Formerly two cottages, Riverside has been tastefully converted to make one stunning, boutique style holiday retreat. Set back off the road in a pretty hamlet just outside the village of Stoke St Gregory on the Somerset Levels, the property offers top notch modern styling with rural charm and quirky touches, in a peaceful rural location. Perfect for those family holidays and large group stays where you just want to relax and get away from it all - whether it's for a week long holiday or for a weekend to celebrate something special.
Sleeping 12 guests in 6 good sized bedrooms (3 en suite), Riverside has 3 reception rooms, a spacious kitchen/breakfast room, a dining room, and a games room. Sitting on the banks of the River Tone, the property has a secure enclosed garden with swings for the younger people in your party, and beneath a leafy arbour is a hot tub where you can sit back and soak away any troubles. There's a private, gravelled off-road parking area for seven cars; it's got the lot! (NB: We do ask that there is no noise after 11pm; we must consider neighbouring properties!)
With a pool table and table football, Sky Movies package, Bluetooth music system and wifi, there's no excuse for saying there's nothing to do. But actually - why not do nothing? Take a drink out on to the riverbank at the back; admire the far reaching views and watch the sun go down. Bliss.
The Somerset Levels have a unique beauty of their own; it's an ancient landscape traced with rhynes (pronounced reens) where withies have been grown for hundreds of years for basket making. There are many tracks and footpaths to walk; stroll along the river to Burrow Mump, climb to the top and come back down to the King Alfred Inn for lunch, or have a wander at the Willows & Wetlands Visitor Centre just up the road. The county town of Taunton is only a few miles away and has a good mix of high street and independent shops, and eateries, or within an hour or so are Bath and Bristol. Exmoor National Park is not too far away and makes for a good day out exploring the wild heaths and rolling hills, followed by a scrumptious cream tea in a little tea shop. Head to the Somerset Coast or the beaches of East Devon or West Dorset (the famous Jurassic coast) and go beachcombing, rockpooling or fossil hunting.
