Dreaming of a holiday in the beautiful West Country? It’s hard to beat wonderful Wells! The historic cathedral city sits right in the heart of Somerset and on the southern edge of the majestic Mendip Hills Area of Outstanding of Natural Beauty. No matter if you want to make some memories as a family or enjoy a little alone time as a couple, you’ll have countless activities and attractions to add to your itinerary.
You can’t skip popping into Wells Cathedral. The impressive Gothic structure dates back to the 13th century and is particularly well-known for its clock that’s over 600 years old! The Bishop’s Palace next door is also worth touring, especially its breathtaking gardens which often host workshops and other family-friendly events. Certified film fanatic? You might just recognise Wells’ city centre from the comedy movie ‘Hot Fuzz’. Its pretty streets are brimming with welcoming places to wine and dine, plus you’ll find a brilliant selection of independent and high street stores if you’re craving some retail therapy. Alternatively, why not snap up some great deals at the Clarks Village outlet just 15 minutes away in Street?
If you’d rather get outdoors and enjoy some of the region’s natural allures, Wells holidays give you easy access to Wookey Hole. The spooky caves are thousands of years old and, according to local legend, were once the home of a local witch. Craggy Cheddar Gorge is a few miles further north and ideal for an epic hike. Wells couldn’t be better located for day trips to other West Country gems, too. Bath is unmissable if you love grand Georgian buildings, while gorgeous Glastonbury has heaps of spiritual landmarks like the breathtaking Glastonbury Tor. Fancy extending your trip further? Consider stopping off in Wells for a few nights en route to Devon, Dorset or Cornwall.
