The Cider Press is tucked away in rolling Somerset countryside in the exclusive Wellesley Park, a 17.5 acre estate with grounds to explore and spa facilities to indulge in. Despite being in glorious rural surroundings, The Cider Press is just a short distance from the historic city of Wells, with its magnificent Cathedral, the Bishop's Palace and the Cathedral green which is surrounded by medieval buildings.

Spacious and modern, the open plan living space is a great area for socialising and when the sun is out, throw open the French doors that lead out to your private enclosed patio area. Cooking up holiday meals will be a treat in the excellently equipped kitchen.

Upstairs there are three double bedrooms and the main bedroom boasts floor to ceiling windows that really make the most of the view to Wells Cathedral. High quality linens and super-comfy beds assure you of a restful sleep, ready for new holiday adventures each day.

The luxurious shared spa facilities at Wellesley Park are immaculately maintained and there for your enjoyment. Take a morning swim in the indoor heated pool and then chill out in the sauna or steam room - bliss! If you are feeling a bit more energetic then try out the gym, or perhaps a family tennis tournament?

There is so much to see close by, whatever your interests may be. The Cider Press is situated at the bottom of the Mendip Hills where there are an abundance of footpaths and cycling routes. As well as the famous Cheddar Gorge and Wookey Hole caves, there is a stunning vantage point at the top of the hill above the lesser known Ebbor Gorge where you can quite literally see the whole of Somerset!

Glastonbury is a short drive away and is steeped in history and myth - climb up the Tor or walk through the abbey to get a real feel for this quirky place. A bit further afield you have Bruton with the famous international Hauser & Wirth Art Gallery, Frome with its monthly artisan market which people travel to from far and wide, and for a bit of pampering, visit the Kilver Designer Outlet in Shepton Mallet or the Clarks Shopping Village at Street. A day trip to Bath should be on your to do list - excellent retail therapy and historic Roman baths to explore.
