The house is about a 1-2 miles way off the cathedral easy to find. The rooms are very comfortable and it´s enough space for a short stay anyway. Breakfast with fresh...

Wells is a beautiful city and Ashford House is the perfect place to stay. We received a very warm welcome from Jayne and good pointers as to what Wells had to offer. Our room was spacious, spotlessly clean and offered every comfort.

My mother and I stayed at Ashford House for three nights in May 2011, using Wells as a base for exploring Somerset and Avon. We could not have stayed at a nicer place.

We can definitely recommend Ashford House. The Family room is large and well laid out, even with a 4th bed in it. We all slept very well in the comfortable beds. Decor throughout is excellent and everything is spotlessly clean. Breakfasts are substantial and right on the mark, cooked fresh to your requirements, with plenty of toast, tea etc. There...
