ON YOUR DOORSTEP

Access to a private 200 acre garden is on your doorstep.

Meander through established woodland of beech, oak, and ash; through pastureland and around the lake.

Perfectly placed seating areas mean you can escape and breathe deeply of this magnificent countryside, or even picnic whilst glimpsing deer leaping and buzzards soaring overhead. You are sure to see pheasants in the cornfields and hear the occasional hoot of an owl.

Our all weather tennis court is open 365 days a year and is complimentary to all guests. So, if you fancy yourself as the next Henman or Sharapova, then why not take to the court. Rackets are available from the Spa reception and use is on a first come first served basis.

Wellesley Park is home to a private fishing lake, situated in a neighbouring field to the properties, with views across to Wells Cathedral. Fishing is available to all guests however we request that all fish are returned to the lake unharmed. Please note that it is essential that anyone over the age of 12 years of age holds an Environment Agency rod licence prior to fishing on the lake. A licence can be obtained in advance of your stay from a Post Office, or by telephoning 0844 800 5386 or by clicking on this link:

Well-managed public footpaths lead from Wellesley Park to Wells and a cycle route adjoins the estate allowing you to explore the countryside at your own pace or to access the more technically challenging mountain bike routes on the Mendip Hills. Group excursions by mountain bike, and bike training (bikes supplied) are available near Bridgwater, exploring the Quantock Hills.

If you wish to see rather more of the countryside with somewhat less effort then you can soar in a glider from nearby Priddy airfield to 1500 feet over Cheddar Gorge.

There are excellent golf courses nearby and high quality spectator sports within easy reach: horse racing at Taunton and Wincanton, rugby at Bath, and county cricket at Taunton.
