About Swan Hotel Wells
Parts of the hotel date back to at least 1422. However, over the years, the hotel has been sympathetically refurbished and extended. Now, it offers modern amenities in a beautiful setting. In other words, the Swan Hotel is one of the best Somerset hotels.
Dating back to Roman times, the beautiful city of Wells gets its name from natural springs. For example, these can be found in the beautiful gardens of the Bishop’s Palace. Because we are located in the heart of the county, Wells makes the perfect base from which to explore.
Wells lies on the Mendip Hills. And these ancient ranges of hills is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Similarly, they are recognized as one of England’s most attractive landscapes. Also, they overlook the Somerset Levels.
