Simonsbath House
Simonsbath, Somerset

Heritage Rating: Heritage Rating

Set in the splendour of the Barle Valley, Simonsbath House stood alone for over 150 years before the small hamlet of Simonsbath developed in the 19th Century. This 350 year old house retains many of the wonderful features of yesteryear yet still provides a comfortable and cozy place to stay.
