Quality self catering accommodation in the historic cathedral city of Wells

“Cathedral View” is a luxurious mews-style town house situated in a conservation area in a very quiet location in the centre of the historic cathedral city of Wells with off-street parking (something of a rarity in Wells). It is equipped to the highest specifications and has views to the famous 12th century Gothic cathedral and across the Vale of Avalon to Glastonbury Tor beyond. There is a good selection of inns, restaurants and shops within a five minute walk.

Situated in the heart of Somerset, Wells is the smallest cathedral city in England. It caters for most everyday needs, offering good shopping facilities as well as restaurants and pubs, a cinema, churches of most denominations, together with open-air markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.

Wells is a popular film location. Recent productions filmed here are Hot Fuzz (starring Simon Pegg) and The Golden Age (starring Cate Blanchett). One of our guests remarked after watching the DVD of Hot Fuzz when staying at the house, "it gives a whole new meaning to the phrase "holiday footage!"


Wells is an ideal base for touring the West Country, with Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Glastonbury, Regency Bath, Bristol and the seaside resort of Weston-Super-Mare all in close proximity. For those who like to get some exercise there is excellent walking in the nearby Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (the West Mendip Way starts just half a mile from St Thomas Mews) with cycling and bird watching on the Somerset Levels. Sporting facilities in the area include racing at Wincanton and Bath, golf at Wells and near Oakhill, sailing or fishing at Chew Valley and Blagdon lakes. In addition, there is a Leisure Centre in Wells offering a variety of recreational facilities.
