With the atmosphere of a market town, Wells, the smallest city in England, is a captivating place to visit. Characterised by its Medieval cathedral and historic cobbled streets, the city is also awash with independent shops and restaurants, creating the perfect place to explore. Nestled in the heart of rural Somerset, at the base of the Mendips, the location is also a dream for those who love spending time in nature, with rolling countryside and natural beauty right on its doorstep.

Contemporary, spacious, and airy, its design blends modern luxury with rustic touches. An open plan layout integrates the dining area, living space, kitchen, and bedroom, all of which look out over the meadow and towards Wells Cathedral in the distance.

French doors connect the interior to the outside timber deck, where guests can unwind in the sunshine, and a private hot tub tucks away to the side of the property providing the ultimate place for relaxation. A fire bowl serves as both a grill for outdoor feasts and a spot to cosy up with a hot chocolate or glass of wine in the evenings.

The West Front also welcomes to pets, and the property is fully enclosed by a secure fence, offering peace of mind. A public bridleway lies just beyond the field and the numerous walks and trails surrounding the site, invite both human and canines to get outdoors for fresh air and exercise. And if you crave a taste of city life, Wells is a leisurely stroll away with places like The Bishop's Table offering a delightful spot for a leisurely coffee or brunch.

*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
