Welcome to The Moody Goose at The Old Priory
Situated in the market town of Midsomer Norton, just a short drive from the cities of Bath, Bristol and Wells, The Old Priory is reputed to be one of the oldest houses in Somerset, and dates back to c.1152. This historically significant house was later purchased by Christchurch College, Oxford and was owned by them until 1712 when it was sold to a private buyer. A secret tunnel is said to have existed linking the nearby 15th century church to The Priory, which was likely to have been used for escape and refuge in the days of religious persecution.
Today, the ancient honeyed stonework and a beautiful walled garden bursting with colour in the summer months greet you upon entering the gravelled driveway. Within the hotel, all the original architectural features are retained and luxurious accommodation is provided in seven unique bedrooms. Each is decorated to the highest standard with sumptuous fabrics and wall coverings, antique furniture and attention to detail.
Curvy flights of stairs lead to charming attic rooms with original beams, and heavy iron studded doors open to beautifully furnished rooms adorned with four poster beds. The bedrooms share an style which reflects the charm and atmosphere of the old, combining with the comfort and convenience of modern day living.
