We rolled up to the hotel on a wet and windy night and were greeted by friendly staff and made to feel very welcome. We had bought our stay with a voucher as we were wanting to explore the area and it was a perfect base.The hotel is very attractive and our bedroom was superb. Our bed was extremely comfy and we slept a treat. The hotel is full of interesting things to look at and we were impressed by a great stack of games for guests and a selection of books in the bedroom. We would ceratinly come back.

Mentioned in the Domesday book as being part of the Abbess of Glastonbury's estate, the Manor house was originally build in Queen Ann Style before being upgraded in the 17th century to Bath stone. Purchased by Tudor & Lucy Hopkins in July 2013 the hotel has undergone a full refurbishment including transforming the restaurant into a relaxed informal dining space.

Nine bee hives provide the hotel honey and rare breed pigs live on the grounds.
