We stayed at the Old Priory Inn over the bank holiday weekend. We booked it very last minute and what a find! The house is full of character and very well maintained. The garden is beautiful and we enjoyed a lovely picnic there. We had a family room at the top of the house, the room was very clean and... More

We went here for a family members 21st meal..There was 12 of us.. Beautiful oldy fashioned rooms with a nice variety of "different" foods. Although tasty and very well presented the meals are small and expensive. For two people it cost £100!

I don't think this is the correct place for this review - we have not catered for any 21st Birthday's recently and do not charge at this sort of price point when we do serve food. More

We found this by accident after a long day and what a find! Full of character (yes some of the building was uneven and very old), but renovated to suit, 'The Old Priory' was a gem. Our room was spacious with a large bathroom including a bath. Downstairs there is a large sitting room for all guests to relax in,... More

Thanks to Matt and Melody for a fantastic weekend! 19 of us stayed at The Old Priory. The house was absolutely perfect, Bath and Bristol both easily reachable. Matt and Melody sorted a barbecue out for us on Saturday afternoon which was ideal. The garden is beautiful and perfect for a spot of cricket or croquet (or 3 a side... More

A group of us rented the whole Priory for a four day gathering and it was a most wonderful experience. The building itself is beautiful and has been very tastefully restored. The kitchen is professionally equipped, the sitting rooms are comfortable and well sized, and the bedrooms are beautifully decorated, and are all en suite. Everywhere was spotlessly clean, beautifully... More

I rented out The Old Priory for a weekend with a group of friends as we were attending Bath races. The owners were very helpful throughout the booking process and were very flexible in accommodating all of us by providing extra beds. The house is fantastic for large group bookings as there is plenty of space in the communal areas,... More

Two nights here and we didn't want to leave! The house itself is phenomenol with huge stone flag floors, the biggest hearth I've ever seen outside of a castle and even a resident tiger (just wait until you see it)! We stayed in The Chapel room which was a great size, en suite and with its own ' vestibule'. The... More

Such a wonderful old place, I really liked it not least because my father lived here as a child and the property features in my next book. Very ye olde English, loaded with charm, I can't think of anything I didn't like.
