In a tucked away location in one of Somerset's most dramatic valleys right at the foot of the Quantock Hills, Thorncombe is one of five luxury timber-clad holiday lodges. The property comfortably sleeps up to 12 guests in 5 spacious en suite bedrooms, and with the big open plan living area there are plenty of opportunities for socialising. The private indoor swimming pool is a huge benefit of this wonderful property, offering plenty of scope for leisure and relaxation.

All the bedrooms have zip-and-link beds which you can have arranged as twins or superkings; Bedroom 4 has a zip and link plus 2 more single beds, so it makes a great family room or is good for older children as a dormitory. All bedrooms have flatscreen TVs and en suite bathrooms, four with baths with hand held showers, and one with a shower.

Thorncombe was made for happy sociable holidays and has a huge living space with a big dining table where you can all sit round and tuck into a scrumptious celebratory dinner. To one end are sofas to curl up on, a flatscreen TV (great for movie nights) and a woodburning stove for added warmth and a cosy glow on those chillier days.

To the other end of the living room is a games area with a pool table; muster up some in-house competition with a pool tournament or have a few games whilst dinner is cooking.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all mod cons to make self catering hassle free, including a double oven, fridge-freezer and two dishwashers, as well as lots of up to the minute gadgets. There's also a handy utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer. If you have a special occasion to celebrate or just fancy treating yourselves, we have a list of  excellent tried and tested local caterers who will come in and create a feast to tantalise your tastebuds. 

If the weather is good make the most of it and dine outdoors; the large patio has ample garden furniture and a barbecue. Children of all ages will love it here as there's plenty to keep them busy - besides the fabulous indoor swimming pool and the pool table, outside there's some a childrens play area with a sturdy wooden climbing frame and a super bouncy trampoline. With all this you might not even feel the need to go out anywhere.

The versatility of Thorncombe makes it ideal for all kinds of large groups; people love it for those getaways with two or three families, or multi generations where grandparents come along too, but it's equally good for reunions of friends, for hen weekends and for team building days away or corporate hospitality.

And it's a great large group holiday home anytime of year; it's light and airy with floor to ceiling doors that you can have wide open in the summer; in the colder months just pull the curtains and the underfloor heating beneath the Travertine tiles will keep it all cosy. The bedrooms are all carpeted so you get out of bed and out your feet down and it feels all snug and homely. 

Whether you come for a week long holiday, a mid week stay or just for a weekend, you'll find that Thorncombe has all you need for a happy and relaxing time. Take lots of photos, take home memories to treasure.
