Dulcote history - fascinating site dedicated to bringing the history of Dulcote to life.

The Coach house is 200yards away from the Wells to Glastonbury section of the Sustrans National Cycle Network Route 3 of the West Country Way. The Dulcote section is along a disused railway and is a favourite place for quiet walks with the dog and easy cycle rides.


Farmers' market is on in Wells every Wednesday and Saturday - you can walk from the Coach House at Little Fountains in Dulcote! It takes about 20 minutes and the footpath takes you across lovely fields with a great view of the Cathedral and the Bishops Palace on the way.


The Geoge Inn, Croscombe - our favourite local pub. Great food and good company. The perfect village pub. Recently voted CAMRA Rural Pub of the year 2011/2012!!! Well deserved.


Jill Parkinson's paintings and prints adorn the Coach House walls. She is a local artist. All are for sale should you want to take one home with you!

Glebe Farm B&B in Ashmore, Dorset


Glebe Farm B&B is another very special place to stay. After you've booked with the Coach House why not have a look at something completely different in Dorset.

Stunning contemporary farmhouse set in the most peaceful location well away from any traffic sound in Dorset's highest village. This is a luxury B&B with lovely rooms and fabulous views. Have a look at their website or find them on the National Trust B&B list.




The Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury


There are many associations with Chalice Well covering countless centuries; it is a timeless and sacred place, full of legend, symbolism and atmosphere, a place whose history has no beginning.......

Many of the Coach House visitors find the Chalice Well Gardens in Glastonbury a delightful place to spend a few hours.

Walks in Somerset

I'm working on this page intermittently - any ideas suggestions or links do let me know.


Visit the Somerset wetlands and see the amazing sight of starlings in their millions roosting. Winter is an especially good time to see this phenomenon.

The Coach House is ideally placed near Glastonbury to visit the Somerset levels where the starlings put on a stunning aerial display at dusk before they roost for the night in the reed beds.

The best places to see them are :

Westhay Peat moors - Somerset Wildlife Trust

Ham Wall - RSPB

Shapwick Heath - Natural England

Call the Avalon Marshes Starling Hotline for up to date information on the best site as it varys from day to day: 07866 554 142

For some lovely photos do look at Lynne Newtons updates on the bbc somerset website, and her own at Fox Biddy.




HOT FUZZ was filmed in Wells!

Visit the village of Sandford scene of the Hot Fuzz action! Yes it really was filmed down the road in Wells last year in May 2006. Not South Gloucestershire at all! See the hot spots where it all happened, the Castle (really the Bishop's Palace), St Cuthberts church yard, Wells market place, the Swan hotel and Somerfields...

Just a walk away from the Coach House into Wells across the fields. Enjoy the ambience and luxury of home while you explore the area. Shop in Somerfields, drink in the Crown. Make a long weekend of it, we look forward to meeting you.
