Your Luxury Escape

Life's too short for ordinary holidays, you deserve the chance to escape


Laylands was the first building on the road to Wells-next-the-Sea and one of the earliest buildings in the 15th century town. It was originally built as an inn offering shelter to the drovers from the north bringing cattle and sheep to catch boats to the continent. The old settle where the drovers drank their ale still remains in the corner of the house.

Laylands enjoys an elevated position with views over a green belt conservation area. The house is detached with secluded front and rear gardens. The large rear garden, which is walled and south facing, has mature fruit trees and a large patio, perfect for outside dining.

The house is situated just a five minute walk from the harbour and the sea. Wells beach, with its famous white sand dunes and beach huts, is easily reached by a 15-minute walk through the pine wood. Having recently undergone a complete renovation which is sympathetic to the historic heart of the house, it also encompasses all the conveniences for modern living.
