Budget Friendly Hotel and B&B Accommodation
A trip to the ancient and beautiful Wells is on the to do list for many visitors to England and Somerset has a wealth of activities and picturesque villages to explore. It has a lovely selection of places to stay and finding a room or self-catering cottage is easy with a few hints and tricks of where and when to look.
Hotels in Wells are mostly unique, independent and of 3 or 4 stars offering their guests the chance to stay in some of the most ancient buildings in England. There are a couple of places offering more modern surroundings whilst maintaining a traditional atmosphere. Bed and breakfasts are a popular choice for visitors giving a taste of Somerset’s famous hospitality and there is a selection of star ratings and surroundings. During the really busy periods, it’s a great idea to try places outside of the town such as Wookey Hole and North Wootten.
The traditional English pub with rooms is a great choice for your visit on a budget and can offer some of the best value in town. Self-catering is a great choice if your visit is going to be a longer one and this will give you the chance to save money on eating out.
Cheapest Deals in the town centre (also last minute)
The majority of hotels are based in the Market close to the Cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace and Gardens. There are also a selection of more modern hotels on Glastonbury Road just outside of the centre of town.
B&Bs are dotted all over Somerset and tend to be on the outskirts of town, but everything is within walking distance. Self-catering cottages tend to be a little further away and would usually be a car drive away from the very centre. Pubs with rooms are located in the very centre of town but can be a little noisy as they are usually surrounded by other pubs and restaurants.
With the popularity of Somerset missing the school summer holidays is a great way of avoiding the crowds. Try to book in advance if you want to get a good deal in one of the hotels or self-catering cottages as these book up fast. Waiting for a last minute deal can be a great way to save money if you are flexible about where you stay. Keeping an eye out for sales and special offers, these will give you a chance at a cheap deal.
Saving money on your next trip to Somerset can be really easy. Try not to travel during the peak periods or try for somewhere outside of Wells like Wookey Hole, home to the famous Wookey Hole Caves, to get a budget friendly room. Finding out where and how to book your accommodation is a great way to save money as there are always deals to be found to make your next holiday a money saving success.
