Walnut Cottage is a beautiful and unique house, dating back to 1734, close to the centre of Wells. It is 50 metres from the tree lined town green "The Buttlands" that offers free parking, and a short stroll to the wide range of local shops in "Staithe Street". It is a 5 minute walk from the quaint harbour and a 20 minute walk or 5 minute drive to the glorious sandy beach.
The primary bedroom has a King sized four poster bed and the bathroom has a central fabulous roll top bath and large walk in shower. The second bedroom, which is on the second floor, has two single beds. The cottage is in a very quiet location and has very comfortable beds with luxurious bed linen to help ensure a really tranquil sleep.
The cottage's exposed oak beams and wood burning stove show its heritage alongside the fast broadband, smart TVs and Netflix. The traditional cottage stairs are very safe but are Norfolk winders and may not be suitable for those with mobility issues. The totally private walled garden is well stocked and very pretty with nesting birds every year. It is a peaceful place to sit and relax.
Walnut Cottage has been an extremely popular holiday cottage for over 25 years with some guests returning more than 30 times. Those who came as children are now returning with their next generation.
The cottage is meticulously maintained. The reviews from guests are consistently excellent.
The cottage is a delightful Georgian double fronted house with an enclosed rear garden, which is very private. Rear access is gained from the adjacent Green Dragon Lane. The cottage was built in 1720 and renovations were completed in May 1998, to provide a very comfortable and attractive home.
The cottage comprises a fabulous sitting room, a really cosy and comfortable room with chairs and sofa, cast iron wood burning stove, super fast fibre broadband, Smart TV with Netflix and DVD player, music centre and iPod docking station. There's a good selection of DVDs, books, games and magazines. Logs and coal, available locally, are supplied for three days of fires.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, a traditional pine kitchen with pamment floor. It is well equipped with gas cooker, fridge, washing machine and microwave. There is also a large dining table with chairs and a wonderful old door with enormous key leading to a pretty and sheltered rear courtyard garden.
There is an enclosed and carpeted spiral staircase leading to the landing area (please note the stairs are steep), with chairs, original Georgian floorboards and built in pine wardrobe.
The large family bathroom is quite simply a stunning room with an amazing original mural, a free standing Victorian style roll top bath, a very spacious frameless walk in shower, WC with high level cistern and basin. The perfect bath to enjoy a bottle of champagne and candles.

On the second floor is a twin-bedded room with flat screen LCD TV. This room has a lovely view over gardens to the Buttlands, the village green, which in the 18th century housed the town bandstand. It's a very pleasant area surrounded by mature trees and this is the most suitable place to park being just moments from the rear of the house.
