The Dairy - Dog Friendly Accommodation in Wells, SomersetBetween Wells and Cheddar is a beautiful conservation village surrounded by magnificent Mendip walks. Hidden up a quiet lane, behind high stone walls, you’ll find a 400 year old, stone cottage called The Dairy.
The Dairy is a charming, two bedroom dog friendly self-catering cottage. A former 17th century farm dairy, was carefully renovated, keeping the original doors and beams, exposed stone and other original features. With thick, stone walls and gas central heating the Dairy is cosy in winter but cool in summer.
The Dairy is completely self contained, attached to the owners’ home; a traditional, former Somerset farmhouse. We are surrounded by beautiful scenery and situated away from main roads, but a minute's walk from the centre of Westbury-sub-Mendip, a pretty village at the foot of the Mendip hills with a pub, shop and hourly bus service. Within easy reach of Wells, Cheddar and Glastonbury and the coast and many other interesting places to visit.
Couples looking for a peaceful retreat, families with babies and children, dogs and their well behaved owners, walkers, cyclists, birdwatchers or just friends. Whoever you are, all our guests are warmly welcomed and looked after. We really want you to get the most from your stay with us and we are always happy to advise you on places to visit, or discovering the hidden gems in this beautiful part of Somerset.
Your hosts Cathy and Will aim to ensure the highest standards. You’ll find the cottage clean and fresh, with tasteful decorations and fresh flowers. The comfortable beds are made up with crisp white bed linen and there’s a supply of cotton towels. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you’ll need, just add your food for a holiday home from home.

“Just had a wonderful week at The Dairy. The cottage was just what we needed. Quiet, quaint and very comfortable and well equipped, it was more spacious than we'd expected. Our dog Nell was in heaven with all the wonderful walks in the village and surrounding area. The owners are very kind and friendly and gave us lots of info on places to go, including the village pub where we could take Nell. We will definitely return! ”
