Hunstrete House ...the quintessential English Country House Hotel, only a stone's throw from the Roman city of Bath and the historic port of Bristol, located in the heart of the West Country. The great charm of Hunstrete House is it is more like a house than a hotel. As you drive through the avenue of trees and parkland that precede Hunstrete House you immediately feel the peace, quiet and elegant charm of this magical place.

The House sits on 71 acres of parkland and deer park. From the House you see peaceful views over the deer park and horse paddocks towards the Mendip Hills. Romantic gardens surround the house and feature a croquet lawn and tennis court.

Entering the 18 century Georgian manor house, you find it beautifully furnished with antiques, original paintings and collections of fine porcelain. Log fires burn brightly throughout the winter and fragrant flowers from Hunstrete's orchards and gardens fill the house in summer.

Hunstrete is just 6 miles from the elegant city of Bath, 11 miles from Bristol and its airport, and about 100 miles from London. It's an ideal touring hub for the West Country's historic cities and attractions: Roman Bath, the Cathedral city of Wells, King Arthur's Glastonbury Tor, Stonehenge, the historic port of Bristol and the country estates of Dyrham Park, Longleat House and Stourhead.
