Ham Bottom - Accommodation
The minute you walk into Ham Bottom you'll feel all your worries drift away; what strikes you first is how calm and welcoming it is; spacious, light and airy, and so stylish - soothing neutral tones with bold splashes of colour, big fat sofas await you, wonderful views from every window… it all helps you to slip easily into your holiday; you know it’s going to be good.
Step in through the door and straight ahead of you is the games room with a pool table, a big TV and plenty of room to get comfy for a movie night - you won't have far to go for refills of popcorn as the kitchen/dining room is right next door. The whole living and entertaining area is so sociable; you can cook and chat, nip off for a game of pool - brilliant! The kitchen has everything you need to take the stress out of cooking for your large group, but if it still doesn't grab you book up one of our tried and tested professional caterers (see Extras), they'll soon whip up a feast to tantalise your tastebuds; it's a great idea if you've a special occasion to celebrate, like a big birthday or anniversary. The long dining table is equally good for chirpy breakfast times, relaxed lunches or happy dinners; it comfortably seats your whole group and there's soft lighting to add to the ambience.
Off the dining area is a lobby leading to utility room and through to the pool hall, an amazing space with the pool centre place, a sauna and shower to one end, room for loungers, and huge bi-fold doors that you can pull back to let the sunshine roll in for a relaxed holiday vibe.
To the left of the games room are Bedrooms 1 and 2, both access friendly with TVs and ensuite wet rooms. All the beds at Ham Bottom are zip and link so you can decide how you want them arranged - as twins or super kings; let us know after you've made your booking and we'll do the rest. A wide staircase takes you from the games room to the living room, which has a very gentle ambience that entices you to curl up on the sofa and spend a while reading your book, or to sit quietly chatting and enjoying the glorious views across the valley. Open the full height doors, step out onto the balcony, it’s a lovely spot for morning coffee or for an evening drink as the sun sets. We love how this room is light and bright in the summer yet takes on such a warm homely glow on dark winter nights when it’s all nice and cosy by lamplight.
Off to the left of the living room are Bedrooms 3 and 4 and to the right, Bedrooms 5 and 6. Bedrooms 3 and 5 can both accommodate an extra guest bed (charged) and have ensuite bathrooms with a bath, TV and separate shower area. Bedrooms 4 and 6 have ensuite wet rooms. The beds at Ham Bottom are super comfy, there’s no noise and no light disturbance, the perfect recipe for restful sleep.
Outside the 2 acre grounds are surrounded by beautiful countryside; sometimes the air is full of birdsong, be still for a moment and listen. Absolute bliss. Gather for happy barbecues, play family games on the lawn, watch the young ‘uns having fun on the climbing frame and bouncing about on the trampoline. Slip into the hot tub and if it starts to rain, no worries, just pull the over; a few strides away is the BBQ lodge, all cosy with twinkly lights to sit beneath, and reindeer rugs to keep you snug. There’s plenty of room for you all to get together out there, swap stories, tell jokes, have a sing-song. There really is something for all ages at Ham Bottom so we get it when guests don't feel the need to go out anywhere; we were more than happy here, they tell us. Come and find your happy too, book a stay today!
