About Karen Price

It is always a pleasure for me to welcome guests to my home, either on a bed and breakfast basis or in our beautiful self catering cottage. My background is split between working in the hospitality industry, both having run a hotel for the first 10 years of my career, followed by being the front of house Manager for a very good restaurant in Wells. Running alongside these activities, I have always been involved in renovation of old buildings, including properties in France and most recently, the total renovation of the Grade II Listed Post House and Old Bakery. Both of these properties have gone on to feature in interior magazines, most recently, "House Beautiful", "Traditional Homes and Interiors" and "Homes and Antiques".

Karen Price purchased this house in 2006

Why Karen Price chose Radstock

I bought the property because of the potential it had. It needed total renovation and covered a lot of floor space. The position is wonderful, just 5 miles from the City of Wells and just 20 minutes from the gorgeous Georgian City of Bath.

What makes this house unique

The beauty of staying at The Post House is that you feel as though you have been transported to the South of France. The property benefits from French Country furniture and is decorated in French grey's yet with a warm yellow wash on the walls in the Provence Style Courtyard. Just 5 miles away, you find England's smallest City of Wells with it's stunning Cathedral and Bishops Palace and just 25 minutes drive to the gorgeous Georgian City of Bath with all its beauty and excitement. If you don't want to cook for yourself, we are spoiled for choice with a great Gastro Pub just 2 miles away, a village pub half a mile walk and a michelin starred pub close by.

Property was in excellent condition and very clean

  • 5 of 5

We certainly enjoyed our stay at the post house. It was centrally located near Bath, Wells and Bristol. We were graciously welcomed by our host and given a box of home baked cookies and a quart of milk for our morning coffee. The cookies were delicious!! There is a bus stop within a few steps of the house which made it very convenient if driving in the city is intimidating. The bus will take you in the direction of Wells and Glastonbury going west and to Bristol going east. The accomodations were exactly what we were looking for. The house was very spacious and immaculate. We would certainly recommend this to anyone traveling in the area.
