Ancient Gate House Hotel

20 Sadler Street, Wells, Somerset BA5 2SE - United Kingdom
Booking Line: +44 (0)1775 843417

The Ancient Gate House Hotel is one of the oldest and most interesting hotels in England. Its situation is unique - set on Wells Cathedral Green, facing its beautiful West Front.

A spiral stone staircase, trodden down by centuries of feet and quaint little passages are some of the original features and character that have been retained. The bedrooms are all ensuite and include two four-poster beds and two half-testers.

The Great West Gate which forms part of the property (now called Browne's gate) is designated an Ancient Monument. Its history can be traced back to the feudal barons and still preserved with the Cathedral records are details of its rebuilding in 1473. During the reign of Edward VI (1547-1553) it was an armed keep and after a period of confiscation it was handed back to the Church by Mary Tudor (1553-1558). Internet Access points in the back of our telehones.
