The end house in a row, it has been completely renovated to a high standard and unusually for a city property has a lovely, peaceful, mature garden.
Apart from the magnificent cathedral (housing one of the earliest mechanical clocks in existence and Vicars Close-the oldest continuously inhabited medieval street in Europe). Wells is a beautiful market town offering a range of cafes/bars/pubs/restaurants and some lovely shops.
