Overview

What makes this pod completely unique is its staggering, uninterrupted view of Wells Cathedral. The ideal balance between countryside escapism and city break, Chapterhouse offers couples a truly idyllic place to unwind away from a busy schedule while being just a stroll from Wells city and all it has to offer. Designed with perfect proportions that feel more boutique retreat than rustic, the pod’s interior feels contemporary, spacious and airy, with creature comforts galore. There’s a dining area, living room, kitchen and bedroom all laid out as open plan and a separate bathroom which includes a large walk-in shower complete with rain head. French doors open the entire space outside to a timber deck where you’ll be able to unwind in complete solitude, barbecuing in the sunshine or indulgently soaking in the wood-fired hot tub which has been tucked away to the side of the lodge.

Guests with their four-legged companions in tow will be pleased to know Chapterhouse welcomes pets, so for peace of mind, the fence surrounding the property completely encloses the space. There are also many lovely walks in the area for both humans and canines to explore including a public bridle way that lies directly behind the field. Of course, Wells is a mere stroll away, so you’ll be able to enjoy a coffee or luncheon at The Bishop’s Table within minutes of leaving your front door.

The city of Wells is by no means sprawling (in fact it's the smallest in England), however what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in sheer enchantment with its cobbled streets and market village atmosphere. It also happens to boast one of the most marvellous Medieval cathedrals in the land, and it's one that has been attracting at first pilgrims then visitors by their droves since the 13th Century. Huddled in the heart of rural Somerset at the foot of the Mendhips, Wells is a merge of two attractive worlds, one of Gothic architecture, narrow streets, pavement cafes and independent shops, and the other of countryside quiet and nature-infused pursuits.

*For a truly magical experience or to celebrate a special occasion, the owners offer balloon rides from the site. There is also a chauffeur service to and from Glastonbury Festival. Please enquire with the Luxury Coastal team at the time of booking

Had a wonderful time staying at the chapterhouse. Had everything we needed. Hot tub was brilliant even on a drizzly day. Just a short walk across the field and you’re in town. The owner of the farm Michael was great, couldn’t do enough for us. Would love to come back soon. Thank you!

Booked for a week getaway with my partner and dog, absolutely fab. Great place, perfect walks into Wells and around for the dog. Lovely host. Soon to be 3 pods next to each other, but the spacing between each maintains a good amount of privacy. The hampers we’re great and gave us some lovely surprises on arrival too. Would recommend + will be booking again.

A perfect weekend getaway for my partner and I. Ideal for our small sausage dog. The cabin was amazing - clean, modern, comfy! And the amenities (hot tub, fire pit, WiFi etc) were all in working order and made the stay incredible. We soaked in the hot tub under the stars for a once-in-a-lifetime evening. Thank you!

An incredibly relaxing stay
4.7/5

The Cathedral View eco pod was a lovely place to stay. The location was superb, it felt very private with a great view - but was also less than 10 minutes easy walk to the amenities in Wells. The wood fired hot tub was actually very easy to use, and it was great to have such a plentiful supply of wood. The pod itself was cosy, comfortable and well-kitted out, better than many much larger holiday cottages. When the sun was out we relaxed on the deck, and when it rained we could relax inside and listen to the rain. A great getaway.

Gemma, 23 Apr 2023

Hi Gemma, thank you for your review. We are so happy to hear you enjoyed the pod. We hope to welcome you back through our doors again one day. Best Wishes, The Luxury Coastal Team.

The place was even better than it looked in the pictures. Perfect for the two of us with the dog. Really close to the centre and you still felt you were in the middle of the countryside, best of both worlds. Would highly recommend.
