy to miss the entrance to the little courtyard. Its situated in a gap between two cottages. The cottage is bright, pleasantly furnished, and spotlessly clean. A nice little welcome pack awaited us of milk fruit cake and bottle cider ! Along with a nice card from the owner, updating all the little quirks of the cottage. Lovely well equipped kitchen, comfy lounge, and good sized bedrooms.

Would definitely recommend this cottage. It was excellently placed for exploring Wells, and good roads for travelling to Glastonbury and the Coast.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review, and our 5 stars! We would recommend Google Earth to spot our entrance, as we have the best of both worlds - tucked away with parking, but within easy flat 5 - 8 minutes walking distance of the historic attractions and High Street amenities of our beautiful city of Wells.

Lucy's Cottage - Home from Home

  • 5 of 5

We spent a nice long weekend at Lucy's. A lovely cosy cottage in the centre of Wells but tucked away from passing traffic. A short walk to the Cathedral, palace and city centre and nice restaurants. The car parking was an added bonus and the owners provided good instructions on getting there etc. We will go again.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review John, and the 5 stars, we're really pleased you enjoyed your stay at Lucy's Cottage, and the directions made us easy to find, as we are tucked away, but also very central to all amenities. We hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Sandra

First impression - very good - and that impression remaind!

  • 5 of 5

Ideally situated for touring Somerset and perfectly located for visiting family in and around the area. five minute walk to the centre of the city - excellent market, very charming city.

The cottage was lovely, clean, quiet and off road.

The bus service was exceptional - frequent buses all over and on time.

I highly recommend this property and the welcome from the owner. The welcome gift and card was a good personal touch - thank you.

A cosy cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was warm and cosy, very clean and very well equipped and decorated. It was an excellent place to stay and we didn't want to leave. It was ideal for looking around Wells, and for buses to other areas.

Parking was a bit disappointing. We only have a small car but it was difficult, and would have been worse if more neighbours had had cars

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and we're really pleased you found our cottage so delightful, welcoming and well located, both within the city and for surrounding attractions, and didn't want to leave. We're sorry you found the parking difficult, and agree it takes a little practice to get in and out, but we have to weigh this up with the golden bonus of actually having a parking space adjoining the cottage. We are 1 of 6 holiday lets in the vicinity, and we are the only ones with parking, which we hope benefits our guests.

We loved making this warm, comfortable and well equipped cottage our home for the week

  • 5 of 5

We felt at home here as soon as we arrived. Lucy's Cottage is very warm, homely and welcoming and had everything we needed, including a well equipped kitchen. The beer, chocs and milk in the fridge were also lovely additions!

The location is excellent, set back from the main road in a quiet cul de sac and only a couple of minutes walk to Wells' beautiful cathedral. Also a great base for exploring the area. Cheddar Gorge, Bath, Glastonbury Tor and the coast are all easily accessible.

Thanks for having us, we will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Thank you for the recommendation, and we hope to be able to welcome you back in the future. Sandra

Quiet, clean and nice and warm! We could walk easily to the center of the town. Would recommend it

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the dark and had a little difficulty in finding the cottage, but a neighbor pointed it out. We explored Wells, Cheddar Gorge and visited the attractions in Bath.
