Stayed here on a business trip and it was an absolute haven. Karen and John could not have been more welcoming or accommodating. Comfortable bed, and lots of lovely touches in the room. Delicious breakfast. Can't wait to come back for a proper holiday!

This property was the highlight of our three week tour of the UK and lived up to its description of luxury, boutique B and B. We stayed in the suite and were so content that we could easily have spent a week instead of two nights. We loved the romantic climb upstairs with the rope railing, the beautiful original artwork,...

I've lost count on how many times we've stayed here now! It really is our home from home. Karen, John & Monty are always welcoming and super lovely hosts! Karen's famous butter melt biscuits still fail to disappoint! Best breakfast I've had ever in a B&B, always hot and cooked perfectly, cereals, cooked breakfast, fruit salad, juices, hot drinks, everything...

Came here for a surprise weekend away for my birthday last year and it was absolutely beautiful. We stayed in the self-catering side/the old bakery and it was just perfect, it felt like our own little home and is stunning! The decor was just amazing and designed extremely well. The hostess was lovely and very welcoming and would love to...

Just spent three lovely days at this superb B&B and the welcome could not have been warmer, what a lovely lady Karen is. Stayed in the blue room in the attic space, a lovely cosy room with character and a big deep square bath. It had the usual kettle t-bags etc. Plus delicious home made biscuits and a small fridge...

What a great find. This b&b was perfect in every way. Warm, cosy, luxurious and Karen was a superb hostess, cook and tour guide. One day we had a delicious breakfast round the open fire, the next we were sittingin the delightful courtyard having breakfast in the sunshine feeling as if we were in the south of France.

This is when I love Tripadvisor! A place with ratings like these is guaranteed to be good and The Post House definitely didn't disappoint. Beautifully presented and the perfect place to spend our anniversary along with an evening meal at the michelin-starred Pony and Trap nearby. We stayed in the Suite which gave us a bathroom and little sitting room....

My partner and I stayed here for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary and it was absolutely perfect. We stayed in The Suite which just oozed charm and character everywhere you looked. The homemade biscuits in the bedroom were the best I've even eaten, the rooms were all warm, comfortable and relaxing and the freestanding bath was amazing. Breakfast was...

We stayed at The Post House for just a few days...and it wasn't long enough. Karen has built a wonderfully calming home in French/Shabby Chic style with a warm welcome and perfect, unfussy breakfasts of excellent quality.

We stayed here this weekend for a weekend in Bath and to visit the Giant Flee Market at Shepton. The Post House was perfectly placed for both.

“Suite is best if you want to avoid bumping your head.”

“The Suite - Has view, separate living room and bathroom. Blue Room - Quieter room away from main road, hot tub style bath, cosier feel.”

“If you don't mind low headroom the blue room is very cosy or there is a self contained sweet that is very spacious which can be self catering. But I would be happy with any room.”

“Ground floor suite available; main road to the front but this didn't disturb thanks to secondary glazing.”

“We stayed in the blue room we think and this was off the road so no noise trouble. Take care if you are tall though, the ceiling height is low in places.”
