The city of Wells is by no means sprawling (in fact it's the smallest in England), however what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in sheer enchantment with its cobbled streets and market village atmosphere. It also happens to boast one of the most marvellous Medieval cathedrals in the land, and it's one that has been attracting at first pilgrims then visitors by their droves since the 13th Century. Huddled in the heart of rural Somerset at the foot of the Mendhips, Wells is a merge of two attractive worlds, one of Gothic architecture, narrow streets, pavement cafes and independent shops, and the other of countryside quiet and nature-infused pursuits.
With its secluded setting and sweeping outlook over private farmland, this gorgeous glamping pod is a little slice of rural perfection, but what makes it completely unique is its staggering, uninterrupted view of Wells Cathedral. The ideal balance between countryside escapism and city break, Chapterhouse offers couples a truly idyllic place to unwind away from a busy schedule while being just a stroll from Wells city and all it has to offer. Designed with perfect proportions that feel more boutique retreat than rustic, the pod’s interior feels contemporary, spacious and airy, with creature comforts galore. There’s a dining area, living room, kitchen and bedroom all laid out as open plan and a separate bathroom which includes a large walk-in shower complete with rain head. French doors open the entire space outside to a timber deck where you’ll be able to unwind in complete solitude, barbecuing in the sunshine or indulgently soaking in the wood-fired hot tub which has been tucked away to the side of the lodge.
Guests with their four-legged companions in tow will be pleased to know Chapterhouse welcomes pets, so for peace of mind, the fence surrounding the property completely encloses the space. There are also many lovely walks in the area for both humans and canines to explore including a public bridle way that lies directly behind the field. Of course, Wells is a mere stroll away, so you’ll be able to enjoy a coffee or luncheon at The Bishop’s Table within minutes of leaving your front door.
*For a truly magical experience or to celebrate a special occasion, the owners offer balloon rides from the site. There is also a chauffeur service to and from Glastonbury Festival. Please enquire with the Luxury Coastal team at the time of booking
