Set in a stunning location on Wells Cathedral Green, facing the West Front, the Ancient Gatehouse is well-positioned for discovering Somerset’s historic beauty spots, just Yards away from the ancient market place.
Wells is one of Somerset’s quintessentially English cities and has been loved by visitors from across the globe.
The centre is compact, with cobbled streets, medieval architecture and a market square, yet it is actually a city – the smallest in England to be precise.
The Ancient Gatehouse looks across to Wells Cathedral, a venue that draws thousands of visitors each year.
Located at the medieval heart of England’s smallest city, you will be rewarded with fantastic views at every turn.
Just a stone throw away is Vicars’ Close which was built over 650 years ago to house the Vicars Choral and it has since been continuously inhabited by their successors. This is just another small example of the heritage that sits mere yards away from The Ancient Gatehouse.
