Wells is 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).
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.
The property is available end of April/beginning of May and would make a fantastic family home.
