Wells Cathedral School boarding houses are a range of beautiful medieval and 18th century houses. Most are set within their own garden and are adjacent to the main school campus. Bedrooms are a combination of twin rooms and small dormitories. Each house has a lounge area and a kitchen which guests are free to use. Toilets and showers are mainly shared, although there are a small number of ensuite bathrooms. Bed linen and towels are provided during your stay. The dining hall is on the main campus and is where breakfast and all other meals are served.

We can offer B&B, half board or full board options. Boarding houses are exclusive to the group staying so you will not have to share with any other group. Bed linen and towels are provided.

Price on application.


We have 50 spaces for parking in a private car park which is short walk away from the main school site, plus additional spaces can be allocated, including a dedicated accessible parking area. Further parking can be found in one of the five other main public car parks in Wells city centre.
