Accommodation Description:

Explore Bath and the West Country from The George at Nunney a 17th century coaching inn with bar restaurant and BandB hotel facilities facing the romantic ruin of the 14th century Nunney CastleWith Stonehenge Avebury Salisbury Shaftesbury Bristol and Cheddar Gorge all within an hour's drive this is the ideal BandB hotel accommodation to explore gardens go shopping discover history or study wildlife during a brisk walk in the countryside a midweek break romantic holiday or family getaway. Small as it is Nunney is seductive. Spend a few days among its architectural mix of medieval austerity and Georgian elegance and the idea of Nunney as center of the universe somehow seems less bizarre.

Los Angeles TimesDominated by the turrets of Nunney Castle the village lies on the edge of the Mendip Hills and retains the image of a rural idyll. The Times Under new ownership since August 2008 The George at Nunney has quickly established itself as a firm favourite with locals regulars and travellers alike. Enjoy drinks by an open fire before a gastronomic 3-course dinner in our restaurant or sample our bar menu of salads and other hot and cold options.

Head chef Wayne Carnegie and his team focus on seasonal often locally sourced ingredients including favourites such as milk fed pork with sage and apple roast Aberdeen Angus beef Corsley lamb goats cheese salad homemade beef and ale pies dark chocolate mousse and fine Somerset cheeses. The bar lounge and restaurant areas are recently refurbished and are light and airy with great character: exposed beams open fireplaces bread oven. The garden is a haven for those looking for a cold pint in the sunshine.

From time to time I have to convince myself that moving out of London was not a mistake and one of the best places at which to do that is a small town south of Bath not far from Frome called Nunney. It has a stream ambling through the middle in a very photogenic manner under houses and little bridges and even on to the road in rainy weather. It has one of the biggest and best-preserved ruined castles I know sitting in its own moat bang in the middle of town.
