Wells House & Garden

Spend a day reconnecting with family & friends as you explore all that Wells House & Gardens has to offer!  Our 17th century Victorian Manor House and a history dating back to the days of Cromwell was remodelled by the renowned architect Daniel Robertson in the 1830s and he is also responsible for the parkland and garden landscape that are being lovingly restored by the current owners.
