Description An exciting opportunity to create five new holiday cottages of traditional design. The planning consent allows for the demolition of two existing agricultural barns and the construction of five new holiday cottages comprising a block of four (1 x 2 bedroom, 1 x 3 bedroom and 2 x 4 bedroom properties) and a detached 3-bedroom bungalow.

The application allows for a new access to be created from Milton Lane.

Set at the foothills of the Mendip Hills AONB, the location enjoys fine views over the adjoining countryside and is advantageous to benefit from the wide array of nearby tourist attractions including Wookey Hole Caves, Cheddar Gorge, Mendip Hills, Glastonbury Abbey and the Tor and is only two miles from the Cathedral City of Wells.

There is a footpath that runs to the south of the site. This will cross the new entrance but only a short section will cross the site before it re-joins the vendors retained land.

Planning A copy of the planning consent and associated plans can be viewed via Mendip District Council's online planning search, referencing the application number (Ref: 2018/0114/FUL).

Location & Directions Wookey Hole, well-known for the Wookey Hole Caves, benefits a popular public house and the city of Wells is two miles away and offers all the necessary amenities and facilities. Bristol and Bath lie 22 miles to the north and north-east respectively with mainline train stations to London at Castle Cary as well as Bristol and Bath. Bristol International Airport is 15 miles to the north-west.

Leaving Wells north west via Wookey Hole Road, follow the signs towards Wookey Hole pass Underwood Business Park on the right-hand side and the road will bear round to the right.
