The owner jokes that you have to have a sense of humour to stay here and she's not wrong! In years of weekend breaks, I have to say that I've not felt more like a prisoner since visiting my brother who worked at DARTMOOR. Not an inmate I might add! The place seemed damp, unloved and not pleasant at all.... More

Certainly as the host it would have been nice if he put as much effort into being a good guest as he does a comedian. As it is, I am in agreement with him....go be imprisoned elsewhere...perhaps Tasmania. I would just suggest that anyone interested in visiting our area read one of the other wonderful reviews as firstly there are... More

We have just come back from staying here for the weekend. We had a lovely time. Matt was very helpful and made sure everything ran smoothly. Breakfast was good especially the full English. The place is very unusual and makes a good talking point. Would stay here again. We also visited the Pony and Trap - one michelin star and... More

We have just stayed at the Old Court for the weekend and had a great time in this characterful and entertaining building. We had three families together and it was just perfect for a sociable and relaxing time. All the bedrooms were very comfortable and the spacious entertaining areas made for a fun stay. For such a large property the... More

As a bank holiday treat, my mum and I stayed here last August. I booked the trip while my mum was away, so I think she was probably a little nervous when I told her I'd booked us an old prison cell. But we could not have loved it more! It was so novel, with interesting features all over; it... More

Once shown around the Old Court House I was determined to use it for a family gathering and certainly wasn't disappointed. All the rooms, ranging from the grand Judge's suite to the more modest cells were comfortable and appealing. Thirty of us sat down to eat and almost everyone stayed so we were able to breakfast together too. We had... More

Situated in a small village not far from Bristol thin is an old courthouse complete with cells. We had a large family get together taking the whole property. There was plenty of sleeping and dining space for about 25 people and ample parking. The building itself has stacks of character and fun exploring . Great for a family and friends... More

We stayed as a family party of 30 having booked the whole venue for the night. My room was really comfortable and we had a great evening. Everywhere was really clean and cosy and its a lovely building. We would definitely consider using the venue again.

We stayed in the old court house for a night. We arrived as pre instructions at our allotted time (which seems odd for a B&B) and was warmly welcomed by Nancy who showed us our room which was the barristers room at the top of a flight of stairs. It was a comfortable size with a large four poster bed,... More

Stayed as part of a group and it was a nice experience. Our room was possibly the littlest but the breakfast was pretty okay. It's certainly a quirky spot in Somerset and Nantcy the manager was very freindly. I think we will come again with my friends. Thank you.
