Find My Favourite Holiday Cottages in Wells

The City of Wells is England’s smallest city, but what it lacks in size, it more than makes up for in wonderful architectural heritage. Located in the heart of the East Somerset Countryside, Wells is one of those delightful English cathedral cities that, through its sheer charm, draws visitors back time and time again. Perhaps best known for its magnificent cathedral, one to rival York or Ely in appearance and scale, as well a wealth of historic, beautiful architecture, Wells, nicely placed between Bath and Glastonbury and offers a choice of stylish holiday cottages for the discerning visitor. Walk down Vicars Close, a medieval cobbled street reputedly the oldest continually occupied street in Europe, or watch the swans tolling the bell for tea in the moat at the beautiful Bishops Palace.
