The charmingly named Dancing Hill shares its name with the hill where it stands; it’s a very peaceful spot and the views are panoramic, stretching across almost the whole of Somerset and over to Wales on a clear day. 6 bedrooms sleep 12 guests, plus there’s room for 2 more at an extra charge each; there’s a games room, a large hot tub and a 4m swim spa, big secure gardens and a paddock. This gorgeous large group holiday house is a wonderful place to stay for multi-generational family holidays, for breaks with friends and their children, or to come and celebrate a special birthday or anniversary with the people you love most in the world.
You can happily while away the time here; there’s no need to go far. Get yourselves stocked in with a delivery of local meat and fresh produce from Pyne's of Somerset down the road and you’ll be sorted. If you fancy a stroll, just a stone’s throw away there are woodlands and footpaths that take you into the Quantock Hills AONB; go up to Fyne Court for pond dipping and a picnic, look out for wild ponies grazing at Cothelstone Hill.
Down at North Newton you can amble along the canalside Somerset Space Walk along and then go back to the tea room at Maunsel Lock for cake; hire kayaks or a self-drive motor boat from Somerset Boat Centre and take to the waters, otherwise book up for one of their narrowboat trips.
A little further afield you can visit some of the places you can see from the house; spend a day exploring the unique landscape of the Somerset Levels where you can make a summit bid at Burrow Mump or Glastonbury Tor; amble around the tranquil nature reserves, abundant with wildlife. Venture on to Wells to take in the splendour of the cathedral and the Bishop’s Palace. You could even go as far as Bristol and journey into the past onboard SS Great Britain or take the kids to Bristol Aquarium. Maybe Bath appeals for a day trip, with its world famous Roman Baths, Royal Crescent and Pulteney Bridge.
The Somerset Coast isn’t far, so a day by the sea could be on the cards; there’s good old-fashioned bucket-and-spade fun to be had at Weston-Super-Mare or Burnham-on-Sea, or for something different you can embrace the wilds at East Quantoxhead or go to Kilve for rockpooling, fossil hunting and dog walks.
If you can’t do without your retail therapy head over to Clark’s Village for bargains galore, or pootle down the M5 to Exeter. If you’re after family fun go to Animal Adventure Park or Brean Theme Park, or a little further to Wookey Hole to explore the caves, the Enchanted Valley and Dinosaur Grove. Come back to Dancing Hill, have drinks on the patio or down in the paddock while the sun slips over the horizon. Exactly the kind of thing that happy large group holidays are all about. Book today!
