Fuzzy Orchard is a fantastic rural retreat sleeping 12-14, combining space and luxury with comfort and style. Set in its own 2 acres of grounds in a private valley, it has its own attached indoor heated swimming pool, a sauna and games room. Outside there's a big hot tub with a domed cover that you can pull right back when the weather is good, a cosy Nordic style BBQ lodge and a play area, plus huge lawns to run around on. It's the perfect place for families and large groups to enjoy a restful holiday or to gather together to celebrate a special occasion.
Fuzzy Orchard enjoys a peaceful location within 80 acres of private land; the outlook is of rolling green hills, lush pastures, paddocks where horses graze, and fields where sheep feed. The tiny hamlet of Wellisford lies deep in the heart of the Somerset countryside in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there are plenty of opportunities to get outside and explore, with walks from the doorstep, and golfing, fishing and horse riding nearby. Stroll through the fields and along the lane to the White Post Cafe and have lunch in the garden; it's only about a mile so it won't take you long. What's really nice is to drive through the lanes to the little village of Holcombe Rogus to buy cider made to age old methods at Ridgeway Cider.
You don't have to drive far to see some of the delights that Somerset has to offer; Exmoor National Park with its diverse and beautiful scenery, and the magnificent Dunster Castle (NT) isn't far away. Go and stroll along the river at Watersmeet or Tarr Steps, or visit Porlock and Lynton & Lynmouth on the Somerset coast. Head into the wild and rugged Quantock Hills for the day, climb the picturesque combes; Hodders Combe and Holford Combe take you right up to the bracken clad heaths; the glorious Blackdown Hills have beauty spots like the tranquil Otterhead Lakes, and vantage points at Staple Hill, Castle Neroche, Culm Beacon and Wellington Monument, where you can see for miles and miles across the spectacular unspoilt countryside. You'll find plenty of pretty villages with welcoming country pubs where you can enjoy a lazy lunch and sample the local brew. If there are shopaholics amongst you who need their fix they should head to the inland county towns of Exeter and Taunton, or to Clarks Village on the Somerset Levels.
For family fun go to Flip Out Wellington, Crealy Adventure Park, hop on a steam train with the West Somerset Railway and though it's a little further, Paignton or Bristol Zoo both make for a happy day out. If you fancy a good old fashioned day at the coast, within an hour you can be on the Jurassic Coast of East Devon or West Dorset where you can potter along the esplanade and play on the sand at Regency Sidmouth, go fossil hunting at Charmouth, or take a mackerel fishing trip from Lyme Regis. In the other direction are the beaches of the Somerset coast; Watchet, Minehead, and Blue Anchor, or further up Weston-Super-Mare or Burnham-on-Sea. When you get back to Fuzzy Orchard get yourself a glass of something nice and sit out on the patio whilst the sun goes down, chill out in the hot tub beneath a sky full of stars, and snuggle up beneath the twinkly lights in the BBQ lodge tellng stories late into the night. Just imagine.
