Mells is the most picturesque village with lovely walks in all directions and pretty church. The Award winning pub The Talbot: an Elizabethan Coaching in, serves incredible food in the grill, restaurant or outside eating area.

The village shop has a post office and well stocked shop with a small café attached and the children will love to feed the ducks at the village pond.

The nearest town is Frome, where the old streets are lined with quirky independent shops and cafes. Once a month there is a local market where stallholders sell delicicious food and homemade wares.
Bruton is also worth a visit. Home to the very cool art gallery Hauser and Wirth, an outdoor activity centre for children at Mill on the Brue and some great restaurants including Michelin starred restaurant Osip.
