Overview

About the property

Cottage in Wells, Somerset, England - Beautiful Location

The cottage was built in 1745 and has recently been renovated throughout. Conveniently located within the conservation area of Wells, Somerset in the heart of the South West of England. The Cathedral is probably the best known historic building but there is lots more to discover. All this within 5 minutes walk! Wells itself is within easy reach of Bristol, Bath, Glastonbury and the Mendip Hills. Cheddar Gorge/ Wookey Hole and so much more! Within 20 minute drive you have Clarks Village Designer Outlet. For outdoor types the Somerset Levels are renowned for offering excellent facilities for those who wish to bird watch or ramble at the RSPB centres of Shapwick Heath and Ham Wall which are easily reached in around 15 minutes by car.

About Lorraine Hartley

I have recently renovated this beautiful cottage. The original part of the house dates back to 1745.

The property is located within 200 metres of Wells Cathedral, Bishops Palace, independent shops, restaurants and the twice weekly farmers market (Wed & Sat)

I hope visitors staying at 6 Tor Street will relax and unwind as they enjoy all that Wells and Somerset has to offer.

If I can help in any way either before ,during or after your booking please do not hesitate to contact me.

Lorraine Hartley purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Lorraine Hartley chose Mendip (Glastonbury)

I love Wells because of the excellent facilities in the area. The historic City of Wells boasts an excellent selection of restaurants, bars and shops.

The area is easily accessible via the M4/M5 and A303 and is an ideal location for enjoying all the West Country's amenities.

What makes this cottage unique

Beautiful surroundings, lots to do.

SHORT BREAKS ARE AVAILABLE PLEASE CONTACT OWNER FOR DETAILS.MIN 3 NIGHTS AVAILABLE.

The perfect holiday home!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at the cottage in Wells. Never have we seen such a perfect place. Everything you needed was in the cottage. We realy enjoyed the welcoming pack, a bottle of wine included! The city of Wells is at your doorstep. The private parkingplace in front of the house was a big plus!

Lorraine, thanks for everything, we really had a great time there!! We wil definitely will come again!!!

Still a beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second 2 week holiday at this property, the first being two years ago and the standard of excellence has been maintained. Great attention to detail has been made and the cottage is spotless. All fixtures, fittings and those extra touches that make it so homely are all to a high level.

The property is perfectly situated for exploring the centre of Wells and beyond with plenty of eating and drinking establishments available.

The main aim of a holiday is to get some rest and relaxation and the comfort and cosiness of this cottage helps you to achieve this.

Lorraine and Paul are such friendly hosts and it was lovely to see them again. We will return for a third visit!

Jan & Brian.

Perfect place to stay in wells

  • 5 of 5

We've just returned from our 2nd visit at this lovely cottage . The cottage is beautifully decorated and spotless . Lorraine and Paul have gone above and beyond in furnishing this lovely cottage with no expense spared . There is everything you need there to have a lovely break in the lovely city of wells .

The cottage is 2 minutes from wells cathedral and high street with lots of shops and cafes and restaurants .

The cottage also has a lovely garden with lots of plants and shrub . There is also a barbecue there if you have the good weather to enjoy it .

We booked another week there before we left for next year .

Book early to avoid dissappointment as it very popular and does get booked really quickly .

A memorable stay!

  • 5 of 5

We quickly grew very attached to this lovely little cottage in Wells! We've done many rentals over the years and this was one of the very best! It is incredibly well-equipped with many thoughtful touches everywhere in addition to being very comfortable and so tastefully decorated. The location is ideal.........close to the cathedral and the center of Wells. We are especially grateful to Lorraine and Paul, the owners, who were very welcoming from the first email, so helpful during our stay, and most generous in helping out with a health issue during our time there.. We would love to return some day!

Lovely little cottage in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the most well equipped holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. Lorraine has thought of everything you could possibly need plus lots of extras to make it a comfortable home from home. Our party was a small family of two adults and a 4 year old and we had a lovely time here. We had fantastic weather and enjoyed the sun trap garden. We had lots of days out in the local area where there is tons to do, and it is not too far to visit Bath and Bristol. Highly recommended!
