Wookey Hole village, famous for its caves, is charming village surrounded by fields and hills, with many opportunities for walking and cycling. There is a church, a well regarded pub, a community hall with regular cinema nights. There’s even a Land Rover wood-fired Pizza take away in the village.
Wookey Hole is a short drive from Wells, the smallest Cathedral city in England, and offers all the usual amenities that you would expect in a small town including banks, doctors surgeries, dentists and a selection of primary schools and the excellent Blue School and Wells Cathedral school. The high street is vibrant with a small selection of the usual chain stores plus a variety of independent shops and restaurants and pubs as well as a twice weekly market and a choice of supermarkets including Waitrose. At the very heart of the city is the medieval Cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and Vicars’ Close (reputed to be the oldest surviving residential street in Europe).
The Wells festivals are increasing in popularity each year with the Literary Festival now taking place over two weeks and attracting big names in the literary world, the very well attended Food Festival and many regular Arts festivals. With both the Cathedral School and the Cathedral itself there are endless opportunities for musical concerts, plus there are regular shows and comedy nights in the Little Theatre. Both Bath (21 miles) and Bristol (22 miles) are within commuting distance and there is a main line railway station with links to London in Castle Cary 13 miles away. Street and Glastonbury are 20 minutes away and Bristol airport is an easy 30-minute drive.
There are excellent state and Independent schools in the area including highly regarded primary schools in Wells, Wells Cathedral Prep, Millfield Prep and senior schools, the popular Wells Blue Secondary School, Wells Cathedral School, Downside School and All Hallows Preparatory School.
