Description

Situated just 20 minutes from Bath, Wells and Glastonbury, in the market town of Midsomer Norton, The Old Priory is reputed to be one of the oldest houses in Somerset, with records showing that it was first established in 1170. This historically significant building was an Augustinian Priory in early medieval times, later being seized by Henry VIII and bequeathed to Christchurch College, Oxford. It was owned by Christchurch until 1712 when it was sold to a private local buyer. A secret tunnel is said to have existed linking the nearby 15th century church to The Old Priory, which was possibly used for escape and refuge in the days of religious persecution. The building was later used as a school for young ladies in the Victorian and Edwardian era.Today, the ancient honeyed stonework and a beautiful walled garden bursting with colour in the summer months greet you upon entering the gravelled driveway. Within this Grade II* building many original architectural features are retained, including
