Introducing our newly refurbished self-catering cottages

The latter end of 2023 has seen the first stage in the renovation of the self catering cottages on the Wells estate. The first phase of this project began in the first courtyard of the old stable block in Wells House and while the exterior remains unchanged to the design of Daniel Robertson the new cottages offer a charming blend of classic elegance and modern comfort.

“Customer Review – Wayne, Summer 2021”

“What a unique & wonderful experience. The accommodation is rustic, charming, comfortable and inviting. It really is a great space to spend time with friends and talk all night. The grounds of the house are stunning, with great walks for families and couples. The mini animal farm is a fantastic bonus. The host was fantastic to deal with and very accommodating with every request. An absolute gem we can not wait to go back. Perfect as a family break, a group of a romantic retreat”
