Somerton Court Country House

Somerton Court Country House

Somerton Court is a large historic country house believed to date in part from the 12th Century. It is situated at Lower Somerton on the eastern edge of Somerton the royal town of ancient Wessex set in some 55 acres of parkland and gardens. Although believed to incorporate Roman remains or materials in its foundations the first known record of Somerton Court dates to an 1176 purchase of land by William de Erleigh. He presumably built a manor house here and the new holding - later known as the manor of Somerton Erleigh - remained with his decendants and their relations for over 350 years. The manor was a small one and was used for income and dowries rather than as a family seat. Most of its owners were rather quiet - other than in the 1400s when the manor was held by a number of people who were either slain or executed during the 100 Years War and the Wars of the Roses. Among these unfortunate owners were Henry le Scrope and James Butler Earl of Ormond and Wiltshire (both of whom married owners of the manor) who were executed in 1415 and 1461 respectively. Somerton Court s most famous owner however was undoubtedly Edward IV s brother the Duke of Clarence - best remembered for having been drowned in a butt of malmsey in 1478. The manor house was later owned by Henry Percy the sixth Earl of Northumberland who sold the estate in 1530 to pay some of his massive debts. After passing through a number of hands it was bought in 1597 by James Fisher. (In 1597 another part

The Lynch Country House B&B

The Lynch Country House B&B

The Lynch Country House bed and breakfast is a Grade II listed property built in 1812 and is a classic example of Georgian architecture strongly based on symmetry, perspective and values of formal classical temple structure. The Lynch sits in the heart of lush Somerset countryside on the edge of the delightful medieval market town of Somerton, the ancient capital of Wessex. The house reflects the feeling of restful tranquillity that surrounds it. The interior has been lovingly restored and refurbished with antiques. It is intimate and very comfortable.

It features a period 'Sun Bonnet Lantern' at the apex of the house, designed to flood the central core of the building with sunlight. Guests can climb the stairs to the observation deck at the top of the house. On a clear day they will enjoy far reaching views of the grounds, Somerton and beyond.

The word 'lynch' means 'a ridge or terrace on the face of a down' and the house stands at the top of the ridge leading down to the Cary river valley. We planted more than 2800 trees 20 years ago and more adventurous guests are most welcome to explore the surrounding woods which are home to much wildlife.

The well tended grounds include a large lawned area, topiary, a rill, many specimen trees and flowers and a lake stocked with a variety of ornamental fish and our famous resident Black Swans.

We take our beds and our breakfasts very seriously to ensure that your stay is a memorable experience.

We have three room categories at The Lynch Country House and all offer the same British, 5 star, hand made, mattresses found in some of the best hotels in Britain. They are covered with fabulous goose down and feather duvets and pillows. Finally the beds are dressed with crisp white linen to ensure you have the very best and most comfortable night's sleep.

All rooms have luxury fluffy white bathrobes and towels for extra comfort. Our Duck Island mandarin and bergamot bath toiletries are environmentally friendly, as well as never being tested on animals. All rooms have flat screen TV’s and offer complimentary Wi-Fi access for your convenience.

We hope you enjoy your stay.
