The West Country region

The West Country is an informal term for the area of south western England roughly corresponding to the modern South West England government region.

It is often defined to encompass the historic counties of Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset and the City of Bristol, while the counties of Gloucestershire and Wiltshire are also often included.

It is amongst the most beautiful regions of the United Kingdom and is rich in history and culture.


The historic City of Wells is just a short 45 minute drive from the beautiful City of Bath (UNESCO World Heritage City). The 22 mile route heads over the Mendip Hills and opens up a gateway to the one of England's less explored gems - Somerset. Wells makes an ideal destination for a holiday break and has much to see in it as well as providing an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.

Wells is a medieval city nestling on the southern side of the Mendip Hills with the mystic Somerset Levels stretching away to the south and west. The history of Wells goes right back to Roman times when we know that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble up here. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.

Wells is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It can call itself a city because of the famous 13th century Cathedral. It remains remarkably unspoilt and has many other historic buildings including the moated Bishop's Palace, Vicars' Close, St Cuthbert's Church and a good local museum. The Wells Market Place, with lively markets twice a week, the narrow streets and an eclectic mix of building styles all reflect on the continuing development of the town throughout the ages.

Within 25 miles you can visit many attractions which include the famous caves at Wookey Hole, Cheddar Gorge & Caves, Glastonbury Abbey and Glastonbury Tor, Stourhead, Muchelney Abbey and the Fleet Air Arm Museum. The beautiful variety of landscapes ranging from coastal scenery, the Mendip Hills and Somerset Levels provide a wonderful playground for all sorts of activities including, caving, abseiling, horse riding, walking, cycling and nature watching.

"Great property, Great Facilites, Great Location, Great Time"

We had a fantastic stay over Easter at this property. The barn has all the mod cons you would wish for. There is a great view from the light and airy living room (photos on holiday lettings dont do it justice). The on site facilites (pool, spa, beauty treatments, tennis, etc) are of a very good standard - so much so, we didnt really go anywhere for the first few days. Wells & Glastonbury are within easy reach, and have a good selection of restaurants. Had two good days out at Longleat and Wookey Hole, both within easy driving. John was easy to deal with, and made every effort to ensure we had a great week. All in all just what we were after - highly recommended.
