Wells Cathedral High Parts Tours

Wells Cathedral High Part Tours 

In Spring of this year we were invited by Wells Cathedral to experience the opening of their High Part Tours.

It was a brilliant 90 minute tour of the upper areas of the Cathedral.

                               

 

We discovered hidden spaces, medieval tracing floors, galleries. trumpet holes, chambers and saw what it was like behind the Wells clock. Amazing!

               

There are up to 250 steps, some uneven floors, low ceilings and narrow parts, (the narrowest point just 60 cms wide) …….but it is well worth a visit!

The Mid-Somerset Show

The Mid-Somerset Show, always a fantastic day out for all the family, took place on Sunday 19th August, and thankfully, it was a lovely sunny day. The only free entry show in the UK, and there is always something there for everyone to enjoy!

Located on neighbouring fields, very close to our Bed and Breakfast, it was great to have staying with us,  judges, a commentator for the event and guests just wanting to attend the show.

                            

The Show has features of an agricultural show with competitions for show jumping, livestock, poultry & dogs

   

………. as well as competitions for fleece, vegetables, fruit, jams, cakes, floral arrangements, arts and crafts.

            

                                      I’m pleased to say my flapjacks did extremely well 🙂

                      

We are sure you would enjoy it in 2019….and Middleton House is the closest Bed and Breakfast to it!

Somerset attractions we have visited recently

It is great to have this new website where we can now share some of the local attractions that we have visited so far this year that we hope our guests may want to enjoy.

 

A visit to Cheddar Gorge is always a great day out, whether you want to enjoy the views from the cliff top,   

visit the caves where prehistoric man once lived and where the Cheddar Cheese is left to mature,

             

or, just have a stroll by the river. The independent shops have interesting gift ideas and don’t forget to sample the delicious Cheddar cheeses!  We had a lovely day out there  at the beginning of May, and it is only 11 miles (approx) away from Middleton House!

Also, at the end of May, on Bank holiday Monday, there is the Annual Duck Race hosted by the Cheddar Vale Lions Club. The 28th Duck Race will take place on Bank Holiday Monday 2019. It really is quite a fun time and, if your duck crosses the winning line first, there is a £100 prize!

                   

We hope you will have a good day out at Cheddar too!
