The Old Priory 
 Near Bath

Situated just 15 minutes from BathWells and Bristol, in the market town of Midsomer Norton, The Old Priory with it's beams and inglenooks, is reputed to be one of the oldest houses in Somerset, and dates back to c.1152. This historically significant house was an Augustinian Priory in medieval times and was later seized by Henry VIII and given to Christchurch College, Oxford.  It owned by Christchurch until 1712 when it was sold to a private local buyer. A secret tunnel is said to have existed linking the nearby 15th century church to The Priory, which was possibly used for escape and refuge in the days of religious persecution.  The building was later used as a school for young ladies in Victorian times. 

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 guest house, all the original architectural features are retained and accommodation is provided in six unique bedrooms.  

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.
