“Excellent accommodation”

Reviewed 23 Nov 2015

From the moment we booked the cottage the service from Chris and Viv was excellent. We received emails with details on how to get there and things to do in the area. They also ensured not only were we well catered for but also our young children checking what we required in advance of our visit - this was a welcome change! The kids loved the toys you had left for them to play with!! The cottage has everything you could possibly need, everything is thought of. We were only staying a couple of days and wished it had been longer, when we return to the area we will check to see if this accommodation is available as we have stayed in the area many times and this is by far the best place we have stayed. It really was a home from home!

“Perfect home from home in lovely setting , ideally located to Wells.”

Reviewed 14 Sep 2015

We received an excellent service from Chris and Viv,, gave out lots of info and quick with responses. The property was well equipped in all respects, tastefully fitted out, and comfortable and homely. The house is in a stunning estate of homes which has been sympathetically converted. It's very quiet and in country setting, but still convenient for a pleasant walk into Wells. Enjoyed the home comforts, Wells is a lovely city to stay in / around and explore.

“First class cottage in an excellent location”

Reviewed 6 Sep 2015

We stayed two weeks in this 'home from home' while we were visiting our son, who stays in the same area, and awaiting the birth of our grand daughter. The friendliness and information shared by Chris & Viv before our arrival was greatly appreciated and the welcome pack which awaited us was a very nice touch. This cottage has a very well equipped kitchen and the bed is very comfortable with plenty of drawer and wardrobe space for those like us who hate living out of a suitcase. Although we were unfortunate with the weather the garden is quite lovely and has ample space for enjoying sitting out. Wells itself is a beautiful city and has lots of interesting places to visit. Although most of our time was spent with our grandchildren we enjoyed a visit to Cheddar Gorge, Bath, Bristol (excellent shopping centre) and had a couple of enjoyable meals at the Crown beside the market as they start serving before 6pm. We will certainly use this cottage again and would have no hesitation recommending it to our friends.

“Fantastic cottage in a stunning location”

Reviewed 21 Aug 2015

Myself,my husband and our 7 year old daughter stayed here for three nights,wish it had been longer. The cottage has everything you could need and little touches like fresh flowers and a welcome basket make all the difference. The location is ideal for exploring Wookey Hole,Chedder Gorge,Wells,Glastonbury and many more tourist attractions. There are plenty of cafes and restaurants nearby to suit all budgets,we would highly recommend The Fountain Inn. Chris and Viv really go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need,from directions to what there is to do in the area, all of this was very helpful and made our little holiday a very happy one. We would deffinately recommend staying here.

“fantastisch verblijf”

Reviewed 24 Jul 2015

Fantastisch verblijf. Heel mooi huis, ruim en heel rustig gelegen. Toffe tuin met mooie planten en bloemen. Kasten waren gevuld met te gebruiken produkten. Ook veel kinderspeelgoed en dvd's aanwezig. In de omgeving heel veel te doen:wells, bath, cheddar, longlead,... heel tof verblijf.

“Caring beyond the call of duty:excellent value and location”

Reviewed 14 May 2015

The property is delightful and an easy walk into Wells. The owners are caring and thoughtful and cater for all your needs. I have never known such attention to detail. Would highly recommend x

“Lovely, comfortable, very well equipped cottage”

Reviewed 19 Mar 2015

Very welcoming, clean and cosy, with all conveniences, very well equipped. Nice quiet area and location and being very close to Wells. Owners extremely helpful. All in all lovely presented cottage, and I would definitely stay there again.

“Home from home - everything we needed and a perfect setting.”

Reviewed 3 Oct 2014

The Cottage was exceptionally well kitted out and had everything we needed. It was clean, tidy and we had a lovely welcome pack of bread, milk, juice, biscuits, tea etc - perfect after a long drive before we went shopping! The walk into Wells is lovely - 30 - 40 minutes max and all off road with excellent views of the often unseen side of the Cathedral as you get closer to town. The information, directions and communication we had with the owner before the visit was very helpful and it was made clear that if there were any problems we could contact him during the stay. We can't recommend the property highly enough.

“Lovely and central apartment”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2014

We found the apartment lovely and central. Very clean and well presented. We really appreciated the welcome pack. We loved the setting of the apartment in the old hospital. We used the local BP supermarket for essentials. We recommend the Italian restaurant at the end of the High Street and unfortunately we found this too late. We visited Wells (bigger than we thought), Bristol harbour front (good shops and the Wallace & Gromit exhibition at the M Shed), Wookey Hole (if you have a young family), Cheddar Gorge is a must and Fleet Air Arm Museum (the Aircraft Carrier is a must). There was so much more to do but we ran out of days. We will be returning to catch the balloons at the festival as they didnt fly the day we got to them.

“a very welcoming and comfortable cottage”

Reviewed 10 Aug 2014

Chris and Viv were extremely helpful with directions and forward planning for our stay. The cottage is very well located for exploring Wells and the Mendips. Wells cathedral is very beautiful and well worth visiting. The cottage itself is very comfortable and well fitted out. There was a very generous welcome pack containing milk, bread, juice, cereals, etc...
