This is a delightful character two bedroom detached period cottage set on a quiet road on the outskirts of Wells but within easy walking distance of amenities. The cottage boasts flagstone floors, Aga, gas central heating as well as an open fire in the sitting room. There is a pretty courtyard with outbuildings currently set up as a spare room with outside shower and WC, and an additional secluded area of lawn. Original artwork hand painted on the walls adds a quirky touch to this unusual property.
