All twelve guests will be staying at Hurds Hill, a Regency country house with Victorian additions. Little fact for you: It was the home of Langport’s most famous resident, Walter Bagehot, who is regarded as one of the 19th century’s most influential writers on government, banking and finance. He was editor of the Economist magazine for 16 years from 1860 to 1876.
The present owners acquired the property in 2011 and have spent two years renovating the house, which now offers comfortable rooms and wonderful communal spaces to relax. The place has oodles of character thanks to the owners vast collection of antiques, books and collectables. The house is set in 5 acres of private and peaceful grounds with far-reaching views over the Somerset Levels.
