I came with my moms church group last fall (sept) and was pleased with our visit. Mind you, looking at 20+ people is no small feat but our hosts had the patience of angels. We got settled in alright. I stayed in the judges masterrroom with my mom and a pair of sisters in our group. Great room btw. Love... More

We loved our stay here in the Clerks quarters. It is a lovely building, full of character and we were warmly looked after by Jenny who also served us a super breakfast ! Plenty of choice and all prepared to order. The room was comfy, the bathroom a bit of a squeeze... Overall we would return and absolutely recommend for... More

Stayed here last year in February or March whilst on a hen do. Brilliant place for large groups, we booked the whole house and the girls loved it. Absolutely bursting with character, open fire and great communal area. Proper little luxury to have the place to ourselves and so different from a bog standard hotel.

Old building used to be a court and gaol. The B&B side, apart from the lovely building, is friendly but fairly average in what it offers. It is well placed for touring Somerset and Bristol. The road traffic is noisy throughout the night. Rooms are small but okay. The mattress in our room liked to sag in the middle, which... More

Upon arriving at The Old Court, Nancy greeted us with such warmth into what is essentially her home. She offered tea or coffee, showed us to our lovely room (the Magistrates Chamber i believe) & booked us into the quirky Old Station Inn for a delicious dinner after a long day in Bristol. The room was nicely decorated with original... More
