  • "Very nice place to stay and within walking distance of the city of Wells."

    Lovely quiet housing estate and well landscaped. Location is great for trips out to Bath and Weston super Mare with Clarkes retail village and Glastonbury just up the road. House had everything needed including WiFi, and comfortable beds, just a shame the garden was not in the sun and patio set was rusty, all in all would go back.

  • "Excellent location, short walk into Wells with plenty of places to eat."

    Generally clean, however living room furniture needs replacing, it's stained, and the chairs are impossible to sit comfortably on. Unable to use outside area as the furniture is rusty and the plants have overgrown around the table. There's only half a shower screen so the bathroom floor got wet through every time. The bed was large and very comfortable, with good quality bedding. Needs a little TLC to be up to scratch.

  • "Lovely little terrace house within walking distance of Wells."

    Clean and tidy. Extremely quiet considering on an estate Could do with a couple of little things, chairs in lounge more suited to a bedroom, very uncomfortable, shelves in main bedroom bare wood and just painted roughly with undercoat, this could a design feature but needs to be one or the other, painted or bare. Only two chairs on patio and very rusty,

  • "The settee, armchairs and lounge carpet needs a good clean very stained."

    New pillows required. The shower screen needs replacing as there is half of it missing so difficult not to get water on the floor. The patio table and chairs are to rusty to use. Apart from this it was a nice house and within easy walking distance to the town, 15 minutes. Wells is a lovely place. Apart from these easily sorted problems we had a lovely holiday

  • "The cottage was in an ideal location but was poor due to the cleanness; the pillows smelt damp; an oder was very apparent in the kitchen and grease on the top of the cupboards and due to the cobwebs and their occupants clearly no actual deep cleaning had been done despite COVID."

    The furniture was all very stained. The outside garden was overgrown and the garden furniture unusable due to rust (this had already been highlighted previously) A very lovely house but just needs some tender loving care !!

  • "Lovely city and easy driving to other nearby towns."

    Good location with an easy flat 15 minute walk into the city and an easy 2 minute drive or 10 minute walk to two large supermarkets. The house is clean and modern with a neat little garden and easy parking which is always a big bonus in any city. Perfect really.

  • "The house was very comfortable but the most positive aspect was the distance to the centre of Wells, which was easily walkable with plenty of places for coffee or a meal."

    Visit the cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace, very interesting.

  • "This was a spotlessly clean, well equipped modern house in a perfect location for walking, sightseeing and birdwatching in the area."

    It is situated on a quiet road. Unfortunately the day we arrived, new neighbours moved in and immediately started a major makeover of their new house. The drilling and hammering ran from 09.00 a.m. to approximately 7.00 p.m. each day but I guess they will have finished by now and peace and tranquility will have returned! As we were out most of the day and the noise stopped at night, it did not really spoil the holiday. The sun shone all week!

  • "The property is in an excellent position for touring the area as it is in a quiet estate just off the A39 but in easy walking distance of central Wells."

    Plenty of supermarkets to choose from too. Very comfortable but it might feel a little small if there were 4 people staying.

  • "Good contact from the host."

    Ideal for walking into Wells and seeing surrounding area. Only thing that I would recommend is an update of pillows. Amazing range of equipment for self catering everything needed for a holiday quick cook. Nice to have cleaning equipment like dish soap as makes you confident last Tennant will have washed up properly.

  • "The cottage is compact, ideal for two to four people though."

    It is well equipped and well situated on a quiet estate, a level walk into the centre of Wells. It has the bonus of a designated parking space to the rear. The house had been cleaned well but there was some old staining on the setee and an armchair. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable with plenty of storage but the pillows were lumpy and past their best and there was only one on each of the single beds. The small negatives did not spoil our stay and we would recommend The Saplings to friends and anyone looking for a cosy place to stay while visiting delightful Wells.

  • "Great location."

    .. as we were able to walk into the city centre, local supermarkets (Lidl, Waitrose) etc. Nice to have kitchen bits & bobs... tea, coffee, sugar, condiments; and the house was cosy. Shame the property doesn’t have a dishwasher (would have been better than having the washer/dryer) Overall we enjoyed our stay & would go back again.

  • "The cottage was my home for two weeks."

    There was everything I needed. Something important to me is that It was very clean. I liked very much the folder of information. That it is a very private little place was a comfort. I would recommend this cottage to anyone, especially those from overseas because of the fact that including all of the above, it is safe place to stay.

    A light, airy and pleasantly decorated property with off road parking. Kitchen is small and compact but with everything needed including washing machine (which we didn’t use) and full length fridge freezer. Off street private parking space at rear accessed via back gate. Good location for exploring the area including Glastonbury, Wookey Hole and Cheddar Gorge.

  • "The property is very small so was a bit crowded with 4 adults."

    The parking for two cars was a nightmare, we accidentally parked in someone else's space and got blocked in, as we were told we couldn't park in front of the property even though plenty did. The down stairs toilet needs a toilet brush and the vacuum was next to useless. We found personal hairs on the beds and floors in one room, there was hair in the bath plug hole and some of the plates in the cupboard were dirty. The house was nice but the walls were very thin, so you could hear everything when people used the toilet and next door running up and down the stairs at 2am and the boiler coming into life at 5ish every morning. The location as okay, I am disabled (use a stick) and just about managed it but any body else with more severe mobility needs would find it impossible.

  • "We got a little confused as to where you could park, the brochure said one allocated space and Kirbside parking."

    However Crest who are building homes said don't park on the road outside the house and they had employed somebody to monitor this. It was awkward when we had visitors, we parked on the road in the end. That was the only downside to a really lovely holiday.

Wells, England’s smallest city, is named after the springs which still bubble up today in the grounds of its splendid Bishop's Palace with its famous moat. Adjacent is the beautiful 12th century cathedral situated within a most attractive cathedral close and green. Nearby, Vicars Close is home to the oldest complete medieval street in Europe, and the quaint market square offers an array of interesting shops, boutiques and restaurants, and a colourful twice-weekly market. The surrounding Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty provides a wealth of scenic footpaths and rugged landscapes, and is a superb base for caving and rock climbing, and for road, biking and mountain biking. Nearby are the attractions of Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves, both offering great days out. The picturesque Somerset Levels, as well as mystical Glastonbury are also situated an easy drive away.
