“A lovely cottage in a beautiful, peaceful location”

The cottage is in a lovely location in a beautifully designed development in the old Mendip Hospital buildings designed by Gilbert Scott.
The cottage itself is spotlessly clean, really well equipped and very comfortable. The location is very quiet. Lots of parking available.
We have stayed in many holiday rentals and consider 4 Lower Chapel Court to be up there with some of the best!
Thanks also to Chris for the many helpful tips and directions!
We would love to come back sometime.

“Excellent indeed”

First of all, the development in which the cottage is situated is a delight - designed by Pugin (he of the houses of parliament) and sensitively converted. It feels like a peaceful haven and it even has the feel of a film set, as it is so different from the norm.
The cottage itself is small, but perfectly formed, prettily done out and with excellent attention to detail. The care with which the cottage is prepared and the equipment provided are very impressive.
In the interests of balance, I suppose I would have to say that there would not be many places to walk to if the half hour into Wells is too much for you, but that was not an issue for us. The walk itself is very pleasant, too.
I should love to return.
