    Very convenient for all parts of the Levels, coast and surrounding hills. Set in the grounds of the owners house in a quiet position away from the road. Absolute privacy and independence followed a very friendly welcome. Use of a terrace and bbq was a good feature.

The property

An original detached stone coach house in the grounds of a Somerset farmhouse, in the village of Henton, 4 miles from Wells.

This attractive cottage, provides cosy, welcoming and comfortable accommodation in a quiet countryside setting, with views towards the picturesque Mendip Hills.

The pretty sitting room has sliding doors opening onto a small private patio with furniture, overlooking the owners' garden.

There is a well-equipped kitchen with dining area, ideal for cooking and sampling the local Somerset produce.

Upstairs, there are two bedrooms, one double with far-reaching views and a twin room.

The countryside surrounding this cottage offers excellent walking and horse riding opportunities and for the more adventurous, Cheddar Gorge is a renowned caving and rock climbing centre.

The beautiful city of Wells, with its 12th century cathedral, the oldest medieval street in Europe and stunning architecture, will provide plenty to charm visitors.

Also, marvel at the caves and a host of family attractions at Cheddar and Wookey Hole, or spend a day on the beaches at Burnham-on-Sea and Weston-super-Mare, which are less than half an hour's drive away from this family-friendly cottage near Wells.

This delightful cottage provides a peaceful and comfortable rural base from which to explore England's smallest city.
