New Wells is an open plan architect designed modern house which we built in part of our garden at Old Wells. It is private, warm and lovely. The sitting/dining room gives onto the sun room which is a real sun trap and lovely to sit in summer and winter alike. There is one TV in the sitting room and a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is central heating and a super wood burning stove for those winter days after a long walk. There is no direct access to WiFi but guests are welcome to use our connection at the main house - Old Wells - which takes a 50 yards walk through the garden
Guests are welcome to use the sitting room, sun room and kitchen where there are tea and coffee making facilities. The gardens at our 2 houses interconnect and guests are welcome to find a quiet corner in either garden. We will happily allow access to our WIFi at Old Wells.

I am an active horsewoman and a passionate gardener. I recently retired from professional life as a lawyer and am enjoying opening up our home to guests from all parts of the world.
My husband, Jim, is American and a keen cyclist, cook and dog walker and always loves to give advice on where is best to see!
This is our family home and has been for the last 20 years.
We like to make people feel very much at home and comfortable. The house is open all year with lovely warm log fires in the winter and a gorgeous traditional English garden for use in the summer.
