Self contained 400 year old cottage in Mells, one of the most unspoiled villages in the west. Lovely stone architecture, historic buildings, blissful countryside and 3 min walk from our awarding-winning village pub The Talbot Arms. Close to Bath, Wells, Glastonbury, Lacock (Potter fans) Cheddar Gorge and Longleat. Easy drive to Cotswolds, the Dorset coast, Wales and Wye Valley.

The space
Newly restored cottage in Mells - one of the most unspoiled villages in England close to Bath, Stonehenge, Wells, Glastonbury, etc.

The cottage is newly restored and is attached to our main house but is completely independent with its own front door and garden gate. We live in the heart of Mells, one of the most unspoiled villages in England, but in a quiet lane with little traffic and few houses. Visitors often remark on the peace and quiet (and the lack of ambient light). The cottage has a huge bedroom with a very comfortable KING SIZE bed, a sofa and a widescreen TV, a sitting room/dining room with a library of books for guests' use, a well-equipped kitchen and a shower room . The cottage is designed for 2 . Ideal retreat in a comfortable, private space, in a great village, a few minutes walk from a one of the best gastro-pubs in England! Check out The Talbot Inn Mells for details.

NB Soho Houses members: Babington House is 5 minutes' drive from our cottage. If you're an Every House member you can rent our cottage and use Babington's facilities all day, for a fraction of the cost.

Intermittent bus service to Bath and small towns en route but really do need a car. Lots of safe parking here.

Other things to note
We are about 300 yards from one of the best gastro-pubs in the country, the award-winning, Talbot Inn. The food is great and not expensive. We are happy to book a table for you and advise on which of the dining rooms would suit you. NB we aren't on commission :) it's the only place in the village to eat and one of the best places for miles around. It also means no drink and drive issues. All our guests eat there and many re-book for 2nd and 3rd nights. Soho House members can use the facilities of Babington House 2 miles away.
