Hunstrete House - Bristol

Pensford Nr. Bath, Bristol, BS39 4NS

Venue Introduction

The wooded countryside that surrounds the Hunstrete parkland has created a wonderful sanctuary for an impressive variety of wildlife. Indeed, all 25 ensuite bedrooms are named after birds found here. Located only seven miles south of Bath en route to the cathedral city of Wells and the historic port of Bristol, Hunstrete House is a delightful refuge: "There is something quintessentially English about this delightful refuge." Andrew Harper's Hideaway Report. Hunstrete was recorded in William the Conqueror's Domesday Book and has a long lineage from King Athelstan, 963AD, to the Popham family that held it during the last four centuries. Buried ruins and a folly from an unfinished grand mansion are parts of a fascinating history. A survey of 1517 alludes to a beautiful manor in a sylvan setting rebuilt in the time of Abbot Chinnock (Glastonbury Abbott) 1375 – 1420.

Additional Notes:

The quintessential English country house hotel, Hunstrete House is an 18th century Georgian manor house, idyllically situated in 71 acres of the most beautiful woodland, gardens and deer park; the deer are often seen just across the lawn from the house. Tucked in the folds of the lovely Mendip Hills, the peace, quiet and elegant charm of this magical place envelope you as you arrive down an avenue of trees. Conde Nast Traveller named Hunstrete one of the Ten Best English Country House Hotels. Beautifully furnished with antiques, original paintings and collections of fine porcelain, the elegant public rooms are much as they were when this was a private house; large and luxuriously comfortable, oh so inviting to the wearing traveller, hankering for a refreshing pot of tea, a glass of wine or a place to rest with a good book. Open fires burn brightly on cool nights, the acres of gardens are divinely fragrant and in spring and summer and the tennis courts are never crowded.
