More Information

The Old Ship Hotel in Mere is a hotel full of rustic charm and character. Once the private residence of Sir John Coventry MP (untill 1682). It was his banishment from court which lead to the saying "sent to Coventry" being central to the three counties of Wiltshire, Dorset and Somerset we are ideally situated for exploring the area from bath to Salisbury to Bournemouth. It is an area of picturesque villages, historic places to visit and breath taking scenery, all within easy travelling distance. The beautiful 'Stourhead House' and gardens are only 3 miles away and Longleat Safari Park a mere 8 miles away. You will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome at our hotel where you can spend a relaxing time getting to know the locals in either our cozy hotel bar or our lively up beat sports bar.
