On the third floor you will find a TV room. A convivial kitchen/dining space on the ground floor provides the opportunity to enjoy good food and conversation.

This holiday at a glance
One well-behaved dog welcome (small additional charge).
St Michael’s Cottage is one of Wells’ oldest buildings and as such, there are uneven floor levels and steps both within and outside the property. The staircases inside the property are Norfolk winder stairs which means, as with older character cottages, they are enclosed, steep, curved and narrow. We would advise that the house would not be suitable for the less agile. But it is a very enchanting cottage and those who stay will adore the unique character that it comes with.
Really steep stairs- despite of that, lovely!
Cottage was much smaller than we thought after looking at the photographs. Parking a nightmare and wifi not good. would have thought we would have been given more logs considering the price we paid too! However, a good weekend to explore surrounding area and close to the town. Towels in bathroom could have been bigger. Gosh no more moaning, but lovely cottage.
