This 16th-century cottage has been beautifully furnished in a vintage style and offers deceptively spacious self-catering accommodation. It is conveniently located in the centre of Wells, 150 yards from the high street and a five-minute walk to the market place and Cathedral.

The space

On entering this beautiful vintage-style, character cottage, you will step straight into the lounge which has original exposed beams and a wonderful flagstone floor that runs throughout the whole of the ground floor. The lounge also boasts a wood burner set in a large, striking, medieval inglenook fireplace, and a smart TV and DVD so you can snuggle up on the comfy sofa and watch your favourite movies.

The lounge leads to the pretty, cottage-style kitchen/diner, perfectly equipped with an electric AGA, which couldn’t be easier to use with one control knob for the hotplate and another for the ovens. There is a combination microwave/oven, fridge/freezer and dishwasher, and also a walk-in utility cupboard, conveniently housing the washing machine. Enjoy breakfast or supper in this light and airy room which opens out onto the enclosed, south-facing terrace garden.

Venturing outside from the kitchen/diner you will find yourself in the enclosed, pretty, terrace garden; a perfect space to enjoy a glass of wine and a spot of alfresco dining.

Heading up the cottage-style stairs is the first king-size bedroom, which is where a rare, medieval wall painting was discovered during the renovation process (and is on display). The large feature bathroom is also located on this floor and has a free standing Victorian bath, a walk-in shower and separate WC. Proceed up another set of cottage-style stairs (steep) to the second double bedroom with a double bed. This stunning bedroom is in the eaves of the cottage and has an impressive structure of beams.
