    “A very comfortable cottage in the centre of Wells - apparently the smallest city in England and almost certainly one of the best and most beautiful.”

    The cottage itself was extremely comfortable, well appointed with a sunny back garden. The beds were sumptuous with beautiful bed linen. We were met by the very welcoming hosts and parked our car for the week at their house which is only five minutes walk away. We hope to return.
