Wookey is a charming village which is big on community spirit, set just 2 miles to the south west of Wells, 6 miles to the east of Wedmore and Cheddar.  A charming village steeped in history with the River Axe running through the village.  At the heart of the village is Wookey Hub, café and village stores which stocks a wide range of local produce with meat supplied by a local butcher, fresh fruit and veg and fish can be ordered for collection on a Tuesday.  The café serves great coffee, loose leaf tea and rich chocolate bar milkshakes – a hit with young and more mature alike!  Wookey boasts 3 good pubs, the 14th century Ring of Bells, The Pheasant and Burcott Inn, all serving food and providing a traditional village pub experience.  



The ancient city of Wells being the smallest city in England punches above its weight, offering a wonderful array of independent boutique shops as well as high street staples such as Boots and Waterstones.  Local supermarkets include Waitrose, Tesco and Morrisons.  With some great restaurants including the recently opened Bishop’s Eye, you really are spoilt for choice be it a fantastic coffee from ‘Strangers with Coffee’ or an organic feast from The Good Earth Restaurant.  A morning stroll around the Bishop’s palace moat, a concert in the magnificent Cathedral or attending the well renowned Wells Literature festival which attracts around 14,000 visitors each autumn, the number of excellent events grows each year.
