    • “An excellently equipped property which is spotlessly clean. Being all on one level and with twin beds made it most suitable for my elderly mother and I travelling . Wonderful location within easy distance of Wells where there are a number of supermarkets. The owner , a welcoming and friendly lady, has provided a 'home from home' and is on hand to offer whatever level of assistance or information required. We enjoyed a fabulous week in Westbury, visiting Wells with its impressive cathedral , Glastonbury village and abbey, Bath, Weston-super-Mare and Cheddar. A truly memorable holiday in superb accommodation.”

About the location


Wookey Hole 2 miles; Wells 4 miles; Cheddar 5 miles.

The Somerset village of Westbury-sub-Mendip, boasts a pub and local shops. It nestles beneath the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills half way between Cheddar Gorge and the attractive cathedral city of Wells, both around four miles away. The surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a wealth of scenic footpaths and rugged landscapes, a superb centre for caving and rock climbing, with nearby Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves both offering great days out. Alternatively, Wells, England’s smallest city, with its 13th century cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and twice weekly market is well worth a visit. With the picturesque Somerset levels, as well as mystic Glastonbury also an easy drive away, this attractive area makes a convenient and ideal touring base.
