About the neighbourhood
The historic City of Wells is just a short 45 minute drive from the beautiful City of Bath (UNESCO World Heritage City). Wells makes an ideal destination for a short break or long weekend and has much to see in it as well as providing an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.The 22 mile route heads over the Mendip Hills and opens up a gateway to the one of England's less explored gems - Somerset. Wells is a medieval city nestling on the southern side of the Mendip Hills with the mystic Somerset Levels stretching away to the south and west. Wells gets its name from these springs which can today be found in the gardens of the Bishop's Palace.The history of Wells goes right back to Roman times when we know that there was a settlement, probably because of the springs that bubble...
Getting around
There are a number of award winning pubs and restaurants within a few miles of Damson Cottage. Wells has a modern bus station and just 12 miles beyond is the mainline train station of Castle Cary.
