Loved our stay at the Coxley House. Julia was a gracious attentive host. Lovely king room with a usa sized king bed. Soaking tub and convenient shower. All first class amenities and personal touches. Breakfast was amazing, best coffee in our English countryside travels. Lovely grounds, peaceful relaxation. Restaurants convenient driven to Wells.

Delightful couple who were extremely welcoming & helpful- made us sad the stop was so short. Strongly recommend Julia drove us into town via scenic route. Ample breakfast & chat. A little tricky to find but go to end of Stoppers Lane iron gate then the house & yard appear. Very quiet & peaceful.

Julia was a very welcoming hostess, serving us tea and cake on arrival and even offering to drop us into town for dinner. Beautiful setting in extensive well maintained gardens. Rooms overlook the garden. A real country garden experience. Breakfast was beautifully presented and the large choice of homemade jams and preserves were a highlight.

This is a fantastic place to stay in, very warm and welcoming. Julia and Mark are great hosts, if you want a quiet location that's within easy reach of Wells, Glastonbury and beyond this is it. The breakfast is great and Julia does a fantastic vegetarian option, cannot fault it. Well worth a visit and will definitely be back

We stayed here for 3 nights in the Blue Room and have nothing but praise for the care and attention to detail that we received.

Julia Riley is simply a charming woman and runs a superb B&B. The setting, the comfort and the welcome are all just perfect. A great place to really relax. Very well placed for local sights and only a short ride to Wells City centre.
