Wells, the smallest city in England, lies in beautiful countryside below the Mendip Hills ? an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Its medieval centre has local markets twice a week, good restaurants, a thriving high street and many important ancient buildings, including the Cathedral and moated Bishops Palace. Throughout the year Wells hosts festivals for Music, Literature, Art and Food, and has twinned links with Burgundy, the Rhineland and Northern Italy.

Glastonbury's past and its present are linked with its dominant landmark, the Tor. It's been a religious centre throughout history and further back into the times of legends. The town grew up alongside the Abbey and today it's a thriving market town and a major tourist venue. Medieval Glastonbury - designated a conservation area - clusters around the evocative ruins of the Abbey. The Saxon village of Wedmore has existed for well over a thousand years and is a delightful and extremely active centre. There are historic buildings including the medieval church next to an old coaching inn. Wells, Glastonbury and Wedmore provide a wide range of shops, pubs, restaurants, commercial, sporting and cultural facilities and organisations. There are many societies and clubs for those who would like to join a diverse social community.

Schools 
There are excellent state & independent schools in the area which include several good primary schools, Sexeys, Wells Blue School, Strode College, Wells Cathedral School, Downside, All Hallows and Millfield. The village has a very busy community centred on the village hall with many local activities and a very popular village pub with a reputation for excellent food. Immediately available from the village are footpaths bridleways and droves which give access to the beautiful surrounding countryside. It is usual to see swans, herons, deer and other wildlife within or on the fringes of the village. In an issue of Country Living the Somerset Levels were considered one of ?Britain's Best Wild Places?.
