Tucked away in Wookey Hole village, this cottage has an enclosed garden and is within easy reach of Wells, Cheddar, Glastonbury and Street.

This holiday cottage is situated at the top of a no-through lane in the village of Wookey Hole. It makes a great base for people wanting to visit Wookey Hole and its magnificent caves, but is also close to the city of Wells, with its cathedral and bishops’ palace. The area is ideal for walkers, bird watchers and nature lovers with the Mendip Area of Natural Beauty and RSPB Ham Wall Nature Reserve close by. The cottage has an enclosed south facing garden, and one medium-sized dog is welcome. A veranda with sliding glass doors leads out into the garden, and you can sit and enjoy breakfast or relax there in the evening with your favourite tipple after a day spent exploring this great part of the country. From the door you can walk up into the Mendips and down into Wells. Also worth a visit is Glastonbury with its tor and abbey, also Clarks Village, the designer outlet at Street and Cheddar with its caves and gorge. The Roman spa city of Bath, Bristol and Weston-super-Mare are about an hour away. Shop 2 miles, pub and restaurant 330 yards.

    A surprisingly very spacious and very homely little cottage. In a lovely location, great for walking in the mendips.

    Very well equipped cottage and very clean. Excellent location for touring the area. The local pub served very good reasonably priced food. Would stay again.

    Very helpful owners and caretakers (Caretakers helped us when we were snowed in on our last day). Impressed with all the kitchen stuff. We didn't need what we always bring to cottages as it had all the utensils we could have needed. We loved the log fire with unlimited fuel!! There is more room than the photos seem to show - i'd suggest adding more photos of downstairs. Parking was not too much of a problem as long as you know it's a couple of minutes walk away, though you can temporarily park outside to load/unload. Wells nearby had everything you want. A brilliant soft play for our 18m old! Called the Square.

    Wow! What a gem. It was Xmas 2018. We arrived to a delightful cottage decorated with lots of twinkly lights, 2 xmas trees (one in conservatory) & low back ground music. There was a M & S xmas cake & mince pies, quality street, a bottle of mulled wine & another of a pink bubbly. There was also a large bowl of fruit and the usual, tea, coffee & milk. Thank you! There was useful cooking oils and other condiments. The cottage was spotlessly clean, warm & cosy. There was several folders with loads of useful information including how to get the best from the log burner, where to find vets, supermarkets etc. Also holiday makers remarks on local tourist attractions, costs etc. This was truly a lovely comfortable, clean, well equiped cottage at a reasonable price at Christmas. If we do not return, it is because we like to go somewhere new each time. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    North bank cottage was like a home from home. Was well equipped, nice homley touches like fresh flowers, fruit and milk, quiet location but close to a nice pub/restaurant. Great wildlife garden which our dog loved, the conservatory was great and would happily stay again.

    The only negative is that car parking is a little bit difficult. No allocated space and the available shared parking isn't sufficient to meet demand.

    Clean well-equipped kitchen but only one tea towel an oversight perhaps, useful welcome pack, nice touches were the fruit and cake provided for our arrival. The cottage was a home from home and entirely suitable for exploring the local area and walks.

    North Bank is a lovely little cottage and a really restful location overall. The cottage has very good facilities for both human and K9 guests. In fact it has a few more since we stayed, as we forgot to pick up our kitchen utensils as we left. It was so very pleasant arriving to find music softly playing and the arrival gifts of fruit, cake and sweets. The only two negatives are: Parking: The road is very narrow and you cannot park outside the cottage. However once you understand the etiquette for the street we had no problems finding a space within 100m. Pond: Whilst the garden is a beautiful little cottage garden style area the small pond at the bottom of the garden is a magnet for any dog and is filthy dirty. The ground of the path in front of it is quite soft and unstable so a bit of a hazard. Not sure what benefit it is but I wouldn’t let children or animals near it.

    Cottage was lovely, found a lovely welcome package on arrival. The cottage was very comfortable and situated very well in somerset-bath, whilst a bit of a drive, is definitely worth going to. The only downside was parking, we have quite a large car and often had to park at the bottom of the hill (only a 2 minute walk away). Not something to put you off going, but to be aware of if you're expecting guaranteed parking near to the cottage. All in all a fantastic cottage and will be making a return visit should be we visiting Somerset again.
