The fabulous kitchen island is a focal point in this sociable space.
The dining-table is set to one side of the room which has plenty of light and space.

Everything here is to a very high standard - as well as being a great fun place to stay with family or friends.
This is the master bedroom on the second floor. High ceilings and floor to ceiling windows add to the space in this gorgeous room.

Wellesley Park has been beautifully planned and designed so that everyone living or staying here has a feeling of calm and tranquillity.
Upstairs in the spa is a calm library where you can simply relax - the view is right across the valley to Wells Cathedral.
Outside the spa is this wonderful tennis court so do come prepared with tennis shoes and rackets.
There is a dedicated field for you to excercise your dog. At the time this photo was taken there were sheep keeping the meadow grazed but these are only here for a very short time.
You also have access to the area around the lake and from this field, a footpath takes you up into the hills beyond Wellesley Park.
Hayloft is a striking top quality property on the edge of Wellesley Park, with a very high degree of privacy. The spa is just a two minute stroll away on the other side of the site.
Last but not least - visitors at Christmas time will be treated to a wonderful tree and decorations to make this a great choice for a celebration.

Must see - Vicar's Close, Wells, Somerset.

Wells itself is absolutely steeped in history with the Bishop's Palace and the magnificent cathedral (for instance) both virtually next door to eachother. In and around there are many historically important landmarks too - but the 'hidden gem' is Vicar's Close, just to the side of the cathedral..... it is the oldest continuously inhabited residential street in Europe, dating back to 1363!! Astonishing to think these houses have been there (and lived in) for 650 years... and a truly beautiful sight too. Absolutely worth the small walk around from the 'main' places of interest.

Also nearby

Glastonbury Tor (4 ¼ miles)

Why not take a walk up this iconic, legendary Tor? Well worth the effort, you will have spectacular views across 3 counties. Dogs must be on a lead and there are no public conveniences.

Breathtaking (!)

It's well worth the initially steep climb up the tor for the amazing panoramic views from the summit - we parked in Glastonbury itself, walked up through the town and past the Chalice Well to tackle the steepest slope first, which meant an easier walk down the 'back' of the tor and a stroll through countryside to get back to the top of the town. Plenty of tea shops and cafes to refuel at when you get back!

The Bishop's Palace and Gardens (1 ¼ miles)

A fantastic 13th Century building with 14 acres of exquisite, tranquil gardens.

Glastonbury Abbey (4 ¾ miles)

A great day out for all the family with romantic ruins to explore, thirty six acres of parkland, an outdoor cafe, excellent gift shop and modern visitor centre. Costumed guides tell historic tales and you can even visit the legendary burial place of King Arthur. Check their Web site for opening times and further details.

Fenny Castle House Tea Rooms (3 miles)

You can enjoy breakfast, morning coffee, lunch of afternoon tea here. With lovely views, you can often spot local wildlife whilst sitting in the pretty gardens.
