Hotel details

This 17th century coaching inn was mentioned in the novel 'Northanger Abbey' by Jane Austen after she visited the house during her childhood. It was built on the site of a 12th century priory which was destroyed by Henry VIII to provide rest to travellers on the Bath to Gloucester route. The inn was extended in the Georgian period to its present state. In more recent times, it has undergone an extensive makeover to ensure that the property's unique character is complimented by the convenience and reliability of modern amenities. On 3 acres of land with amazing landscaped gardens, guests can enjoy a quiet drink, eat al fresco or simply take a long stroll around the Water Garden, perfectly situated to the east of the main house to catch the sun and illuminated at night to enhance the colours.
