If you're looking for a relaxed and friendly retreat with a touch of luxury in an historic setting - somewhere where you can take a deep breath and unwind following a day out exploring the Somerset and the Mendip Hills - then the historic grade II listed Longbridge House, is the B&B for you.
With parts dating back to the 14th Century the house is best known for being where the Duke of Monmouth stayed before and after the Battle of Sedgemoor in 1685, before he was killed by Hanging Judge Jeffries in the Bloody Assizes. The house is also locally famous for being where John Lewis (of John Lewis Partnership fame) lived for much of his childhood alongside a very successful local and international business man John Collett. In more recent years the house has been owned by the Bishop of London who performed the wedding ceremony of William and Kate.
Chill out after your journey, enjoy the homemade cake in your bedroom, the Monmouth Room, with a pot of tea or cafetiere of coffee. Or relax outside watching the birds on the birdfeeder, our own chickens scratching around & plan your stay using our books and maps.
