SOMERSET CARNIVALS:

The Somerset Carnivals are highly regarded as the largest illuminated procession in the world. They occur late on in the year at various locations including: Bridgwater, Burnham-on-Sea, Chard, Ilminster, Glastonbury, North Petherton, Shepton Mallet, Taunton, Wellington, Wells, Weston-Super-Mare, and Yeovil.

They go back 400 years, and are one of the most spectacular events in Somerset today. In some of the bigger locations (such as Bridgwater), you can expect to see crowds of up to 150,000.

The carnival floats are designed and built by dedicated carnival clubs around the West Country. These clubs have many members who raise money throughout the year, and work tirelessly to achieve the spectacular carnival entries. The floats take part in the parade along with other entries; these range from clowns dancing in the streets to 100ft illuminated carnival floats (some with up to 30,000 light bulbs) pulled by tractors.

About Suzanne Hart

We live in a village just outside of Cheddar which is about 7 miles from Wells.

Suzanne Hart purchased this House in 2007

Why Suzanne Hart chose Wells

We both love the beautiful City of Wells with it's medieval architecture and unique atmosphere and when this property came on the market we couldn't resist it.

What makes this House unique

We fell in love with the views of Wells Cathedral and Glastonbury Tor from the house. It is only a short walk down one of the oldest streets in Wells to the centre plus there is a very good pub at the end of this street!

                                                                Our second stay here as a family. We love it! Very comfortable with everything you need. In a lovely, quiet area but only 10 mins walk to Cathedral Green and town. We will be back!

                                                                Lovely property would recommend it to anyone. Plenty of room and nice and clean.

                                                                We had a lovely stay in wells. The house was the perfect base for exploring the area, walkable from the town centre and fully equipped and spacious for our two families.

                                                                Many thanks Suzanne for our wonderful stay!

                                                                A beautiful apartment in beautiful Wells

                                                                Mary P.

                                                                What a wonderful stay we had here in Wells. This property is absolutely terrific. From the first contact with Suzanne til the day of departure, the process was as smooth as anyone could ask for. And the apartment is very comfortable and so well equipped - even a clothesline and clothes pins to hang laundry on the patio. It was immaculately clean and a wealth of information on the area was provided. The stairs to the 3rd floor gave us good exercise, but could be a problem for some guests. Thank you Suzanne for sharing your property with us and we will DEFINITELY stay here again if we have the good fortune to be able to return to southwest England.
