Outside, there is a pretty courtyard garden, an ideal place to sit with a refreshing drink on a pleasant summer’s day.

A gentle stroll takes you to the picturesque ruins of the 14th century Nunney Castle; enjoy a picnic beside the moat, or discover the castle's history and on the way home why not stop off and treat yourselves to the real ales on offer at the local pub?

About the location

NUNNEY

Frome 3 miles; Bath 18 miles; Glastonbury 18 miles.

Arguably one of Somerset's prettiest villages, Nunney is dominated by England's smallest castle, built in the 14th century and surrounded by a picturesque moat. Sadly ruined during the Civil War, the castle still commands an attractive, much-photographed, centre piece to the village. Local amenities include a tea room, shop, newsagent and a pub serving good food and real ales, whilst the annual August street fayre is well-known for its carnival atmosphere! The nearby town of Frome offers a good selection of shops and restaurants as well as regular events at The Merlin Theatre. Alternatively visit Longleat House, gardens and safari park, or Stourhead, both a short drive, whilst ancient Glastonbury, Wells cathedral, Wookey Hole, and the majestic cities of Bath and Salisbury are all easily accessible. A picturesque Somerset village providing a most interesting holiday location at any time of the year.
