Have to agree with LouG734's comments. The moment we walked in the front door, it hit you, the strong cigarette odour followed us up the stairs to our room. We stayed in the Primrose room which would have been nice back in the 70's, clean but more shabby chic than stylish. The bed was a double (how do two people...

Short notice move out of our house whilst the loft conversion was started and we could not have done better! Very helpful and friendly, comfortable room and the best breakfast for some time. Ten minutes to walk in to the city and still very quiet with ample parking. What more can you ask for? Free wi-if as well was a...

The house itself has ample off-street parking places within it's grounds and is within easy walking distance of the city of Wells. The breakfast menu is extensive and includes a selection...

This was our second stay and another warm and friendly welcome! Great breakfast lovely people and good rooms. Lots of local knowledge and advice couldn't ask for an easier going atmosphere. Within easy reach of attractions without being too close to the centre of Wells an easy walk though! Will be back again no doubt!! Thanks!

We stayed for two nights in july on our roundtrip through South-England. Looking back this was one of the best accommodations we had. Nicely decorated room with the look over the garden. We were warmly welcomed, the breakfast was really great. It looked like a photo in a magazine with the fresh fruitsalad topped with strawberries. The city of Wells...

Had a lovely stay at the highfield b&b, we stayed for 3 nights. Steve and Stephanie we're very nice and we felt welcome. The rooms (rose for our friends and we stayed in the yellow room) were big enough for us and the bathroom (en suite) was small but good enough for us. Both couples loved the typical decorations of...

We stayed the night after walking from Cheddar. Really good accommodation, very friendly hosts. We spent a very comfortable few hours in our respective rooms before walking into the City for beer and food. Good value for money. Only ten minute walk to centre of the city. Heartily recommend it.

A very nice B&B. Friendly hosts, excellent breakfast and a very comfortable bed. We only stayed a night while walking The Mendip Way but would have liked to stay longer and enjoy the balcony overlooking a lovely garden. I would certainly recommend it.
