The major towns of the area, Bristol, Bath, Taunton and Yeovil are all within commuting distance. Castle Cary is the nearest train station with fast links to London. Wells has local markets twice a week and many medieval buildings including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. There is a busy local shopping centre, a broad range of societies and activities and excellent State & Private schools in the area including Wells Blue School, Wells Cathedral School and Millfield School.
Wellesley Park is just less than 2 miles from Wells in a quiet tranquil position in some of the most beautiful countryside of the county. The gentle hills around North Wootton are absolutely delightful and are very accessible with many footpaths and bridleways.
Wellesley Park is a private estate of around 17.5 acres which has been superbly redeveloped creating 18 outstanding individual properties together with unique facilities including a tennis court and spa with a very large indoor swimming pool, sauna, reading room and gym.

The properties have been developed within the original holding and whilst are virtually entirely new constructions they combine the style and character of period buildings with contemporary architecture and high-tech features. All have their own individual, mainly enclosed private gardens set amongst the landscaped communal gardens and grounds.
