Created with perfect proportions that feel more boutique retreat than rustic, this 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. But what makes The Nave so incredibly special is its unrivalled view of Wells Cathedral which can be seen from nearly every angle.

Treat yourselves to morning lie-ins with the French doors open and enjoy the magnificent outlook or step out on to the timber deck where you’ll be able to unwind in the sunshine with a cup of coffee and a good book. Designed with relaxation in mind the pod comes complete with its own private wood-fired hot tub which has been tucked away to the side of the lodge, and a fire bowl which doubles as an outdoor grill that's perfect for chilled out evenings and al fresco dinners.

What Wells lacks in size it more than makes up for in enchantment, in fact this tiny city (the smallest in England) with its cobbled streets and market village atmosphere, also happens to boast one of the most marvellous Medieval cathedrals in the land, and as such, has been welcoming pilgrims and visitors by their droves since the 13th Century. Huddled in the heart of rural Somerset at the foot of the Mendips, the city 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.

Guests with their four-legged companions in tow will be pleased to know The Nave 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.

*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
