    As before we loved being in this spacious, clean, light, quiet, well appointed flat which is so conveniently located. There was again the lovely generous gift of flowers and wine on arrival together with the thoughtful provision of such basics as milk, tea and coffee. We left a list of things that we thought could be improved in our previous evaluation. We saw that these had been noted and ticked off in the message we'd left in the Guest Book. We'd suggested that the kitchen lighting needed to be improved and indeed it has been. Also this time the boiler was working to perfection providing plenty of hot water for baths, showers and washing up and a good level of heat for the flat. As we cooked a meal every evening at the flat, kitchen equipment and conditions were important. There were good new pots in the kitchen as we had recommended. The frying pans are still not very good--we suggest that these be replaced. Last year we had a terrible time trying to figure out how to use the oven. We asked for printed instructions to be made available. There was a manual for the use of the hob but still no instructions for the oven. Happily, we managed to work it out and had several pans of delicious roasted vegetables! All in all we were impressed with the attention given to our remarks and suggestions. When we arrived the overhead light in the large bedroom was not working as the light bulb had been broken off in the socket. One day when we returned 'home' after a day out, we found that the television was on! The next day we noticed that the overhead bedroom light was working. Someone had come in the day before and set it right. We did not mind having someone come into the flat while we were away--especially to do such a good turn--but it would have been nice had they left a note to say they had been in. The flat is very near to Tesco and is close to the excellent shop, The Good Earth. Also it is easy to get a bus ( the station is nearby) to Glastonbury where there is a very fine health food supermarket (well worth visiting!), Earthfare. We enjoyed lunches at The Good Earth restaurant, the cafes at the Cathedral and the Bishop's Garden and in Glastonbury, The Rainbow Café. As vegans, we often struggle to find good food when we eat out but not so in Wells and Glastonbury. Vegans and vegetarians take note! Should the owner of the flat wish to invest in some improvements at some point, a blind in the kitchen would be nice to afford privacy and much firmer mattresses would be very good. However, we are overall really delighted with the flat. Even the fourth floor location (no lift) is a great free fitness workout. We look forward to staying here again.

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!
