Front of Shapwick House

Shapwick House Hotel

Shapwick House was built in the Spring of 1489 by Glastonbury Abbey. 
For the next 200 years there followed a quick succession of tenants until Shapwick settled into one family ownership at the beginning of the 17th century.

A fashionable manor house was created from the bones of the 15th century structure under the instruction of Sir Henry Rolle of Shapwick - a wealthy London lawyer, later to become Lord Chief Justice of the Commonwealth and in 1654, Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Many of the interior features date from this time and Shapwick House is now a unique lived-in Medieval manor noted for its warmth and hospitality.
