    • “Gleaming clean accommodation - lovely people, plenty of parking with good location. Outstanding compared with other holiday lets stayed in previously, cannot reccomend highly enough. Will book again next year!”

    Linda L, Ffynnongroyw, October 2018

    • “Another lovely cottage, in a friendly village. Excellent pubs in walking distance serving great food. This is the third Sykes cottage we have stayed in and they never disappoint. Warm, comfortable, clean and everything you could possibly want to make your stay special. Will definitely stay again and highly recommend.”

    Mrs Kirby, SANDHURST, December 2018

    • “Glebe House had so much more on the inside compared to its initial kerbside look. We were there in November and it was very warm and comfortable with lots of books and games for dark evenings if you weren't snuggled up by the log burner watching TV or eating around the large table in the generously equipt kitchen. The beds were very good and the showers excellent.. The position, in a lovely village, but close to Wells and Tesco, is perfect.”

    Mrs Pullen, Ilfracombe, November 2018

    • “The accommodation was a very high standard The position was great for visiting Wells and many other places in Somerset”

    Mr Champkin, Bedford, October 2018

    • “Glebe House is in a lovely location, quiet and.peaceful situation and yet very convenient for the city of Wells and it's fabulous cathedral. Bristol, Bath and the coast are also easily reached as well as the many attractions of the Mendips and Somerrset. The house itself is very comfortable and everything you need is on hand. We shall be back!”

    Mr Larkins, Derby, August 2018

    • “First class accommodation in a picturesque Somerset village. Ideally located for easy access to the delights of the County. Wells is a gem of a town.”

    Mr Lewis, EAST COWES, August 2018

    • “Lovely cottage, very well-equipped & in a great setting.”

    Mrs Jobson, Maidenhead, July 2018

    • “We loved this house, it was comfortable, spacious and well equipped? Set in a lovely quiet village. Just 2 miles from Wells, It is in a central location for many of the top attractions. In the village there are 3 good public houses serving good food and beer.”

    Mrs Chamberlain, Boston, July 2018

    • “Great cottage, larger than the pictures suggest. Decent wi-fi, powerful showers, good kitchen and on a very quiet road. Good location, 5 mins walk from good pub (Ring of Bells) and only 5 mins drive from Wells, highly recommend.”

    Mr Brown, Bexleyheath, June 2018

    • “We loved Glebe House and Wookie. Angela was very friendly and helpful. It was close to Wells where we visited the Cathedral, Milton House and enjoyed some great eating places.”

    Mrs Arthur, Maidstone, June 2018

    • “It was very comfortable and clean and loved it. Would definitely recommend it. The shower has got to be the best I've ever been in!!!!!!”

    Mrs Rockach, Matlock, May 2018

    • “Glebe House is a lovely House to stay. Good Location in quiet village and friendly locals. Easy access to Wells, and N.T. properties.”

    Mrs Heatlie, Wallasey, May 2018

    • “Overall, I would say that Glebe House is an ideal holiday destination for a family, being spacious, comfortable and having 3 bathrooms as well as a downstairs loo. The house was immaculately clean, well equipped and comfortable. Lovely soft towels, a walk-in wardrobe and en suite shower room were all appreciated. However, parking was an issue. The holiday information says there is off road parking for 2 cars. There was not. For 6 of the 7 days we had to park in front of the house on the road. This was the only space available. Other points - the house smelt musty when we arrived, especially the living area. We did not find any DVDs, although they are listed in the property information. There is a certain lack of privacy in the living room, with no net curtains on the road side of the room, and no curtains at all on the courtyard side. Despite the latter points, I would still recommend a stay at Glebe House and would say it represented good value for money. *** Owner Response*** Thank you for your feedback. We have taken your points in to account and acted accordingly. We updated the website to avoid any future misunderstandings and notified any advance bookings regarding DVD's and parking at the property. We have installed Net Curtains on both windows and have ordered a Blind for the Courtyard side, thank you for the suggestion.”

    Mrs Luke, Cardiff, June 2018
