Secluded holiday cottage in the centre of Wells!

Rustic self catering with Wells cathedral next doorThe Piggeries holiday cottage is uniquely situated in the heart of the city of Wells in Somerset, right next door to the famous cathedral.  Part of an early medieval house, it was eventually used for keeping pigs, and has now been converted into rustic holiday accommodation of great character. Something qPeaceful rustic holiday in Wellsuite different! 

Step back in time.  The cottage is quiet, secluded, quirky, and in a unique situation.  Relax on the patio and hear the choir and the organ in the Cathedral next door.  In the garden are free range chickens.  And there is a superb view in one direction of the East End of Wells Cathedral, literally a few feet away, and in the other direction of Tor Woods (National Trust). 


And above all it is so quiet, in the middle of England’s smallest city.

So conveniently located:
  • One minute’s walk (50 m) from the Cathedral, one of the most beautiful in England.  Evensong, of broadcast quality, is at 5.15pm every weekday evening, and there are three sung services on Sundays.
  • One minute’s walk from the 14th Century street, Vicars’ Close, the oldest surviving medieval street in Europe.
  • Five minutes’ walk from the moated Bishop’s Palace and the market square (markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays), from the celebrated Swan Hotel, and two superb restaurants, “The Old Spot”, and “Goodfellows” fish restaurant.
  • Many lovely country walks, without the need to use a car.  There is also a good bus service to many destinations in the area.  Or you can hire bicycles!
  • An excellent centre for touring the Mendips (Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole Caves), the Quantocks, the Levels, a number of National Trust houses, and other hidden parts of Somerset.
  • Less than an hour from Bath, Bristol or Taunton, and – for those who can’t resist – the Clark’s Village outlet centre, at Street!
