The George at Nunney - As featured in The Guardian, 6 June 2009Explore Bath and the West Country from The George at Nunney, a 17th century coaching inn with bar, restaurant and B&B hotel facilities facing the romantic moatedd ruin of the 14th century Nunney Castle.Nunney is in a tranquil and picturesque conservation area close to:- Babington House (2 miles)- Frome (2 miles)- Longleat House and Safari Park (5 miles)- Royal Bath and West Showground (10 miles)- Stourhead House and Gardens (National Trust) (12 miles)- Glastonbury Festival (12 miles)- Wells (14 miles)- Bath (20 miles)With Stonehenge, Avebury, Salisbury, Shaftesbury, Bristol and Cheddar Gorge all within an hour's drive, this is the ideal B&B 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 Times"Dominated 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 TimesUnder new management 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 log fire before a gastronomic 3-course dinner in the 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 walled 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." Miles Kington, The IndependentMost of The George's nine guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms with shower or bath, television and tea/coffee making equipment. Two superior four-poster bed rooms with en-suite bathroom are available. The George at Nunney operates a non-smoking policy throughout. A full English breakfast is included; please contact a member of staff if you would like a Continental breakfast delivered to your room.The George at Nunney is an ideal location from which to explore the World Heritage city of Bath, Bristol, Wells, Glastonbury, Cheddar Gorge, Stonehenge and Salisbury.
