I have created a private living space in the attic of my own home to serve as a plain and simple, clean and cosy bed sitting room for those who wish or need to visit Wells for any number of reasons and who may like to work, play, study or relax (as well as just sleep) in peace, privacy and comfort. Ali’s Attic has a light, quiet, airy feel - and a view of the Cathedral over the rooftops.

The space

Your space: The attic furniture is flexible and moveable, as you will see from the photos, and can sleep one or two people with new good quality beds adjoining or separate. The sofa and comfy chair provide for lounging and the upright chairs and drop leaf table-trolley allow for eating, laptops, hobbies, card/board games or just spreading out stuff. Ali’s Attic has Wi-Fi, lots of sockets to plug-in/recharge, DAB radio, electric fan/heater and tea/coffee/kettle. Next to this second story attic room guests have their own (small but private) toilet/wash room.

Guest access

The house: Situated in a quiet cul-de-sac with off-road parking the 1950s three bed semi had its loft converted in 2006 and new double glazing installed in 2017. As well as exclusive use of the attic room and washroom, guests may use the main bath/shower room on the first floor which is shared with the host. The attic ante-room at the foot of the attic stairs has a working surface and chairs. A TV, hair dryer, and iron/ironing board can be made available here on request. Guests may park on my driveway.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with guests: I hope you will have everything you need in your own private space aloft but that you will also feel free to ask for any help or advice I may be able to give of a practical or local nature. I shall be around and at home for most of your stay and, whilst keen to meet you, will also be mindful of your privacy. You may meet my partner or family and friends who happen to visit while you are here.

Other things to note

Prices: One guest £35, second guest in same attic room £15. Please note that breakfast is not included in these prices but you are welcome to bring your own bread/cereal/drink etc for which I can make space in my fridge/kitchen and provide crockery and cutlery.

Check in and out times: I prefer check in to be between 5 and 8pm and check out before 10am but can usually be flexible in that I don’t go out to work. Please tell me between what hours you hope to arrive and leave so that we can come to a prior arrangement that suits us both.

Suitability, safety and security: The loft conversion complies with Building Regulations and I carry out my own Fire Safety Risk Assessment for the benefit of myself and my guests. In the light of this would you please note before you book that the attic space itself has sloping ceilings and being on the second floor requires guests to climb two flights of stairs so will not be suitable or ideal for all individuals. Please consider the mobility, sight and hearing of you and your companion, and view the house rules below, before booking. Your attic room can be locked when you leave the house.

House rules: No children (0-12years), pets, smoking, cooking, candles or other naked flames, drugs, excessive alcohol consumption or noise, and no noise at all please between 11pm and 8am. If you wish to eat in your room please ask to use my crockery and cutlery and return it to the kitchen for washing, together with any food and packaging waste for disposal. Otherwise please understand that this is my home and treat its contents, myself and my own visitors and neighbours with the respect you would want for yourselves in your home. Please do not invite anyone else into my home without my express permission.

Ali's attic was 5 star accommodation! The attic was extremely clean, comfortable with stylish decor and thoughtful details. Alison was warmly welcoming and herself and Chris readily shared their local knowledge which enhanced my visit to Wells and the surrounding area. Excellent quiet location within easy walking distance to central Wells. Highly recommend!

Ali's Attic provided us with a warm, comfortable abode after a long day of traveling from another city on a wet cold day. We reached Wells very late in the evening and the host has so kindly stayed up to welcome us and ensure that we get settled in quickly and comfortably. We really appreciate the space and privacy we needed to get a full rest before venturing out into Wells the next day. It has the warm feeling of a home within a home. We had a really pleasant stay at Wells.

Ali's attic is exactly as described, and Ali and her husband Chris were delightful hosts. They could not have been more welcoming & accommodating. The whole house is spotlessly clean, safe and comfortable. We have no hesitation in recommending Ali's attic for your visit to Wells - it's a great location too, very near the town. Thank you again, Ali & Chris, we hope to see you again soon. Sheila & Malcolm xx

I loved Aly's attic! Perfect location, walkable into the village of Wells, and she is a super friendly and charming host! The room was bright and cheery and I appreciated having the coffee for the morning and that she prepared us tea upon my arrival, along with having a nice chat. Aly really seems to enjoy hosting. A++

Alison is a suberb host, incredibly welcoming and helpful. The room was absolutely immaculate and the beds extremely comfortable and there was so much attention to detail, from a selection of nibbles to a fabulous folder of places to visit. The hot shower was very luxurious and it was such a pleasure to be able to spend a couple of days in such peace and comfort. Definitely looking forward to a repeat visit.

This was a lovely place to stay. Lovely airy attic room, containing everything you could want. The house is short walk into the centre of Wells, so exactly what I'd hoped for. Alison is very friendly and helpful, even sending me traffic advice while I was on my way to her. I would thoroughly recommend Alison's Attic, and would be extremely happy to stay again.

I have lived in Wells for 17 years now and grew up not far away so am a loyal devotee of my beloved Mendip Hills and Somerset. My partner and I both love birds, boats, books, music, history, gardens, wildlife and walks.
