“12th Century house turned cosy B&B is one of the oldest properties in Somerset let alone the quaint village of Midsomer Norton. Six charming bedrooms are comfortable and exude the dated charm. Enjoy breakfast in the garden or in your room, before exploring the local area. ”

Hotel Review

The Old Priory is something of an oasis. Once in its ancient courtyard you’d never guess that a scrappy provincial High Street was round the corner. You’ll find listed ecclesiastical panelling in the hall, three enormous original fireplaces, ancient beams, flagstone floors and a secret passage running from the kitchen to the church. Upstairs there are seven dark, quaint bedrooms. Perfect for a weekend in the country
