The Somerset region
HENTON, a hamlet in Wookey parish, and a chapelry partly also in Meare parish, Somerset. The hamlet lies near the Mendip hills, 4 miles W of Wells r. station. The chapelry was constituted in 1848. Post town, Wookey, under Wells, Somerset. Pop., 548. Houses, 128. Pop. of the Wookey portion, 501. Houses, 118. The living is a vicarage in the diocese of Bath and Wells. Value, £100. 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.

"Great place to stay to explore Somerset"
We arrived after a terrible journey to be greeted by Tina. She showed us around the Cottage, described the surrounding area (highlighting the best places to visit), and then left us with a cream tea she had prepared for us. This was just about the only intervention other than the odd chat in passing, we always felt that she was there to help if needed. Given the nature of the cottage ie thick walls and remote location, there is no way that you will be booking tickets online the night before your visit to any of the many attractions. Our phones are with Vodafone and Orange and are capable of 4G but with no wifi, broadband or network coverage they were rendered useless. No bad thing if you are looking for time away from the rat race, as we were. Even the tv struggled to provide stations other than BBC. The cottage is very well quipped with a Bose CD/Radio, good dvd player, etc. we even found scissors when required. The cottage was spotless and very comfortable. The beds structure was solid, the mattress amazingly comfy with no "role together" whatsoever. The furniture was in keeping with the theme and it all worked as it should with plenty of storage for our clothes for a weeks stay. The bathroom was in great condition and, again, immaculately clean. Our only reservation is the lack of a shower. Don't get me wrong the role top bath was big and there was plenty of steaming hot water BUT we did miss the ability to just jump in the shower and get on with the day. It did mean a more leisurely start to the day though... just make sure you do not get the plug end. We tended to eat out a lot but did cook the occasional meal. When we did the kitchen was superb and everything worked as it should. The whole feel of the cottage is welcoming and a credit to its owners, it is not "tired" as so many holiday lets can be and it does not feel like the dumping ground for an owners cast-offs (as some holiday lets often feel). As frequent visitors to Somerset, our itinerary was slightly different to the usual Cheddar Gorge, Wells, Longleat etc, preferring to travel further afield to places such as Monkey World in Wareham (awesome), Stonehenge (dull), Bristol Science Museum (great fun even for 50 somethings!!)... The cottage was central to all of the above but secluded enough to be quiet and peaceful. Would we recommend the cottage? In the blink of an eye. A fantastic place with fantastic owners... we will return. A massive thank you to Tina and Gary

A lovely place to stay and an ideal location for exploring this part of Somerset. Very welcoming hosts and well appointed, clean and tidy cottage. Just everything you want for a peaceful break in the country.

"Delightful Cottage, home away from home"
Had a wonderful 2 week stay in this delightful cottage, very comfortable and had everything you need. Tastefully decorated and loved the bathroom. Good location and welcoming hosts, loved the home made "Cream Tea" on arrival.

The cottage is a five minute drive from the cathedral city of Wells. Steeped in history ,you can spend hours wandering the ancient streets, there is plenty to see and do . The park and ride is a must. to enjoy a day in Bath, .We have rented this cottage for the third year and highly recommend it.

"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.
