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 minutes walk from our awarding-winning village pub The Talbot Arms. Close to glorious Bath, Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge and Longleat. The Cotswolds are less than an hour away as is the Dorset coast, S. Wales and the glorious Wye Valley. For Harry Potter fans Lacock, which was used for Hogwarts, is just a short drive away.

We were delighted with our stay in such a unique setting. Rob and Maggie were there to greet us and make us comfortable. Mells is an amazing village with such a history, and the Talbot Inn, a short stroll away, is fantastic.

Comfortable, very quiet and well situated for sight seeing. Rob and Maggie are friendly and knowledgeable hosts. The shelves in the front room are full of books clearly collected over many years; we could have spent days just sitting and dipping in and out of them. Also highly r…

Lovely little cottage, kitchen has everything you need, lots of books to borrow, comfy bed. A very quiet village, no ambient noise at all. Lots to see and do in the local towns and cities. Would recommend as a quiet getaway.

Rob & Maggie's cottage is stunning on the outside and fully equipped and functioning on the inside. It's a really generous space for a couple. Centrally located in the achingly scenic village of Mells. Reserve without risk !

Getting around

Lots of walks around Mells, an intermittent bus service and taxis are available to come and go from the local railway station 3 miles away but a car is essential to get the most out of the area.
