Pricing From: £405.00 - 780.00

This grade 2 listed property has been completely renovated in the summer of 2007 to provide very high quality accommodation for up to six people, although access to the 2nd floor twin bedded room is by a narrow 'unique' staircase which is unsuitable for very young children and the elderly. It is however a guaranteed hit with teenagers especially because it has its own TV and is very private. No one can believe what awaits them given the cement rendered frontage to the property but once inside is a spacious light interior which has been designed to ensure total comfort for our guests.

The beamed lounge features a large fireplace with woodburner for cold winter nights and the property also has full gas central heating. There are 2 large comfy sofas & the property now has freesat TV so you can relax in front of the fire after a day out & about in Wells or on the beach. The well equipped kitchen has handcrafted units and includes a fitted cooker, fridge and microwave and the large kitchen table comfortably sits 6 people.

The separate utility room contains the washing machine,dryer & freezer and is a useful storage area for outside furniture & BBQ. The kitchen looks out onto a fully enclosed, private garden which gets the midday & evening sun and comprises both a patio area & flower garden,complete with garden furniture and barbeque. The bathroom contains both a bath for lazy relaxation & a large walk in shower & the bathroom design seems to have been copied by many of our guests - especially the beach feature! There is a large front bedroom with kingsize bed and a second double bedroom to the rear which looks out on the garden & beyond to another large expanse of lawned garden & flower beds which is shared with neighbouring Bluebell Cottage.

Rest assured however that you are not overlooked. Upstairs to the twin bedded room is an indescribable adventure for adults & children alike and while the stairs are rather narrow they are behind a door off the upstairs landing and safe from inquisitive young children - and grandparents! The house is situated away from the hustle of the quay but within 5 minutes easy walk of shops, pubs and restaurants. We have two more properties in Wells-Next-The-Sea.

To view these please click on the links below .Cobblers Cottage which sleeps 4 is only 100 yards away and Bluebell Cottage is next door but one & can be accessed from the rear of Lilac Cottage. Please note that we welcome pets but operate a strict no smoking policy inside all our properties & expect our guests to respect this.
