Visit Wells England
But, after spending the day here, we fell in love with this cathedral slash market town. While many visit here to see England’s first completely Gothic church, which dates back to 1200, there is much more to the town.
From the peaceful lane, just north of the cathedral, called Vicars’ Close. This perfectly preserved lane is lined with 14th-century houses. To the stately Bishop’s Palace is circled by a peaceful moat.
This is not all that the town has to offer when you visit Wells England though. Wells is a pleasant market town that has a lot of character and we absolutely love strolling the streets, shopping, and just enjoying the ambiance.
So, do as we did, and take the short drive out of Bath, about 22 miles away, 45 minutes or so. Enjoy the verdant countryside of the Mendip Hills and experience the gateway to Somerset, one of England’s infrequently explored gems.

Located right in the heart of things, just steps from the cathedral, Bishop’s Palace and more. It faces right onto the market square which can be a little noisy especially Wednesday and Saturday mornings, which are market days. Rooms are comfortable.
Located about .5 mile from downtown. The setting of Stoberry House park like as it is on a hill with beautiful view of Wells cathedral. Delicious breakfasts are served in the orangery. Great food and great setting, with helpful staff. What more can you ask for?
