“Home away from home”
Reviewed 25 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

My four week stay in The Green House has been wonderful. It feels like home, and is very comfortable and clean. There are lots of books, DVDs and board games for the occasional wet day at home. It is ideally situated in a quiet street, is very close to the shops, and a short stroll to the cathedral. The owners have been wonderful - pleasant and easygoing if you need to contact them. The key turned up in the mail to my home address in Australia well before leaving on my journey. If I return to Wells, The Green House is where I will stay.

“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stayed in wells for a long weekend with friends in the green house, a lovely house well presented with attention to detail and spotlessly clean, a pretty rear garden, quiet street and perfect for cathedral and town, great nights sleep and a very warm and comfortable house to stay in , would recommend as a base for wells and surrounding area.

“A gem of a place”

We were blown away by this tasteful and elegant house in central Wells. The photos don't do it justice.We were very impressed by the attention to detail. Tthe house was immaculate & spotlesswhen we arrived and was above average in the equipment provided. It sems there is nothing the owner hasn't thought of to make guests comfortable.The kitchen is spacious, as is the adjacent dining room. There is a delightful garden with a seating area and on the table was a beautiful fresh posy of flowers. The bedrooms are very comfortable and the whole property is double-glazed and therefore very quiet. this is truly an exceptional place to stay.

Great little cottage, I stayed with my mam and a friend, but would be great for families. Very clean and tidy, with a lovely wood burner, which was nice as we stayed in January. Excellent base for exploring Wells and surrounding area.

“Lovely Cottage”
Reviewed 30 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

person found this review helpful

We felt the owners had understated the property, which was a very pleasant surprise, the pictures whilst accurate did not convey how spacious and well maintained this character cottage might appear from them and the description.

Ideal for Wells doubt one could be better located parking appeared to be ok on Sundays & between 5pm to 9am (from the road signs) .

We stayed for four nights and had the most relaxing week ever. Thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful stay in the lovely house so much so that we quite honestly did not want to leave. So close to the city and with so much to see in the area. Highly recommend the green house x we will be back.

“Home from home”
Reviewed 12 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Really comfortable house in the heart of a lovely city. Only 5 minute walk to anywhere central.

The cottage is very clean and well maintained, and offers every mod con. Lovely paved area at the rear which is totally private. The double bedroom had the best bed I have ever slept in! So comfortable. Lots of extras in the kitchen, tea, coffee, condiments etc.

Loved it. Excellent value for money. Should we ever take another trip to Wells, we would love to stay here again.
