“Perfect Situation”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This comfortable and well appointed cottage could not be better situated. In a quiet and private mews just an easy 5 minute walk from the cathedral and shops, it is also well placed for The Fountain, one of Wells' best eateries, which you pass on your walk into town. The 3 storey cottage has a wonderful view of the cathedral and also of Glastonbury Tor. We enjoyed having our cheese & wine supper outside on the private little back terrace, watched over by a characterful grey cat from the neighbour's roof. The huge comfy bed was most welcoming at the end of each day's exploration of this most delightful little city.

Having an allocated parking space right opposite the cottage was a big bonus, too. There was so much to do and see in Wells that we didn't take the car out between our arrival and our departure. There are machines in the centre selling a local street map for £2 - well worth it. The Wednesday market was fun and we bought some wonderful cheeses and sausages. Clothing and jewellery was also on sale at the market. I also enjoyed pottering about in a wonderful hardware shop. There are free weekday lunchtime concerts at the music school by the cathedral, which we actually enjoyed from outside, sitting on a bench, looking at the cathedral's lovely architecture.

A big thanks to our hosts for the welcoming fresh milk, coffee, tea and biscuits. We really enjoyed a nice hot coffee after our long drive. I see from the visitors' book that many guests have returned two, three or even four times, which speaks more eloquently than I can about the delights of In-Between Cottage.

My partner and I enjoyed a long weekend in Wells, staying in this wonderful cottage. The cottage has everything you need and more! A short walk into Wells with a lovely gastro pub on the way. We ate at The Fountain and the food was fantastic. We also enjoyed our visit to Glastonbury. Wells has a great Saturday market which is well worth a visit. I would recommend this cottage without hesitation. Oh and it's also spotlessly clean!

“Perfect little hideaway, a stones throw to the beautiful city with stunning views”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just got back from a short break and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay more.

The house was fully equipped with everything you could need. Clean and tidy throughout; it's obvious the cottage has been updated yet it still holds it's charm.

The double bed was comfy and the views from the master bedroom across at the Cathedral and Glastonbury Tor in a morning was truly stunning. This could also be enjoyed on an evening from the main living/kitchen area.

The service from Linda was very prompt and I believe she truly cared that we enjoyed our stay, she was very helpful at allowing us to have our 22 month old daughter with us who also enjoyed the cottage and slept very peacefully in a travel cot we took and put up in the master bedroom.

We will be visiting again and would certainly recommend to friends and family.

Thank you Linda for a great stay.

“Small but perfectly formed”

Although In-B-Tween Cottage looks impossibly tiny from the outside, the light and airy interior with windows to front and back never seemed restricted. It is within easy walking distance from the Cathedral and town centre, and there is a small supermarket within a few hundred yards, open until 10.00pm even on a Sunday. The rooms are immaculately clean and wel-equipped, the king-size bed huge and comfortable, and the en-suite shower impressively powerful. Linda the owner was kind and helpful, we arrived after a long journey to find the cupboard already stocked with tea and real ground coffee, and a jug of fresh milk in the fridge. A delightful little place, just like Wells itself!

Reviewed 8 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We loved staying at the cottage. It was really comfortable with great views. Linda was a great host. We love Wells. Can't wait to go back. Will most definitely stay at Linda's cottage if we visit Wells again.

We wanted to stay in Wells for a few days to help celebrate a friend's birthday. Couldn't have chosen a better place, quiet, comfortable and spotless, with fantastic views from the bedroom window. Great location, just a short walk from the cathedral and town centre. Wells is definitely now one of our favourite towns, we will be back to see more.

“A tiny jewel”
Reviewed 6 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013
1
person found this review helpful

With only three rooms, one on each floor, a tiny outside space and a small and slightly awkward parking space, In-b-tween Cottage certainly can be described as tiny. It is however so delightfully arranged and fitted that we never felt squashed, and with splendid views of the Cathedral from the upper floors (and even of Glastonbury Tor from the top floor) there is no risk of claustrophobia. It is well located for the town centre, and alternatively a brief walk takes one into open countryside. The only downside is a surprising amount of traffic noise but overall this is of little consequence.

Thank you so much for your kind review, and for your appreciative words in our guestbook.
I am so sorry you experienced traffic noise - it is something that I have not been aware of, and which has not been brought to my attention before, so I am wondering whether there was some event bringing in extra traffic to Wells, or whether it is a possible problem during some climatic conditions. I am very glad that it did not adversely affect your enjoyment of your stay, and do hope you will come again. Thank you for looking after the cottage so well during your stay.
