Think big and beautiful; Edwardian homeliness blended seamlessly with the most gorgeous period features, up to the minute comforts, and an absolutely stunning location to boot. Bossington Hall can sleep up to 30 people in 15 gorgeously styled bedrooms, with 14 sumptuous bathrooms - that's a lot of space for a lot of fun for those happy group stays, whether it's a family holiday, a gathering of friends, or a special celebration.
Bossington Hall is elevated high above the beautiful Porlock Vale with spectacular sweeping views of Exmoor and the Bristol Channel. To sit in bed with a cup of tea and gaze out over such spectacular scenery - well, we couldn't think of a better way to start the day! Then perhaps a stroll around the enchanting grounds, and time spent reflecting by the tranquil mill pond or among the meandering paths and giant gunnera in the peaceful water gardens. Spend an afternoon playing tennis and sip refreshing lemonade in the cool of the thatched courtside pavilion. Have family fun and games playing football or badminton, and watching the young 'uns clambering about in the play area.
If you can wrench yourself away from the idyll of Bossington Hall, you'll find lots to do in the immediate area and beyond. Right on your doorstep is the National Trust Holnicote Estate, with acres of woodland and fields to explore, and it's only a short distance to the South West Coast Path where you can enjoy some fantastic cliff top walks. Just a five minute drive away is the charming village of Porlock, with it's little shops and eateries and an art gallery, or soak up the tranquility at Porlock Weir. For traditional seaside fun head to Minehead, just 10 minutes away - you'll find shops and supermarkets, but most of all there's a vast sandy beach where you can play all day. Dunster is a must too, with it's quaint market square and fortified castle, and if you fancy some fossil hunting, head to Kilve Beach.
Further afield there's heaps more of Exmoor to explore - the dramatic cliff tops, rolling valleys and wooded coombes are dotted with pretty market towns and villages, with plenty of opportunity for a pub lunch or a cream tea. Stroll up to Selworthy Beacon, just a few miles away and don't miss the picture postcard village of Selworthy itself; climb Dunkery Beacon, the highest point in the National Park, go to Tarr Steps and Watersmeet, have a drink by the river at Dulverton. Or head to one of the bigger towns for some retail therapy - over to Taunton or down to Exeter. Return home to Bossington Hall to relax on the terrace and then gather together for a big feast in the Dining Room, and a sing-a-long around the piano in the Big Room, or a game of rummy in the Card Room, before settling down for a restful night's sleep. To stay at Bossington Hall is absolute bliss and you'll probably find it hard to leave!
