Why Stay at The Mount Somerset Hotel & Spa?

Well, it’s definitely because of the idyllic setting, our luxury bedrooms (some with private hot tubs), not to mention the outstanding service of our friendly team. The Mount Somerset truly stands out amongst country house hotels in Somerset.

Perhaps it’s our boutique spa with its bubbling hydrotherapy tub, thermal suites and ESPA treatments, or our 3 AA Rosette restaurant, headed up by our talented head chef Mark Potts. Then there’s the relaxed lounge with open fires, perfect for relaxing with a cocktail and canapés after a day of discovering Somerset.

Our proximity to the Mendip Hill’s ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’ and the stunning Cheddar Gorge is perfect for daytime rambles, but it’s all of these elements combined that make The Mount Somerset such a unique destination.
