    “The flat is in an excellent location--very central which was especially good for us as we have no car.”

    It was very clean. airy, open and nicely furnished with good pictures, books, great views from some of the windows and very well equipped. We were surprised and pleased to find roses and a bottle of wine on our arrival. There were a few problems: no instructions on how to use the oven (we looked up the model on our tablet and worked it out but it was a challenge); the boiler did not work properly so at times we were too cold and the hot water for baths and showers was unreliable and ...

    It was very clean. airy, open and nicely furnished with good pictures, books, great views from some of the windows and very well equipped. We were surprised and pleased to find roses and a bottle of wine on our arrival. There were a few problems: no instructions on how to use the oven (we looked up the model on our tablet and worked it out but it was a challenge); the boiler did not work properly so at times we were too cold and the hot water for baths and showers was unreliable and sometimes unavailable; no lift is a drawback although we were able to manage--on our arrival a kind resident carried up our bags!; there was not enough light in the kitchen; and the pots and pans were really inadequate--they need to be replaced. We cooked a meal together every night so the kitchen facilities were really important to us. The knives were excellent! We did enjoy the flat overall and certainly would recommend it and be happy to use it again. We especially appreciated being so close to the cathedral (we attended several services), the bus station--we made many day trips and food shopping venues. It really was quite lovely to be able to see the sunrise over St.Cuthbert's and the cathedral whilst lying in bed (from one of the bedrooms).

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. The beautiful city of Bath, with its Roman Baths, Thermae Bath Spa, The Theatre Royal and wonderful shops, is under 30 miles away, as is the vibrant city of Bristol, which boasts a multitude of attractions, including The Zoo, Theatres, the Aquarium, the Arnol Fini Art Gallery and many more. All in all, this beautiful city makes a convenient and ideal touring base. With so much to see and do, there is something to keep everyone entertained!
