Somerset Hideaway

Sitting on Shipham village green, 500ft up in the Mendip hills sits the Penscot Inn.  Originally 3 cottages it is now a friendly 3* Inn with 12 en suite rooms which are simply furnished and decorated in contemporary colours

All rooms have either bath or shower powered by our new pressurised water system, new beds, organic toiletries, hospitality tray and flat screen tv with freeview.  Free wi fi.

Whether you wish to walk the Mendip Way (we provide clothes drying facilities) and admire the beautiful Somerset countryside, enjoy the delights of Bristol, Bath and Wells or explore mystic Glastonbury we are ideally situated.  There are 10 golf courses within easy reach, horse riding and shooting as well as Clarkes village Street and Weston Super Mare.  Just take your pick.

Downstairs you can relax in either the bar with its French windows overlooking the village green (log fire in winter) or the adjoining Garden room. Food is available in both these areas daily 12-2 and 6-9 (6-8 Sunday)

With our food the emphasis is on quality. Meals are freshly prepared and all our meat is sourced from the local area.  Our menus change with the seasons and availability and we are happy to cater for individual dietary needs, please just ask.
