The property

Sitting in a prominent position in Wells, Somerset lies 4 Priest Row, an attractive three-bedroom grade 2 listed cottage set over three floors.

Ideal for families or a group of friends looking to explore the local area, this property offers a bright and airy décor and a lovely courtyard to enjoy the summer evenings.

Upon entering the property the sitting room greets you, hosting two sofas and an armchair for the group to cosy up on in front of the TV while the gas stove roars following a day out discovering the local attractions.

From here, enter the kitchen/diner which is well-equipped and certain to entice any budding chefs to rustle up some tasty meals on the gas hob and electric oven, as well as containing a handy washing machine and all the appliances you could need throughout your stay.

Moving through the property and up to the first floor, the double bedroom welcomes you to get some rest, provides you with a vanity mirror where you can prepare for your day, and includes a characterful period fireplace.

The second bedroom is a bunk room, ideal for the children in the group but both beds are large enough to accommodate adults too.

The room has storage for your belongings and lovely light décor.

Completing the first floor, guests will also benefit from the shower room, home to a walk-in shower, basin and WC for the whole family to freshen up in the mornings and between activities.

Occupying the entire top floor is the last bedroom, boasting a plush king sized bed and a skylight on the sloping eave ceiling letting in an abundance of natural light, and yet more storage for you to unpack your belongings.

There are views of St Cuthbert’s church from the front window and views of the historic Wells Cathedral from the rear window.

Back outside, enjoy a spot of al fresco dining in the leafy courtyard, where your four-legged friend can stretch their legs ahead of a long stroll through the city and surrounding footpaths.

If the chef of the group fancies a break, why not try one of the local restaurants almost on the doorstep of the property, The Courtyard Restaurant boasting meals made from local produce and a largely gluten-free menu, or perhaps venture further into the city to The Greek Taverna or Da Luciano Pizzeria for some European cuisine.

The popular Wells market, selling and array of local goods, and the quaint high street are just a short walk round the corner from Priest Row.

Whilst staying at the property discover the nearby attractions, such as the Wookey Hole Caves, where you can explore the caves, while there is also plenty of educational sources on Dinosaurs, Minerals and Rocks, Paper Making and the Stone Age, fun for all the family!
