The property

Wells 2 miles.

A delightful, detached Victorian cottage set in a peaceful location, just two miles from beautiful Wells, England’s smallest city.

Located at the end of a leafy private lane and overlooking fields and woodland, Greenmount Cottage is a perfect peaceful hideaway for friends and family to enjoy the Mendip Hills and the Somerset countryside.

Beautifully appointed throughout, there is a spacious sitting room with comfy sofas and a gas flame fire, ideal for cosy winter nights.

The well-equipped kitchen comes with a sociable dining table, or on sunny days, why not open the double doors and enjoy alfresco gatherings on the terrace overlooking the garden?

There are three bedrooms in this lovely cottage, including a master bedroom with a comfortable double bed and an en-suite shower room with large walk-in shower, whilst the twin and single bedroom both overlook the garden.

The garden is an ideal place to unwind after a day’s sightseeing, with views towards the Mendip Hills on one side and woodland on the other.

The historic centre of Wells is just two miles away and has many places to sit and relax, along with an array of independent shops, pubs and restaurants set around its lovely market square.

The beautiful cathedral, the Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close, the oldest residential street in Europe, are all well worth a visit.

Further afield you will find the Cheddar Gorge, Wookey Hole, Glastonbury, beaches at Weston-super-Mare, and Burnham-on-Sea and also the Somerset Levels, famous for birdwatching.

The vibrant cities of Bath and Bristol are also an easy drive away for some excellent shopping and sightseeing.

Greenmount Cottage is an ideal retreat for discovering the Somerset countryside and surrounding cities at any time of the year.

About the location


Coxley 2 miles; Shepton Mallet 6 miles; Glastonbury 6 miles; Cheddar 9 miles.

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. Close by, 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, a superb centre for caving and rock climbing, and nearby Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves, both offering great days out. With the picturesque Somerset Levels, as well as mystical Glastonbury, also an easy drive away, this beautiful city makes a convenient and ideal touring base. With so much to see and do, there is something to keep everyone entertained!
