Velux with blind. This property was once the stable. It is at the end of the main house (dating back to Tudor times) which is occupied by the owners.

It is on the edge of the village, less than a mile from the main road, a very rural setting. Coxley is in the centre of Somerset, 20 - 25 miles from Bristol, Bath, Frome, Yeovil, Taunton and Weston-super-Mare, all of which are major tourist or cultural attractions. Being close to the Mendip Hills it is an excellent centre for walking, riding, cycling, golf.

Nearby are: Wells (3 miles) - the smallest cathedral city in the country. The Cathedral is considered by many to be the most beautiful of all England?s cathedrals. For a truly unforgettable experience, go to weekday Evensong and hear one of the best choirs in the world in a tradition which is older than the Cathedral itself.

Everyone is welcome - you don't have to be a Christian. Ask us for details. The Bishop's Palace - fabulous mediaeval buildings and beautiful gardens containing the springs, or 'wells', after which the city is named, and which feed the moat surrounding the Palace, where the famous swans are, which ring a bell when they want to be fed.

Vicars Close - the oldest (c700 years) continuously-occupied street in Europe. Built to house the men of the Cathedral Choir who still live there today. Market on Wednesdays and Saturdays throughout the year ? a huge range of locally produced artisan and 'ordinary' foods, as well as books, antiques, clothes etc.

Glastonbury (4 miles) - famous for: the Tor (perfect view of it from here); the Abbey, a ruin since the time of Henry VIII; and the Festival (most years in June). This is a perfect place to stay for that if you don?t fancy camping and mud! Street (6 miles) - where the famous Clarks Village is located with factory outlets of over 90 stores at discount prices. Also nearby: Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Longleat Safari Park, National Trust properties - Stourhead, Montacute, Dyrham Park, Lytes Cary, Tyntesfield.

Very convenient for Millfield and Wells Cathedral Schools. NB: We are next to a working dairy farm, so some noise from machinery etc must be expected.
