Standing in the village of Hemyock on the Somerset/Devon border, this spacious Victorian house is set within the grounds of Culmbridge Manor and offers excellent accommodation for up to 12 people plus 2 cots and 2 toddler beds. With six bedrooms and two reception rooms, the property also benefits from a large private garden with a great play area, and the exclusive use of a large (12m x 4m, depth 1.2m to 1.8m) heated indoor swimming-pool and games room.

Fully renovated and refurbished in 2007, and with shops and pubs in the village, the property makes a relaxing home for two or three families wishing to holiday together, or the ideal property for celebrations, hen parties or small corporate gatherings. Hemyock - recorded in the Domesday Book as Hamock - is located just south of Wellington, on the Blackdown Hills - an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Blackdowns have a network of footpaths, bridleways, lanes and tracks, providing superb walking, cycling and horse riding country. There are quaint villages with local pubs for refreshments and dining, and a variety of outdoor pursuits to try your hand at, ranging from go-karting to ballooning and gliding to golf and fishing.

Situated within easy driving distance off the M5, there is heaps to see and do just a little further afield - visit historic Killerton House and Gardens (NT), the cathedral city of Exeter, Diggerland, Crealy Adventure Park, Go-Ape, or Forde Abbey and Gardens. The stunning Jurassic coast is within easy travelling distance and has some delightful beaches, from the quaint fishing town of Lyme Regis to the Regency resort of Sidmouth. For the surfers, the North Devon beaches are within an hour's drive, or if you love the big outdoors, spend a day amongst the rugged beauty of Exmoor or Dartmoor National Parks. The county town of Taunton is not far away, nor the famous lace and antique town of Honiton. A great area with something for all ages!
