Swan Hotel, Wells

The Hotel

Key Details

The historic City of Wells is on the edge of the southern slopes of the Mendip Hills. It is England's smallest City and as such

has the atmosphere of a small market town, with its market square and cobbled streets and is set within the lovely

Somerset countryside. The world famous Cathedral which is probably the most beautiful Cathedral in England has a large

green at the front and is surrounded by plenty of quaint historic buildings with many quiet side streets leading off from it

including Vicar's Close. Bishop's Palace, a very tranquil spot, is not far away and all this is close to the amenities. This

provides for an abundance of beautiful painting locations. Not far away is Kilver Court Gardens, the pretty villages of

Nunney and Priddy which are in the heart of the Mendip Hills.
