We have loved our stay here. The property was immaculate, the location is amazing. We have loved sitting in the window seats or outside with a coffee to admire the view. We cannot recommend enough The Queen Vic at Priddy. The pies are out of this world! And definitely worth the walk to get there. You must try them! In Wells we ate at Da Luciano and thoroughly enjoyed it as well. Thank you for our lovely stay.
