The West Country region

Patron, the Bishop of Bath and Wells. The church was built in 1847. There is a chapel for Bible Christians.
The historic City of Wells is just a short 45 minute drive from the beautiful City of Bath (UNESCO World Heritage City). Wells makes an ideal destination for a short break or long weekend and has much to see in it as well as providing an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.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 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. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.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 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.
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. 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.

"Holidaying in Henton"
We needed a self catering hideaway for a week to allow some exploration of the Mendips and Wells - also we wanted to visit two National Trust properties at Barrington and Tyntesfield. Ford Farm Cottage provided an excellent base to do these visits and also a relaxing and very well appointed comfortable spot to relax.

"Idyllic cottage - fabulous owners!"
We have stayed at Form Farm Cottage twice - both tomes for two weeks at a time. Gary and Tina were so friendly and genuinely wanted our stay to be perfect, which it was until Andy was ill. Gary and Tina looks after us both so well and their cottage was so idyllic that we returned the following year. the cottage was an ideal retreat but was close to lots of places of interest and a host of restaurants and pubs for good food. The only thing that could have made the cottage better would be somewhere to hang coats when coming in and perhaps a tumble drier to complement the washing machine. Fabulous holidays each time!

Stayed 3 days at the cottage at Ford Farm. It is a lovely place, decorated and equiped to a very high standard. Tina the owner is friendly and helpful. She gave us lots of information about places to go and to eat. The location is ideal for exploring the area and we visited Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar, Salisbury and Wedmore. Great little break! Would be great in any season.
